A no pull dog harness is generally the best equipment for managing the pulling behavior while you train for polite walking.
As a dog trainer, I’d strongly prefer for owners to learn how to teach their dogs not to pull – but I’m also cognizant that unless an owner feels secure in her ability to control the dog, she will tend to avoid taking the dog out on walks for training. The various types of no-pull dog harnesses provide, in my experience, the least harmful way to give many owners the window of opportunity to reinforce – and thereby train – polite leash walking.
What many people do not realize is that choosing the proper equipment for your dog is the first step to getting a dog to walk nicely on a loose lead. In this blog, we will explore many of the options available at your local pet store and how to know what collar, harness and leash will work best for your pet. As positive reward based trainers, we will give you our recommendations as well as pros and cons of each type of collar and leash.
Walk Your Dog with Love Harness
This is also a very good harness when walking your dog.
A dog walking harness is a simple yet effective tool that you can use for training purposes as well as when taking your dog for his regular daily walk.Once you have decided that a dog walking harness is the right choice for your dog, you need to learn about the different types of harnesses on the market. Let's take a look at some types of harnesses so to distinguish a dog walking harness from a regular one.There are different types of harnesses on the market. Some harnesses may actually encourage pulling, while a dog walking harness is made in such a way to discourage it.There are many varieties of dog walking harnesses with a front-connection attachment on the market. Some popular ones are Premier's Easy Walk harness and Soft Touch Concepts' Sensible harness. This harness is characterized by a front-attachment ring that is located in between the dog's chest where the leash attaches. Because no pressure is put on the front of the dog's body, no opposition reflex will take place. When a dog pulls on this type of dog harness, pressure is distributed evenly across the body. With a front-connection harness and some training, even a large dog can learn loose-leash walking. If you are planning to invest in a dog walking harness to stop a dog from pulling, consider that it's not the harness per se that stops the pulling, but the actual training. It may, therefore, take some patience to actually see results after using a dog walking harness for the very first time.
