      My German shepherd dog has always been spirited, he has pulled since he was a puppy and nothing that I tried,(including training,)stopped him from pulling me, the older he got of course the stronger he got, and the more I got dragged around. One day despite my better judgement, I decided to walk with him into town, the journey was hellish and I ended up tying his leash to a lamppost, running into a pet shop and bursting into tears!

      The pet shop owner calmed me down and sold me a special anti-pull harness, which is made by Sporn and called the ‘Sporn Non Pull Harness.’ I put it onto


      my dog with help from the owner (it is a bit tricky to figure out at first, but once you have done it a few times it becomes second nature,) the results really were instant, I was really, really, happy! For the first time in years I felt confident to walk my dog.

      The harness works by tightening around your dog’s front legs and shoulders when it pulls, this makes an upwards force and the dog actually cannot pull.

      Here are the pros of the harness… 1. It stops my dog pulling 2. It is padded on the cord that runs under the dog’s legs, which is important for comfort.

      3.


      • It is fully machine washable (it will need washing about every two months - my dog doesn’t smell, but the harness does get cheesy.

        4. You can fix an attachment that goes from the harness to your dog’s collar.

        And the cons… 1. In one situation where my dog was trying madly to get over to another dog, he somehow twisted backwards and managed to take his whole harness off, leaving me holding an empty harness! You can remedy this by attaching a fastening that clips to his collar. I used a looped bit of cord that had a clip on the end, I looped it around the metal heart

        which is on the top of the harness, and then after I put the harness on him I clip the clip to his collar. That way if he figures out how to wriggle out of the harness again I will still have the lead attached to him.

        Other Info

        I use my harness with an extendable lead; it gives my dog more freedom and inadvertently trains him. Every time he goes too far on the extendable lead, or I push the button that stops it, the lead makes a clicking sound, and then he feels his harness tighten. Now when he hears me push the stop button on the lead he stops and actually waits for me.
