      If you have a dog that pulls, or just want a harness for extra security in case your dog spots that “neighborhood cat” one day and decides to sprint; then this is the harness for you. I have a 95 pound Golden Retriever with a ton of horse power behind her. When I use this harness she is 90% calmer and less likely to pull. This was the only harness I would use when I was pregnant as well and made walks so much easier and more confident.

      The trick to this harness is that that leash


      attaches to a ring in the front; whereas most common harnesses attach at the back. This is a common misunderstanding for dog owners: they think that they need a harness that attaches in the back where in reality that only enables the dog to pull more as if it’s pulling a sled. When the dog attempts to pull with this harness, it pulls the dog’s legs together, making it near impossible for them to get much force behind their pull.

      I know it doesn’t hurt her, it just makes it incredibly uncomfortable for her and makes her think twice about trying to pull me around the neighborhood. This harness is pretty resilient too. We’ve been using it for the better of four years and it’s still in pretty good shape.

      We had an incident when she was younger and tried to chew her way through it but luckily I’m half decent at sewing and was able to repair the tear. By the way, it is easily repairable too.

      While this harness works great at keeping your pup from pulling, there are a few minor drawbacks to it.

      For one, it makes her a bit more “springy” ...

      when she gets excited. Since she can’t pull forward, she tends to jump upwards in an attempt to greet people. She’s usually a leaner and since she can’ lean into people, it makes her want to jump up at them.

      With a little practice I’ve learned to control that issue better though. Another issue is that it makes her incredibly itchy. She normally itches from her regular dog collar but that is only subject to the neck.

      Since this goes around her body she stops to scratch at random points during her walk. These

      are only minor drawbacks and the pros far outweigh the cons. Another great thing about this specific harness is that it is sort of color coded.

      This type of harness was a little difficult for me to figure out how to put it on her at first, as there are a lot of buckles, but the fact that it has a silver side on it makes me aware that that particular buckle goes on the bottom. I’ve learned that is you only unbuckle the silver one, you can easily slide it on and off her head without having to undo any of the other buckles.

I definitely am pleased with the use of the above no pull harness. I have a 75 lb pit bull who is also a pulling machine . This harness worked great but making sure it fits properly is crucial. Buying one too big will allow them to get their chest out of it , I learned that the hard way.

Once fitted it did give me some leverage when he really wanted to pull but after a while he figured out how to lower his body to the ground and really dig into the ground to get where he wanted to go.

Training tools never replace training in general but this was definitely a life saver to get him out and moving . It is an easily washable item and the price was very affordable. I got mine on sale at the pet store for $ 18.

I did notice some where on the nylon loop at the chest piece after a while and ended up purchasing a new no pull made by Sporn but I would not recommend it for a long haired breed like the Golden.

thats so crazy that he figured out how to “dig in to the ground” to avoid the pull. my golden is super smart but shes too energetic to lower herself during a walk :)
