I am looking to buy a for my dog, she is a mutt and weighs about 45 lbs. She has been known to slip out of her previous and pull a lot on walks, so I want something that covers her chest. Does anyone know of a good brand or kind of harness I can get?

    I think the dog doesn`t like the owner/trainer much. In the video where this woman was putting the harness on the dog, the dog whimpered and she told it to be quiet in a commanding way rather than reassuring it. I think she may be good with training but not loving a dog. This dog clearly isn`t comfortable w/her & I think that is why there are so few comments b/c ppl get a bad feeling when they see this poor, unhappy dog.

    By comforting the dog, you reassure the dog that it is okay to exhibit whiney, nervous behavior. By discouraging this behavior, it will lead to a calmer, happier dog. By whimpering, they are exhibiting fear or a sense of imbalance and if you comfort them, it reinforces the behavior.

    whats better the Harness or halter? I have a Great Dane 7 mths 111 lbs and every time I use the Halter he leans in with out any pressure on his face. He walks great on a regular collar tell you are pushing a stroller I need something that he is more comfortable with should I try the harness instead of buying the next size up in the halter? What do you all think?

    I prefer the harness. it takes a while for the dog to get used to the halter so when you buy it you can’t start using it straight away, you have to get them used to it, but the harness you can use immediately. i’ve used both and my dog definitely prefers the harness

    Most good dog harnesses do not size on weight but measurements of girth and neck to ensure a good fit and therefore fido not escaping. The wider the straps the better for comfort and also the softer the material the better. Nylon harnesses rub and chafe dogs and cannot due to their thin straps cover the chest. Fleece dog harnesses with wide straps made of fleece inset with strong webbing are comfy, soft and great looking. The link below has 3 of the best fleece dog harnesses available anywhere, including the brand new eDog fleece dog harness.

    Is she brachycephalic? If not, she doesn’t need to be on a harness. A collar and leash will be fine.

    I buy my weight pull harnesses from this lady. Great harnesses and im sure she can make, or has normal harnesses for walking a dog.

    Since she pulls a lot, you’re not going to make it any better by getting a harness. A harness will simply give her more power over you, since it allows her to put all of her weight into pulling. If you buy a Gentle Leader that goes over the face, I pretty much guarantee you that you won’t have anymore problems. My Pit’s would nearly pull my arms out of their sockets and my hands would be so sore after wards. With the Gentle Leader, they do not pull AT ALL. They don’t like it on their face, and they hate it when it pulls on their face when they try to pull in front of me, so instead they stay right by my side so it doesn’t pull on their face or anything. My cousin has a 105lb. dog and she doesn’t go anywhere without her GL.

    Pulling isn’t so much a harness issue as a training issue. I have a 160 pound saint bernard. He doesn’t pull but be was trained to walk on a leash. It takes some time but is really very doable. Take your dog to obedience training at your local pet store. It’s a hundred dollars very well spent.

    Try the Easy Walk, you can get it at Petco. It really helps with the pulling.
