I am thinking about getting Buddy one of those walking harnesses, to help him not lunge/pull when he sees another dog. (yes, yes, i AM working on teaching Buddy that is not the reaction i want from him, but this IS taking a lil longer than i'd thought, but we ARE getting there.... slowly, slowly, one dog at a time...buddy's got some "dog issues" he is still working on..) Plus, when Craig walks him, Buddy pulls all the way down the street, sniffing stuff and all that, and then the weight is then across Buddy's trachea, and Craig is harder to train than Buddy.. So, I've tried some on Buddy, seems they all have a buckle right exactly where it will hit Buddy's front leg when his leg is moving back...wonder why they don't put the buckle up onto the back..??????? Looked online, most of those have the buckle again, exactly where the dog's elbow would tap the buckle with every step..OR, the buckle would/could rub the backside of buddy's armpit area with each step... THAT'S IT!! I'M HANGING UP MY STETHYSCOPE AND GOING INTO DOG PRODUCT DESIGN!!:msngiggle: Anyone use a harness? Didja like it? what brand did you like/not like? Anyone disapprove of harnesses? I don't know a lot about them...seems a good idea, (for our long walks only, not all day long).... am i wrong? A local dog trainer said only get the kind with a FRONT hook, not the kind that hooks onto their back...Is that true?
