I just burst out laughing thinking of how frustrated some of my dogs would have been if they were pulling and pulling and just kept spinning around to face me. It sounds like a great idea though. I am so glad it is working out so well for you and Hallie.
everytime Lynn tries to pull, and gets turned back to me she starts barking and trying to pull again. and then she started pulling backwards! walking backwards to try to get out of the harness. but she realized that doesnt work either. Using it the normal way did not work on Lynn because it didnt fit right no matter what. i did put it on backwards and fasten the chest loop to her collar with the leash, and i can see this working wonderfully!
this harness did fit my other sheltie, Ruckus just fine. I guess my Lynn is shaped funny!
If this works on a Husky it ought to work great on my big-chested stubborn puller. The dog is an angel in all aspects except on the leash. I've tried the gentle leader but that didn't work too well. This seems to be the right move for Mack.
how do you mean turn it upside down ... like flip it inside out so the buckles and everything go the right way .... or make the chest piece the piece that goes over the withers (sorry horse term) i guess it would be their shoulders
interesting. Using it the right way never worked for my dog either, upside down hmmm..... I took it back awhile ago but still have her regular harness, I wonder if that would work for pulling using it upside down as well? except the loop would be under her chest? I know she doesn't like it when her leash gets caught between her legs running underneath her belly a bit, I wonder.... she is getting better but you know with those distractions
I have a good review on this new dog poop scooper I stumbled upon. I absolutely love it because I don’t have to actually touch any of my dog’s poop. I tried other methods of cleaning up after my dog. Like those expensive rakes and pail sets for my yard and just a Walmart bag for walks. I own 2...
Have you guys heard of this training treat? Chew Time
It's not even sold on Amazon but it's sold in Asia and people have nice reviews about it. However, when I bought it from a local pet store and brought it home, my pupper can't even eat it! It's hard as stone! I can break it into two but I'd...
Does anyone have any ideas about indestructible "soft" toys for dogs? These would be toys like stuffed animals.
Orchid's gone through about a million "babies" since she was a baby herself. Every time I buy from a good brand that I'm assured by a sales person won't rip up, with in three days...
Just wondering if anyone here has used D.A.P. collars or plugin diffusers for the home and if they saw any positive results with it. My dog is fearful of people and the trainer suggested it to help in the behavior modification process. Thanks!
