Want to keep your dog from pulling on a walk? Try this.
Walking your dog doesn't have to be a chore. It should be a pleasurable experience. But it ends up being more work than it's worth because the dog pulls constantly. If that's a familiar story, you need to try out this harness. It'll make walking your dog actually fun and beneficial again.
I have a beagle who fits this exact description. We finally came across a product that now makes walks almost enjoyable. It cut down on the pulling from the first time we used it. It's the Yuppie Puppy Anti-Pull harness from Orrco, Incorporated, and it's the best device for a number of reasons.
First and foremost, this is the only harness we've used, or found for that matter, that comes with an endorsement from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Many harnesses either choke the dog or else the straps cut into the skin. This one does neither, and that's why the ASPCA endorses it.
Next, it's super easy to get it on and off the dog. Have you ever seen a harness that was so complicated, you needed an engineering degree to figure it out? Me too.
Next, there's a guarantee that it won't choke the dog, even if it pulls hard. The only knock against it would be a small buckle that rubs against the chest. It may cause a little irritation, but it's not that bad. It doesn't cut the skin or anything like that.
Next, the harness gives your dog extra comfort with the padded sherpa sleeves that fit snugly under the legs. Most other harnesses are not padded, and the straps can cut the skin, depending upon where they fit and how severe a"puller" your dog is.
Finally, if this is a big deal to you, it comes in more than one color. If you don't like black, pick the red one or vice versa. Not a huge deal, but you have the option.
I'm sure your dog is like our beagle. She loves to take a walk. Is she a perfect walker? Let's say it's a work in progress, but the harness has helped from the get-go. I strongly recommend trying it.
