Meet Teddy. He is the ‘Exuberant’ dog that helped to invent the harness. Does he remind you of anyone you know? Even if your dog is the best walker, no one wants to be waked by their neck and throat. These videos are from when Teddy was much younger to very recent. He is now over 15, and still In Love With Life.
The first video shows Teddy dog at 13 years old . . . and acting like a 13 months old! The second video was taken in 2006, when he was 4, it was taken just after I invented the harness. Yes “Exuberant”.
When Teddy he came into my life as a 1 year old he made walking distinctly hellish. HELLISH! I was desperate to find a way to walk him. A kind way. I would not walk him with a collar or choker. I wanted to do it in a force free and friendly way, a positive reinforcement way. And Viola, several years later, the Walk Your Dog With Love front-leading dog harness.
Yes, Teddy is still a Golden Wacko-Loco, yet walking him with the Walk Your Dog With Love dog harness that he invented is much more fun for the both of us. His less crazy pack mates are happy too, because they never wanted to be walked from their necks either.
Click the video below to see Teddy in 2006. It is the same scenario – us preparing to go for a walk. It is a video I made just after I built the prototype Walk Your Dog With Love dog harness. Teddy is 9 years younger . . and just as “Enthusiastic” .
I LOVE YOU TEDDY!
