My Dog Still Pulls

You got the harness, and hoped that it would solve your dog pulling problem. Yet your dog still pulls.

We know that you want the great results Walk Your Dog With Love has provided for dogs and their people worldwide. Especially if the alternative is a collar or choker - those are not compassionate, friendly, safe . . . or necessary ways to walk our best friends. You can see why here So we hope that you and your dog are open to giving it a good old college try.

What results to expect:
We need to create a distinction about how the harness works.
- Some dogs respond very well to not being pulled on - for those the harness is a miracle.
- For other dogs, they will still be attracted to squirrels, leaves, shadows, the neighbor's dog, who knows what . . . For these dogs the fact that we have more control is the blessing. Not that our dogs are less enthusiastic or less passionate, just that we have more control.

Click here to see Teddy, the dog who the harness was originally invented for, in two videos, filmed years apart. He is still a Golden Wacko-Loco, you can see him trying to get ahead, yet we have more control. The fact that he is still a wild-man is what we love most about him!

Yes, your dog will still look at cats and it will still try to chase squirrels . . . yet you will have a much better handle on it.

Remembering what it is about.
To emphasize how the harness works, try this experiment:

  • First, review the info video here. It demonstrates the 'steering'.
  • Next, attach your leash snapbolt to the webbing on the back of the harness - between the shoulders. Right, you are going to turn the harness into a rear-attached harness. Like a Dog sled is set up, or a Seeing Eye For The Blind Dog, or a drug sniffing hound dog . . .
  • Now, take a walk. Has the pulling increased? Certainly notice how there is no possibility of 'steering'.

Are there other important benefits
Many customers also appreciate a) how easy it is to put on, b) that it has the 3M Scotchlite reflective material and, of course, c) that they are not around their dog's neck, so there is no chance to choke their best friend . . . it is the safe, compassionate, and friendly choice. A good thing even for a 'good' dog. And an even more necessary thing for a pulling dog.

JUST TO DOUBLE CHECK - DO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT SIZE HARNESS AND IS IT ADJUSTED/FIT CORRECTLY?
Sometimes the right adjustment can make all the difference. As can having a harness that is the right size.

Has it been fitted correctly?
Please take a moment to make sure the harness is a) adjusted correctly and b) put on your doggie correctly. Please watch the video below. (This is not the sales/info video)

  • Please note the "scooching" for proper fit.
  • Please note the 'gap' we mention, that is perfectly normal too. Yes, the material, and your dog are flexible - it is not supposed to fit like spandex.
  • We believe snug, yet not tight. You should be able to get 2-4 fingers underneath the harness by the reflective material - as seen in the video.
You also might need to adjust the harness a few times to get it "just right".
  • Once you find where you like it, customize it further by "setting" it as described in the video. Now you have a dog harness tailored just for your dog!

 

 



Is the harness the right size?

Getting the right size is easy. It can usually be done just by knowing  your dog's approximate weight.

YET, to totally make sure you get the right size, see the Girth measurement chart below. Girth is the measurement that goes over your dog's shoulders, right behind the front legs, and back up again. Like the red arrow shows. 

Please measure with your dog standing. Measure it as if it was the harness - not too tight, not too loose.

If your dog can fit in two size harnesses, we usually prefer the bigger dog in the smaller harness. If the measurement is at the very top of one size, then go up to the next size. If you still have sizing questions please email us your dog’s WAG (Weight, Age, Girth as described above and in the picture) and we will help you.

If you have a puppy, we have a Puppy Promise, where the next size up is just half price. Yes, even if you have a Great Dane.
