    If it's working for you, then go for it.

    Gentle Leader nose band - doesn't close the dog's mouth - just for your information. Would be nice if it did when the dynamic lifter is on the ovals.

    Congrats on solving the pulling problem! My mom has to use a harness with Keeda when she takes her for walks, but it doesn't help her much. Can't remember what it's called, but it works in the sense that when she pulls it's meant to pull up under her armpits and lift her front off the ground a touch so she is forced back and can't pull anymore. In either case, it isn't working. Keeda actually knows how to walk properly, she walks in a perfect heel with a buckle collar for me - my mom just doesn't establish her position and gives in to everything Keeda does, so she gets taken advantage of and pulled all over the place.

    Hi Liza

    I can vouch for the fact that a dog with front legs completely airborne can still pull like a freight train. Front attach harness - turns the dog around without lifting legs off the ground. Hard to for her to pull against a rotational force. Back attach harness - less choking for the dog but does not reduce the pulling.

    Thanks, Hyacinth. To be honest I'm really hesitant to buy another no-pull harness for my mom because in my case the dog knows how to heel and walk properly perfectly fine - it's my mom who should be working on her walking skills. If it was just the walking it'd be one thing, but Keeda conveniently "forgets" all commands and manners with my mom while acting like an angel with me. When I have the leash, Keeda doesn't even think of pulling. But as soon as my mom takes the leash, she becomes, as you say, a freight train. I've been trying to convince my mom to let me take her out a few times to show her how to walk Keeda with a regular buckle collar.

    I think you're right Liza
    Your mum needs to take charge of Keeda and learn how to dominate the walk.

    I agree.

    But I think in the meantime for Mum's safety, you might consider something that reduces the power. Either that or ban Mum from walking the dog when you're not there to coach. People do get seriously hurt when dogs pull. Into traffic, in front of trains, down stairs, through gates/doors, across joggers...

    Frosty knows how to do a lovely heel with a slip collar and with a flat collar but on the footpaths - she forgets all about it. And when it comes to road crossings, she still goes bonkers if there is any traffic coming - she's scared of it - as best I can tell, and either hugs the ground or tries to bolt - any direction including directly in front of the car/bus. Without the harness - this is quite dangerous for both of us.
