    Default Solved Pulling on the Lead - Horray

    I have this silly as a wheel and wants to run at 50KPH kelpie thing and have been battling for a year to stop pulling at the lead. She is now OK with me but others in the familly (old and young) were still having trouble.

    Bought a SENSATION (tm) Harness - - the lead attaches mid chest rather then at the back. Worked instantly...she now walks at heel for every one. Am thinking that people with a conventional harness might still be able to attach the lead at the front.

    Yes I used a halti and she pulled and huffed and snorted all the way.

    I got the "sensible"tm harness for my puppy blue heeler x - made by the same people as the sensation. The gentle leader noseband thing works but she hates it. The same people who put out the gentle leader (premier pet) also put out a front attach harness called an "easy walk" with similar excellent results as the sensible/sensation harness - though I think the price I got my "sensible" harness was quite a lot better.

    I got my dog a harness after walking a weimerana wearing one - and I'd walked him without it too - and the difference is astounding. My puppy can still pull sleds in a slip chain collar - so the only thing that stops her pulling in that is a lot of training and a pocket full of a variety of treats and a lot of happy talking. And all that doesn't work when there are other dogs to greet and play with.

    I don't like using the slip chain away from class because you can't use it with collar that has the rego tags on it, and if she's off lead and sniffs the ground it can come off.

    I like the soft touch concepts harness so much I hand out little bits of paper with the websites on - to other people who have dogs that pull like cart horses.

    Thanks for this info

    I'm interested in buying one of these for Candy..walking her in a halti works, but she doesn't like it...check chains and flat collars are useless..lol.

    I went to the 1st website....but you have to be in america to purchase as there is no "australia" option
    Does anyone know where I can purchase this harness via online shopping?

    Hey Ozeymum
    I just had a look on ebay and there's a 'Stop-Pull Dog Harness' on there.
    The guy who sells them has them imported from England. $45 for a large one.

    Just found the website. http://www.kumfi.com

    Hyacinth, Thank you for your advice and web site details. I will have to invest in one imediately, as we have a constant battle at my place, as to which chain or harness is to be used whilst walking Paw-Sha.
    My partner refusses to walk her without the chain, where as I will not work her with the chain, and much prefer the harness.
    I believe the chain is good for obedience classes but not for an enjoyable walk. In saying that Paw-Sha does get very excited and tends to pull a lot more on the harness, but I want both Paw-Sha and I to enjoy our walks and don't want to make it a training excercise every time we go outside.
    I think the ("sense-ation" tm) this is an awsome Idea and we will all be happy little vegimites again! Cheers!

    I got mine in Adelaide from Bodil -this is her website.

    Home*- Adelaide Pet Dog Training

    Her phone numbers are on the contact us page. She is in direct contact with the Softouchconcepts people so she would be able to find a local distributor for you. Or you can email them directly. I'm fairly sure there is an Australian distributor in each capital city - and Bodil (the SA supplier) fits them for you. Fit is very important as with the nose band style collars.

    The Easy walk should be obtainable by any pet shop that supplies the "gentle leader" nose band.

    With stop-pull harness - make sure it is front attach. I've seen a few varieties that have a squeeze chain system at the back and it doesn't seem to be effective. Well it makes no difference to the red heeler at our dog club. You can pick her up by that harness and she still tries to pull.

    Hope that helps.

    I have a confirmed puller. I always thought it was a myth!!

    I recently bought an "Infini8" for her. It was recommended by a behaviouralist that I know. Works like magic. All of a sudden we've gone from over a year of having our arms pulled off to walking a feather light dog.... Amazing!!
