    Well Terry Berry (Yes...I have lots of nicknames for fatso) was always a friendly, extremely loving dog he just needs to be tamed a bit more. I'm crossing my fingers that now I've been able to extend his attention span to that more of three minutes I may finally be able to toilet train him.

    Im actually thinking of getting this kind of walking device for my girl Chloe..

    I thought the head halti i had was ok (which she chewed through in the time it took for me to use the little girls room) but i learnt a lot from that post also.. it also 'masked; the problem didn't solve it though..

    This week has been nightmare'ish for me as she's been pulling on her normal collar and doing a lot of what you described Tazzie does... its not enjoyable for them or us so heck! if this 'body' harness works then it stick with it!

    dog walking harness

    a gf of mine has a headstrong staffy c greyhound and it keeps her under control and walking enjoyable..

    Those would probably solve the dog trying to strangle itself problems, but not stop the pulling you under a bus problem.

    This one has for me - stopped my dog from pulling, or reduced it to something controlable with 1 finger.

    Look for harness with the attachment point at the front. There are others. But most of the ones that attach at the back work a bit like a sled harness. The dog can still pull.

    umm i'd say medium Occy.. shes bigger than a kelpie, but smaller then a GSD...

    22 - 25 kgs, suppose to get her to 28 kgs asap (underweight when we got her from SAFE)

    Is that easy enough to understand? I have no idea how to load pics sorry (and i dont want to hijack DGP thread :P )

    I was just thinking some of Cappys old equipment might fit her - let me look and get back to you. He was a big dog but I had some adjustable harnesses

    I have a sense-ible harness that may fit.
