    I dont think front attach harnesses work.

    I tried one with Barney and initially it was great, but eventually he worked out how to pull in it. Now I use a halti when I can be bothered putting it on, or I use his check chain. Or if I just want to go for a quick walk and I dont feel like worrying about pulling, I just use his flat collar LOL.

    I use a sling harness for my wee dog, but it does just mean they can put more effort in pulling coz it doesnt hurt their neck lol

    I can't stand walking a pulling dog either, but I believe the original post was about the dog pulling because of a dog behind a gate. My dog is great on the lead when we're walking, except when we get too close to another dog and she wants to play. But I should get one of those bungee leads for that just to absorb that initial shock when she suddenly lunges forward. I think she just forgets the lead when she's in play mode.

    Yes that's right she dosnt pull at all it's always been a loose lead when walking and she always stays by my side and even now at 3 months she goes into auto mode when we come to crossing roads and sits and waits before I ask her to this is something I taught tips very young too but I don't think she even got it that early on... She is Always so well behaved this was a first for her. I'm taking her back to more puppy training next week and see how we go from there

    I'm not going to risk undoing all my work I've done on her by using the wrong harness or whatever on her if she dosnt need it... I'll have to put more training into her and I'm thinking this is more of a social interaction thing she needs now...(thinking out loud now lol)

    I've just seen those bungee leads, I think they would be great for Bella cause she gets a burst of energy and tries to run all the time! lol

    I honestly tried to train it out... didn't work as I wasn't persistent enough. We are going to do training sometime this year which will involve loose leash walking so we will both learn there how to do it.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    We use a back attach harness for both our Staffies. We had them sent over from the UK and I can for the life of me NOT remember what they are called. They do NOT sit in their "armpits"...they have the strongest point on the chest. They are made of soft fabric with fleece on them....I will try and take a photo! We do not use collars either due to not wanting to compress their trachea.

    Really? Are you joking with this comment? Dont you think people DO train their dog in loose lead walking?

    I dont think anyone WANTS a pulling dog. Barney is coming up 7, and for the first 12 months off his life it was trained out of him. He was beautiful to walk. Then one day *bam* at the end of the lead and thats where he stays. Ive tried retraining him to loose lead walk again in various ways to absolutely no effect. He will heel when you tell him, and he will immediately come back to your side when you stop walking, he just wont stay there.

    Some days he is pretty good even on his flat collar and he doesnt pull much at all but it seems we are stuck with it when he feels like doing it. He is easier to walk off lead...much nicer.

    He is our first puller, all our previous dogs were lovely on a loose lead.

    I was not joking it was just everyone was saying that they were all having pulling problems like I said I was not trying to get anyone off side
    I don't think anyone WANTS a pulling dog
    I am sure know one wants a pulling dog but like i said I was not sure if you had done no pulling work see I don't have a dog yet So I find it interesting that your dogs change so sudden
