    Ultimately, that's what I ended up doing - although kind of by accident. I was digging through some old boxes and I came upon a bunch of Mable's stuff. I used a prong collar for her pulling back in the day, and it worked great as a training tool. She didn't wear it very long at all and the pulling was "cured". Yes: a proper fit and knowing HOW TO USE ONE is incredibly important and, I would say, why it worked so well. I forgot I had that thing! (I found a lot of other stuff too - *sniff*) I've just started using it with Bo.

    I am going to check out that "Buddy Harness" thing though. I'm interested to see how it works - and if it will work on Bo. I need to find a store that has one so I can test it! He is SO SINGLE MINDED when he sees something he wants to get to....it's hard to imagine a harness working at all for that. And you better believe I have biceps like a body builder from hanging onto that boy. No kidding. People comment on them. hahahaha! Bo made me badass! hahahahaha

    I was looking at a dean & Tyler one on amazon.com that had a handle on the top of the harness for days when rocky feels like being a crazy man...!

    I just got his easy walk harness! We took Buster for a walk today and it was spectacular. He literally did no pulling. Everytime he tried to pull us he would turn himself around and stop. With some minor adjustments when he strayed, he had a pretty great walk. I'd say the only trouble we had was him being stubborn and lagging behind I think comparing his 2 most recent walks, the one with the new harness was literally 10 times better.

    hi @AMart79, that's great you're liking the new harness. I was waiting for your review

    Thanks for sharing your experience with it...i'm considering getting one for T and F. They mostly pull when they see other dogs approaching and i have a hard time holding on to their leashes when both are trying to pull away from me. I get a lot of "rope burns" on my hands

    Yea buster does a lot of the same. i think the best part is, even if he pulls when he sees a dog, he'll stop when he gets to the end of the leash rather than pull you further. I'd recommend it

    This is not a shirt. Lari ordered this harness for HRH primarily to make a pattern from it. After pricing out the components I doubt if we are going to make any for sale. lol The Harness is built right in and has velcro and buckles across the belly and chest. It his quite adjustable and fits quite well.

    Do you train with markers? Is Buster food motivated? I would recommend that you lure Buster while walking with a treat that he enjoys. When he is doing what you want use your marker. Make the treat exciting and put energy into the game of taking a walk. Also don't stop to give him the reward. You want him to associate it with walking with you. Once he is responding to the treats and markers start adding your command. When you know that he understands the command and what you expect of him use a correction when he is being stubborn and not responding to your command.

    I'm glad that Bo is working well with his prong collar. It's such a versatile and amazing tool in the right hands. It sounds like Bo understands that you're the pack leader and he just needs to understand what it is that you want and that's where corrections help him learn.

    @AMart79, i rec'vd the easy walk harness last night so i'm going to try it out on Finn on this evening's walk. I am so mechanically NOT inclined w/these harnesses...i give myself such a big HA trying to figure out how to put these on. Drives me crazy. Anyways, hopefully the walk will be a good one. If so, then i'll get a 2nd one for Tate.

    It takes getting used to, i'll tell you that! at least for me. BUT, on today's walk i was thinking that i'm finally getting the gist of it with Finn walking right by my side, which is the whole idea. I think i've been having a little more trouble 'cuz i walk both boys at the same time and only Finn has this particular harness right now, so it's just been tricky maneuvering both of them and assessing the easy walk harness. I may or may not get one for Tate...he's not that much of a puller, only when he sees other dogs and wants to play with them.

    Give the harness some time, practice with it and i'm pretty sure you'll notice a difference. Let me know!
