    DO you have issues with Buster walking? If so I would recommend and easy walk harness, but this is not something that is forr all day everyday use. It does work miracles and is completely safe and comfy though
    If tears could build a staircase and happy memories a lane, I could walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again!

    I love these Amazon.com: Puppia Soft Dog Harness (Mesh) Black Large: Kitchen & Dining

    They hold up well, are soft and mesh, and fit well. Moe wears XL, but he is a big boy.

    ooo great suggestions guys. I'll check these both out. Buster just pulls a little to were he'll somewhat choke himself so i think a good harness is probably what he's gonna need but just for walks. He usually wears just his collar or goes commando inside haha

    I really really love this one for Orion. It's a step in harness...which is the only type I've ever used. It also has a "L" and a "R" on the inside buckle so you know which way to put it on. I am always trying to put the others on backwards. I found O a black one on clearance and I really want more. These are just a great harness at a decent price.

    I think that the AKC harness in an 8 shape is great. One foot threw one loop and the other foot threw the other side and has a plastic buckle (kinda like a bra lol now that I think about it) and then there are the hinges for the leash. I like this harness because it doesn't come near the neck and i like this because it's one less thing I have to worry about if they gain or lose weight it's adjustable and it's pretty.

    We are working on Bo's pulling (10 months old) and for us, a harness made the problem worse. As a puppy, Bo made himself almost PASS OUT from pulling on the leash! It scared me to death. Multiple times. It amazed me that the need for air wouldn't over ride the desire to get to the doggie/cat/squirrel/whatever in front of him.

    When we were working on the pulling with Ruckus we used the Sporn no pull harness. This one went under each armpit and connected on his back. When he pulled it put pressure the front of his armpits, not the chest or neck area.

    Welcome to BUDDY BELT (A Division of Class Art Productions Inc.)

    I recently "splurged" and pick up a buddy belt for Lucy and I LOVE it. Lucy is 3 and full grown so if you are looking for a pup I would save your money and wait until the pup is grown to invest.

    Check out the site. Well made, all leather, beautiful. I am getting another one soon in a different color.

    I also use it in the car to secure Lucy to the car seat strap.

    When Lucy was a pup I always had good luck with the SPORN "no pull harness" (a much less expensive alternative!)

    Good Luck!
