    a harness, and he only wears it outside..no collar inside.. Chester tends to be overly dramatic when we put the collar on him.. he acts like Jesse James being hung and sent to the gallows!
    It's a Bully thing <3

    When the bully was created, it licked the hand of God and God stroked its head, saying, "What do you want, baby bully?" It replied, "My Lord, I want to stay with you, in heaven, on a mat in front of the gate."

    Mr.Beefy had a harness when we got him but he is such a mellow walker i find a loose fitting collar more appropriate for him. He is also VERY WIDE so its hard to adjust a harness to fit his girth.

    Both Gertie and Ida have collars. They both walk on their leash without any problem, so they just always have the collars on. I need them to grab onto because Ida, especially, is stubborn. If I'm asking them to go outside and one doesn't want to mind, the collar is a good way to help get them out the door.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    All of my bullies use a harness. They have their fancy collars to wear, but I will not attach a leash to them. I had a friend who's bully had to have surgery to repair a damaged trachea due to pulling on his collar.

    We use both on Vegas and Orion. If we are on a walk, Orion is in a harness. She is a puller! We also put her in a harness around the house....cause she likes to jump on Vegas and when I have to pull her off Vegas...! Vegas doesn't pull on walks. He saunters. But when he puts on the brakes..his collar will and has come off him. So, I've got into the habit of putting them in harnesses. Vegas and Orion's seat belts are harness style, so if we are going into a pet store and Vegas has a collar on, I will use his seatbelt to secure him.

    All my dogs have colars.. They all walk great with them. I thought about harnesses for the two bullies but have not got them as we dont venture too far from home with them..

    I bet your dog really pulls on the harness then. it is our job to teach them that they must not pull, try the easy walk harness @ premirepetsupliesINC. it attaches at the front of the chest. and as for the fancy collars--
    PLEASE EVERYONE--don't use the clip type. in an emergency,(and there will be one-- one day) they will pop that clasp as if it were not there. a 1 inch roll slip collar will not allow them to escape, and is large enough to not cut into the throat. if your dog pulls on the leash,STOP and turn the other direction, and do it until they get the drift. it doesn't take long. its like making a horse walk backwards if they are in a big hurry to get home.
    If you have a question regarding dog food, or behavior! call or e-mail me anytime.

    We are the same ... Maggie has a collar that she wears all the time, but when we first started to walk her she would pull and end up almost choking herself to death. So we got the harness and it works perfectly!!

    Haven't got a harness for Daddy yet as we don't know how big he's going to be, and the couple of walks he's been on the collar has been fine because he's far too interested in biting the leash than pulling on it!

    I use a harness mainly just in case Stig pulls. As with some people, we're scared that he may escape or get hurt whenever we use a collar.

    Most of the time we walk with a harness, I just prefer them.

    Rocky doesn't wear collar at all when we're inside the house. I used to put him on harness but when he decided to be stubborn (once in a blue moon), he just put all his weight on his paws & I can't really pull him to walk. That's why we use collar. Loose enough for him to breathe & escape out of it if he wants too lol (which he never tried).
