    Until now, we'd only used a collar to walk, and it was never an issue. Tilly wouldn't pull me, she'd stop when she felt the resistance. If she did start to pull, I would bribe her back to me with treats, and it worked every time.

    So, I used to be very training-only orientated, but Tilly has hit that age (we're at 9 months) where I tell her to stop pulling and she looks at me like "HAH." Other dogs just trigger her - it's the only time she pulls. And then we proceed to run face-first into any dog she sees. And because I was terrified of pulling on her neck, I just ran with her. Ugh.

    Tilly's trainer suggested an Easy Walk harness - it has saved our lives (literally!).

    A regular harness just seemed to make it easier for her to drag me, but with this new one, it attaches to the leash in the chest instead of back, so if Tilly pulls, she just ends up turning herself back to me (GENIUS!).

    We've been using it for two days, and she already has stopped pulling almost completely. I barely tug the leash, and she comes right back to me (as she knows she won't win). Now I wish I got this thing a month ago!

    We went on the first completely loose-leash walk we've had in a while (even passing other dogs)!
    A trainer recommended an Easy-Walk Harness when we had our female 140-pound bullmastiff who loved to pull when she saw other dogs. It was a God-send for us! I loved the way it turned her around when she pulled so she couldn't go in the direction she wanted. I haven't needed one for Mabel, but I'd never hesitate to use one again. So glad it worked for you!

    Yeah I am sooo excited about it! I got ours from Petsmart also. Tilly fits in the large, but she's still a baby. The trainer there told me that if I can survive until she hits the 1 year mark (June), the sassy attitude will calm down! haha

    @Ftse 100, did you check Amazon for the Easy Walk? I know they carry them there.

    Been using one on Finn for awhile now and I agree, it's good stuff!

    I rang the local petshop and they have a couple of different ones in stock so I am going to duck into town shortly and hopefully get one if they have a size to fit Ftse. Thanks Henny

    The Easy Walks are great! You can also buy them at Amazon.com for about half what you'd pay at PetsMart. I've also been using the Walk In Sync harness, which I feel is a much better fit for bullies, more secure, too.
