    Default Bully Pulling Solution!

    I just thought I'd share this genius little invention so those of you with "let's say hi to everyone!" bullies can walk safely.

    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)!

    Sounds great I will have to get one because Ftse is a shocker to walk I almost run all the way, people must be watching out of their windows and laughing at him pulling me.
    I have even tried shortning the lead around my hand but that just sheer agony felt like he was going to pull my hand of.

    I have used this harness from the beginning based on the recommendation of a trainer and it has been wonderful. Loose leash walking is a breeze and we can concentrate on bonding on our walks together rather than worrying about pulling and control. A harness with a clip in the back I learned is intended for pulling so it is natural that dogs would pull if they get energetic for any reason. The clip in front means the dog just turns into you if they try to pull ahead or away. It is very gentle. But these are hard to find- one that fits a Bulldog is not common to stores. I finally purchased the harness in a size large and then had to modify it by shortening the girth and keeping the chest at maximum for the big Bully chest. Not easy with the thick material. If anyone knows of a harness with the fron clip that is made to fit a Bully I am all ears!

    EXCELLENT news..... I forgot all about this - we had to use it for Banks when she was about 8/9 months.

    Hi,
    we used the easy walk to but same problems the fit. Then we found this one at Petsmart which does the same thing but is under the Petsmart brand.
    it fits bongo better and looks cooler and its padded he's 53lbs and I got him a large.

    I totally forgot about these. I bought them for Wilbur and Layla when they were little but they were too big and I put them away. Wilbur had been pulling like a maniac lately, so I dug them out. Thing is I ca't find the black one I bought for Wilbur so he had to wear the bright pink one that was for Layla hahaha!
    it worked really well....I am going to continue using it ( maybe I will pick up another one so Wilbur isn't so embarrassed of the colour!)
    i got them at Petsmart, they're pricey but I agree they are awesome. Large fits my guys.
