    I applaud you for sticking with the challenge of walking him. I have seen many an owner give up and put the dog in the backyard because it was easier than working on a solution.

    Hi, everyone. I am a new member, and was just reading this thread. One of our bulldogs, Nitro, has figured out how to escape (every now and then, usually when my husband is not paying attention, LOL) from the walking collar/leash that we use. So, I've been thinking about moving both of our guys over to harnesses, but we've never used harnesses before. Thus, am looking for advice on best ones to buy, proper fitting and use? I think basic harnesses will be fine for us (as opposed to the "pinching" ones discussed above. . . . our guys pull, but we employ the stop/heel methods - which work most of the time, LOL). Thanks in advance for any advice on the harnesses, particularly with respect to proper fitting.

    I realized with the harness, our dog would pull harder, with his collar he still wants to pull but he is starting to pull less!, and with time and patience it should stop. It's in their nature to pull.
    But if he his pulling excessively, that's not good for their throats could damage it. Be careful, and keep trying.

    Harnesses are a safe way to go. You have better control and there is no chance of it slipping off like there is with a collar. Harnesses are very adjustable, each strap should have a way to be adjusted for length.

    Here is the link for the Puppia harness suggested by Dessertskybulldogs it has a measuring chart and pictures that show the harness on different kinds of dogs.

    Instead of the gentle leader, try the no pull harness. They are great and will not hurt your dog.
