In the past I have had the mekuti harness for Densil - with the double ended lead. However, the ring at the front started chafing his chest leaving it quite red, so had to ditch that one. I recently ordered the perfect flt fleecy harness which he has been wearing about 3 weeks now and was quite impressed with it as it seemed quite comfy. He has been wearing it in conjunction with his canny collar for walks, as I put him on a training lead attached to the back of the harness when we get to the park area. A few days ago I noticed he was getting a red patch on his chest and couldn't figure out what was causing it. Had a look at the harness today and where the D ring is attached to the front of the harness. there is a hard piece of webbing behind it which would be next to his skin - so obviously this is the culprit. Another one to add to the collection in the cupboard! I have only had Densil for a year but have tried all the harnesses, collars and leads going - not much left to try now!

I have got an ezydog but found he pulled like anything with it and also it didn't fit very well - it slipped about a bit. A very nice man from dog games rang me today and they are going to send me a replacement front bit for the perfect fit harness. I had ordered it with the D ring at the front as I find using a double ended lead gives me more control. He is also going to enclose a piece of felt so that if it still chafes I can perhaps sew this on - although my sewing skills are not perfect.

Anyway, as I have more or less given up with the canny collar and had to give the perfect fit harness a rest I used the head halti today and we had a really nice walk, he hardly pulled at all so think I am going back to using that along with the harness for his training lead free roaming part of his walk.

I still don't get all the problems you had with the canny collar , it's working brilliant for us , I am just getting into the habit now of letting Tommy off and not refitting it until he walks a bit harder so hope he eventually realises no pull no strap over nose and we are getting there slowly

I vouch for the elperro.co.uk fleece comfort harness, custom made to your dogs measurements.

Tank and Diesel are awesome to walk with it.

I use a dbl ended softex lead, 1 end attached to the collar and the other on the harness. If they pull, then all I need to do us tug gently the end if the lead attached to the Harness which will pull on their chest/shoulders - evenly distributing the weight, no digging in.

Take a look

I like the look of the elperro harness - does look very comfy. I have just ordered and received a julius k9 harness. This is very easy to get on and off and seems to fit nicely. The suprise thing was that I took him for a walk this morning with just the harness - no halti or anything else. He did pull a little bit when he saw something he wanted to get to but not too bad. The biggest suprise was that we saw 2 cats in driveways and he just glanced at them and carried on instead of wanting to go for them. We also saw 2 dogs on the other side of the road and he is normally very reactive to them, but in this case he just looked at them with no fuss. This was very suprising because one of them was a wire haired terrier who started yapping and pulling and he would normally react back, but he just stared at it. Not sure if this is anything to do with the harness or just a one-off but will see how it goes.

I'm also looking for a new harness, done quite a bit of reading on here and theres so much to choose from.

Zeus has currently got the non pull harness from pets at home, but he still pulls on it, even though it may be hurting him or making him feel uncomfortable. Its also starting to take the hair off under his armpits because hes pulling alot on it.

Like the look of the elperro harness, looks comfortable, also looked into the julius k9, but my question is, will these harnesses actually help against pulling, or are they just standard harnesses used for holding them?

I've looked into the halti head collar/canny collar, but I'm not too keen on putting something over the nose/face like that.

I'm getting fantastic results from the canny collar , though one of my daughter's friends did ask why I had to have a muzzle on Tommy the other day , he is so much calmer with it on I am definitely on their side

The elperro harness stops my girl from pulling, it has a D ring on the front,so effectively - if she pulls, she ends up pulling right round.

The best thing I've found is - my daughter can happily walk Tank with no pulling, if the lead tightens she gently tugs the end of the lead attached to the harness and he slows down n looks up... Perfection xxx was so chuffed today x

Actually ignore that post, just read the reviews and theres a woman whose got a staffy, this is her review:

By Tracy McD
I bought this product for my staffie who is a nightmare when out walking. We have tried just about every available product on the market that stops your dog from pulling and didn't find anything that really worked. We didn't have anything to lose and after a colleague recommended the Ancol Training Hareness, I ordered one straight away. It arrived quickly and I couldn't wait to try it out. I was delighted to find that it did stop my dog from pulling. However, when we arrived home after our walk, I was horrified to find that my dog was bleeding behind his front legs after being rubbed raw. Needless to say, I have never used this hareness again.


...Think I'll give it a miss!

Dosent look comfy that's for sure !

I guess the dog pulls - the strap tightens around it's chest and behind the front legs to restrict movement hence the dog should not want to pull, but ouch..... imagine that digging in.

I use a Julius K9 on my two. They have had them for over a year now and are starting to look a little worn but are still absoluately fantastic. I do like the look of the Elperro harness also. Might look into a couple of those when the K9's eventually fall apart???

I must say two beautiful models Smile

So I finally decided what kind of harness to get Zeus. Going along the lines of the elperro (with the front d clip), I found the Perfect Fit Dog Harness from Dog Games (http://dog-games-shop.co.uk/perfect-fit-fleece-dog-harness/20mm-harness)

It's fleece lined, just like the elperro, which will hopefully stop the sore armpits/chafing etc. It's also got the front D ring which I'm hoping will help with his pulling.

The only reason I'm going for this over the elperro is the price.

Anyone used this before? Any thoughts on this?

Hi, I've got the one with the D ring at the front. It is a lovely soft harness, but found out that there is a small hard piece of webbing behind the D ring which was chafing on Densil's chest. I now have a piece of felt which I need to sew on to stop the chafing. Otherwise quite a good harness.

Ooo the elperro does look good!

Mine have the xtra dog fleece walking harness and I find them really good, they have the ring at the front so are good for stopping pulling but they allow the dog free movement and no rubbing problems Smile

I haven't actually ordered a harness yet as I've been doing what Caryll (among others) have suggested that you should teach your dog not to pull, instead of buying a quick fix, and its actually working. Have been doing it for a week now and on the same harness he was pulling on, he walks fine with me 95% of the time!

I'm still going to get a fleece harness to stop the rubbing etc, it's out of the Dog games one or Xtra dog! The Elperro one looks the best, by far, but I'm going to wait until he's fully grown before I shed out £45 for that!
