Hi

I am contemplating experimenting with a harness, Ozz has a head collar but i worry sometimes that if he charges of with his flexi lead, at the moment when he is at teh end of teh flex then it yanks him and maybe hurting his mouth? i have tried 2 different harnesses in the past, both said no pull but believe me Ozz is a very very strong boy and neither has worked he really pulls like a train, i have tried using just his collar on occasions but my poor shoulder and forearm are becoming like Popeyes!!!. A trainer once told me that you need somethinga round his head to have control, also he hates otehr dogs so if he does pull i really do need to be in control of him should they come too close!!!! Does anyone have some suggestions please that really work and that i have control without him looking like a heavy metal rock band member ????

What have you actually done to stop him pulling?

Darcy can be a puller when first on her walk, we use both harness and collar, but we are tackling the pulling by changing direction if she pulls, it's taking time and patience but hopefully it will pay off, I think you'll need to combat the pulling first Smile

we have tried stopping and sitting down and waiting, turning in the opposite direction which works for a few minutes then when we turn round, its like he knows where he is going ( although he doesnt) and pulls as strong, we have tried that time and time again on the same walk to no avail, its loike he is on a mission to get there, wherever 'there' is?

you should never ever put a long lead or flexi lead on a head collar they should only ever be used with a short normal lead

Thanks for the advice, so do you think I should have his head collar on with a short lead or the flexi lead on a short setting then when we get to the park or woods change to a harness or normal collar so he can charge about? the only think is if we see another dog and he charges after it, i dont have as much control to pull him back should he start to attack which has nearly happened?

If you are wanting him to have a run i would personally walk him on a short lead on his head collar but have a harness on him and when you get to the woods put his flexi/long line on the harness.

It's not the best idea to put a long line on a normal collar either as they can really damage their neck

I know it might seem like you can't hold him if he charges and not on a headcollar, BUT i unfortunately know a dog who broke her neck by running after another dog whilst on a headcollar and long line, it's not worth the risk

i use a non pull harness for shadow 1 of the Ancol and a collar ( just to be safe because i have had harness brake before ) 1s it helped me to get him to stop pulling the harness alone did not do any thing but with the harness and stopping when he pulls it works fine Smile and i give him treats on walks when he don't pull now he only pulls when leaving the house but wen we get out he fine

P.S his harnes lifts his front part of his body of the floor if he pulls to hard dont know if it is supose to tho. I will try puting a pic up to show how i use the collar n harness in picture place Smile
