One aspect of having a dog that I was very excited about was walkies! Unfortunately, Lucy pulls terribly on the leash making it impossible to walk nice. I tried a traditional harness on her but all it did was make pulling more comfortable.
I considered getting her a Halti but was doubtful that a head harness was going to go over real big. And then I read Pat Miller’s The Power of Positive Dog Training. She recommends a harness which has the leash attach at the chest rather than on the back.
The improvement is astonishing. We only did a little bit of walking with it so far but it seems that this is going to do the trick!
Lucy also got a new leash. It took her only a month to chew through her first regular nylon leash. The new one is a Lupine which comes with a life-time guarantee even if chewed!
Ready for walkies!
