SENSE-ible Dog Harness
 
[COLOR="Purple"](Yay my first product review) [/COLOR]

Product: [url]http://www.softouchconcepts.com/products/sense_ible_harness.html[/url]

To make a long story short, When we first got Maggie she had a HUGE pulling problem. She would also lunge at other dogs, even if they were on the other side of the road. I was actually scared that she would someday manage to pull us in front of a car. I watched a lot of the petfinder training videos to get her to stop pulling, but with a 100lb dog "Be a Tree" is more like "Be a Twig" :laughing: .I tried a Gentle leader head halti thinger ,It stopped the pulling but Maggie hated it and took about 15-20 mins to get her to let me put it on her. We were getting to a point that I don't think she was even enjoying the walks anymore :sad:

FINALLY I tried SENSE-ible Dog Harness, Clerk at my local pet store swore by it. She is also a dog walker so I decided to give it a shot. It was a little expensive, about $40 after tax. The change was instant though, Maggie could still sniff easily and look around but she stopped pulling me. She actually gets excited every time I take it out because she knew it meant going for a walk. As for lunging at other dogs it did not cure it but it subsided enough that I could actually ask people if she could go and greet there dog (98% of the time it's a yes :D ) when before she just looked way too frightening to consider it.

Soon, Maggie will not even need it anymore :lovestruck: Check the website on full details of how it works (site explains it best I think). I guess it depends on the owner and the dog, but I give this product :thumbs up :thumbs up

[COLOR="Purple"]Note : I don't have any good pictures of Mags wearing her harness because she is kinda wiggly when I take pictures, but if I find one I will edit my post to include it :rolleyes: .[/COLOR]

I had one of these for Riley initially until he got to be about a year old. Then he just got to strong for it and we moved into something different. I thought it was an excellent product :thumbs up.

I recently got the Gentle Leader Easywalk Harness for Chase - the design looks absolutely identical to the SENSE-ible to me. So far I am also having incredible results! :D He's pulling a little, but my hand no longer feels sore after walks....not even tired actually! And he seems much more at ease and comfortable than when I was using a Halti.

So although mine is a different brand, I give :thumbs up :thumbs up :thumbs up for front-clasping harnesses of this general design!

Yea I Googled the GL one and they are fairly identical. I'm glad there is another option, because I did find the SENSE-ible one expensive. Good sturdy Harnesses imo :rolleyes:

We use the Gentle Leader Harness on both Han & Leia. I highly recommend it! Han was such a puller when we first got him. He still will pull occassionally but not as much. And I can control it more
