She does all this in about a second, so we can't prevent it from happening. We -are- going to be working on stopping it, but we can't train her not to do it if we can't even take her outside. She is a very deep chested dog, and all the harnesses we have seen are not long enough to reach back past her chest to go around her belly. Has anyone seen any good, large, harnesses that are long or have some sort of band that goes around behind the back legs to prevent a backing out of the harness?
Have you tried a gentle leader ?
