Longblades, could it be the Lupi harness? http://www.google.ca/search?q=lupi+h...w=1366&bih=574

We tried it with Lucky not long after he arrived (I think we tried everything ) and, although it sorta worked the first few times, it still didn't stop him from going nuts when he saw something he wanted to chase after. That had more to do with me relying on the harness to teach him rather than myself though.

Buddy49, another reason I personally don't like the retractable leashes is because a dog can quickly dart out into unsafe places ie. the road, at another dog, towards cyclists, etc. The leashes can also quickly entangle with another dog or it's leash. We've used them when walking through fields and on the beach while camping and I don't mind them so much in places like that but, the locking mechanism broke easily.
