Traditional harnesses can actually encourage dogs to pull harder because of the opposition reflex That's the reflex that makes sled dogs do what they do. The Easy Walk Harness' unique front-chest leash attachment stops pulling by tightening slightly across your dog's chest and shoulder blades. The gentle pressure steers your dog to the side and redirecting his attention back towards you. The Easy Walk Harness never causes coughing, gagging, or choking because the chest strap rests low across the breastbone, not on the delicate tracheal area.Add this item to your cart:
A quick snap buckle on both the shoulder and belly straps make it easier to get the harness on and off.
Soft, but strong nylon and four adjustment points provide maximum comfort and a reliable fit. The belly strap is an attractive complementary color - making it easy to identify which strap goes over the shoulders and which goes under the belly.
Fitting The Harness:
Open the quick-snap buckle on the belly strap. Place the shoulder strap over the dog&rsquos head with the chest strap resting on the dog&rsquos chest. Tighten belly strap to a comfortably snug fit. On medium-sized dogs, only allow room for about a finger&rsquos width under the strap. Allow a bit more for larger dogs, less for smaller dogs. Gently press fingers on the lower part of the front of the dog&rsquos chest to locate the breastbone. Adjust the shoulder strap so that when the chest strap is horizontal parallel to the ground, the chest strap rests directly over the breast bone. AFTER you have tightened both the shoulder and belly straps, adjust the chest strap to fit securely. It should rest nearly parallel to the ground, not &ldquohang down&rdquo or gap. You may need to remove the harness to make these adjustments. When the shoulder strap is fitted correctly, the chest strap should resemble a horizontal line parallel to the ground, and it will rest directly over the breastbone. Attach the leash to the D-ring on the chest strap.
