Thanks, Fran! Do you know if this harness prevents them from backing out of the harness and getting loose? My B-mix Jack seems to have a penchant for pulling backward and OUT of his harness lately. I am looking for something that will prevent him from getting out of his harness on our walks. He is very timid and when he gets freaked on a walk, he seems to be able to back out of his harness - I have tried 2 kinds and he has escaped from both. Luckily, as he has matured, he now longer feels compelled to run one fre, but it is disconcerting none-the-less!
Well, Kipawa can be a squiggler, especially with this new leash, as he feels that his power has been taken away from him. Sorry Kipawa - that is the reason why you're wearing the leash!
As long as you take the time to fit it properly, I would think even trying to get out of it by backing up would be difficult. Today I am going to fit the harness so that the loop/martingale area will be at the front of his neck, and then will attach the leash to it there.Now, it seems to me that you have to have your dog walk slightly behind you to have this work, otherwise the martingale area is going to be pulled to one side when your dog pulls. Then the placement of the harness is going to be lopsided and more apt to chafe some areas of the body? Hmmmmm….
