We tried the gentle leader on Nexa and had similar results. I think it lasted about 20 seconds:mad: We got the gentle harness next and it worked better, but she would usually just stand there and not walk. Both the gentle leader and harness worked for Leo, but he spent the majority of our walks trying to figure out how to get out. We had them in obedience class and worked on nice leash walking the most. Amazingly now we can finally walk both of them at the same time with nothing but their martingales and they do great. They look up at us quite a bit looking for a treat, right now we are expanding the distance between treats. At first we would take their entire meal with us and just feed kibble when they did good. They caught on quickly that nice walking means food. Pulling, spinning, pestering, begging, and fighting don’t get treats – unless you actually get the food bag out of our pockets If you asked me a few months ago I would have said there is no hope for any success to get them to walk nice. Aside from the occasional Tasmanian devil – I just saw squirrel or rabbit antics, they are really doing good.
