I just switched all three of my dogs to Martingale collars. Prior to that we were using a choke chain, a harness and an old martingale style collar. Two of my dogs are fine, the harness dog however is quite feisty and since we stopped using the harness she is crazy when we're trying to walk. Depending upon the length of our walk we have to cross two busy streets. Last night she had Guppy on his back in the middle of one of the streets wrestling with him all the while a car was coming and I was tangled in leashes. We got away safely but I'm not sure what to do with her. Not walking her isn't the answer, I thought about putting her back on the harness but I want her to learn to behave on the walks. Any suggestions??
Thinly disguised as a forum-it's really a place where you are accepted, understood and loved. We all share the same "problem" -we're all owned by Basenjis and love it! I have two and a B&W foster. Love Cherokee's name-hope you guys find a sibling soon. BTW-my B's are male & female….
