I really like the product as I did help with the pulling, however my dog was raw under her right armpit. I think padding of some sort would help as the material really cuts into the skin.
> PetSafe Response: Hi Judy, thanks for your feedback. We have a range of harness sizes which may be the solution, or an alternative design called EasySport that incorporates the padding. We'll contact you directly and help you to adjust the fitting of the harness so that it stops the rubbing under your dog's armpit. Thanks again.
Great harness it does help with the pulling on a walk, but the only problem I have with it is that the adjusting clips need the have the teeth on them to stop the straps from getting loose all the time, to the point if I don't watch it my dog could pull right out of it.
> PetSafe Response: Hi Jane, it's great to hear from you, thanks for getting in touch and sharing your feedback. We'll be in touch directly to help you with adjusting the clips as they shouldn't work their way lose so easily. Kind regards.
I currently started dog walking a friend's dog and noticed that the ring to hook on the leash is in the front, I find it discomforting for myself and the dog. When it's set up in the front (shown on the photo of the box) I feel like it's choking him at times, along with rubbing up against his left leg causing him to be sore in that area. I'm also having a difficult time walking him myself because it's just pulling him to the left, it's not positioned that i can slightly pull once and he gets the idea not to keep pulling. I find when the harness is positioned the other way with the ring on the back, one strap underneath back of legs, and other strap at chest area, that he and I are a lot more safe. I'm just wondering Why do you position is that way, Whats' the motive to it being on the front chest?
> PetSafe Response: Hi Tanya, great question and thanks for sharing your feedback!
Traditional dog walking leads attach to the dog's collar and means he can pull, twist and turn as he pleases. It can often become quite a challenge for the walker to keep the dog under control. With our Easy Walk Harness, we have designed the ring hook so it's located on the dog's chest (not on their back). So when the dog pulls, the pressure is applied to the chest area which activates the dog’s opposition reflex and their natural instinct lean back against the pressure – rather than moving away from it – and reduces pulling. All dogs have a natural opposition reflex - if you push against them, they push back. If you pull them back, they pull away. So any harness that pulls from the dog’s back, actually works against the owner by increasing the dog's instinct to pull forward away from the owner.
If you have fitted the Harness with the ring hook on the dog's back you may face the same problems as a traditional collar as the dog can start to pull again. If you need further support, our Customer Care team will be happy to help :)
