One of the top tools in my training belt is the . It's a leash with a built-in mechanism to be turned into a gentle anti-pull device. The system works with pressure, as it tightens to add pressure when the dog pulls, making it more comfortable to walk on a loose leash. The does not cause pain, but uses the reward of slack as the dog walks nicely on the leash.

We would stop everytime she pulled and stand there, but then when we would resume walking, 50% of the time she would start to pull again. We tried treats, we did the 180 degree turn and pull technique, an e collar, everything!
My neighbor has a golden retriever that pulled until they got a Sporn non pull harness. It tightens around the armpits/chest when our dog Shadow pulls. The difference has been a miracle – NO more pulling! Now when she pulls, it tightens, she slows down, and looks at me, and walks with loose leash after that!

One of my favorites is a , which instead of attaching to the back of the dog like a standard harness it connects in front, at the chest. The cool thing about this kind of harness is that it’s self correcting – every time the dog pulls he gets turned back around in the opposite direction. All you have to do is hold the leash and wait for him to pull.Imagine your dog walking happily by your side, stopping when you stop, turning when you turn, and continuing with you past other dogs and people. He doesn't pull on the leash, and he only goes potty and sniffs when you give permission. Leash manners is probably the most challenging thing you will probably teach him to do, but it is fun too and well worth the effort! Read on to begin to make this vision a reality.Before we begin:A head collar or front-attachment harness can help to discourage your dog from pulling, but he will need training to learn to walk beside you without pulling at all.A front-attachment harness is a safe and easy to use no-pull device that is great for all dogs. Choose a head collar for dogs with aggressive tendencies or for those that need the maximum amount of control such as a small owner with giant-breed dog.The front-attachment harness and head collar should only be used with leashes that are a maximum of 6 feet long. If the leash is too long, it is possible that he could get going fast enough to hurt himself if he were to hit the end of the leash abruptly.A simple way to help your dog learn to walk without pulling on the leash is to stop moving forward when he pulls and to reward him with treats when he walks by your side. If your dog is not very interested in food treats, then you can a tug a toy or toss a ball for him in place of feeding a treat.The steps below will go into more detail in order to help you to teach him how to have excellent leash manners.Step 1:Walking with my person is delicious!Gigo walking by my side. Feeding Gigo a treat by my side.Step 2: It's worth my while to watch where my person is going and go along too! "Let's go", and walking away.Step 3: I know when it's time to smell (or to pee on) the rosesAuthorized sniff break!Step 4: Sometimes I really need to pay attention to where my person is going!Taking it to the Street:Challenge:Troubleshooting: Heel:I have a 6 month old puppy that pulls on the leash, especially on the way to the dog park. I always stop when she pulls and she will quickly come back to my side, or sit down and wait for me to start walking again – which is great! BUT, as soon as I take a single step, she bolts forward, sometimes so hard that she tumbles when she gets to the end of the leash (I use the easy walk, front attaching, harness). Walking is very frustrating and slow. Do you have any suggestions?
