Are no-pull harness safe?
Are no-pull harness safe?
A “no-pull” harness may be an effective way to prevent your dog from pulling too much on the leash, however they can lead to some problems. These harnesses restrict proper shoulder movement, and by doing so limit the amount of pulling, but also negatively affect their normal gait patterns.
How does a non pull dog harness work?

How do you train a dog to walk on a leash without pulling?

Why does my dog pull so much when walking?

These tools can be used as part of different training methods to discourage pulling AND encourage good behavior.
