Where is the leap to all harnesses? Sounds like she is talking about the restrictive, no-pull types? I have a few harnesses I use (mainly for flyball and nosework) but specifically fit them to sit higher up on the chest, like where a loosely fitted collar or fursaver would lie, so that it doesn't restrict the dog being able to extend forward or jump. I no longer use the no-pull harnesses because they just haven't worked as effectively as other tools and are easy for a wild dog to get out of.
