Ha, not one bit. I actually happened to notice it because the dog flew past me on its way to take down another dog.

I shouldn't laugh but it entertained me. Saw a kid in the same set up in the store. He kept using it like a bungee cord which made the mom yell more. Kept waiting for that full circle moment. lol

I saw a toddler in a pulling harness attached to a grocery cart full of bricks...I'm guessing the tyke was in training for his future appearance on World's Strongest Baby competitions.

Picture attached is the kid trash talking a dog telling the dog he couldn't pull his way out of a wet paper bag....and a " I own you"..for good measure.

My mom tried a harness with leash once with my younger brother, as soon as it was clipped on he got down on all fours right on the sidewalk and started crawling and barking and whining like a dog. She was so embarrassed she never tried it again

Personally I thought it was absolutely hilarious to watch

LOL, that reminds me, my mother used to tie my older brother outside in a harness and a leash to a tree on the front lawn so he would not wander away.

From my earliest memories, we had a fenced yard, so I was spared the same treatment.

This is awesome. Ha. I was in winners the other day and some woman had a toddler that screamed the whole time, he screamed until people put down there things and left, **** I put down my stuff and waited in sportschek for andrew. It was brutal, she was clearly practicing positive reinforcement only with him as she was ignoring everything..waiting for the good behavior. When I was growing up this would not of happened. I would have gotten the absolutely terrifying "do we need to visit the washroom" that was enough to shut my whole fit down lol.

I think its pretty clever. With the Flexi there's no slack on the belt so hopefully the child won't get tangled. You never know if this child has a learning disability and just may bolt or not pay attention to mom.

I could definitely see that if it was one of the shorter Flexi maybe. But this was like a 20' Flexi. He was wrapping himself around people and counters and knocking things off shelves. It seemed like it would have been less of a hassle to just have a regular six foot leash on him if he needed to be restrained somehow.

Oh my! I didn't read that, this is not good.

I just don't agree with leashes on kids in general, that's bad parenting in my opinion.. disclaimer---I don't have kids.. I may change my mind
