Liesje Completely fair I use a harness on one dog and probably *always* will. It just works! She is a very soft, handler-sensitive dog and the amount of correction needed to get the same results with a collar is just not worth it. She is a flyball dog and is on leash when exiting/entering tournaments/hotels and when on leash to potty. At home and at training she's off leash. She'd rather be doing flyball than spending hours learning perfect leash walking with a flat collar. The harness is secure and comfortable. She wears a bright orange ComfortFlex, the one I mentioned originally. She has very short hair (pit bull) and I like how the ComfortFlex feels almost padded, but is not heavy or bulky. For walking and most sports, I personally don't like the heavier harnesses that have a "saddle" thing on the back or a big chest plate in front.

Botox I like the input, however I am simply saying that It seems as if the harness sits better on the dog she isn't that bad of a puller I have been working on loose leash training she is doing well. I have read the thread about pulling and how to properly train the dog, thought it takes time, and during that time I would rather her wear a harness. All I am asking is peoples personal feelings about their favorite kind of harness. Again I am not substituting this as training against pulling, I am just trying to see what types of harnesses people feel their dog is comfortable in and fits well. I'm not trying to turn this thread into an argument about training techniques. Just opinions on peoples reviews of certain products, thanks!

I have never met a bad leash puller that would respond to a correction on a martingale collar and stop pulling.

the correction is proper training, which takes time. So I keep dogs in something safe and comfortable until the training takes.

K9POPPY That's missing the point, the dog will NOT be pulling if an appropriate correction is made- We have yet to see any neck damage (in hundreds of canine students) using a martingale-
