Chip18 Some videos here on training your dog to walk on a "loose" leash. Generally a harness is "not" the way to go with an untrained dog, once your dog can walk well on a loose leash then you can use a harness.
stop dog pulling on leash - YouTube

Harness are for pulling:

shepherdmom I use both. It depends on the situation.

Jax08 Prongs are not allowed in Scotland, correct or not?

If you are training to walk, I would use a collar, clicker and treats. Teach them position. OR a harness specifically for training. But the more info I see come out about harnesses, the less I'm inclined to like them.

huntergreen imho, a harness is for training a dog to pull. for now, until reliably trained the on on a leash i would stick with a collar. keep in mind i am not an expert.

SuperG Only ever used a leash and collar....

But, if trying a harness corrected a situation which you are unable to with a collar...then more power to you......but I'm not sure what situation that would be?
