Martingale/slip collar when we go to vet or out of yard but when home just regular buckle collar and that is just so she has ID tags on her at all times. I used to use harnesses for my non gsds puppies for control. I don't need a harness for my GSD puppy though.

I like harnesses for puppies, or the front attach type if it's an older puppy or a dog who pulls. I use a collar or Halti for Bianca.

For puppies under 6 months old, I like to use a harness.

For puppies between 6 months to a year I like the buckle collars and for older puppies I perfer the Martingale.

I think a harness puts less stress on their joints/muscles at that age, usually they are constantly pulling this young.

My boy is almost 4 months old. He has a collar and is doing very well with it. I've used a harness in the past and that worked well, too.

skylar is 5 1/2 months old, I use a buckle collar for everyday walks, and training- and a harness for longer hikes, she doesn't walk any different with one over the other, she never pulls. i just like the look of the harness on her

Bandit is on a harness. I have a harness on him because I feel there is less strangulation hazard there.

Front Clip harness for long walks.

Whitman is about 90% now at loosh leash walking on his flat collar, but I like having more control when "OMG SQUIRREL!" or something else pops up and he gets to be a little much.
