HARNESSES, HALTERS & LEASHES
Not every harness is created equal! As you will notice, many of the harnesses I recommend below are front clip or offer both front and back clip options. This is an important feature! Dogs have a natural response to pressure called their "Opposition Reflex". This reflex causes them to instinctively pull/push back against any force put on them. You may notice this on your walks with your back clip harnesses. The harder you pull them back, the harder your dog pulls against you! By using a front clip harness (or, even better, a head halter!), you have more control of your dog's forward momentum, and their opposition reflex does not kick in as strongly! This helps prevent the continued practice of pulling on walks, while you train your dog to loose leash walk!
