Q: Anti-Pull Harness
So I have a 96 pound loveable mutt that has ALOT of energy. So I really need to know what the best anti-pull harnesses are, what worked for you, your friends, please help.

We have a couple of large active dogs & a medium-sized Sherman tank. lol We started leash training our first dog with Yuppie Puppy & Sporn harnesses...the kind without the mesh inset between the padded sleeves. That stopped her from pulling immediately. I got the new kind with the mesh inset when the other dogs were rescued & they didn't work nearly as well. Once I switched back to the original design, the pulling stopped & we were able to work on training. Don't just rely on a harness though. While you've got control, you also need to work on actual leash training so your dog will no longer try to pull & will know how to heel. Harnesses help get you started, but nothing replaces training.
