Smile Hello everybody

Hello everybody
I am new here
I have 12 month old GSD and he pulls me so strong all the time
I think collar puts too much preasure on my baby
Would harness help better?
Anyone ever bought from this site?
Should I consider harness in stead of collar at all?
Please help
Thank you so much

A harness is easier on the dog's anatomy. I think a better option for controlling the dog is a gentle leader - that's the kind that is a collar with an extra piece that goes over the dog's nose. Works great.

You didn't mention what kind of training your GSD has had, or is going through. I would not recommend a harness until the dog is properly obedience trained, which should be done ASAP. Considering that you are talking about him pulling, I am guessing he has not had this training yet, or it did not *take* with him?

As a retired trainer and vet tech, I would suggest a good solid web collar, making sure it is a wide enough one not to bite, and a heavy enough choke chain for training in.

Hope this helps.

This should work.


It works on our large dog. Training classes would also be a big plus.

As some have said, no equipment is going to solve this problem. You'll have to train your dog not to pull. However, RainyC provided only one method of training. There are many methods ranging from no-touch clicker (you never actually touch your dog, no leash, nothing) to some of the older, less well accepted methods (hanging your dog in the air by a choke collar? in my opinion, a bit barbaric, but some would disagree). Judging by the tone you used in your letter, I get the feeling you would be more comfortable with a method that does not require negative reinforcement or punishment, so in that case, I would reccomend clicker training, with a leash. There are alot of books and websites on this subject, as wella s quite a few excellent trainers out there. If you need help finding some, I can help you. In the meantime, my favourite "no pull" halter is the Newtrix Easyway collar, which uses calming signals to control the dog's pulling (this is NOT a training collar). It does go over the head like a GL or Halti, but does not "lead" the dog. Here is the site, check it out
