If your dog pulls on the lead, conventional collars can hurt your dog’s neck. The answer is to invest in a no pull dog harness for a more pleasurable and safer walk.
Do No-pull Dog Harnesses Work?
Yes, no-pull dog harnesses do work. When the dog pulls the pressure is not on the neck but instead, gentle pressure is applied to the chest and shoulder area. A two-point control harness is especially good.
What is a Two-Point Harness?
A two-point harness has two areas to attach the lead: the dog’s chest area and the other between the shoulders. You’ll need a two-point control leash that has two clasps to attach to the harness. You can buy these together as a set.

How do you use a Two-Point Harness?
Attach the two-point control lead to the front ring and the back ring. Attaching the lead to both these points prevents the dog from pulling as the dog cannot pull in a straight line and gets turned towards you once they start to pull. This is ideal for strong pullers.
Here are some of the popular no-pull harnesses:
Halti No-Pull Harness
The Halti no-pull harness is designed to be a comfortable way to retrain your dog to walk without pulling on the lead and has a stop-pull lifting feature that is activated when the dog starts to pull. This corrects them to stop pulling and walk at your speed.
The harness features a no-slip chest panel that stays securely in place during walks to prevent pulling. It can also be used to stow small items like poop bags or clickers during walks.
