Here’s what makes this harness so wonderful: The Easy Walk Harness gently discourages your dog from pulling on the leash. Easy to fit and comfortable to wear, the Easy Walk Harness makes walking enjoyable for you and your dog. The front-chest leash attachment helps you steer your dog to the side and redirect his attention toward you. The chest strap rests across your dog’s chest instead of putting pressure on the delicate throat, so there’s no choking or gagging. These harnesses come in sizes for toy breeds all the way up to giant breeds. A comfortable dog is a happy, well behaved dog!
Harnesses and slings are two types of common dog mobility devices that are often solid solutions for dogs that have trouble standing or that tire easily but have not yet lost all their mobility. These dog-walking aids often strap on around the hind legs and come with a leash that owners can gently lift in order to help the dog stand up; these are sometimes referred to as "rear support leashes". Harnesses and slings also come in models that fit around a dog's middle or its front legs, depending on where the dog needs the help. These harnesses are great aids for pet mobility and allow the dog to get the exercise he or she needs.

If you’re concerned all that pulling could be harmful to your dog’s neck, you could consider walking him on a no-pull harness. This type of that can be used to teach the dog to walk nicely on a loose leash. You clip the leash to the front chest strap, so the dog will turn in towards you if he tries to pull.It’s the brand I chose for Sophie during her illness. We used the the entire time Sophie was paralyzed. I loved the product because it was soft but durable, reasonably priced and my dog could pee while she wore it. (That was truly a big deal). I always had two harnesses on hand so one could be tossed into the washing machine while Sophie wore the other. The little pants on the Rear Harness are easy to put on and take off and the harness always stayed in place with a big Velcro band. I also appreciated the long nylon straps on the harness because it allowed me to lift and guide Sophie as we walked without straining my back. My only suggestion to improve this harness would be to add padding to the straps because the nylon could be a little rough on my hands.I would never use a front attach harness, having tried then when they first came in. Firstly, they are NOT no-pull harnesses - the dogs can, and will, still pull - either by crabbing (about which I agree with Chris Zink), or my straddling the lead. And secondly I have never seen a dog look comfortable in a front attach harness. The chest strap come across the upper arm/shoulder and restricts natural movement. I have successfully used an H-style harness with a back attachment -- one advantage with these is that the lead is up out of the way of the dog's feet. However the best solution for a confirmed puller is a double lead with one lead attached to a head halter and the other lead (or end of a double-ended lead) attached to a good broad buckle collar -- with the clip attached UNDER the chin. (I buy my dogs' collars one size too big and cut it down to fit, The broadness means minimal chance of injuring or even hurting the dog's neck.) Walk the dog normally on the lead attached to the collar. AS SOON AS the dog pulls enough to mean the clip is not hanging down freely under the dogs chin, STOP -- and very gently tighten the lead to the head collar to turn the dog's face towards you. The dog will stop and release the tension on the 'collar lead' , so praise and continue your walk. Eventually you will be able to dispense with the head halter altogether.Because many dogs have different issues, the handle, leash and shoulder strap can all be hooked onto the harness in varying ways where the dog needs the most support. The walking accessories provide more leverage for lifting the bigger dogs than using just the elevated handles, or extra leverage when walking your dog.
