How to change it: Teach your dog an alternative behavior to do instead. For some dogs, merely asking for a heel while walking or rewarding a quiet behavior while waiting, such as a down, replaces the leash chewing. You can also take the fun out of unwanted mouthing by downplaying the behavior. Try using two leashes, one on a harness and the other on the collar. When your dog grabs one leash to mouth or chew, drop the leash to take away the resistance that is naturally created when you’re holding on to the leash. Switch between leashes as needed so that there is no fun tug available with the leash game.

– it has a velvet band on the underside so it’s good for dogs with sensitive skin or short-hair that may rub with regular nylon harnesses. The smallest size fits dogs as little as a 14” chest. They do have a double leash you can buy to use with it, but I personally find that method confusing to both dog and owner. This multi-function dog leash is being used on an urban trek in convenience with our red Quick-Fit dog harness.

On the back-clip harness, the ring that the leash clips onto is located on the top of the dog’s back. Back-clip harnesses are the most agreeable type of walking equipment for many dogs to adjust to. The harnesses are especially useful for small dogs with delicate throats easily damaged by collars. Back-clip harnesses are for calm dogs trained not to pull on the leash, as the design does little to discourage pulling. When back-clip harnesses are used with an untrained dog who likes to pull, they create a sled-pulling action, with the owner dragged along in place of the sled.The 1" wide webbing is better proportioned for big shouldered, wide-framed dogs. It is also better for high energy, reactive big dogs.X-Small and Mini harnesses are designed to be used with light weight leashes/snaps (7/16" or 3/8" wide). Retractable leashes are not recommended.Before ordering, please for a proper fit.If the measurement falls within two harnesses, we suggest the larger size. Example: 20" girth = Small size Say goodbye to pulling, jerking, jumping, and chasing!

Our goal is to provide equipment that fits well, is easy to use, and is comfortable for your dog to wear. All our products are designed and made in Seattle, Washington. Phoebe loves her daily walks. She loves to sniff other dogs, mailboxes, bushes, trash cans, and anything else she can get her nose into. She's also pretty stubborn, so she'll pull you over to investigate everything. But when you try to pull her away to keep walking, you have to pull against her whole body weight, and she nearly chokes herself on her collar.

With an Easy Walk Harness, Phoebe's a completely different dog on a walk. When it's time to keep walking, a gentle tug on the leash is enough to pull her away. The harness rests against her chest and controls her torso, so when she pulls, the harness moves her whole body the way you want, instead of just choking her. She still gets to enjoy her walk, and now you don't have to fight her at every step.Issues with the size? No problem problem! Just contact us to get an exchange or return started.
