The Easy Walk Harness "Choke", "Prong", or "Shock" collars are NOT a substitute for training. If a trainer suggests you use one of these collars, we suggest you continue your search for a positive technique trainer. Consider the use of the Easy Walk Harness, it does not use adversive methods to train your dog.
APDT Loose Leash Walking Webinar Tired of having your arm yanked out? Many dog owners complain their dogs pull and wonder why. After all, the poor dog is choking, and he is choking himself! You'd think the dog would learn not to do that! This webinar will delve into the reasons dogs pull on the leash, how your dog views the leash, and what your dog thinks of your roll at the other end of the leash. You'll learn simple strategies to teach your dog not to pull. Once you understand your dog's perspective, and how to create a cooperative connection, you'll soon be in partnership with your dog.
A word about leashes....We recommned using a light weight leather or nylon web leash. Especially if using an Easy Walk Harness you do not want a heavy leash that will weigh down the front strap and attachment link.
Retractable leashes have their place, but we do not recommend them to be used with the Easy Walk Harness, for training, OR for loose leash walking. Retractable leashes actually reward your dog for pulling and will make loose leash training very difficult. Reserve the use of retractable leashes for when you are allowing your dog free play or potty time while you wish to remain stationary.
