what dog owners are saying

“excellent harness ~ i bought this harness about one month ago strictly to use as a safety harness for my fur baby.  but decided to try it on her also for her morning walk.  she pulls terrible and it really makes walking her a challenge.  i hooked the leash to the hook on her chest and she no longer pulls.  i love this harness not only for her safety on car rides and trips but also for her morning walks!”

“best product ever! ~ i bought one for my rottie mix – he totally loves it and is much better behaved on walks.  then my son used it on his pyreenes so i bought him a large.  got one for one of the ladies i work with for her very large golden — she said that he does not pull when on walks.  i think it’s something about the “hugging” effect of the harness, but it really works.”
