My husband had purchased the Better Control Harness to use with our 2 year old GSD, Cork. I was skeptical that it would work. Walking Cork was always difficult for me. She would pull so hard that it was almost impossible for me to do it on my own. The first thing I noticed about the harness was that it seemed to be very well made and I loved all the different places you could hook a leash (there are four.) The handle is also a huge plus because it is easy enough to grab onto in a pinch. When I put the harness on my dog, her behavior seemed to change instantly. She was calm and tentative to my direction. I hooked her leash to the front chest ring and we set out for her walk. I instantly saw a difference. With a normal collar she would take off running, dragging me along with her. This harness makes it impossible for her to pull. We walked further than we ever have and my arms weren't even tired afterwards. The only negative I found was that the strap that fits around her chest fits just fine but the strap that runs up the dogs chest is a bit big. It buckles when she walks. This being said she is on the smaller side for a GSD and it doesn't seem to bother her. Plus with the results I have seen I can live with the fit! Thank you so much!! This harness is a miracle! I was at my wits end with this dog but now we can both enjoy our walks without stress.
