    So about a month ago I bought an Easy Walk front clip harness only to find out the size was too big for Sadie at the time. I had been having a lot of problems with Sadie pulling on her leash and not being able to control her well,now more than ever since she's a 50 pound lab mix and could probably pull me onto my face if she wanted. Today I tried the harness again and it actually fit this,time I even had to loosen it a little. Didn't think she grew that much but apparently did. I took her outside and we walked up and down our driveway(we have a long driveway) and the results were...absolutely amazing..I didn't know what to do with myself other than walk and give her treats. She did so well! It's got a martingale loop on the front,I don't know if that has to do it or not,but i did notice if she walked a little ahead of me if i just gave a very gentle pull on the leash she would immediately slow down and return to my side or walk behind me. It's like a whole new dog. I'm so excited!

    Glad to hear it worked. I've been wanting to try one of these with Savannah but none of the stores around here carry them and I wouldn't know what size to order lol.

    Hi, thanks for this post. These look really good and exactly what my friend needs. He recently bought a rottweiller and his wife has trouble walking the dog when he is out of town, which he is regularly.

    I will get them one of these and see if it helps.

    I use those on both my pooches. It is really awesome. Actually yesterday I had the leash hooked to their collars just 'cause we weren't going far (to the car and back), and it was ridiculous... they just about pulled me to the ground. Makes a huge difference with the harness.
