Why Use A No Pull Dog Harness?

October 27, 2020

A no pull dog harness is a harness that discourages your dog from pulling. This type of harness can get your walks back on track. If your dog is constantly pulling then you can consider one of these harnesses. It teaches your dog to walk properly along side you and can be used as a daily harness or a training aide.



There are essentially only three different types of no pull dog harnesses available on the market and they come in different variations.

  1. Back attachment harnesses
  2. Front attachment harnesses
  3. Head harnesses or head collars

Back Attachment Harnesses

These harnesses have the attachment for a leash on the back of the dog, sitting right behind the shoulder blades. Back attachment harnesses are particular good when you need to take pressure off your dog's neck.


Front Attachment Harnesses

These harnesses have an attachment for the leash at the front of your dog, right in the middle of their chest. Front attachment harnesses are beneficial if you're dog is constantly pulling. How it works is when your dog decides to pull they will naturally be pulled on their side as the leash attachment is in the front of the harness. This stops them from pulling and as time goes they will slowly learn to stop pulling.


Head Harness or Head Collar

These are not really a harness in the strictest of terms, but they are frequently described as such and are always grouped with the harnesses by manufacturers. Regardless, they are a great no-pull dog harness solution. Head harnesses work by making your dog's head face you whenever they pull. This causes them to stop in their tracks and focus on you. It takes time for your dog to become used to this so patience is advised.
