My dog Nellie is an Akita/American Bulldog cross – so you can imagine the on-lead pulling power she has. Her Canny Collar works really well – no pulling at all, but she’s not keen on wearing it. For long walks on an extended lead I found a brilliant harness solution.
I found most harnesses too flimsy and one I bought rubbed off the fur under Nellie’s front legs (our armpit equivalent), the rough bands made it painful for her to walk too. Also Nellie, being a clever gal, discovered a way of wriggling out of standard harnesses on sale.

There’s a brilliant harness solution to be found at Pets Pyjamas. As well as being more comfortable the harness is equipped with a useful handle on the top, very practical when Nellie is gearing up to lurch for a squirrel, or in Nellie’s case, even an innocently grazing pigeon.

The front band with its reflective strip, whilst only Velcro, trust me is very strong and the ribcage band is further back so doesn’t chafe her armpits. It’s constructed for maximum comfort whilst trekking and Nellie really enjoys wearing it. It’s a tad more expensive, but well worth the investment.

The link is here.

Aaaah yes, it is a lot like the Julius K9 harness. I was looking at the Hurtta active harness for Tia, mainly because its bright and I mean bright PINK


Glad you can walk her nicely on it and without it rubbing her little legs and tummy
If your dog doesn't like someone, then you probably shouldn't either !

Thanks for the info right now I use a car harness on Asia, she's happy with it for now and it's a bit padded and has nice thick straps but I love the idea of a handle for a quick grab when needed
