Was looking into getting a new dog harness for my pup and wondering if anyone knows anything about this harness. http://amzn.com/B01F2YIPS2

The reviews seem great, but I am not sure. Let me know what you guys think.

It depends on your needs. If your dog pulls to the side, it looks like the harness would rotate sideways due to not having a strap between the front legs. Also, there's no padding on the under portion of the girth, so it might rub too much. But I like the padded chest strap, and it would be easier to put on than a step-in harness.

I'm a dog walker and have a client that just got a harness like this (I'm not sure of the brand, but it looks very similar) for her pit mix that PULLS. The harness is a miracle worker! I have another client that has the type of harness with the padded chest strap (again, I don't know the brand) that doesn't seem to work as well. Just telling my personal experience with these types of harnesses. I myself use this Walk EZ leash for my dog that pulls: http://www.aquatherapups.com/#!walk-e...

I just ordered one of these harnesses the other day, hope it helps with my client, an 8 month old Lab

I received my EZLeash last week and have walked my 3 pulling clients every day this week with awesome results. I highly recommend this product

I'm glad the Walk EZ Leash is working well for you!

The type of harness does depend on your needs and the training your dog has had or will be getting. I did a little research on harnesses for dogs and found this web site to be very informative: http://heavy.com/pets/2016/06/top-best-dog-harnesses-harness-no-pull-easy-walk-gentle-leader-reviews/ (http://heavy.com/pets/2016/06/top-bes...) It shows 10 Dog Harnesses and includes videos.
The video for the Dexdog harness shows the owner on a bicycle and the dog on a leash. Please never do this it is very dangerous for people and the dog.

It's a really good harness because it doesn't cause any tension on the neck however it wouldn't be good for a dog that pulls a lot because this is encouraging pulling. If you would like your dog is not pull you all the way down the street I suggest you get an ez-walk harness it works much better with pulling.
