Without the EZ Harness my arm is ready to pop!I'm still working with the dogs with the EZ Walk Harness and I've got to tell you what a huge relief it is. I have never been 100% comfortable with the nose harness (like a Halti) and still feel bad for using it, but with the EZ walk harness it is like a huge weight has been lifted. It is easy to use and control, but the biggest relief is that the dogs are so relaxed and comfortable in it, which eases my consciousness. Even Brut. And while we still have some practicing to do I am thoroughly impressed with the ease and toll it takes off my body. The bursitis in my shoulder is thanking me immensely.
For some reason some of the dogs are taking to the harness so well, I barely have to do anything but enjoy the walk, like with Fiona, Chance and Zappa. It really is quite mind blowing, to go from some form of tension and pulling on the leash to hardly any. Even Brut, Mr. Determined seems to be thrown from plowing forward any way he wants to go by letting up on the leash. I'll have a long way to go with him, but he hasn't reached any level of frustration or copped an attitude yet, so we are doing great!
One thing I love about the brand of EZ Walk Harness that we got it has two clasps, one for the chest and one that goes around the back and because of that I don't have to slip the harness over anyone's head. That is a gift. I don't know if they are all designed that way, but I'd never get it on some of the dogs if it had to go over their heads.
And so we are rocking and rolling with the EZ Walk Harness and I couldn't be more pleased. I meant to get photos of the dogs wearing them, but I completely forgot the last time we were out and today it rained, so please forgive me. You'll just have to take our word that it is working for us!
