I also use the sensation harnessThe golden girls do very well with just a leash & collar. I use the Sensation harness on Cody since he has such spinal and disc issues. It's much gentler on their spine and is designed for pullers since the leash connection is in the front on their sternum. I also have been using this on my neighbors dog who is a part Dobe/ greyhound..... long story, but I've been walking and training her. She has a tendency to slip her collar and with the Sensation Harness I can clip the leash to both the collar and harness for double safety. BYW.... I'm way in love with this dog... gotta get a pic up of her.
I agree. Relying solely on a harness (or any other equipment) can give you a false sense of security and can be very dangerous.I'm 100% in the collar camp. I want my dog walking next to me because he's trained, and I want the leash only to be there as a safety measure or because it's required in the area. I wouldn't want to rely indefinitely on specialized equipment to control the dog.
