1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I have had a lot of success with a variety of dogs using a head harness. The type that turns their head if they pull. I have never used it on a husky and it takes some getting used to, but I had a ton of success with my boxer mix who passed away in 2008.

The gentle leader type. I was trying to post a link but can't?

I used them to do a bit of training on shelter dogs as well.

Hey guys, just joining the convo. I'm intrigued by the front-clip harness that you purchased, Loujaye. How's the quality? I think I want to try it on Axe as well. Not that he pulls hard when we take walks, but I have to constantly adjust him so that he walks just slightly behind me off to one side. Sometimes when I break off into a run he would also cross in front of me, which is not a good thing when we're off full tilt (I'm a big guy, 6'1 200+ lbs and I don't want to break his bones accidentally by stepping on him). Any chance I can get the link to the online store you bought the harness from here in the Philippines?  Very Happy  Thanks!

Hi TJ! Oh, definitely easier to "steer" with the front-clip harness (though we're still working on Luna's "crossing"; I don't mind having her walk a bit ahead, as long as she doesn't cross in front of us so much). I got Luna's harness from Dogify Pet Shop. It's based in Albay, so they just ship the merchandise. I couldn't find any other pet shop that sells front-clip harnesses here so I just ordered online. It feels pretty sturdy. I mean, it holds the shop owner's pitbulls pretty well, so that ought to account for something. You can see their designs in the Facebook page Smile https://www.facebook.com/petprojectshop/

Just wanted to throw my 2 cents in here. Zhukov PULLS on the leash. He pulls for the entire walk. I recently got the "Easy Walk" harness. It has the leash ring on his chest and this drastically changed his walk style. No more of the pulling. Overnight it really improved our walks, since I don't feel like I am being dragged around the neighborhood by a gorilla and I don't have to worry about him hurting himself by straining against the collar.

We are also working on the "Heel" command.... I will let you know how that goes...
