Forum Rules
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.

Hello my name is Julie I got my first husky/malamute a couple of months ago. Her name is Bao, she's 5mths and while she's super cute she does get very hyper and of course loves to pull when on a leash. I do have her in training at the moment and am trying to get her used to a gentle leader which she hates. I was wondering if there are any suggestions on the best thing to use to keep them from pulling and walking nicely. I also just purchased a wonder walker harness today to try that but so far it doesn't seem to be as effective as the gentle leader. Also if a gentle leader is the easiest thing to use to keep them from pulling is there a specific brand I should look at that is maybe designed better then the petsafe one which works its way closer to her eye when she's pulling?
Thanks for any advice!

I use a prong collar. Properly fitted and used appropriately ie, letting the dog initiate the correction I believe this is the most humane and effective device going. But get the herm sprenger, the tips are rounded.

@bao1  If you use it properly and show them that you know its use, then I'd think they'd have less objection.  Huskies are bred to pull ... that's what that thing at the far end of their lead was for, a sled to pull all over, so stopping them from pulling is going against all their inborn nature - but it can be done.  I think it's more a case of getting to agree that it's more enjoyable to go on a jog / walk with a happy parent than to pull all the time.

The thing I've done with mine is the "change direction" technique.  Start out like you're going on a walk, when they pull turn around and go the other way,  they'll hurry up to get back in pulling position and when they do, well, just turn around again.  You may not get anywhere, at least not very fast but it doesn't take more than a few days for them to get the idea ... especially if you have a treat waiting as they go past, that gets them to slow down a bit ...

For me, the problem with some of the harnesses, especially the front clasp and the ones that cross the shoulders are that they at best, change the dogs gait and worst, damage shoulder ligaments.
