Good morning! I know a lot of people get help from this board so I figured I'd ask here.. I've worked with a trainer before on how to get my dog to stop pulling her leash and I've tried her suggestion, of changing direction and pulling on the leash to get her to stop, to no avail and I've also tried a walking harness. The walking harness helped a lot, but she is able to squirm her way out of the walking harness even when it's properly adjusted so that it's not too tight but not too loose (2 fingers rule), which is dangerous because she's an extremely fast runner and we can't catch her if she gets away. She'll come back but not until she's gotten a few laps in and we live near a residential road which scares me. We've also tried her regular harness, but that doesn't help. She continues to pull on the leash to the point where she hacks up a lung.
Does anyone have any other suggestions to get her to stop pulling so much? Or suggestions on a walking harness they've had luck with?
