I bought this "as seen on tv" product and love it. Thought I would share in case anyone else is wondering how it is. It's 2 for $10.99, you also get two leashes and a toy but they get you on the shipping. It came out to $21 + but I still think it was worth it. It's not the best quality but much better then the skinny harness I ws using. My dog was able to get out of that one but can't get out of this one. I feel like I have much better control over them when we go for a walk and they are not pulled at all around the neck. Just note, I have two mini dachshunds so not sure how it would be for a large dog.

No because it's sorta against the TOS. Don't have to, just copy/paste name of product in Google - Comfy Dog Harness. Or it might come up in the Google ads CD has on the page. By the way, one of my dogs is also named Bella. That's what it was when I adopted her and I just kept it because I liked it.

I got Caesar one of those dog harnesses at Bed Bath & Beyond, but I saw them at
Walmart last time I went there. Anyway, it was one of the very few "As seen on TV"
items that I got that actually worked okay. Caesar has a broad chest, like most pekingese,
so I bought the medium size.

Didn't realize that "Comfy Dog Harness" was the actual name. Thought it was just a description. Will check it out.

Isabella was the only name that my DD and I agreed on. Bella, Bellisimo, Bellamia, I could go on. lol

Talking Harness...

Question, does it stop your dog from pulling?

Purpose behind the question is that a harness is made for tracking and pulling. There is a "new" harness out that is suppose to stop the dog from pulling. I have not tried this harness because of the premise behind the harness (tracking and pulling; such as carts or sleds)

Just looked at their ad. My dog looks like the big red one on the right! What are the "control signals" it talks about?

Thanks in advance!

No, it doesnt stop them...I think me training them correctly would be the only thing to stop that. I have two dachshunds and they are very stubborn so not easy to train. I like the new harness because when they do pull, they aren't choked.

I bought the "as seen on tv" comfy harness that come with a leash at Michaels craft store. The only problem is that it secures with velcro and my chiweenie has slipped out of it somehow... Unless the velcro is perfectly secured, then he slips out.. but it gets an "A" for comfort!!

I have always used a harness with my pit. It is secured under the belly and around the chest with buckles that can be adjusted to provide maximum comfort. The inside is made of lamb's wool. It's a great invention and so much better for the dog.

a harenss only encorages pulling IF the dog is allowed to belive thats what its for.

Ive met many dogs at weight pull events who walk PERFECTLY on a harness and leash despite also being taught to pull in that very same harness...

the only thing that STOPS pulling is training.
Harensses are just MUCH better for the neck (and primarily the trechea)...

i have known many people use harness as an excuse as to why their dogs pull "oh he only pulls because hes wearing a harness" but its just an excuse.

if youve got a puller something like the easy walk or sporn harness are a better purchase.
