Thanks for dropping off the larger harness for Harry earlier today.....I confess, I've become a real convert to it! When you first told me to use it with Harry, I was apprehensive, and it took me some getting used to as it was awkward to get a squirming puppy hooked in to, but Harry and I learned quickly. Now he either sits for me, or as he stretches he lets me snap him in (its a bit easier for me to snap it on while he's standing). Once we start walking he's a pleasure as he isn't pulling me - and on those occassions when he wants to chase a squirrill, I can control him without being pulled off my feet! At a year old, Harry is no longer the little puppy, but an 80 pound force of nature! We will always be a work in progress, but at least when we walk, its fun and he knows I'm the boss. The other feature that I really like is the 'extra' hook onto his 'all the time' collar - until I was comfortable that I was putting the harness on right, I had the added comfort of knowing Harry couldn't break away. Thanks again!
Our yellow lab who is otherwise a very good dog was very excitable and altogether hard work to manage pulling on the leash on walks especially when walking out with our sons in their stroller or tricycles and due to physical joint and back problems which I have. Bark Busters of Naples supplied me with a WaggWalker harness and a short coaching session on how to use it and it has literally revolutionized our walks and our family days out. It is easy to use and has made exercising with our family far less strenuous and stressful. It has helped us communicate gently, humanely and effectively with our dog who responded almost instantly to it and actually enjoys her walks much more now too with it on. She stands beautifully when we have put it on unlike other training aids we have tried before Bark Busters. I could not recommend their expertise and endorsed products enough as they help to promote the health and happiness of our dogs and our own selves too and I am infinitely grateful to them for introducing us to the WaggWalker.
I bought a Wagg Walker harness at the MN state fair and had to take the time to tell you that I love it. It is honestly a life changer. I used it on my dog today for the first time and it was like magic! No more choking and strangling herself. She walked so nicely by my side that she was like a whole different dog. I still can't believe the difference. You have a perfect product!
I just purchased the WaggWalker for my puggle who is so unruly on her walks, she is always in the beagle hunter mode distracted by squirrels, birds, other dogs...... We just went on our first walk with the WaggWalker, and what a difference! Our walk was enjoyable as opposed to dreaded! Thank you so much, please pass the word on to the inventor if you have access to him!
I got one of your WaggWalker harnesses at Super Zoo in Las Vegas. I have a 22 month old Pit. I have tried a gentle leader which he just roles himself until I take it off. I have tried a nylon choke with a traffic lead, which he still pulled on even after months of daily walks. From the first day of putting on his new WaggWalker he walked better. He only pulled a couple times the first three times I walked him. He no longer pulls and even my niece can walk him, she has never trained a dog before. She watched your video online and started walking Gus the first day. Gus gets very excited when he sees other people and dogs when he's on his walks, he thinks everyone wants to play...now he just sits and makes noises to let us know he still wants to play. I would highly recommend the WaggWalker for anyone who has a dog who pulls. I even plan to order a couple WaggWalkers for the shelter I volunteer at when we start taking the dogs back to Petsmarts in attempts to get them adopted. Thank you for this great tool.
I had tried many anti-pull products previously including limited slip collars, harnesses etc. I found it difficult having a brachycephalic dog as a Halti head collar would have been an ideal choice, but he has no muzzle! The WaggWalker was given to me by a colleague to try out and it has really changed my life! I worried that my mother would not be able to handle walking my dog Winston whilst I was on holiday but the WaggWalker made me feel confident that she could take him on daily walks without being dragged around! He soon learnt to walk to heal and now even does so without the harness. It also improved his off lead walking position and he remains much closer to me now. I would highly recommend this product to any dog or puppy owner who battles with their dog pulling, making walks a chore rather than an enjoyable experience you share with your four legged friends.
After trying every single dog harness on the market I have finally found one that works. The WaggWalker makes walking my dog an absolute pleasure. My dog walks so nicely by my side, no more pulling or tripping me up. Along with Bark Busters training this has been the perfect tool for a perfectly behaved dog on our walks. It has even kept him focused while there are a lot of distractions going on around him. It is easy to put on / use and there is no more yanking, choking or pulling. All you need is the WaggWalker.
I keep meaning to contact you to tell you the harness for Chloe has made a huge difference for walks. We haven't had a chance to run her yet with it, but it seems like it will yield great results. She is just more alert and tuned in when she has it on. It has made a huge difference! Thank you.
I can't thank you enough for the new harness you brought for Mollie. We just returned from the most enjoyable walk we've ever had together. No more pulling!! Thank you so much. I look forward to seeing you in January. Have a great new year.
We have introduced both dogs to the WaggWalker Harness... and what a difference! The second owner, in particular, hailed it as a miracle - "The first time I've ever enjoyed walking this dog!". When we left her at the end of this afternoon's lesson, she was walking her French Bulldog down her street with zero pulling, the dog's tail was just wagging with joy, and I swear if the owner had a tail it would have been doing exactly the same!
My trainer is Rob Machi he gave me the WaggWalker for my 2 dogs this past Friday and I see a significant difference when walking them. Casey is very nervous outside and is constantly pulling and killing my arm she weighs around 82 lbs as soon as I started using the WaggWalker she doesn't pull at all. My other dog Sable is very hard to control when she sees another dog last night when my husband and I were walking the dogs Sable saw 2 dogs walking together my husband was able to get better control of Sable with the WaggWalker. We are truly amazed with this product and how wonderful it works
