She is gorgeous! I liked the vertical take off manouvres! My Springer Elmo does great ones too! Very interesting to see the harness in action. I am thinking of purchasing one, as I walk a Sprocker for someone and she pulls like a train! Her owner doesn't keep her leather collar conditioned and I am rather worried that it would snap on a walk! (I put one of my own on her)
Thank you heidi, they are full of beans aren't they, went for a walk today and she was off the lead running around like crazy for two hours and was ready to go again when I got back, :)I was shattered.
I can really recommand these harnesses they are fantastic!!
Clare has a harness called Perfect Fit, it is very similar to yours, but wider and softer material and has a D ring on the fron and on the back. She has found it to be brilliant because if both rings are used then if he pulls he comes round to the side instead of where he wants to go straight on.
She only needs to use the back ring mostly now too. Her trainer suggested it.
Do you still have Snowy as havent heard you mention him for a while? I may have missed something you have posted as havent been able to get on here very much, been busy and also puter been playing up.
Hi Gwen, that sounds great,I didn't see that one, sounds great, I looked and ordered the freedom harness too which has the two rings one for back and front but the walk in sync came first in the post, I like the lead on the walk in sync too.
no sadly I haven't got snowy anymore I had to make the very painful and hard decision to have him pts he had neverouse agression towards people from a pup, everything was done, trainers and everything but it couldn't be fixed in him I done everything to keep him safe, he wore a muzzle every where he went,even in the garden but my son and his girldfrend moved in and snowy went to bite her face.
I got lectures after lectures from everyone, that it was only a matter of time before he did bite someone, he hated walks too, he would never go to tolet when out, he would only go in the garden, as he wouldn't put himself in a vauable postion. in the end he had no life too the garden was like folk nots incase he got out and bit anyone we couldn't get anyone to look after him if we went away which we coudn't as he wouldn't let anyone other tham me and my husband near him. I loved him with all my heart and its was horrendously painful to make that decision
to anyone who didn't know my story with snowy, I write on the members forum and it was last year he was sadly pts this was the story of snowy
Snowy was a white German Shepard with nervous aggressive, I got him when he was 15 weeks old, he was the last puppy left in the litter, my mum went to buy him for me 4 years ago as a surprise as I had always wanted a white German shepard., but when she saw him he was barking at her from under the table,so she thought I better see him first.
I saw him and thought no, that's not the type of dog I want as he was hiding and barking at us, the breeder said he had only just started doing that in the last couple of weeks.
so we spent some time with him,when we should have walked away.
the longer we were there the better he seemed at coming around. we went to thnik about him and returned to see him and he seemed okay with the second time so we thought then he was fine and any little problems could be sorted so we had him. brought him home he was great and great with my old Jake Russell I was surprised to find he was house trained and he didn't chew anything took him to puppy classess where he spent whole time wanting to hide and bark at everyone and he growled at anyone who went near him.
then found he wouldn't poo or wee anywhere other than his own garden
every food went right through him and found through tests at the vets he had an enzyme deficiency where he couldn't break down his food, he lost loads of weight but I found a food he could have that being chappie.
everywhere we went he pull you to go home, or wouldn't want to get out of the car, he wanted to hide so got a 1 to 1 trainer he tried everything he was highly trained after the trainer but he couldn't fix his nervouse aggressive towards people he wouldn't take food when out in public so using food didn't work everything was tried and tested to get him to gain trust in other people and enjoy going out, as he got older he lunge at people to keep people away he wore a muzzle everywhere even in his own garden he wouldn't poo or wee only in his own garden as he wouldn't put himself in a vulnerable position ,he hated going out, his tail between his legs but he was fantastic with us so loving, highly trained but I couldn't have anyone in the house with him,even my grandchildren. I would lock him out. or lock him in when they were outside
I have a walkway where I live and it was getting harder and harder to get him out but keep him from biting anyone my son and his girlfriend was staying with us and he went to bite her face but luckly he had his muzzle on
he was the most loving dog to us and the most beautiful dog and I loved him to bits, I could do anything with him.
but I had a tiking time bomb and it was getting harder and harder.we couldn't leave him with anyone and no one other than us could get near him, unless they know how to handle a nervous aggressive dog. if no one came and we saw no one it was fine.
it was so hard making that decision, he was my beautful dog and I loved him with all my heart, I got him and I understood him I still feel as if I have let him down
cassie came as a puppy of 8 weeks from a dog warden who knew about snowy and who had also adviced me that snowy was a ticking time bomb. cassie loves people, children and other dogs also cats we have no issues with cassie other than she is over loved, and for a while lived in snowys shadow but she doesn't now
and when snowy got pts, I had no interest in getting another dog at all, the pain and loss was too great but I came in from doing the horses and cassie was meeting me in the garden. my family went and got her from the dog warden without me knowing.

I have the freedon harness coming it might come today, I ordered it the same time as the walk in sync harness. I am so happy with the walk in sync harness I feel I have no interest in trying out the freedom harness now, but I will just to see how it works. and will try to do a video on it, there are more videos out there on the freedom, not many on the walk in sync
but I really like the walk in sync
my son tried cassie walk in sync on his dog last night and he was very impressed with it too, he wants one now
