Just wondering if any of you have tried the Sporn Mesh Harness. It is supposed to stop pulling instantly, and very easy to put on. There is nothing around the neck, as it is a step in type. I am looking to replace their Puppia harnesses that they've used for a while now because they are difficult to put on over their heads, and are causing matting behind their front legs.

I have not used the Sporn Mesh No-Pull but would be interested in the opinion of those who have. I use the Sensation harness for my Clumbers when we are in situations where it is difficult for me to keep them from pulling (like PetSmart where they try to get to the bags of food on the lower shelves :)). Buddy is not much of a puller and we use an UpCountry step-in harness for him.

These harnesses are designed to squeeze under the arm pits if the dogs pulls, yeah it'll work, but only because it's uncomfortable if they do. Certainly not suitable for an SM dog.

looks like a similar idea to a 'lupi' harness? Look a bit ugly to me!:lpy:

Have replaced many of these with the SENS_ible harnesses in class. They are quite uncomfortable for a Cavalier and it lifts their shoulders also.

SENSE-ible or SENSE-ation harness works well or some people like the Puppia or up country as well. The SENSE-ation is a little softer under the arms.

If anyone wants a SENSE-ible or SENSE-ation just order from the shop and I will ship it anywhere for you.

If you are in the states best to order from the softouch concepts website.

I initially used a similar no-pull harness that tightened under the arms on Jaspar when he was younger and he was so startled and uneasy in it that I never used it again after the first few times. I didn't like an approach that could make a walk an unhappy event. The front clip harnesses like the Sense-ation are perfect with my dogs including my SM dogs but different harnesses may work best for different dogs. :)

I have the front-clip harnesses for both of my boys. Ollie walks like an angel when he's wearing it....but Winston....is another story! He gets so excited that he can't seem to control himself (not only while walking)! Sometimes he jumps around and a couple times, he has jumped and somehow got a leg out of the harness and then it is so tight that I can't get the leg back through, so I have to take the whole thing off and then it's dangerous....bottom line; I have not found the right no-pull harness for him yet. I would be willing to try just about anything!

Trisha make sure it is a Softouch concepts SENSE-ible or SENSE-ation harness you are using as there are 2 other varieties of front connection harnesses out there. you could order directly from softouch.

If you are using one of these then clip the front connection ring to the D ring on his collar and he wont be able to wiggle out.

:thmbsup: I am very pleased with THE SPORN MESH CONTROL HARNESS. I just bought one for both of them, took them on a walk, and :w*w:what a difference it makes. It is so easy to put on, and there is nothing around their neck. You can adjust the fit on their back (it keeps them from pulling behind their front legs) so its not too snug. I have to say it was a pleasure walking them. :wggle: They were not bothered by it at all, so far it looks like a winner to me.
