The harness for dogs I have to agree with as well. Soooo much better than them pulling around their neck.

My training mentor says reward average or better as the dog gets more understanding of their job their average will get better.
I do the same as mindy'smum.
Your mentor wouldn't be Susan Garrett by any chance would it?
I love her :)
