Might Paw is here to save the day

Not that I ever PULL, but Mama ordered me a new Mighty Paw Harness from Amazon. It has front hook to train not to pull, top hook for walking fast or running and that thing in the middle is a Grab 

The Dog Handle for dogs who might lay down and refuse to move.

The leash has a 8 foot part and a short handle attached for making dogs walk where they should.
Most of the time I walk like I should, but on occasion I have been known to 
lean down, butt in air, while saying nope, i am not leaving the smelly stuff, put my chest on the ground and collapse.
I weigh 75 pounds! Nuff Said!

Mama is training daddy to say Come! in a firm voice but he isn't as well trained as I am, and yells get up and some other stuff i can't repeat.

Now with the handle he can MAKE me get up. without words.
Mama uses Words! and Venison Treats
and I hear her mumble, why are men so stubborn? I wonder if I am stubborn?

It took the word Come several times and about 20 treats to get me to leave the raccoon.
Butt! as you can see in the video below, I don't even pull when I see ducks.
Cats and Coons make me pull. We pass a lot of those.
Thus the new harness.

The harness is totally neat. It has everything! Wish I could see a butt in the air photo. You have the most gorgeous voice.

BB, you wear that new harness with panache, dear boy. May it bring relief to your daddy and a little less trouble to you. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xx

Hi BB,

You are a good dog and well behaved. Walking good with your new harness. I love the photos and the videos. Have a happy day!

Ella said...

BB I missed you! Nice to see you again!
Big hug to you!

That's what Zeus was wearing! When I first spotted him galloping towards me (sans leash or human) I was able to maneuver him using that grab thingy. Never saw one before or since -- until now. Love the videos, and hearing your voice again!

Sandee said...

We had a harness like that for Little Bit. She would choke herself because of all the pulling. Works wonderfully.

Loved the videos. Good jog.

Have a woof woof day. My best to your peeps. ♥

You look quite handsome in your new no-pull harness!

Brian said...

That is a really good thing especially since treats are involved!

The scotties are both excellent at that 'anvil' move....suddenly deciding not to go anywhere and pulling HER shoulder out of socket. We think Dui could do with a handle. He goes crazy when he sees another dog, and he's on the lead.

Your a male - so you have to be a bit stubborn.

Don't you look smart? You did very well on your new no-pull harness :)

I have a front hook harness too, but yours is nicer. I almost never pull when I am wearing it on walks. Xena had one, but Mom ended up returning it, choosing to say it was defective rather than admit she couldn't train my sister to not pull, BOL! Lucy
