well we've just got back in i dont no about tyne but im nakered!! ROFL i guess ive just got to get my positive head back on his classes start on the 5th march so hopefully the trainer can give me some advice after the class. on the walk he met some cows which he couldnt take his eyes off but calmly walked away which i was pleased with as a few months ago id have had a fight on with him! even the hubby could see how well behaved he was as its usually just me who walks him 1 2 1. im going to have a think and put together a plan of action and try to stick to it. hopefully fingers crossed toes etc it'l start to work and can get back to the happy state we were at until a couple of days ago. thankyou guys 4 everything

HI KIRSTIE I NO JUST HOW YOU FEEL LOVE. I AM GOING THROUGH THE SAME THING WITH SAFFIE I CAGE HER AND SHE GETS OUT BUT SHE HAS NEVER DESTROYED ANYTHING. SO I HAVE GONE BACK TO BASICS. SAFFIE IS VERY FEARFUL AND ITS BEEN VERY HARD AND TRYING. I AM TRYING TO BRING HER CONFIDENCE OUT BY PLAY WHICH HAS BEEN HARD SO I GIVE HER LOTS OF TREATS AND PRAISE. PRAISE TO A STAFFIE IS NOTHING SHORT OF GLORIOUS. I HAD SAFFIE DUMPED ON US. WE DID,NT WONT HER AS WE ALREADY HAD TWO BUT COULD NOT PART WITH HER. SO I NO HOW YOU FEEL. I NO YOU HAVE TRYED HARD WITH HIM AND IT IS A TRYING TIME BUT IT WILL COME I'M SURE. I WISH YOU LUCK HUN.XXX

well ive just got back in from a 3 hour walk n hes still full of beans whereas im ready to drop lol. we had a visitor 2day and he was caged and he didnt escape so my idea with the coupling has kept him in 4 now! he really doesnt like the halti he wears to walk bless him he ended up making his nose bleed from rubbing it on the grass trying to get it off. his nose at the min is black n not a pink/white colour lol

i dont like haltis but the harness is a good idea the one buffy has you have more control over the dog as they cannot pull against you with it if you look under interesting items for sale you will see her she pulled like a choo choo train , with the advice of sandi we used a gentle leader for a short while much nicer than the halti in my opinion , then we progressed to this harness
she walks lovely now yes she still pulls or trys to for first few minutes but soon realises she cant do much

these harness's are for look only and a lot of people say how their dog pulls with them , they are made for dogs that have learnt allready to walk nicley really

i know when i enroled him in the classes the trainer said to me dont use harnesses to bring him to use head sets i e haltis or his collar i dont see why i cant use a harness with him but i thought with the 1 he has it causes more problems than enough really

I wouldnt use the leather staffie harness get something like the ezydog one it gives you more control over their chest so they can pull away so much.

Daisy used to be bad but all I do and you need to do it when you have the time lol every time she pulled I would stop and wait. She soon got the message.



Or this type which daisy has.



I am afraid its a case of your will has to be stronger than his and you have to keep at the stop so his lead goes taught and before you move off get him by the side of you, then off you go again. Daisy starts off at a gallop but I get her to heal then get her to walk nicely she doesnt have to walk by the side of me just not pulling.

She loves to explore as we go so will sniff and wander but on a loose lead.

Yea the classes that both my dogs went to didnt want them on harnesses because they want the dog to be walking nicely on lead and if they do it on the lead then they will on anything.

The halti lead is fine but I dont like anything that goes over their faces can you imagine what it would feel like if you had something over your nose and under your chin.

thanks hun. i know i wouldnt really like it but compared to the carry on with the leather 1 it was bliss however he still pulls with it i think il have a look on ebay and see if theres any on there. i must admit with rocky he doesnt need it anymore he only used it for about 5 month n now he walks great with it. for our taz we got a harness that pulled tight under their front legs if they pulled but i cant find any now must admit its about 7 years ago i got it. stoped our taz from pullin like a train.
