We decided to buy Rocco a harness in yellow that states anxious on it - I am so tired of other people allowing their dog to simply wander over without asking or thinking it is ok to walk past with their dogs off lead - when clearly mine are on lead.

I just hope that common sense will kick in when they see the harness - only time will tell.

It should arrive by the weekend, so I shall take pics and let you know what the outcome has been to date.

On Sunday we went to Hornsea and so many people had their dog off lead in a controlled 'keep your dog on lead' zone - they should fine them on the spot - why do this when they have the whole beach to let their dog run freely on?? scratch

Whinge over - I will update asap bounce bounce hoping for a positive outcome

I've seen collars and leads which I have considered for Buddy but not seen an harness...I hate it when people have 2 - 3 dogs off lead and they go in all different directions surrounding you...we have a field close by so get dogs off lead regularly...unfortunately Buddy is quite a nervous dog... it will be interesting to know if anyone takes any notice when you are out with Rocco xx

I have not seen the harness before either Wendy

It is suppose to arrive today - so he can start wearing it tomorrow - I will still walk him on his lead and he tends to pull like a train when you clip the lead to the harness!! Little Monkey

Rocco is a very nervous dog which sets him off in situations like that.

We are going to try Hornsea again at the weekend with the harness and just see if anyone takes any notice

I will keep you all posted xx

Hi

The harness has arrived - I must say the quality is really good and it has reflective edging so will be great for darker morning and evening walkies.

The wording - Keep Away - Anxious has also been sewn onto the harness so it wont peel or rub off.

We are using the harness this weekend - so I am really hoping it works and that people see the woridng and stop their dogs from approaching off lead

Hope it works xx

Rocco seems to love it too

Very true Martin - it so bloody frustrating though - if people only asked if they could approach.

It's when a dog runs at him - he simply gets over protective - when he was a pup he was attacked so now he simply just gets anxious when a dog/s run at him xx

They never do though Suzie, as Martin says they are usually miles away when the dogs are running free.

We don't have this issue when we walk with buddy, as soon as people see he is muzzled they walk away
