Update and question about leashes

  1. If they are, maybe a head harness or a front clip harness to reduce pulling might help!

    Could look at making your own with climbing grade d-rings....

    I can't believe how much he's grown and what a handsome boy!
    The head harnesses really aren't recommended for our breed since they can damage the neck when they put them in an unnatural position.

    It does indeed sound like he's pulling too much if he's breaking the hardware so the first goal is to stop getting him to pull, which I know isn't the easiest task.

  4. Good to know! I’ve heard the head harness is ok for other breeds and works but glad to know it’s not good for Doberman’s ! Thank you

    Hi there, thanks!

    Nope no prong collar. I’m just using a normal padded leather collar.

    He doesn’t pull on a regular basis it’s just when he sees a squirrel or another dog that he wants to play with he lunges. And it’s the momentum of the lunge that breaks the hardware.

    A prong collar would solve that. In Australia it isn't illegal to use a prong collar in most states, but it is illegal to import one. There are loop holes though and I managed to buy a prong collar online and it was a game changer! Now there is never any lunging and hauling on the lead, and I only need the prong collar when in a new or exciting situation. :thumbsup2:

    After the 2nd face p!ant with my previous 90 lb. boy, I got a prong collar. A miracle, he got it instantly, and no more lunging.

    We recently purchased a Keepers Collar which covers the prongs which is a nice touch.
