We tried all different kinds of contraptions. Her least favorite (but maybe my favorite) was the front leading harness. Once that thing went on her, she pretty much refused to walk. She stopped, then laid down. And the face she gave me, it looked like I had just broken her little heart. I couldn't keep it after that, so it went back to the store. On the bright side, it did stop the pulling.

I have been researching collars/harnesses relentlessly ever since she came home with us and have never found one that meets our needs. I am hoping the Sporn Halter will do the trick.
Based on the research I've done, the Sporn Halter helps with pulling. And the way it is shaped, it won't hit her cute little balding chest. Also, it has padded-like arm pieces so her little pits won't get chafed.
It should be arriving in the mail today and I'll report on its effectiveness after we've tested it out some. My hopes are high for this one!
See the Sporn Halter!
