I use a harness on Nikki too. I think my plan will be to walk the pup on her own until she's pretty good and then I'll alternate. Sometimes 2 together sometimes one on one. Hopeful within a year I can walk the three of them together..

I walk both of mine together all the time. I used an easy walk harness that attaches to the chest area which makes them pull to the side when they pull. Now I can walk them with a regular collar and they do great. I hope to pick up my bike soon to start biking with them. I will do one at a time there until I am better at it.

I had tried several types of harnesses but this one is by far the best. I get compliments all the time about how well they walk with me.

Dogs pull in standard harnesses because it applies pressure and makes them feel like they're doing a good job and like they should keep doing it.

Stopping when they pull and or turning around and going in the entirely opposite direction will help your pup learn not to pull AND that you are in control and they need to pay attention to you at all times. When they're pulling, they're ignoring.

Training was probably the best thing we've ever invested in for our two boxer babies. They heel right next to me, stop and sit when I stop, one on my left one on my right.

Good luck!

Yeah the Sensable harness is a front clip and he does still pull with it on...but yeah we have been practicing some foundations where he watches me, C/T stands by my side C/T, walks by my side while watching me C/T, jogs by my side while watching me C/T, lol I learned that he can't eat and walk at the same time though and occasionally he will choke on his treat after we begin walking again, which then makes a low rate of reinforcement which makes the game much less fun and far less rewarding. *sigh*
