Best of all, a front-attaching harness (when used correctly, obviously!) won't be associated with pain as other painful collars do. For instance, with a prong collar, the moment the dog sees a stimulus he wants to meet, such as another dog or a person, the dog will pull. The moment the dog pulls, the metal prongs will sink in the dog's skin causing an unpleasant, uncomfortable and often painful sensation. With time, the dog risks to come to see the trigger (person or other dog) as a predictor of pain, which can lead to more serious behavior problems than the pulling behavior itself!
Jul 6, 2015 - The Sensation Harness
Thank you for all your help sizing the sensation harness for my Westie. He is between sizes and the small you recommended definitely fits him better. He had a Gentle Leader Easy Walk harness but it was too clunky and too heavy for him. Being a terrier, he is strong and can be quite a puller. Your harness is light weight yet definitely encourage "civilized" walking. Best of all, it is very comfortable to wear. Great support and wonderful customer service.
Sensation Harness - Good Dog Goods
Front-Connection™ harnesses are more than no-pull harnesses, they help solve all on-leash problems and enhance companionships. Our unique harness system was inspired by new concepts from horse training that can help you understand your dog. Both dogs and horses have a similar response to sense of touch. They brace against pressure (touch reflex) which is why dogs brace against collars and pull on leashes. With our restraint-free™ methods, dogs feel gentle pressure (sensations) like horses feel a rider's leg pressure. Dogs love this no-force approach!

Just wondering what the difference is between these two harnesses. They seem very similar to me, but I've noticed the sensa-tions is recommended a bit more. If anyone could enlighten me on the difference that would be great!we finally broke down and ordered the sensation harness, and it's been amazing! it clips in the front, but no martingale or anything to pinch. it just works to gently guide her.The biggest issue I was having is he is pretty bull headed and bounces around like a pup... even with the sensation harness on. What would happen, even with the harness fitted properly, is he would pull it down onto his legs when he bolted for something or started bouncing around. This keeps it up and in place on his chest so that when he does do that he is properly redirected to the side stopping the behavior in its tracks. what a great idea ...... there is a lot of real estate between dave's collar and where i suspect this harness will go across his chest..... so i'm thinking that we may need some sort of extension too.....typically, when we pass dogs that APPROACH us face on, or if a dog comes from behind and passes us (not unusual as slow as i am with this gimpy leg again), dave goes absolutely ballistic.....staring, lunging, growling..... i half-way expect for his head to spin and pea-soup to come spewing out of his mouth..... the sensation harness kept him much more grounded and actually, seemed to prevent him from dialing up so high, if that makes sense..... he also seems to pay a little more attention to me when i try to break his stare and focus him on me......
