Best Dog Harness To Stop Pulling

Best Dog Harness To Stop Pulling

There are two types of dog owners in this world: 1) dog owners excited to go on walks with their dogs, and 2) dog owners who want to be excited to go on walks. 

Who falls into that latter group?

Well, tell us if this sounds like you: You get home from a long day at work and need to take your dog for a walk. You call them over to you, you gear them up with a leash, head out the door, and things are fine for maybe a solid 10 minutes before your dog sees a squirrel. They start pulling hard and your joints get sore.

That’s what we mean by dog owners who want to get excited to go on walks, but never get the chance. 

So if your dog is pulling on you during walks, how can we make this a more pleasant experience for you?

We’ll tell you: try a Joyride Harness.

The design of the harness and distribution of materials is key to helping your dog stop pulling on walks. Customers from Joyride Harness are huge fans of the no-pull technology, having seen immediate results or improved results over time. 

Are sizes available for my dog?

Joyride Harness offers harnesses from XS to 2XL. You can use our "By Weight" size chart or you can use our "By Girth" size chart. When you receive your harness in the mail, the first thing you'll do is put it on your dog, buckling one strap behind their front legs (under their chest) and using the velcro strap across the front of the dog's chest. You'll then turn your focus to the adjustment straps. The durable mesh design of the harness allows you to tighten the straps at the adjustable points to mold to a perfect fit of your dog.

In the case that you got the wrong size harness for your dog, exchanges are FREE (for U.S./domestic only). You can find more information on exchanges at this link.

This dog harness is perfect for all sorts of dogs: rescue dogs, agility dogs, guide dogs, watchdogs, dogs that might run after a squirrel and you need a handle to hold them back. The design of the dog harness relies on a proper fit or barely snug fit to ensure the dog's comfort and restrict them from making a great escape.

What are the other benefits to this harness?

  • Durable quality that is machine-wash safe
  • No pressure around the dog's neck, minimizing the risks of tracheal collapse
  • Secure buckle
  • Better control of pullers (no-pull dog harness)
  • Works great with 2-in-1 Leash & Seatbelt Combo for car rides
  • Three rings for different leash and seatbelt attachment points
  • Can still be worn with a dog collar
  • Lightweight but with plenty of padding
  • Breathable mesh for long walks
  • Reflective straps and stitching for night visibility

But what's the verdict with dog parents?

We're sharing with you real Joyride Harness customer testimonials explaining why this harness is the best harness for dogs who pull.

Erin L. -  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

“I am happy to report a dramatic decrease in pulling on the leash since using this harness.”

Colleen L. -  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

“Archie looks so handsome in his new harness. It’s so easy to put on and keeps him from pulling. With Archie’s old harness I had to lift his front legs to slide through a loop but sometimes he would move just right and yelp. This harness I don’t have to lift his legs. Just slip over his head and buckle underneath. Would highly recommend this harness.”

Elizabeth M. -  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

“I searched for many hours over several weeks for a harness with some bulk that would reign in our two mischievous beagle mixes. We have the thin strap type but I dreaded the walk each evening because of the pulling. Seeing a squirrel they would nearly yank my arm out of the socket. 

Walking became a chore instead of something I looked forward to doing. I began my search for a harness with thick straps and substanial material on their backs, but everything I found was too small for their girth until I found the joyride harness. 

Both now walk calmly with minimal pulling and obey commands. This harness has made all the difference. If you are hesitating buying it, don't. If you need to doublecheck the size call them with the girth measurement. Both of our dogs are 40 lbs, between Medium and Large, so I called and gave them the girth measurement. The representative said Medium and they fit perfectly. They are truly fantastic.”

“My dog Selah is a 6 yr old cream golden /yellow lab mix. He is my best friend (which I know is such a cliché) Sometimes I take him to work with me and we also go for walks on local trails everyday when the weather is nice. He gets so excited that pulling has been a problem and he needed a new harness. His old one had no padding and was chafing. The Joyride Harnass came highly recommended so we gave it a try. With his new Joyride Harnass on he does not pull and tug on the leash. He is more manageable when he is sniffing out critters and "visiting". He also looks so snappy in his new purple Joyride Harness!”

Melissa A. -  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

“Great! These are so easy to put on and take off and give me more control of my dogs. I walk two 50+ pound dogs so I need all the help I can get. It definitely helps with their pulling too!”
