Easy Walk Harness Giveaway

I usually don't post my professional blog posts here, but I wanted to give everyone a chance to enter the giveaway....its at the bottom of the review...enjoy and good luck!
I’ve made no secret about the fast that a few months ago my husband and I adopted a dog.  I’ve also made no secret about the fact that we’ve had our challenges.  One of those challenges was learning to walk on a leash without pulling.  Roxy has more energy than we know what to do with.  When she gets out of the car to go on a hike or run, she’s off as if there was a rocket pulling her.
I had looked for miracle cures and I won’t tell you all that I tried, but let’s just say I have a drawer full of leashes and none of them worked.  I wasn’t expecting a miracle when I put on the Gentle Leader, however, I got one.
I will admit she fussed a little when I first put it on.  However, I gave her a treat and she stopped after that.  We started walking and immediately she realized that she could no longer walk in front of me.  Again, she gave me a little fuss and tried to get out of the system.  However, I corrected her and gave her another treat and from then on, we were just fine.
So after six other leash systems, and over six weeks of walking together, it took ten minutes with the Gentle Leader to make my dog walk perfectly.  She doesn’t pull at all anymore!  We can hike, run or walk together and she follows my movement and my pace.  So, if you’re have a new puppy or an older dog that pulls, get the Gentle Leader first.
A little bit about the technical side of the Gentle Leader.  The neck strap and nose loop are fully adjustable.  You can use without a leash if you want.  Your dog can wear this up to 16 hours a day.  (Although I don’t have my dog in this for very long, she calms down as soon as I put it on her.)
I also want to talk about dogs getting out of devices like this.  My dog managed to (very quickly) her herself out of the other similar devise.  It was easy for her and she simply looked up at me as if to say “Nice try.”  She can’t get out of this one AND it seems more comfortable for her.
Something I loved about the Gentle Leader was that it came with a very comprehensive instruction booklet and a training DVD!  Although it worked great before I went through the material, it worked even better after I did!
You can order a Gentle Leader by visiting Premier’s website:
