husky-no-pull-harnesses




Huskies are selectively bred for pulling in harness, this excessive pulling sometimes causes neck damages. 

However, since huskies are bred for pulling, you will need a no pull harness to do you that trick normal harnesses lack.

Moreover, the most common problem with a normal harness is that they turn to tighten if the dog still pulls and can choke the dog a little. 

Quite often this excessive pulling is a sign your dog isn’t comfortable with the harness you got. 

Dog collars come in different sizes with the sole purpose of putting you in the driving position. 

You will find lots of different opinions about these harnesses I shall list. Most are that they give amazing results and I have to say that was my experience.

So then what could be done about this problem, here enters these life savers, my list of 15+ Best No Pull Harnesses for a leash pulling husky.

These harnesses are somewhat chew-proof too.  

If you like the looks of these leashes then just make sure that you choose the right size for your dog and you will be fine.


Leash Pulling Husky



#1. Gentle leader head collar 


With most collars and harnesses, the point of attachment is at the neck or shoulders but with the gentle leader, it's at the muzzle. 

By moving it forward on the dog, you get a greater advantage in terms of leverage. 

If the dog starts to pull away, it has no choice but to turn its head back towards you. 

The gentle leader is so much better for your husky; this is a great harness that will stop your husky from pulling and jumping a lot. 

It is small and I feel like it’s much easier to put on.


#2. Petsafe Easy Walk Harness


The most important feature of this no pull harness is that it attaches in the front, so when your dog pulls, the harness pulls across the breastbone/upper front legs making it really hard for them to walk forward. 

I recommend getting two sizes and seeing which fits best. Also watch the video on how to fit it for more informative.





#3. Hounds Design Freedom No-Pull Dog Harness & Leash (Freedom harness)


It’s similar to an Easy Walk but it has two attachment points, one in the front and one on the back (it also comes with a special double clasped leash) - use one for better control or both for even better control. 

An added bonus is that the strap that goes around the dog’s chest is velvet lined which is nice if you have a dog with short hair/sensitive skin. 

There's a special leash that it comes with that connects to both D-rings, giving you more control of your pup when he/she pulls. 

Like any harness, just make sure it's fitted properly.

#4. Halti Head collar


This is a a no pull harness that goes over the dogs head and has a figure of eight loop, the large loop goes around the dog’s neck and a smaller loop goes over the dog’s nose and sits around the dog’s muzzle. 

The point with this type of harness is that it is the dog’s head which is now the point where the pulling force materializes rather than the neck and shoulders, which as you might imagine is the perfect location for the dog to pull from, a bit like a husky pulling a ski sled.

Now when the dog pulls it just turns the head and your dog wouldn’t generate any force at all. 

Also it is much easier to direct the dog because with a little gentle pulling of the leash you could point your dogs head in the right direction.

One word of warning however, with this type of harness is that you cannot snap back on it like you might with a normal harness because you could actually hurt your dog, this harness is used as a gentle restraint because that is all that is required.


#5. KONG Comfort Dog Harness

This one has a mesh padding inside which makes it breathable. 

It is also made of quality material that is fully adjustable and I would suggest you take it off every night and put it back on in the mornings so that your dog can have a break from wearing it all day. 


#6. Gundog halter 

This is both a lead and collar combine, it has a slip lead action that allows the lead to snug around the dog’s neck and muzzle with a small friction washer or similar that slips in behind the loop to stop it going slack again. 


#7. Ruffwear Front Range harness


This one gives you the option to clip on the back, it’s secure, and it has a cute pocket for a tag.

It’s helpful in training them to walk. If your dog pulls, it will make your dog’s body turn towards you. 

Eventually, the dog will learn not to pull to prevent this. The padded Ruffwear fits better and will slow down your dog’s pulling.


#8. Perfect Fit Modular Harness


If you have a big dog, you will definitely want a harness that clips at the front like this one it fits well and is comfortable. 

If you're clipped on the back it gives them the most comfort and power to pull as hard as they want so don’t. 

It's absolutely on the pricey side but it comes in three pieces so you can get it just right. 

#9. SPORN no pull mesh harness


This harness is made of nylon and mesh material. 

The purpose of the nylon mesh material is to provide your dog with optimum comfort especially at the chest and this product also stretch natural with respect to the dogs natural movements. 

The padding at the chest is design to prevent your dog from choking when tight. This is an ideal product if you’ve got a medium dog. 

Always make sure you remove this harness from the dog after use and do not use it as a tie or car harness.  


#10. The x back harness 


This harness is quite commonly seen on pictures with huskies and sled. 

This harness is very durable and resistant to icing that makes it suitable for pulling sport; the x back harness will work great. 

You can also use it for your regular works and hiking with your Husky too. This harness is available in 6 sizes. 

#11. SENSE-ation harness

It is good for positive reinforcement during dog training. The O-ring on the chest are reinforce with steel plate to make it more durable. 

This no pull harness will absolutely stop your dog from pulling without choking.

Conclusion 


Though these harnesses are term no pull, they actually don't completely eliminate pulling all on its own, but it brings the pulling down. Make sure your dog uses this great product with your supervision.   

I will also advise against the body harnesses for puppies until they are fully grown, as it can mess with their shoulders. Hope this article was helpful!
