Next loop the leash around the waist so when they pull the leash tightens around the belly first.

It really works with Lily. I'm betting it might even work better on a boy dog. Little dogs are prone to collapsed tracheas so I bought Lily a harness that lets her pull even harder. The looped leash will cause her to walk a little sideways when she is excited, but her throat is safe.
Miya is a Husky, and talk about sled pulling, she could do it. However, all we have to do is say, "Heel," and she is by the left side.

Moss would come before roots in this part of the U.S. I have to get out soon, there are mountains to cross since we can't drive thru California. The monkey laws are insane there.

The brat didn't do that well but yesterday was so rainy we really didn't get a chance to work him hard like we normally do so he was full of energy. But...he passed.

Yeah Zeus! I hope you got a special treat for graduation.
