Okay great! Now let's look at the available options, listed below from light to heavy duty.
Best for small to medium sized dogs. Not recommended for large dogs or dogs that pull like crazy!
Best for dogs over 25lbs and dogs who are semi-obedient.
Best for dog over 35lbs or taller than 12" at the shoulders. Works well with large dogs or dogs that pull.
Best for Medium to Giant dogs. The Springer is the safest option for dogs that pull like crazy.
Finally, your dog needs to wear a properly fitted body harness. Choke chains, head collars or neck collars are dangerous and put to much pressure on the dog's throat & neck.
