attachment points provide walking options. Front leash attachment reduces leash
pulling, while the back attachment is ideal for more traditional use. For more control,

Harness, allowing safe and effective redirection of leash pulling.

leash to the two D-Rings on the back of the
harness. If your dog typically pulls on the
leash, he will likely continue to do so because
of the “opposition reflex”. Opposition reflex

Although the harness may have an immediate
impact on your dog’s pulling habits and it may be more manageable to walk him,
he may still pull some while wearing it. The harness is designed to redirect your dog
from pulling and help achieve a loose leash walk. The front-chest leash attachment
reduces pulling by steering your dog to the side and redirects his attention towards
you. In addition, the Martingale Loop provides extra leverage for easy, relaxed control.
Going for a Jog or Run
The No Pull Step-In Harness is a great harness for everyday use, including running or
jogging. However, proper fit of the harness is essential to the overall comfort of your
dog. Be sure to fit the harness according the fitting instructions. If your dog begins to
chafe, stop using the harness and consult your veterinarian.
Tips & Maintenance
- We suggest using only the back leash attachment when running. A leash attached
- to the center chest strap during running could accidentally trip your dog.
- Check the harness regularly, especially on growing dogs. Over time and after
- multiple uses the harness may stretch or adjust.
- For more control, use with the Premier Pet™ Multi-Functional Leash. This versatile,
- double-ended leash includes two leash snaps that attach to the front and back of
- the No Pull Step-In Harness, allowing safe and effective redirection of leash pulling.
- Do not leave your dog unattended while wearing the harness.
- When not in use, safely store the harness.
- We don’t recommend using a retractable leash with the no pull function, as the
- constant tension could encourage the dog to pull.
- Examine the harness for signs of chewing, fraying or damage
