We have used these harnesses with our greyhounds for years. They provide excellent control and prevent them from slipping out of a collar. We would highly recommend them!

Advantages: Excellent control, secure, works well with any dog with neck problems (one of our greyhounds has a disk problem in her neck). They are extremely easy to put on!

Disadvantages: None!

We had tried other anti-pulling harnesses and frankly I did not think this one would work either.

I was wrong. On the first walk, one of our champion pullers went from dislocating our shoulder to a slack lead walker. This product works!

The short lead length, I found very handy. When you have a puller, you don't really want a long leash. With this double leash attachment, your dog is right there by your side.

Advantages: The dual leash attachment is the key.

This harness, some patience, and positive enforcement will make your dog a slack lead walker too.

Disadvantages: It does take some time to initially adjust the harness. If your dog is especially squirmy, it helps to have two people. But once adjusted, putting on this harness is a simple one person job.

I ordered the Freedom No pull harness and leash set for my 5 year old very Pulling Great Dane. The minute I put this on her she was by my side and walked like a well behaved girl. I must say it was the best money spent. Can't wait to order another for my boy.

Advantages: Does exactly what they say.

We ordered our first harness for a greyhound some six years back - we were nervous about a friend whose hound had slipped out of his collar. Our boy adapted very quickly to the leashpoint between his shoulders. When we got our second hound, we quickly learned that she pulled and pulled and pulled with a leash attached to her collar - so we got her a harness too. Very quickly, she stopped pulling, and was a lot happier on walks. We haven't looked back, and have been thrilled with them.

Advantages: Easy to put on; easy to train a dog to "nose into;" easy to adjust and fit especially with a deep-chested dog; velvet underband prevents chafing.

Disadvantages: None!

Love the harness. It made such a difference to our wolfhound x. He still pulls a bit but comparatively he is now so easy to walk.

All our foster kids are trained in the harness and we have found that when/if they go back to a collar there are few problems.

Advantages: Makes walking the dogs a pleasure rather than a chore. Lots of beautiful colors to choose from.

Disadvantages: None - other than deciding what color to buy - I want them all.

Having only had Greyhounds who were always well behaved walking I never had the chance to use a harness until my rescue Great Dane came into my life, gorgeous bundle of fun but oh so big and strong, my husband was the only one who could walk her, she was way too strong for me. I bought a no-pull harness for her in the hope I could one day walk her after she had been trained not to pull.
I didn't have to worry about training, the first time we used the harness on her she walked beautifully, no pulling or tugging & walked right next to us instead of pulling out our shoulders, she is such a delight to walk now, I can walk her no problem even with her strength she is now very easy to control. I absolutely love it, thank you for such a great product in great colours (instead of boring black we see everywhere), she loves it as much as I do.

I purchased two of these- one for my semi-tractor trailer truck of an AmStaff & one for my chocolate boy. They're amazing! Bess walks nicely by my side, no pulling! Finn has always walked nicely, but the bright orange is fabulous when we hike through the woods.

Advantages: No chafing under the front legs. I tried the Easy-Walk and it rubbed Bess raw behind her front legs. The soft velour is wonderful.

Disadvantages: None! Sturdy and well made!

Love this harness and the beautiful color. I had one from 7 years ago and they last a long time (have two dogs).

Advantages: The velvet is soft and the no pull techniques really work on my two giant Old English Sheepdogs that could pull a semi-truck if they wanted.

I really love this harness because it fits my Boxer mix perfectly. I love how it is adjustable & easy to put on. I highly recommend buying the matching training leash, you will have the ultimate control with it.

Advantages: - The matching training leash gives you the ultimate control. I connect it to the harness & the other clip to the collar. Highly recommend.

- No chafing due to the soft velevet piece.

Disadvantages: - This harness will not train your dog to heel. You still have to do the actual training. (This should be a given, but some people think that they don't have to do the actual training)

As a dog trainer, this harness is the number one product that I recommend my students. It is really suitable for my force-free training philosophy and makes the behavior modification process easier.

I am using and recommending Freedom No-Pull Harness for many years.

Advantages: Easy to put on.
Easy to fit. No problem if fitted properly.
The velvet chest strap is friendly with the dog's sensitive skin.
Since the design is smart the front strap doesn't get loose and slip down unlike the other front-clip harnesses by other brands.
Made from high quality material, durable.

Disadvantages: I wish there were also tweener sizes.
For a dog who is deep chested but not so wide in front I had really trouble with the sizes.

Since the dog's chest measure was 29"
I tried the L size harness: Chest strap fit perfectly but even I adjusted the front strap as smaller as possible it was still loose.

I tried the M size harness: Front strap fit perfectly, however, it was impossible to buckle the chest strap.

Result: I had to cut and re-sew the front strap of the L size harness. So the originality and durability of the product is broken.

***NOTE from 2HD: We are always happy to customize a harness for you so that we can ensure that the straps are sewn in securely, etc. Please feel free to contact us any time you have any issues!***

This customer purchased the item at our site.
I've purchased a few different brands of harnesses for what I call my hard to fit dog, and sadly none of them worked out. I decided to try this harness because I saw that one of my local holistic pet stores was going to start carrying them and the reviews on this harness were all great. I am so happy I decided to try this!! My dog is a German Shepherd/Collie mix crossed with a Keeshond mix that has Boxer. She looks like a small German Shepherd but her body is long like the Collie and she has that barrel chest like the Boxer does. This harness fits her like a glove and I have so much control on the walk. I would encourage anyone with a hard to fit dog to invest in this harness because it works!

Advantages: Fits great and easy to put on!

I just wanted to say how thrilled I am with the 'Freedom No-Pull Harness.' My Borzoi 'Lancie' hurt his neck by lunging forward with a regular collar and Flexi-lead (which I will never use with him again.) By Doctor's orders I was to use a harness for Lancie and discovered the 'Freedom No-Pull Harness.' What a marvelous invention. 'Lancie' loves it and is my closer companion now as we walk safely and in control together. Thank You 2 Hounds Design.

Advantages: Safety and Control are the advantages of the 'Freedom No Pull Harness.'

Disadvantages: There are no disadvantages as the 'Freedom No Pull Harness' does the job it was intended and designed to do.

I had used a harness on my lil' pit in the past, resulting only in frustration. So I was skeptical about trying this product. I'm glad to say my fears were baseless. This is the best purchase I have ever made for my dog.
When using a martingale neck collar, my dog would become frantic and obstinate. She would dart all over, sniffing everything, bark at other dogs. I'm sad to say I couldn't control her.
But with this harness, she is not frantic. She doesn't freak out at any moving object. If she tries to pull or bark, I can easily correct her...and she listens.
As other customers have said, the harness isn't a magic bullet, but it is a gentle and comfortable way to help correct the dog.

Advantages: Velvet liner protects against chafing, easy to put on/adjust. I love that there is a buckle on each side!

Disadvantages: Umm...none.

We have a 150 pound male bullmastiff whom we trained using another brand of no-pull harness. It worked, but left patches of exposed skin in the spots where the harness rubbed. We switched to the Freedom No Pull and voila -- problem gone. My dog is very much under control using the Freedom, and now he keeps all his fur too. Woo hoo!

Advantages: Extremely well made and effective.

Disadvantages: None at all. We love 2 Hounds Design!

This product is amazing. The transformation was instantaneous--my dog was a very heavy puller; walking him required all of my arm strength and was as frustrating for my dog as it was for me. Just by putting this harness on my dog, I can now walk him with one finger holding the leash, and I think our dog is just as happy about it as I am.

Advantages: Instantaneous transformation; the dog appears to be very comfortable and walking him is a breeze.

Disadvantages: The fit of the harness is a little awkward when using the front clip instead of the back one.

Freedom Harness was recommended by our vet and we credit it with helping our dog learn to walk very nicely on a loose leash.

Advantages: Easy to use, not bulky.
Even though we no longer have problems with pulling, we love being able to double up the leash in crowded situations when it helps to keep him close.

Disadvantages: I'd LOVE if the Freedom Harness were updated with a reflective stitching for a bit of added safety.

I have 2 Great Danes and have been using the no-pull harness for a couple of years. I love them.

Advantages: I like the fact that nothing is pulling around the neck. They quickly learned how to walk with the harness

Disadvantages: none

The fit of this harness is better than anything I have ever tried. I am ordering a replacement for one that my dog managed to escape from when she was on her own walkabout… I am actually relieved that she was able to get out of it as I suspect she was trapped in thick briars. I left it on her because of the bright orange color. She resembles a coyote, and I don't want anyone mistaking her for one! And, because she blends into the woods, I am able to spot her more easily. That said, this harness is really best used on leash, and not left on a dog at other times. I typically only attach to the top ring, but notice great improvement in her manners when I clip to front and top. Thank you for this genius design, and quality craftsmanship.

Advantages: Fit, Color, Ability to control

We got this for our very pull-y husky after trying and being disappointed by the Gentle Leader. Within the first walk we noticed a huge improvement in our dog's behavior. While he still has pulling issues, he now understands, thanks to the control loop on the back, the connection between him pulling the leash too taut and the walk momentarily stopping. This is a great product for pullers!

Advantages: Works as advertised, dog adjusted to it quickly

Disadvantages: none
