I am looking for a dog harness the type used by Guide Dogs with the stiff bar to hold. Does anyone know where I can obtain one of these? I am getting a Labrador cross Collie in 2 weeks and want to train her to walk properly. I am asking for this type of harness as I have trouble with my back and have heard they are better than a standard lead.
Thanks Jason
The problem here is that all guide dogs are hand picked. For their calm nature.
They are fully trained to walk on those leads.
So I guess what ever lead you use it is in the training. If a dog is trained to walk to heal from young ..then you should have no trouble.
Good luck.
Pat.

Funny you mention calm nature. We have the choice of 2 bitches. 1 is quite lively and the other quiet. Do you know from experience which one would be best to go for. I don't know if I am wrong but I was told never to go for the quiet one???
Thanks once again Jason

Hi Jason,
I always have let the dog pick me.
When I went to pick my Labrador there were 4 black. One was taken that left three.
Two of them just wanted each other, the other one kept coming back to me. So she was the one I had.
I guess she was the quiet one..and she is lovely. Pat.
