Thunder Leash

Saw the commercial on TV today. It claims to be a leash that will stop pulling on a walk by using the similar method as the Thunder Shirt.

Anyone have one? Does it work/not work?

What's the scoop?

If I put something like that on my boy, the tighter it got the crazier he would get to get out of it.

If a dog just likes to pull, sure maybe. For a high drive dog, no way. For a drivey bulldog, oh heck no!


My $.02 anyway.

I haven't seen that one yet. I'm sure it may work for some dogs, but I personally wouldn't waste the money. Nothing will be a magical fix like some people are hoping for. I my self just used a slip lead positioned at the top of the neck right behind the ears to leash train my last 3 dogs. It helps to stay calm and relaxed (including the arm holding the leash) and right when the dog pulls give a quick correction pull to the side, then go right back to relaxed. I find that if you just pull back with a constant pressure they will only pull more. If the corrections are not phasing the dog you can try stopping dead in your tracks as soon as the dog pulls, and wait till he/she stops pulling before you continue walking. You will probably have to do this many times, but with consistency the dog will eventually get it.

That kind of product wouldn't hold up to a bulldog..

Best method Ive found to stop a power puller is a second leash slip knotted around the waist, when the pulling begins, the second leash gets tightened and lifted, stops em everytime

I like pullers......couldn't imagine having one that didn't! They're just doing what they love to do, and that is go for a hour long WP contest every night That's just me though.

While I fully agree with this, and walk all mine stiff leashed pulling my arm out, there is a time and a place to be cordial. When the pulling on the leash is not wanted, that's where controlling it comes into play.
My Kali dog is set now where if she is in her harness she will pull the blazes out of you on a walk, but in the collar she knows to walk it out...

I don't mind pulling but there is a time and a place for it. For example, my dogs are allowed to pull when we're on the trails or out in the bush. When we're walking around town or on the road, I keep them at a heel. So although I'm fine with pulling in some situations, I do think it's good to teach your dog to heel or loose-leash walk because it will be handy later on.

I think the methods to curb pulling depend on the dog. Piggy is very sensitive and a quick leash correction will put her back into position right away. With Squirt I could correct/yank back to my heart's content and he doesn't even notice, so I had to get creative. I tried all the usual methods and the only thing that worked was carrying a little spray bottle with me and spraying ahead of him if he was starting to pull. He loves water but hates the squirt bottle for some reason. He backs off right away and I don't need to use it anymore.

The only way I can get Camo to not pull right now is one of those stupid head halters. I trust them to stay on about as far as I can throw the state of Texas though, so when I use it, I clip it to the collar in case the dog slips it, I still have him on a lead.

I have gone through clip on the front harnesses, prong collars, countless hours of training, he just wants to pull. I put that head gear on and he walks right by my side. One of these days as he mentally matures some, I'm sure I will get him to the point of HJ's Kali. Collar clip = chill, harness clip = try and run!

I didn't think it was safe for my dog, meaning sturdy enough plus there are many ways to stop pulling. I would try and work on the issue itself and not try and fix to make them do it, I WANT mine to want to walk like a good pooch lol

give this a try brother.. when you collar walk, take a second cheap nylon leash, wrap it around the waist, slip the clip end through the hand loop so it will cinch when pulled on, and every time he goes to pull, tighten and lift up on the waist leash. watch the results

Lol, the head halti works for one of my dogs (Charlie), but for Punk (Pit mix) instead of pulling with his shoulders like a normal dog, he pulls with his hind legs/butt. Lose, lose.

Sorry to get a bit off topic. I have one of those harnesses where my boy's head goes through it and he really doesn't like it at all. I've been looking for alternatives, perhaps a step-in harness like I use for my girl. But I really don't want to use one of those all-nylon ones as they tend to chafe under the leg pits.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks again!

I walked down stairs yesterday and seen the commercial on TV. i instantly thought, yeah right, for a bull? Bwhaha.. No way i would even waste the money. A good Slip works well especially if you start young enough, i like Jeeps idea of the waist thing to, might try it if i ever need to.
