This post is part of the Harness the Love campaign from the Academy for Dog Trainers. Recent research shows that neck collars and harnesses do not cause stress when walking dogs. So if you have a dog that pulls a lot on leash, a front-clip harness is a good choice.

Thank you to everyone who has shared their photos with me.
