  1. Retractable leashes are a no-no before your dog properly understands releasing from pressure and that you are the leader, it’s the beginners lazy way to walk a dog but often teaches the puppy bad habits and just gives them more room to pull you. The Walk In Sync™ Harness and Accu-Grip Leash assist you in setting consistent and clear boundaries for your puppy and providing proper boundaries immediately. All dogs need boundaries to know when to back off pressure.
  2. The proof is in the pudding. Most trainers have no clear idea from their own understanding of how vital it is to teach your puppy from an early age not to pull by allowing the dog to make the correction and not the human. If you correct the dog the dog will continuously wait to be corrected by you rather than correct him/herself. The Walk In Sync™ Harness was developed by an expert dog trainer. Realizing the flaws and thinking inside the box of collars and most harnesses, I began observing what works best for the dog and the human and gets them the safest and quickest results. Most trainers believe you have to correct the dog, I believe you simply have to set up a situation in which you allow the dog to think for him/herself and correct themselves. The Walk In Sync™ Harness helps you help your dog learn to correct their own behavior.
  3. Our sizing is pretty darn accurate but not perfect. Your dog may be a little bit of an in between size as a puppy and as a puppy they will grow into the harness within 3 weeks. Here is an acceptable amount of pull to the side (picture) Here is an unacceptable amount of pull to the side ( picture) You may need to size down one size if your dog is no longer growing or just go with the flow for a week or two while your puppy grows into the harness. Do not anticipate the size of growth of your dog to purchase a harness. Purchase the size that properly fits them now and you will have 15 pounds worth of growth to accommodate you with each size. If you have a small puppy that will grow into a large dog, you will end up purchasing a new harness when they outgrow the first one.
  4. A unique feature our the Walk In Sync™ Harness is that you have the ability to train your dog with the front D ring and then you can attach the leash to the rear O ring for walking with the same effectiveness. Always start with the front ring first.
  5. Our harnesses are made to be washed and dryed. Due to the slightest chance of color bleeding we ask that you wash the Walk In Sync™ Harness and Accu-Grip Leash separate from all other items. Line Dry Only.
  6. Our exclusive patented Walk in Sync™ Accu-grip leash was designed with you in mind. Soft, yet strong handles specifically placed at 2 ½ ft intervals allow you to stay consistent with your dog in order to master the Walk In Sync walk. Once you have mastered the 24 and 48 inch lengths, you can walk your dog or puppy from the loop and yet always feel confident and comfortable when you need to get a firm hold on the leash.
  7. Once your puppy or dog is walking consistently well on the 24” length for a minimum of 3 walks, you can then try out the 48” length and master the walk at that length. You can always go back to the 24” for a refresher should your dog forget. Remember, consistency is key at any length.
  8. Leash chewing is often a sign of attempting to take charge. If your puppy or dog is chewing on the leash, start by gently shaking the leash around in their mouth while giving the command, “Leave it.” The idea is to make leash chewing as unappetizing as possible. Always praise when your dog does what you ask.
  9. If your pup or dog refuses to walk, walk a few steps ahead to create a straight tension on the leash. With a tension on the leash, keep your attention on moving forward but do not pull on the leash, just keep the tension on the leash and wait until your dog gets tired of the tension and begins to walk with you. Praise and pat. Most of the time your pup or dog will do this because they have learned that they can. If you stay consistent so that they no longer can, you will win. How does it get any better or easier than that?
  10. The idea of walking your dog on a harness is not just for puppy training or to teach them not to pull, its to keep them safe and their body correctly aligned. Once your puppy or dog is no longer pulling, you can always switch to a collar but walking them on a harness even if they no longer require a leash is your safest bet.
  11. We have truly done our best to ensure a proper and comfortable fit for all size ranges of dogs however, if the harness does not fit your dog correctly it may be returned for a different size as long as the harness has not been worn.
  12. We would recommend using the harness for the purposes of training and walking your puppy or dog. Your dog can wear their harness all day but we recommend removing from puppies after each walk and do not leave on all night as they may be able to chew on it.
  13. Collars make great tag carries and we firmly believe that all dogs should have id and license tags on them at all times. However, to train a puppy, teach a dog to stop pulling or just for walking we recommend the Walk In Sync™ Harness to be the most effective and protective way to walk your dog.
