Hey everybody it's me Flash. I need some help.
See me in all my innocence?
Don't I look handsome and angelic? Well mom says most of the time I am but she is making me ask for help in the area of walking me. I am a puller. There I said it. I yank on the leash and on mom and give her hands these lovely stripes of blood spots under the skin after we are done. I hurt her shoulder and neck and then she has to recover before she can walk us again. I know you are all thinking "but not Flash he's the little guy". Well I may look little next to Peanut but I'm 60 lbs of stockiness, muscle, big head and loose neck skin. My neck size is actually the same size as Peanuts.
So she is looking at getting me something to help with the pulling.
Here is what she is looking at
Gentle Leader Easy Walk Harness
Gentle Leader Head Collar
Illusion Dog collar
or maybe one of Patiences Martingale Collars because it says they discourage pulling and they can be cool looking (but mom is a little afraid she wouldn't get the fit right with the rings and such)
So if any of you have used these and can give us some feedback please do. I would love to go on more walks and not rip mom's arm out of the socket in the process and then maybe one day she could walk Peanut and I together but that might be asking to much. Oh maybe if someone knows of a leash with a padded hand grip that would be good also.

Oh and the boy is doing much better. He has swimmer's ear and is on medication. He was in much pain but it is gone now.
