Harnesses aren’t actually great for dogs that pull. They do give you a little more control over them because of the greater surface area, however it actually encourages them to pull more. It’s easier for them to throw their weight against something that is around their chests rather than their necks. Check out videos of beefy dogs pulling giant trucks and other things. They wear harnesses. The best, most effective way to teach a dog not to pull is with a Gentle Leader head collar. It tightens slightly around their muzzle when they pull and releases when they’re not pulling, giving them clear signals of the right and wrong way to walk. You don’t put a collar or a harness on a horse and expect them not to run away with you. You use a halter. Same with dogs.
