Thanks everyone. After reading the posts, I think I will look into the harness 1) for that one time I might have to yank Joey out of the way of something and 2) I dont want to change his personality when he's going out. I want walking to be something pleasant for BOTH of us. As it is right now, I can't take Joey outside of our yard (we have about an acre and a half in the country) b/c his behavior and pulling is SO bad. Maybe with the harness, I can start walking him around the community and he can see that there are other ppl and creatures that exist in this world. LOL The last time I took him to the vet, he was almost impossible to keep at my side so I am going to give the harness a try.
