My first walk! Any suggestions on great leashes that won’t pull mommy’s arm off as we need new ones.

My pawrents just got the Freedom harness for me and they LOVE it...
Look into the fleece harnesses at @cleanrunmagazine ‘s website! Especially as a puppy you don’t want a front loop one because it can really mess up the alignment of his back and shoulders... poor Kira was hunched over for years before we realized what was causing it!
@kira_and_kona Thanks for that as I have one of those harnesses for the bigger dog and I don’t like how it pulls him back. So I can totally see how it would affect puppies growth.
@river.the.giver absolutely!!! We love the ones we use now! It spreads the weight evenly across her shoulders so that she doesn’t get all out of alignment. It was so awful how rounded her back became with the other brand... she couldn’t even relax her muscles
I did well with a gentle leader. It’s a slip lead that twists and goes over the nose. It makes it very hard to pull.
We like the easy walker harness the leashe attaches in the front and I've never had a retriever that doesn't pull. Max is my first and it worked on my 9 year old chocolate lab who couldn't walk on a leash at all'
