Exercise For Dogs is a vital part of Training A Dog. Using a Dog Walking Harness or simple Dog Harness and Leash makes the job so much easier if, it's the right one.

We Feel it's important when visiting a site on the worldwide web that you know who you're dealing with. Real people want to communicate with 'real' people.

Hello and Welcome to Our names are Kate Burgess and Lou-ann Atkinson.

We haven't always had the little dogs you see with us in our pictures! For most of our lives we have owned larger breeds of dogs however, what we have now learned is that; it doesn't matter what size dog you have, they can all be hurt and even permanently damaged by using the neck and head area to restrain and or control them, when walking on a collar and leash or muzzle harness.

We're best friends and business partners. Our business relationship started many years ago when Kate's husband Steven set about inventing a dog walking harness for their special needs boy Dynamic Dave, a very big and strong Australian Cattle Dog (also known as; the Blue Heeler Dog Breed).

steve and dynamic daveSteven and Kate were faced with having to teach an Australian Blue Cattle Dog how to walk on a leash in suburban Sydney, Australia.

Dynamic Dave, also known at times as Manic Dave, for reasons that will be clear when you read his life Story.

Dave would rather have choked himself to death than walk calmly and politely on a leash.

Training A Dog such as a Blue Heeler Dog Breed, to walk on a dog harness and leash proved to be a bigger task than expected.

Through trial and error over the years, Steven designed the Walk-Me Slip Harness. Today, we present what we believe to be the most effective and kindest dog walking harness available.

Our Mission Is To Help Dogs by
"Training & Restraining Without Pain"

It is our 10 year journey with Dynamic Dave and the invaluable lessons we learned along the way from hundreds of other dogs and their owners, re training a dog to walk on a leash, that we hope to share with you on our website.

Everything we present here is personally 'proven' and 'trialled' on many, many dogs over many, many years. It is our desire to make yours and your dog's life easier and happier by being more informed about the options you have for a dog walking harness.

There are literally dozens of different dog walking harnesses on the market. They range from just plain cruel to kind but useless. Believe us when we make this rather blunt statement but, we've tried them all!

Our aim is not to 'sell' you a dog walking harness but, to equip you with the knowledge we have learned so you can make the choice most applicable to your own needs.

One thing however that we must all carefully consider when making the choice of which piece of dog walking equipment to use is; We must stop using the neck and head area to try and control our dogs. It is damaging to the dog and is not effective in providing any real sense of control and certainly does not allow for any proper form of training message to be delivered.
