Meet Duke - a very special boy!

It took 2 people to walk Duke because of his size and blindness. Lou-ann and Kate, owners of Walk-Me Slip Harness, made an extra large Walk-Me Slip Harness for Duke and now walking him is a breeze.
The owners of Howlmore were skeptical that any harness would be safe enough for one person to walk Duke with, but, were amazed at the results when they did walk him on his new Walk-Me Slip Harness - Duke never leaves his enclosure now unless he's on his Walk-Me.
I encourage anyone with a large dog or any dog for that matter who doesn't walk well on a collar & leash to get a Walk-Me Slip Harness, it truely makes such a difference, for the owner and for the dog.
I personally find it very comforting when I use a Walk-Me Slip Harness knowing that; while it gives me full control of any dog I maybe walking in the course of my volunteer work, it will not cause the dog any pain or damage, like other devices such as; the choker chain, pinch collar, etc.
No dog deserves to suffer or be injured just because no one took the trouble or time to teach them how to walk on a leash. Especially, the frightened, neglected, abandonned and abused ones I work with.
Thanks Walk-Me and keep up the good work you do, I'd like to see every dog walked on a Walk-Me Slip Harness.
