It's an interesting idea...but I think it's unfortunately just one of those training tools that may work for some but not for most...

Looks kinda like it picks their back feet off the ground so they can't push off to be able to pull.  Doesn't look at all comfortable.  There are better ways to teach a dog to walk nicely.

I saw a poodle wearing something similar at training.  It didn't seem to helping at all.  That poodle was completely out of control and leaping all over the place.

It looks like a non-jumping harness.  You can get them on AOL, at PetSmart, PetCo, etc...  There are a lot of mixed reviews on this type of harness, because it works for some dogs and not for others.  There are also product "quality" issues too.  Do a search on "anti-jump dog harness" and you'll see what there is.

Now the only thing that this is missing is a "Gentle Leader" instead of a regular collar, and you'll really have the poor dog confused.

I just came across this - what do you think?
