We have had this for our husky/shepherd mix. We didnt want the kind of harness that hooks into the back as that had a great potential of bringing out the husky tendency for pulling as like a sled dog. We were told to try to find one with a front hook. THIS is the BEST we have wonderful control with him he cannot pull out of control. And i love the fact we dont have to resort to using the choker style controls! We have a medium size that we purchased when max was about 2 months old we are moving into the large now. I would recommend this to ANYONE who wants to be able to have control in a gentle way!
