I tend to like the perfect fit and balance the best myself. Next for me of what I have seen in person is the freedom. The ruffwear front range is really nice quality, but it seems to be hit or miss in the fit, particularly around the neck (too large for some dogs even adjusted to the smallest it can go). So if interested, in that particular harness, find a place you can try it on or look for free returns of buying online.

Another option is going with a well fitting Roman style harness. They will have a o-ring on the chest you can clip a leash to. Many of my students go with lupine as they have cute patterns, are wallet friendly, super adjustable, and have an awesome replacement policy (well replace for free, even if chewed up).

And for some reason she doesn't wine like normal dogs, its like a bark whine almost but it seriously sounds like a person, its weird. And Lilly isn't a poor dog, shes actually very happy and for the most part, she gets away with things a lot of dog owners would not let their own dogs do, we are pretty lenient with her, but some things have definitely crossed the line. Again, I just do not want things to progress even more.
Are you open to reward based training suggestions for these issues? We can help with methods and tips that can be used to resolve or handle these issues allowing you to get rid of the spray bottle!

@Shadowmom, I understand you have had many good experiences and that is awesome!May that always be the case! Just as you wish people wouldn't generalize all parks as awful, you might not push them so strongly as wonderful, life saving places. Many, many people and dogs do have unpleasant experiences, including at dog parks in your part of the world. Likely even at the exact parks you frequent. Again it is ok to have differing opinions (and fwiw I was stating I wouldn't suggest them for this dog because of behavior/training, not bashing all parks in general). We've both shared our thoughts/opinions. Let's move on and help hannahnicole. This thread is about her dog and her questions!

Ok I'll start a different thread since it's many people on this site that have a close minded view in their postings and unfortunately bad advice. I thought I read on one thread or in the rules that we were supposed to post using our firsthand personal experiences? Since my dog hates and won't play fetch and is too strong to play tug with much safely for my bad knee and he absolutely requires a lot of physical daily exercise, dog parks were and crucial to buildings our bond and my being able to safely keep him, so I posted honestly and sincerely.
As far as harnesses go, I have a harness that is called No Pull that I got at Tractor Supply. It can be attached either at the back of the harness between the shoulder blades or in front at the chest. It's definitely helpful.
I use lupine leashes now and their replace policy is awesome given that my dog has chewed through or simply snapped eight of them so far. They've always replaced them free which I appreciate since he's so rough on them.

@hannahnicole - The harnessed kmes suggested are good choices. If you're going to look for a front clip harness, you really want to make sure that the strap doesn't go across the shoulder. This restricts should movement and can be quite uncomfortable for your dog.
