The Freedom No Pull Harness was Designed & Patented by Jessica MacDonald, co-owner of this website and USA Dog Shop.

The Freedom No Pull Harness is endorsed worldwide by Trainers, Vets, Adoption Groups, and seen on the hit training show It's Me or the Dog on Animal Planet.

The unique patented harness design minimizes/eliminates pulling, neck strain, and the chance of escape. 

The harness is extremely effective for training and minimizes the effect of pulling for several reasons: (1) tightening effect of the loop on the harness, (2) the location of the loop, (3) the reconfigurable design that allows you to attach to only the back or to the front and back of the harness simultaneously.

The Patented Moveable Tensioning Loop:

The patented tensioning loop located behind the dog's neck on the FREEDOM No Pull Harness is designed to gently tighten around the dog's chest as the dog pulls. The loop is the key to the training and communication between the human and the dog. The harness does not work from creating pain instead the harness works with the dog in a very natural manner. As the dog pulls the harness tightens around the structure of the dog. When the dog stops pulling the harness provides immediate positive feedback by releasing the slight tension. The loop on the harness will not hurt or injure the dog as it has a limitation on how much it can tighten.  

Loop Location:

The location of the loop is also important. The loop was designed and placed at the base or scruff of the dog's neck as this is the dog's center of gravity. This is why a mother dog picks up her pups from the scruff. It is easier to control from the center of gravity rather than an extremity like the neck. You can literally lift your dog up by the loop of the harness without hurting them. This situation is not possible with a neck collar. When the dog is pulling forward the harness lifts the dog slightly off of their feet minimizing their over all strength and power and allowing you to gain more control.

Gentle Hugging Action:

The gentle hugging around  the structure of the dog's body has been found to be beneficial with dogs suffering from anxiety and/or agression issues.  This is the same reason why compression jackets help ease anxiety.  

Connecting to the Front & Back, Additional Control:

Should you desire to both redirect your dog as well as provide training from the back loop, you can purchase the two point connection leash. This leash allows you to connect to the front and back of the harness simultaneously.  In the front and back configuration you are controlling the entire structure of the dog instead of a single point, thus maximizing control.

Removing Pressure from the Neck:

The harness is designed so that the front straps are located below the neck area minimizing the possibility of many common neck, trachea, spinal cord and optical injuries associated with pulling/tugging on a collar. Additionally, the harness is found to be helpful assisting dogs with amputations or arthritis. 

Why Does the Harness Work?

Most harnesses allow a dog to pull harder because they distribute the pressure. The Freedom No Pull Harness is different because the loop located on the back gently tightens as the dog pulls. The slight pressure allows you to control the dog easier while simultaneously giving the dog a physical cue. The tightening is only slight so it does not cause injury to the tendons or back. 

Training Leash

Click here for the Training Leash Comparison Summary Page

The 4-way configuration Training Leash seen in the picture can be purchased as an add-on above.The Training Leash features a clip on either end and a single floating handle. The (2) clips allow you to:

  1. Connect both clips to just the back of the harness. This configuration creates a 3' long leash.
  2. Extend the leash by sliding the webbing handle all the way to one end.  Clip one end of the leash to the harness and the other end to the "o" ring at the leash handle.  This configuration makes a 5' lead.
  3. Connect one clip to the front of the harness and one clip to the back of the harness.  This configuration allows you to work with the dog from multiple points.
  4. Connect one clip to the back of the harness and one clip to the collar.  This configuration allows you to work with the dog from multiple points.  This configuration is intended to help people move away from using the collar to using only the harness.

You may also purchase the 10-way configuration Freedom Lead, sold above or the training leads page. This leash has 10 different types of functionality rather than just (4).

Please note the 4-Way configuration Training Leash will be shipped in the width and color that matches the harness you ordered unless you order the leash separately on the leash section of the website.  For example, if you order a black 1" wide harness with a silver loop, the leash will be 1" wide, black with a silver handle.  

The 10-configuration leash is (1) color and will match the main color of the harness.  For example, if you order a 1" wide red harness with black loop the leash will be 1" wide solid red unless you order the leash separately on the leash section of the website.

Harness Leash Color Combinations:

Each harness is a solid color with contrasting colored loop on the back of the harness.  Not only is the contrasting loop fashionable but also functional as you can easily identify how to place the harness on your dog, the loop sits on the back of the dog at the base of their neck.  When ordering either the 4-way training leash or the 10-configuration leash, you will receive a leash that matches the harness, unless you specify otherwise in the notes section when ordering.

About the Inventor of the Harness

Jessica MacDonald is the owner and inventor of the Freedom Harness. She is also the owner/partner of this site, USA Dog Shop, and the store located at Palisades Center Mall in West Nyack, NY. Jessica has been in the Pet Industry and has been working with people and their animals for over twelve years. She designed the patented harness after walking a friends large, 150 lb dog, Raven, who was dragging her down the street. Raven, a Rottweiler, was originally in a prong collar. The collar was not effective in controlling the dog because the force was only placing pressure on the neck and not controlling the strongest point of the dog at the center of gravity, i.e. the chest.

After conceptionalizing the tensioning loop design, she sewed together a harness, put it on Raven, and found that the harness was extremely effective as a training tooling and minimizing the pulling. She then applied and received the US Patent on the Freedom No Pull Harness.

Should you have any questions please call USA Dog Shop directly and Jessica or a team member will be happy to help you.

Reviews: Recommended World Wide by Vets, Trainers, & Adoption Groups

The Freedom Harness is recommended by trainers as the "ultimate in flexibility, control, and training." Vets love the harness because it is designed to walk from the back of the dog keeping their spinal cord in alignment. Adoption groups love it because of its' ease of use. Training Guide: by Casey Lomonaco, KPA CTPIndependent Review

"Prompt and courteous communication + really fast shipping = one happy customer (me)."

"Quality construction – this thing is really well made""In short, I love this thing. Eight paws and two thumbs up"

"if the Freedom Harness and the Easy Walk Harness starred in an episode of “Celebrity Death Match”, the Freedom Harness would probably win. I really prefer this to the Easy Walk and am going to do my best to see if I can convince our shop manager to offer this alternative down at the classroom." PamperedPuppy by Liz Bradley

"We have tried so many no-pull leashes with Paddington that I cannot even count. All of them claimed to be the best of the best and none of them worked....until now!!"

"From the owner of the previously named "worst leash walker" I can honestly vouch for the Freedom No-Pull Harness by Wiggles, Wags and Whiskers. It works, and I couldn't be happier about it." by Mary Lou Sept 2010

"After trying out over a dozen makes and models of dog harnesses, a clear winner has emerged which fits the Harness Criteria for Hard-Core Pullers set out last week. The Top Pick overall is the No-Pull Harness from Wiggles Wags & Whiskers."

Constructed of industrial strength nylon webbing, the FREEDOM No Pull Harness features solid stainless steel hardware, reinforced X- stitching and a comfort conscious design that keeps webbing edges turned out to prevent irritation. Additionally, this harness features a luxurious Swiss Velvet lined chest strap to inhibit chafing behind the front legs.

Dimensions Please Note: The measurement is more important than the weight. The weight is only a guideline.

5/8" XSmall: Harness Girth Size 14"-20" Approximate Weight: 13 lbs to 21 lbs

5/8" Small: Harness Girth Size 18"-24" Approximate Weight: 20 lbs to 35 lbs

5/8" Medium: Harness Girth Size 22"-28" Approximate Weight: 35 lbs to 50 lbs

1" Medium: Harness Girth Size 22"-28" Approximate Weight: 35 lbs to 50 lbs

1" Large: Harness Girth Size 26"-32" Approximate Weight: 48 lbs to 80 lbs

1" X-Large: Harness Girth Size 30"-38" Approximate Weight: 75 lbs to 130 lbs

1" 2X-Large: Harness Girth Size 36"-44" Approximate Weight: 125 lbs to 200 lbs

Custom Large Sizes: If your dog is greater than the 2X-large we can have the harness custom made for you.

Selecting the Correct Harness Size: Measure the circumference of your dog's chest by placing the tape measure all the way around the girth (rib cage), behind the front legs. The tape measure should be flat to the dog, not pulled tight, but not loose. Select a size that is closest to the middle range of the harness.


If your dog measures 26" and is an adult at a good weight, you will want the medium 22"-28" not the large 26" to 32".

If your dog is 31 1/2" and is an adult at a good weight, you will want the X-large 30"-38" not the large 26" to 32". Selecting the size closest to the middle will allow maximum adjustability and comfort for you dog.

If your dog is a puppy please email or call us so we can help you select a size that will fit your puppy now and as they grow bigger.

    I tried to rate the pink one I bought but for some reason it hit 3 stars n wouldn't let me change it ..I would not beordering these harness again ..I wish I liked it so I could over 2 more for my other dog but that not the case . I ordered these after a dog trainer told me to ,I wish I didn't listen ..from the time I got it in I had issues .I measured the best I could for the sizes but I even emaile prior just to make sure that sounded correct owner said yes for a husky that correct I gave her everything she said .When it came in I contacted them it was to large and with a rude customer service she said "well I don't know your dog you should measure better". I understand I messed up measurement but as soon as I told her what kind of dog she said "well I knew that size would be to big" but again that why I emailed her first since she said she double check them first .I guess rushing though email she didn't notice I said Husky ..Very rude trying to return for a different size But I didn't want to pay for restocking fee so I just changed it for a smaller size ..But after using it for 3 walks so far I dislike it .My other dog has a different brand and I love that one so we will be switching everyone to that .If you wanna waste money go ahead and order if not .i would say look around

    I had a great experience with ordering my harness and the product itself! I made a little mistake with my information while ordering but when I contacted the company Jessica responded immediately and was very friendly and helpful. The harness arrived adjusted to her correct size and fits great, I especially like the soft lining because our dog has sensitive skin. I never write reviews but I was so pleased with this product and service I would recommend the no-pull harness to any dog owner!

    Easily the best investment I've made for my dogs. I can't rate the harness and leash high enough! My two dogs (pitbulls) I've always thought to be impossible to walk. I bought this on the recommendation of a trainer and have been absolutely amazed! The pulling is minimized and most importantly my dogs have learned how to walk calmly and at my pace. I had a great experience with the customer service and shipping. THANK YOU!
