I have an Easy Walk, and it looks to me like the Freedom harness would rub in nearly the same spot as the Easy Walk.

For a true non-friction fit I think you’d need a Puppia.  I just did a google search and came across this Comfy Control Harness that has the same shape/fit as the Puppia, but has the “squeezy” factor that helps with control like the Easy Walk and Freedom do.  I think this might be an option for us next time we’re shopping for a harness actually!

My dog is GREAT on the EasyWalk! She’s so much better on a lead on EasyWalk than on her collar. I don’t know anything about the Freedom harness, but the EasyWalk doesn’t rub on her at all. I do find that I have to readjust it pretty much every time I put it on her because the nylon belting kind of slides a bit in the many buckles. She seems very comfortable in it though, as long as I am conscientious about fitting it snugly each time.

Here’s my take: the poor thing nearly burned holes in her armpits on the EasyWalk at first, but now that she has learned not to pull on the leash, the situation is much, much better.  It works really well for us.  I also like the strap straight across the back.  It works kind of like a handle for when we need to physically redirect her at the dog park (or grab her when she catches on that it’s time to leave and tries to evade us haha).  Clearly coming when called is not her best command.

@oracle:  Yep, that’s about how I keep it. If it’s any looser, she can pull around inside it and loosen it even more, which gives me less control.

I am interestd in hearing recommendations as well. We are looking into getting a harness for our pup. They no longer make the one we have for our other dog

I actually use the harness that is linked above, I really like it, but I don’t think it is as good as the easy walk about teaching not to pull, so if you want it for that then maybe not, but if you just want a harness I think its really good. Also when we did training with our dog our instructor noticed a lot of people had their dogs in an easy walk that was maybe a bit to small/ snug and she said it really shouldn’t rub if it fits right but to be honest I don’t know how it couldn’t rub….. So I know I’m not much help, sorry!

 

ETA: The harness linked above that we use is super easy to take on and off though, much easier than any other one we have tried, and our dog seems to prefer it to others.
