This way, even if your dog does pull, the weight will be distributed evenly across the body instead of centralized on the neck. Attaching the leash to the front of the harness is recommended since it will give you even more control over your furry friend. Every time you tug on the leash, hell turn slightly toward you as a result, reminding him of your presence. If your dog pulls on the leash, stand firm. Dont pull back, and dont follow.
