Zuba™ DreamWalker is a newly designed and patented "no pull" harness. It is truthfully the first “no pull” harness on the market that is both humane and REALLY WORKS! The Zuba DreamWalker’s adjustable “stop cord” applies pressure across the dog’s chest, which will stop him, but only if he pulls. It does not cause pain, pinching or chafing. If not pulling, the stop cord, which is strong but very lightweight, is designed to not constrict his movement at all - it rests away from the chest. The adjustable neck and body straps hold the stop cord in the desired position. The straps are made of top quality tubular nylon webbing with curved buckles, and when properly adjusted to have a comfy fit, the Zuba DreamWalker is immediately and continually comfortable for a dog to wear.
Works instantly…No special training required.
Approved by trainers & veterinarians.
A comfortable, easy to use handle.
Three different handle options in one harness.
A relaxed fit for your dog, with no discomfort, pinching, or chafing.
Fits dogs 50 - 130 pounds.
Here are just a few of the many DreamWalker testimonials:
From a woman in her 80's.
I am a senior citizen, and my son owns a two year Golden Retriever, who stays with my husband and me as we have a large fenced backyard.
When she was a puppy, it was very easy for me to take her out for walks, but as she grew and became stronger, it was hard for me to manage. She would pull on the leash and I was afraid of falling!
Recently I got the Zuba Dream Walker. It is just what I needed to go out walking with her! Now she doesn't pull and she walks beside me and stops immediately when I want her to in case she is going too fast for my old legs. It is certainly great to be able go out with my dog, and we both get exercise and have a good time together seeing the outdoors!
From a professional trainer for hunting dogs
Got the DreamWalker today. Put it on my worst dog...what a miracle! I can not believe the change. I passed it off to my head trainer to work with it over the next few days.
I can tell you now that this thing is going to be HUGE!!!
From owner of a very strong and persevering Pit Bull Terrier mix
To say that my dog would pull on the leash is an understatement. Probably a more accurate description is that I was hauled down the street a couple of times a day. I had tried pinch collars, choke chains, martingales, harnesses and head collars. I was therefore, hopelessly resigned to the fact that I would allow my dog to drag me along our walks twice a day.
...I was lucky enough be introduced to the Dream Walker harness. My dog’s response to this harness was remarkable! I was in awe, and I still am! I am impressed at how positively she responds to this harness and how much control I have. The most wonderful thing about this it is that it opens up an avenue for clear communication with my dog during our walks. She really responds to the sensations it brings as we walk with no pulling. Most importantly, I feel confident that I have a product that is not going to injure or inflict pain on my dog in order for me to communicate with her.
Best of all, I am now enjoying leisurely walks with my dog every single day!!
From a young woman injured by her strong pulling dog
After getting Tendinitis from having my 50lb. lab pulling on the leash, I didn't want to walk her anymore! The DreamWalker is amazing! I love walking her now! I was worried about her safety when I used other "anti-pull" leashes on her, but this one is safe. I feel confident in telling everyone about it!
Q: I'm a professional trainer, and a few colleagues have mentioned this product. I'm wondering what theory was used to design it, and how it stops the dog from moving forward without pain.
A: Thank you for your inquiry. I too am a professional trainer and necessity was certainly the mother of invention for this product! To stop, slow down or just the subduing effect for some dogs, at times I use the technique of draping my leash low across the dog's chest, keeping it slack unless they pull. If in the correct position, this works very well - it does not require much tension to stop the dog and relieving the tension allows freedom of movement. But, it can be a challenge to keep the leash in place, especially when walking two dogs.
This problem was solved using the front strap on the collar and the movable loops on the body strap to keep the stop cord in position. Please know that whether stiff or soft, wide or thin, the stop cord crossing the dog's front effectively restricts a dog's movement and that is why it works - not because it is painful. Even a velvet ribbon would work, but a bit of "handler skills" would be required to use it correctly. When there is no tension on it, the stop cord we are now using helps the cord easily slid into position away from the dog's front.
Q: My dog is a big male Spanish Mastiff, he is a strong puller. I was pleased with the (brand of front hook harness) and (brand of head collar), but now I am thrilled with the DreamWalker. The only thing is that I am a bit worried that this harness could cause injury on my dogs radial nerves. Do you have information about this issue?
A: To our knowledge there has not been any problem with the stop cord causing injury. The testers who have been using it for up to 21/2 years would certainly report any problem with the DW - and please note all testers have dogs that were "strong pullers". Additionally, the DreamWalker has been out to the general public for months now and again, we have not had any problems reported.
If the DreamWalker is used correctly so it crosses the upper arm, it is not hitting the radial nerve. And, if used correctly, the dog stops hitting the stop cord almost altogether.
However, having said all that, if someone continues to be concerned, to help alleviate any anxiety, my suggestion is to pad the front of the stop cord using the Velcro tape with adhesive backing and wrap the fuzzy part around the stop cord.
Q: Could you please explain how this harness can be "faded"?
A: Sure, the great thing about this harness is that it works so well, it preempts reinforcement of unwanted pulling behavior while giving a great opportunity to reinforce desired LLW behavior. Another cool thing about the DreamWalker is that unlike most no-pull management tools (take off the tool and the dog takes off :-), this harness can be easily used as a training tool.
When a pulling dog is first fitted with the harness, maximum stopping power is warranted and the stop cord should be adjusted low across the dog's front chest. The dog will quickly learn that pulling does not work and once the dog no longer tries to pull in the harness, the stop cord can be adjusted higher across the dog's front. To do this, the "fader" loops on the body strap are adjusted upwards and the neck and front straps are shortened which also raises the stop cord. The fading is down in increments until the stop cord is at the collar level.
Interestingly, we are getting reports back, that because of the "residual" effect of the harness, some dogs are being weaned off it without "fading".
Q: I am using the DreamWalker on a deep- chested dog and the body strap sometimes slips back. Is there a way to stop this?
A: First, please make sure that the body strap fits snugly around the dog and lies just behind his foreleg (arm pits). You can also make the circumference of the blue neck collar smaller so that it lies higher on the neck rather than just above the breast bone. This will help keep the body strap in place. To compensate shortening the neck collar, you will likely need to increase the length of the front strap so that the stop cord is back in the proper position. Please make sure to re-check your adjustments so that the harness fits comfortably on the dog and that the stop cord is in the proper position.
Q: How do I fix the stop cord from riding up my dog's front? I can still stop him but not as well as when it is lower.
A: Please first check that the tube on the front strap is pushed all the way down to the top of the bead securing the stop cord. Also, is the stop cord in the proper position? It may need to be adjusted lower across your dog's front. If the harness is properly adjusted and you still are having the problem, please review the stop and go exercise. It is important that after
stopping your dog, you relax and drop your hand so that the stop cord can move back into position away from your dog's front.
