We have taken the harness off of Cirque when on walks and she is not pulling as much as she did when she was switching back and forth from the harness. She does have a tendency to pull a bit when starting her walk (flat collar) but always is loose leash when she has settled down in the walk. Cirque has been working on her down command. For some reason she is reluctant at times to go into her down. We are working on duration with not a lot of distraction and gradually will work toward higher distraction once the length of time has increased.
We only had Cirque for about 7 days in March. We were on vacation and she was with her co-raisers Joan and Johnathan. They have submitted a monthly report also.
