The Mikki Harness is an efficient training method which does not require excessive force, using the dog’s own natural reaction to stop pulling and to walk by his owner’s side. The harness is a more gentle way to control dogs, teaching them how to remain controlled and relaxed. It is ideal for short nosed breeds, nervous dogs, or those with delicate facial features. The adjustable, reflective collar features a snap lock for safety, ensuring your pet will be freed should he become caught on anything. An anti rub neoprene tubing helps to prevent snagging of long or medium hair

The Best Mikki Training Harness 2019
The Walkrite is a more gentle way to control dogs, teaching them how to remain controlled and relaxed. It is ideal for short nosed breeds, nervous dogs, or those with delicate facial features.
The adjustable, reflective collar features a snap lock for safety, ensuring your pet will be freed should he become caught on anything.
An anti rub neoprene tubing helps to prevent snagging of long or medium hair.
This revolutionary product has a specially designed “easy-steer” system (patent pending) which offers your dog complete comfort while allowing you to maintain control, with a floating lead attachment, allowing you to lead from either side of your dog (and help prevent lead tangles if your dog spins around!)
The main priority is to ensure the comfort and safety of your dog. The Walk-Ease Headcollar comes complete with a padded, reflective noseband (with ever so cute doggy paw prints) and a collar attachment allowing you to secure the headcollar to your dogs own collar – ideal if your dog is a regular Houdini!
This head collar has been lovingly made with great attention to detail – all of the materials have been hand picked to ensure the comfort of your dog and it has been highly tested on a wide variety of breeds and dog sizes.
For best results, use the Mikki Walk-Ease Headcollar in conjunction with the Mikki Multi-Lead which can offer you enhanced control and multiple walking options to suit your every need. You can mark your dog’s good behaviour with perfect timing by using the Mikki Clikka and some of your dogs favourite treats which you can store in the Deluxe Treat Bag.
The Mikki WalkRite Anti Pull Harness is perfect for keeping control when out walking as this harness will prevent your dog from pulling, allowing you to keep control in a way that won’t harm your dog.
It comes complete with an adjustable reflective collar, keeping you and your dog seen at night, an ‘easy-fit’ snap lock and Neoprene tubing, giving you strong control that is gentle to your dog.
The harness is fitted around the body so it’s ideal for short nose breeds, those with delicate facial features or nervous dogs. Unlike the headcollar this fits like any normal harness and allows comfort and stability for you and your dog.
The several designs of No Pull Harness / Collars that Mikki have created help you choose which is the best dog harness to stop your dog from pulling, not just with one option, but with several.
You as the owner are the only one that knows what your dog likes / dislikes, Mikki provides a range that suits everyone.
in 4 sizes from small to extra large, you can always ensure that the harness will fit your dog (check sizing guide on product information)

The Mikki Harness will prevent your dog from pulling and enable you to keep control the kind way. The harness is not fitted to the face, therefore it is perfect for short nose breeds, those with delicate facial features or nervous dogs. This revolutionary product comes complete with an adjustable reflective collar, ‘easy-fit’ snap lock and Neoprene tubing to allow you strong but gentle control.
Dogs don’t know that they should walk politely next to you. They see a big world in front of them and are eager to get out and explore it! The first time your dog succeeds in pulling on the lead they are rewarded. This of course is done unintentionally by you, but the dog soon learns that pulling gets them where they want to go more quickly. This behaviour is then associated with a payment – ‘I pull; I get to go where I want to go!’ Bad habits then quickly become routine behaviour. If your dog pulls strongly, it may also be useful to look at changing your standard lead to one that’s more versatile. A Multi-Lead can be arranged into a variety of lengths and even allows you to wear it around your body to give you extra security when out walking
Fitting Instructions- Mikki Harness
- Measure the collar around your dog’s neck so it is a secure but comfortable fit (fig. 1). To make the collar smaller move the buckle towards the centre of the collar, to make the collar larger move the buckles away from the centre.
- Fit the collar around your dog’s neck with the two large D-rings on top (fig. 2).
- Thread one clip of the stop line (with Neoprene tubing) down through each D-ring. Pass the clips behind each of your dog’s front legs and up the front of the chest (fig. 3). Fasten the clips into the small D-rings on the front collar.
- Adjust the stop lines by moving the clamp (press the release button) towards the collar. Make sure that the stop lines are not too tight. Fasten your lead to the ring.
If you are fitting a new product or something that feels new and different, such as a harness, take your time and introduce it slowly. Encourage your pet to play with his toys, chew on a treat or interact with you whilst he is wearing the new product or he may be tempted to chew or try to remove it. Gradually build up the amount of time he wears it until he is comfortable enough for you to begin the next steps of training.
What leads are best to be used with the Mikki Harness?

Training Guide- Mikki Harness
- Fit the Mikki Harness according to the instructions before walks.
- When your dog begins to pull ahead, stop walking immediately. This causes the harness to tighten and exerts gentle pressure to counteract your dog’s tendency to pull or lunge.
- Encourage your dog to return to your side and then continue walking forwards. Praise your dog for walking nicely and continue training for 10-15 minutes. Train regularly to maximise improvements.
- Once your dog is walking reliably without pulling, clip the lead onto both D-rings and continue your walk.
- If your dog still pulls or lunges repeat stages 1 to 4.
- When your dog can walk without pulling, remove the stop lines and walk with the lead attached to both D-rings.
Continue with the training programme until your dog can walk correctly with a collar and lead only.
If your pet is not used to training then you will have to begin with very short sessions, perhaps just two to three minutes each. This will allow him to discover the enjoyment of training whilst preventing him from becoming confused, bored or frustrated. It is often more realistic to fit in several short training sessions each day than to try to commit to a long lesson which is harder to arrange around work, children or other pets.
