I have had eleven dogs over a period of 46 years. Yes, they require work Sometimes they are inconvenient, but then, sometimes I can be inconvenient myself. I used to have yellow labs and dressed in light colored clothes but kept a lint brush or roller handy. I enjoy pleasure and destinational walks with my dog. I used to have a two hour commute which my retired girl found a bit tough. Now that I am retired, I only go where I want but old habits die hard and we go somewhere every day. Ten thousand steps you know. I went to Guide Dogs for the Blind for 42 years and attended Guide Dogs of America for my last dog. You own your dog but they own the harness. The dogs don’t care. I like dogs and find my current guide engaging, a hard worker and a great being. Of course Guides are not for everybody. If you don’t like dogs, don’t want the admitted expense and time they take, they are not for you. My cane skills did deteriorate over years but I was able to get around between dogs. Good luck whatever you finally decide to do.
I've used harness checks on two of my four guide dogs thru the years. In each situation it was done when my dog was rushing and had picked up its pace and was moving a little too quickly for my comfort... and each time it was in a very crowded area/situation (Christmas time in malls lol).

During the past years, I have developed a few new products that are pictured on the PDF links of this webpage. Please take the time to examine the new Support X Harness, the Wheelchair Pulling Harness, Circle E's version of a Guide Dog Harness and a light weight harness used with autistic children. The new products are the result of customers asking for something they needed and could not find.Humans communicate primarily in a verbal manner, while dogs rely more on visual cues. While this can make communication between the two species challenging at the best of times, it's particularly difficult when the human is unable to see the dog – as is the case with blind people and their guide dogs. As a result, it may not always be possible for owners to know when their guide dogs are stressed. An experimental new harness, however, may be able to help.Some people who received their service animal from dog guide schools choose to purchase additional leashes and harnesses to supplement the equipment they received with their dog. Most guide dog schools in the U.S. provide leather harnesses (to my knowledge, in Mississippi is the only guide dog school that issues harnesses made from nylon webbing), so some guide dog owners buy a nylon harness to use at the beach, or in the woods because it is very easy to wash if it gets soiled. Another reason is to try out a different style of harness – a Y front as opposed to the more traditional straight front harness. For individuals who choose to train their service animal, buying their equipment is not just a handy option, but it is a necessity. Super soft plush dogs with a brown guide dog harness. Available in black Lab, yellow Lab or Golden Retriever. Kids will love this as a gift! Modeled with staff dog, Dolly.
