This is a cool picture, but a lot of pet owners underestimate the fragility of a dog's spine. A dog with a spinal/disc injury is a nightmare to deal with and the treatment is both expensive and offers no guarantees.

I advise every one with a dog, to get rid of the collar leash and switch to the shoulder harness.

I love this picture, but something bothers me about it. Let me say I'm not a PETA freak! This is a great way for the dog to have fun and use his energy. Just please use a real chest/body harness next time so he can use his full body strength instead of just his neck and head strength. The dog is wearing a head halter/gentle leader. The idea of the head halter is to STOP dogs from pulling on the leash. When a dog pulls on a leash, this halter is supposed to make it uncomfortable for the dog and causes him to turn his head from the tugging of the leash connected to his nose strap. Think about how much pressure is on his neck pulling the child. Not only is this hard on his neck, but I wouldn't be surprised if he had a lot of irritation especially under his eyes where the strap would be cutting into his skin.
