Maker: Jerry Barnes, owner

Business: Well Heeled Way

Location: Hartville

Well Heeled Way owner Jerry Barnes has decades of experience training dogs and learning from their behavior in his kennel. When his business nosedived due to the pandemic, he decided to tackle the number one complaint he heard from owners: leash-pulling. Barnes invented a harness, using the concept of pressure to calm animals.
