At GroomUs, we recommend using a dog harness for your dog instead of a collar when you go for walks. The advantage of using a harness for your dog instead of a collar is that it is gentler on the dog. Note that a harness is not just a harness.
An H-harness fits well on most dogs, as the shoulders are free, and the dog's freedom of movement is not restricted thereby.
New research from 2020 concludes that not a single collar produced such a low pressure that it could not cause lasting damage to the dog when it pulled on the leash.

The Ruffwear harness has 2 options for attachment. Normally the leash is attached to the back, but you can move it to the chest if you have a dog that needs to be trained not to pull. If you have a dog that is not so comfortable meeting other dogs, you can initially use the collar for a short time and change the coupler to get more control. Please note, however, that the desire for better control of the dog can have the exact opposite effect on the dog if it does not simultaneously learn how to act when meeting other dogs. A command and associated reward provide the best experience for both dog and owner.
