Begin by introducing the harness gradually. Let your dog sniff and get comfortable with it before putting it on.
Ensure the harness fits snugly but not too tight. You should be able to fit two fingers between the harness and your dog's body.
Learn the correct way to buckle the harness. A snug but not constricting fit is crucial for your dog's comfort and safety.
Conduct short training sessions to associate positive experiences with the harness. Reward your dog for cooperation.
Regularly assess your dog's comfort level. Watch for any signs of irritation, and adjust the harness accordingly.
Periodically examine the harness for wear and tear. Replace it if you notice any damage to ensure your dog's safety.
Increase the duration your dog wears the harness gradually. This helps them adapt without stress.
