    Default Puppy Harness

    We are getting our baby in 2 weeks. Needing know what we need for Roxy who will be 8 weeks old. Start with a harness ( if so with one) or just a collar and when to with to harness. Don't want her to roam free while out and about like at petsmart.

    I have always used a harness. Don't like the idea of pulling on a pup(or any dog's neck).

    So exciting for you!!!!! Can't wait to see photos!! I had both for Joey when she was a pup but quickly switched to harness until she walked nicely on the leash. PLEASE do not take Roxy to Petsmart until she has had FULL ROUND of shots, ask the vet. Someone here advised me of this when I first brought Joey home and it was not until she was much older that she went inside Petco with me. This is because even though Roxy will have her shots there might be dogs in there that are sick and that are not up on their shots. Talk to your vet or maybe someone here will chime in as to when, in age or shot protocol, that it will be safe for your baby to be out and about.
    @Manydogs Lynn, thoughts on Petco trip?

    Photos please
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!

    @sisters3 @Tilden I,personally would not take any pup to Petco, or any other place where dogs have been, until the pup has had all it's shots. I believe that would be asking for trouble. Not everyone who takes their dog in a public place keeps up with shots.

    So, I trained on a collar/leash. Bass was a very easy trainee…I used a leash that made a clicking sound and trained him to stop/start w/the clicks…I got him his harness when he was at a size that was close to what is full adult size was going to be (around 2 or 2.5 years, I believe) <Don't remember exact time…I did this to ensure fit so I wouldn't have to keep upgrading harnesses. If you have a "puller" it is best to switch to a harness (instead of collar leash) no matter what the age/size - so that there will be no pulling on the neck/airway.
