i cant get Mia to wear a harness.
i want to take her for walks and teach her to walk on a leash,
but once i put the harness on her,
she refuses to move.
i tried to start slow by just letting her wear it around the house for a little while at a time. but that doesnt seem to be working either. she still doesnt move.
i can get her to wear a collar no problem, but the harness is another story.
anyone else have this problem??

I would put it on really loose like it isn't on her at all... Then let her do her thing... When we first put gadget in his he wouldn't do anything either...

I actually put it on him and loved him for a few minutes with it on and then took it off.. and kept doing that for about 5 times then the 5th time I left it on him for a while...

It really worked great.. but it was really loose the first few times.. then I would tighten it each time..

good luck and God bless

does your chi like to wear clothes? i know they make clothes with harnesses on them, maybe you could try that and kind of "trick" her into wearing one. :)
