So I haven't been able to take Bella on walks because it is FREEZING here and there is a massive amount of snow outside! I bought Bella a harness so that I could walk her and because I cannot take her out quite yet, I take her to Petsmart or try to get her used to walking on a leash in the apartment..Let me tell you what, she is a STUBBORN little thing!! I have been unsuccessful everytime. I asked her breeder how to help this and she told me to try putting the harness on her and letting her get use to it..so I tried that. Then she said to put the leash on and let her walk around with it on so that she gets less scared of it..I tried that too..Here's the result..

"You can try all you want, but I'm not moving!"


"Still sitting here."


"Maybe if I wrestle this thing, it'll come off!"


"Ughhhh, I give up."


"Mom! This thing is making my eyeballs go all goofy!"


"Hahahaha, you surrendered:) I win!"

Ahhaha! I love little Bella, she's so darn cute! She kinda reminds me of Venus when she was still just a couple months old.

Yea, she was not thrilled with me today..Haha..Stubborn little girl!!! She hates the leash..She moves around fine with the harness, but freezes when that leash is attached to her!! Ha! I'll check out the Puppia ones! They are cute! Where can you find them and are they super expensive??

sizes differ according to which one u get, where u get it from . usually its like this

XS fits Neck 7-8" Chest 11-13" Weight 3-4#

Small fits Neck 8-10" Chest 14-16" Weight 5-7#

so im guessing xs for bella? unless shes big but she looks tiny? lol. i got mine a small before and it was big for hi at bellas age and then finally he grew into it and now he grew out of it...so i had to get him a medium LOL

If the thing with leaving on the harness & lead fails to work then when the snow clear up you should try taking her out somewhere she hasn't been before and put her down with her harness and lead on then just walk . She should follow you if you just walk and don't turn around and look at her.

LOL, love it!
Darla was the same, she looked like her world was about to end and would sit in her bed and refuse to move.
Now she walks fine.
Am sure Bella will be the same.
She really is a cutie pie! x
