Walkies

Post by Laura 123 on Tue Jan 05 2016, 15:48

So Bella's walks are coming along great. She loves being off the lead in the park. The only problem we have is getting her harness on.
As soon as I get it out from the cupboard she puts her ears back and hides under the table Sad
She's fine when its on but she seems petrified of it. Any suggestions?

Have a read through this, Laura. There are some video clips in there too - the one of Millie is working on that exact problem, fear of the harness/coat.

Thanks Liz. I'll definitely read this. Feel so bad for her, but she loves when we're out
