Here are the tips to consider when you are going through this process with your dog.

1. Set Dog Harness On The Floor

The first thing you are going to do is place the dog harness on the floor. A common mistake people make is to rush the process and not put the dog harness on the floor. This means they attempt to have the dog stand up or sit in their lap while trying to get the harness on.

This is much harder because it is not easy to get the dog to stay still and the harness itself has multiple holes that need to be in the right spot.

This is why the better option is to simply put the dog harness on the floor. While doing this, it is important to ensure the harness is spread out and you can see the holes.

2. Put Dog’s Feet In The Two Holes

You are now going to get the dog to walk up to the harness. This is going to be right in front of them and that is when you will put their front legs inside the holes.

The goal is to make sure both legs are evenly inside the holes so they can slide up.

It is better to have the dog held while doing this so they don’t move around. It’s important to do this to make sure you see good results for your dog.

3. Raise The Harness And Clip It

If you don’t raise the harness, it is not going to clip the way you want it to. This is one of the mistakes dog owners make as they attempt to clip it while the harness is halfway on.

Make sure it goes all the way up and is snug against the dog’s body. This is when you are going to have enough leverage to get the dog harness to sit still.

When you are clipping it, it is important to look at where the dog’s fur is. You don’t want to clip the dog’s fur into the harness as that is not comfortable.

4. Begin Adjusting The Harness

Now you are going to begin to adjust the dog harness based on what the dog’s body needs.

This is a mistake many people make because they don’t adjust the harness and assume the initial setting is good enough. It is not good enough because the dog might have excess wiggle room or won’t be able to maximize their positioning while they are moving around.

You want to adjust the dog harness to ensure they are comfortable and it does do its job.

5. Check the Dog’s Movement With Harness On

The last thing to focus on will be the dog’s comfort as a whole. You don’t want a situation where the dog is whining or uncomfortable because the harness is either too tight or drooping all over the place.

This is a mistake people make because you assume as long as the harness is on that it is good to go. No, this is incorrect because when there is no movement, the harness is not going to work out the way you want it to.

Take your time to see how the dog moves around and then go from there. This is the only way to ensure the dog is happy and the harness works the way it should.

Final Thoughts

If you follow the tips mentioned here, it will be a breeze to put on the dog harness. It will work the way you want it to and the results are going to be in your favor.

Do not rush the process and make sure your dog is comfortable when the harness is being put on. This is to ensure the dog has complete movement and enjoys having the harness on. Otherwise, it is going to negatively associate the process with pain or discomfort.
