If you've seen my post int the member's introduction forums, then you've seen pictures of my Charlie with a little red harness on.
Well Charlie out grew the harness a couple of weeks ago, so I went out to the dollar store to pick up a collar to use while he continues to grow.
He had been used to the harness and would walk on it without a fight. However, he absolutely hates the collar. I tried to take him on a short walk around the neighborhood, but didn't get past the driveway. He squirmed and jumped around, and everything else he could to get away from the collar. He'll also try to turn his head and nip at a hand if someone tried to pull him down from somewhere by the collar. He'll wear the collar without a problem durring the day, he just hates when it's lightly pulled at.
Any tips on how to get him used to his collar?
Or do you think that getting him a harness for walks would be better?
He'll be getting his rabies shot tomorrow, then I'll be getting him signed up for behavior classes at the SPCA. I'd like to be able to bring him to classes without him trowing a huge fit over having to have a collar pulled.
