Master the Art of Putting on a Dog Harness for Easy Walks

Walking your furry friend is one of the simple joys of being a dog owner. But getting your pup ready for those walks can sometimes be a hassle, especially when it comes to putting on their harness. A harness is a great tool for comfortable, safe walks as it takes pressure off your dog's neck. With the right technique, putting on a dog harness can be a breeze. Follow these simple steps to master the art of hassle-free harness wearing.


The blog post provides step-by-step instructions for painlessly getting a dog harness on your pup before walks. It suggests first getting your dog excited and cooperative with some treats.

Then it outlines the specific steps:

  1. Loosen and untangle the harness straps
  2. Guide your dog's head through the main opening
  3. Gently put one front paw through each loop, rewarding with treats
  4. Adjust the straps to fit snugly but comfortably

Step 1: Get Your Pup Excited

Before you even pick up the harness, get your dog in an upbeat, cooperative mood. You can do this by grabbing some tasty treats and letting your pup sniff them. Give them one or two treats to pique their interest and get them focused on you.

Step 2: Loosen Up the Harness

Untangle the harness and loosen all the straps so it will easily slip over your dog's head and legs. Lay it out on the floor in front of you.

Step 3: Head Through First

With another treat in hand, guide your pup's head through the main opening of the harness, looping it around their neck. Give them the treat as a reward for cooperating.

Step 4: One Paw at a Time

Next, pick up one of your dog's front paws and gently guide it through the corresponding loop on the harness. Repeat with the other front paw. More tasty rewards will keep your pup engaged.

Step 5: Check the Fit

Once all four legs are through, snug up the straps so the harness isn't too loose but also isn't restricting movement. You should be able to slip two fingers underneath it. Adjust as needed.

Step 6: Time for a Walk!

And just like that, your pup is ready for their walk! Attach the leash to the front or back clip, depending on your preference, and you're all set to explore.
