He won't let anyone else put on his harness/walk him...

Postby essennvee » Mon Jan 02, 2017 6:12 pm

Hi everyone, I was wondering if you all had difficulties regarding this as well. Oliver does not let anyone else put his harness on or take it off, he only lets me do that. Along with that, if someone else is holding his leash - he won't walk...he just stays put until he sees me. It's just difficult because when he goes to a family member's house for dogsitting, he will not let anyone take off his harness and I hate to see his harness on him when it doesn't need to be.

Has anyone else had this problem? If so, how did you resolve it?

I'm thinking about possibly doing some positive reinforcement training with him and my family when it comes to his harness. So, when my family is trying to take off his harness or put it on, he'll get a treat and lots of praise so that he thinks its a good thing...what do y'all think?

That sounds like the way I would do it can not hurt.

Does he get aggressive if someone else tries to take the harness off?
