Just try and find one that looks like it will be the most comfortable and best fit for your dog, or if you just don’t want to mess with any latches, get a step in leash.

While most dogs enjoy wearing a harness, some may be hesitant at first. If your dog doesn’t like its leash, try by giving them a treat. It should brighten up their view on the leash in no time!
