I want to get a harness for my crew but I don't know what to get. It has to be from online, as I am not allowed to go into Petco.. haha long story. Thanks!

i have a harness for Arias. It's made by Lupine which has an incredible lifetime warranty (basically, as long as you have enough of the harness/leash/collar left for them to ID it as theirs, they will send you a brand new one! and you can take it to any store that sells Lupine) You can order it on Drs.Foster & Smith or lots of other places ONLINE :Wink:

also, to get Arias used to it, I would put it on him and let him walk around the house. It was HILARIOUS at first b/c you would have thought i put him in a straight-jacket the way he was wobbling around. once he got used to it, every time i put it on him, I would take him outside or on a little adventure so he now correlates harness=fun! :BigSmile:

we are still working on the waking-on-leash part (well the part where he actually goes in the direction I want him to :LOL: ) but he now loves putting his harness on so that's a step in the right direction!

I was a manager there and I quit after a lot of drama. A few months later I went in and many of the animals had NO food or water. There was animal poop all over everything. The reptiles had moldy water ect. I took pics! I turned them into corporate. And instead of them getting in trouble, I got banned from the store. I feel bad for those poor animals. I have seen things. I hope petco here gets SHUT down. Anyways they called the cops on me last time I went in and I had to be escorted out while buying cat food. :ThumbsDown:

ETA: Walmart here doesn't have any harnesses. :(

Oh my gosh that is awful! Absolutely awful! Geez, they won't even ban thieves from the store for good. But, oh no, they ban people who are trying to do the right thing...such a shame :Sweat: :Cry:

I have seen so many horrible things. I don't even like to talk about it. It is why I quit. Yup not allowed in there because they don't want me turning them in for things. I would every time I saw something bad too. Which is easy there. I found a different pet food store but they only have one brand of cat food which is ok. We are very limited in pet supplies I either have to drive 3 or so hours or order online. lol oh well

Mug-y's harness is made by Pettitude and is really soft and comfy...plus it does up at the back so none of the going over the head dramas!!

Not sure if you can find Pettitude over there but it might be worth a google.

Bad news on the Petco thing! But good on you for doing the right thing....what a bunch of A holes!!!

Wow, Melonie, what a horrible experience, not to mention what a horrible store. You did the right thing eventhough no one listened. Sorry you were banned and that pet stores are limited in your area. Thank goodness for online shopping.

I was just coming to the forums to post this very question!
I bought Qwerty a harness today and he really doesn't like it. I'm wondering if it's the harness or if he just needs to get used to it.
I put it on him and had him walk around the house but he didn't even want to move. He crouched against the wall and would only move when I threw a treat. I'm afraid to take him outside in it yet.

When I got Snuffie a harness I took her to the store with me and had her try them on. The one she didn't flip out the most in is the one I got and it works great. Only gripe I have with it is it doesn't stay center on her body. It tends to fall to her left or right depending on which way she is walking.
