The best time to start harness training is as a kitten, but you can also train older pets. Be patient, it will take a bit of doing.
- Get your kitty used to the harness. Play a bit with it – open and close the Velcro – and then gently begin placing it on. Once used to wearing it and having you put it on – let them wear it indoors without a leash attached.
- Next, indoors – attach the leash and let your cat get used to walking around the house with the leash and no tension. Just dragging it around.
- Once you see he’s comfortable with the leash attached – gently pick it up and put a bit of tension. Walk first in the house.
- Go Outside – maybe in a contained area to start.
