Do you know how to properly put a dog harness on?
A second downside to this type of collar is that according to a study in the Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association in 2006, pressure generated when dogs pull while wearing these collars raises the pressure in the eye. As a result, it may worsen the clinical signs or disease progression in dogs with glaucoma, thin corneas, and other eye conditions where the pressure in the eye is an issue. So dogs who have or are prone to any of these conditions should either be trained via a non-force-based method to walk on loose leash and never pull or they should wear a harness or halter type of collar (which we cover below).

How to Fit Your Dog in Your Harness once it Arrives
The first time you put the harness on your dog, it’s easier to separate the front half from the Hip Lift portion. The more you use it, the easier it is to put on. Use only on dogs as an aide in lifting or restraining. The dog harness will need to be adjusted to properly fit each dog’s dimensions. Follow sizing instructions and refer to the diagram. Do not leavethe dog lifting harness on a dog for over-extended periods of time–use it as needed and then take it off. Loosen straps especially if your dog wants to lie down in it, to help prevent hot spots, any chaffing or overheating with sensitive skin. Take it off at night and let your dog sleep without it. Use proper care and clean regularly.
