Bo's New Freedom Harness
Bo removing his Freedom Harness.
We got a no pull Freedom Harness for Bo. It's quite the fancy harness. The chest strap has Swiss velvet on it to keep it from chafing your dog's fur. It has hooks in the front and the back for optimal control. As Bo grows, the Freedom Harness will help Austin maintain better control of him. The harness is pricier than most and is not sold at Petco, Pet Smart and other chains but it does have a terrific warranty against damage.
Austin and Bo will start a level one puppy class at the end of February. Austin will handle Bo and I will observe. Helen suggested this class even though Bo knows the level one commands, because it will provide an opportunity for him to learn how to work with Austin with the distraction of other dogs.
