She’ll move if i dont hold it but she wont let me lead her
Answer by Sally B
Buy very light weight collar and leash and put it on her in the house and then let her just move around the house with it on. Don’t spend so much time trying to soothe her feelings. Just put it on and then go about your normal routine and let her adjust to feeling it around her neck and having the leash just trail her. Be sure the leash is short, light weight and the collar small and light weight. Give her a week of wearing it an hour or so at a time several times a day or evening. Then progress from there.
