Aversion To A Dog Harness: Debbie Martin on What To Do


Debbie Martin

Dog harness aversion? What the heck is that? Veterinary technician behavior specialist Debbie Martin on the national Steve Dale’s Pet World radio show explains. Martin is also a Fear Free teacher and advocate.

She discusses Chips Ahoy her new puppy who is, of course, cute as a cookie. Chip wasn’t so happy about his new harness. And thought harnesses of all kinds were the devil. Martin explains the old way and the new way of dealing with a problem like this.  It’s not only about the harness, it’s about being force-free and having a little bit of patience.

Both Debbie Martin and her veterinary behaviorist husband Dr. Ken Martin are co-authors of Puppy Start Right: Foundation Training for the Companion Dog.
