Help! Ziggy hates his collar
Ok so my little Ziggy hates his collar and harness. The collar is too big so i took it off, but the harness is (nearly) perfect size. I dont want to remove it for safety reasons. It has a bell on it so we can all hear him when walking and playing (dont want anyone astepping on him).
But as soon as i put it on him in the morning he gets upset, chews on it, refuses to play and gives me the stink eye!!
I have been looking for a small collar, havent found one yet, in the mean time, he has to wear this. Do any of you have advise on how I can get him to accept and surrender to the harness?

Whenever I put the harness on, I have treats in hand, and we begin to walk. I keep dropping treats and make him follow me, and try not to let them get distracted with the harness... squeaky toys help. As soon as he realizes he can do all the same stuff with the harness, and gets used to the feel of it, on he'll begin to ignore it.
Maybe try a break-away cat collar for the bells...
