Q. How can I keep my Yorkie from being so nervous when I put the harness on ? She barks and grabs the leash. Has history of seziures.
A. A lot of dogs don't like the sensation of a harness going over the head. I would recommend trying a different style that they can step into and clips behind their back without going over the head. It works like the same harness but just does up differently. They look like this and most pet stores should carry them: http://www.bhg.com/shop/good2go-good2go-easy-step-in-pink-comfort-dog-harness-small-p4663e9d608e2de3ace9968c4983177f0.html
They are usually under the name "Easy Step Harness"

A. if she likes treats you can try giving her her favorite treats while you are putting the harness on, it might work as a positive reinforcement. Give her one last treat after you finish to put it on as well.
