I have a Rat Terrier and I want to train him to loose leash walk but while I'm training him should i use a collar or harness? or harness just while walking? because he has a collapsed trachea so just collar irritates his throat, he chews through his mesh collar, and he gets scabs from wearing a regular harness. Thanks in advance.

Scabs from his harness?? Do you leave it on all the time or something? Sounds like it doesn't fit him right.

I would choose harness over collar because of his neck.

OK, I left it on all the time. Sorry. I see now. So i should keep his harness on during walks and take it off when we get home and just keep his collar on all the time for his tags?

Yeah, I would have his collar on all the time so he can have his tags. Put his harness on for a walk so he won't be pulling on his neck at all, and take it off when you get home.
