So, Thursday Jameson slipped his collar. We got him a harness. Sunday, he slipped his harness. We're now walking him double-leashed and his martingale will be arriving today. This morning trying to get him out of the house for his morning pee was absolute torture. I couldn't get the harness on him at all. He kept running away from me. I was trying not to chase him around (can't imagine that's helpful). Finally I managed to get ahold of him. I tried to put the chain collar on him that we've been using (because I don't trust the flat collar at all), and he snapped at me! He's never even bared his teeth before! He was fine if I put the chain collar down, but every time I picked it up, he started snapping at it. My husband came to help me. We finally managed to get the harness on him and walked him very, very, quickly with the harness and his flat collar on two leashes, but it was horrible, he was terrified, he bared his teeth every time the chain collar was in sight, and I was basically in tears by the time it was done. I'm terrified to walk him because I don't want him to slip free again, and by the time we get him into something we can somewhat securely take him out in, he's so worked up that he startles much more easily and it's this horrible self-perpetuating cycle. I just don't freaking know what to do, and I get more and more upset every time we have to do this, and I know it's not at all helping with his fear issues that we have to keep going through this several times a day just so we can go out to pee. I'm a step away from just getting wee-wee pads and never taking him outside, but I kind of feel like that's probably not the best solution either. I'm just sick of every attempt at a walk ending with him cowering in fear and trying to get away and me trying not to cry.
