NO. There are many reasons not to use a harness on your puppy. During the first 2 years of life, the puppies joints are developing. When you put your puppy on a harness, you shift 20% more body weight onto the rear, rather than the front. This in turn can cause more issues with the hips and knees. It can also lead to poor and restricted movement on the front end, if the harness isn't well fitted. Lastly, a harness teaches a puppy to walk out in front of you. This can lead to the puppy believing it is the pack leader, and only leads to other problems in the future. Our goal is that you learn to train, not just restrain your puppy, by using the best tools for the job.
