Is putting on your dog’s leash or harness a full contact sport? It doesn’t have to be. Think about training to take the drama out of walk prep. When Sirius could see, he knew how to walk straight into his harness or collar. He cannot do that any longer, but he still knows how to sit and wait for his leash to be put on. As with any behavior, start with slight improvements from where you are. Don’t expect to improve everything immediately.
