    Default pug harness

    Is it better to have a harness on pug if he is tied out to a dog ground stake while I am outside working...etc? I'm wondering if it is better to tie the lead to a harness rather than his collar so he doesn't pull on his neck too much? any advice would be great! Thanks

    I wouldn't tie him out at all, even if you're outside. Put him in an Xpen outside with you and walk with a harness, no collar.

    we have a HUGE secluded rural garden. So i need to move up and down it alot. There is a tree midway with a high branch i tie the end of a 30ft lunge rein to that and have barry in a harness so he can putter about.

    A cavet to the above:

    He is AWAYS in my eye line
    I never leave him alone EVER
    He's in an area that cant be seen or overlooked (loads of pug thefts here)
    He is only out for short times (i am either hanging out washing or doing some gardening for example)
    I am totally paranoid he's going to get tangled in the lead and hurt himself.

    So this is only done on occasion, not the norm.

    Like Samantha, I connect Minni and Oscar up to a tether when working outside using the same caveats.

    I'd suggest only ever tying a lead to a harness on a pug. They can wear collars for tags but always attach the lead to a harness, for normal walks too :)
