    Thistle and willow got a leash and harness each today in town, on the holiday, we just got back

    i tried it on thistle, slowly, slowly, getting her patted, with food, in her favourite place with little daisy by her side, to try to associate it with good things

    well she didnt like it much but i expected that, so i got it on, and left her for about 5 minutes, and took it off.

    i put it on gradually
    sitting it in front of her, draping it over her back
    putting her head through it
    and then doing it up

    well she was pretty good, but was that done well or should i do it differently???
