Let me know if it works, Tami. I've used Maya as my visual aide for Jolly's harness training, but Jolly remains unconvinced. I could've sworn he rolled his eyes at me last time! Lol!

How far have you gotten with his training?

Re: The Levi Diaries

Golly I just LOVE the visual aid thingy Tami! What type harness are you trying with Levi? And where did you get the "parrot" from?? ( That's the most important question )

Thatís probably exactly what heís doing.

I think it is. He was afraid of the harness until he saw me donning PJ. When I demo I talk through everything Iím doing as well. For the visual and auditory sensory input.

I was able to get the harness over his head. Than one session he freaked & it was a struggle to get it off. So, I put it on hold and only recently started back up.

Iím crossing my fingers to be successful by spring.

Ha
Itís the aviator harness.

I got the plush from Amazon when I first got Levi. This might interest you:

Re: The Levi Diaries

First outing this spring w/ my boy. The weather in the northeast was gorgeous today, 76

However, he wasn't overly crazy about his new backpack. So, it wasn't a long walk. It's a little smaller than the medium POB, but it was fine. I like the front window clear, so he has a better view.


I also like that the colors match Levi....

Okay Tami, you got me with the matching colors thing lol. He looks great in there. Yay Levi! It was indeed a beautiful day today. We're a bit more north and east, but still hit 70. Tucker had his first day out as well. Just a few minutes, but it was a great intro to being out there with the harness for the first time.

Re: The Levi Diaries

Thank You! Awww nice, the harness. I'm jealous, I don't think we're ever going to get that harness on. Even if we did, I'm sure he'll try and bite it off.
Did you post a pic? I'd love to see it.

Re: The Levi Diaries

Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures. I was so excited that he did it, and really nervous that it would stress him and make a negative experience out of it that I forgot to take any. As it turns out, it was much more an issue for me than him. He was great. Not that I'm a proud dad or anything...

If we EVER get another nice day, we'll definitely be out there. (and get pictures) Big if though. 40 and raining today. Nothing like 70 in the foreseeable future. :-(

Oh I get that. Okay, when it gets nice up there, I'll look forward to your pix.

How long did it take for him to accept the harness? I can get Levi's head through, but he takes it out immediately.
