Im so worried I signed up to a forum for help for the first time ever.
I got my dog a new harness and it was a little bigger than he needed because I wanted him to be comfy. But it has one of those slip over necks.
At first he seemed uncomfortable with it going on or off. Hed shake a lot to get out of it when I pulled it off. Then he started to yelp. Then each time the yelp got worse more like a cry when pulling it off.
This is only after about 1-2 weeks of use. And it took me some experiment to realize the normal new harness, $40 from Petco is the origin of this problem.
But now he wont just not leave his kennel unless I make him. He wont even take his foot off the dog bed for a treat he loves like a nibble of cheese.
His tail is tucked and stiff as a board.
And he doesnt want to play with anything.
I loved his personality and he was so playful and happy and always wanting tug of war.
I noticed this now for about a day and dont know what to do because I never saw him so hurt before.
