My puppy is growing. Her new harness is a bit big but the old one was getting too tight. She is in the in between stage. She must weigh around 18 pounds because the small harnesses go up to that weight and the next size starts at 18 pounds. This means she has gained 7 pounds in one month.
I prefer using harnesses to collars. Especially on chows since they have such a huge mane.
We are holding a large New Year's party so everyone can meet Winnie. She will be in heaven. She loves all people! What a difference it makes getting a puppy from a good breeder. Winnie's breeder kept her in her house with her family from birth. She got used to being in a kennel as the family went about their business. She learned how to entertain herself and how to greet people when someone showed up at the breeders home. I also didn't pick her up until she was 9 weeks old so she had plenty of time to learn things from her mother and her litter mate. She is a very well behaved puppy.
