Default Harness

Hi SM family,

I Just got Boo a jacket and was wondering If the harness should be under the jacket or ontop. I went for a walk with him with it under since the pet store said it was fine.. What do you guys think?

A lot of the coats and sweaters have a hole where the harness and leash will attach. Harness under if the clothes have the hole.

Default Harness

The coat I have for Sophie has a little hole for the harness loops, I personally like the look better when the harness is underneath.

I'm too lazy to take his little sweater off to put his harness on to put his sweater back on, so his harness is usually over.

I usually put the harnesses under things...

Except tshirts - those I put the harness over.

But bulkier things - sweaters, jackets - I put the harness under.

I have this odd fear that they will be able to slip out because of the added bulk... Especially Grace. She slips right out of her sweaters.

I put Mia's step in harness over her sweater...the sweater doesn't have any openings on the top for the leash clips.
