Yup, the harness is just for training! For teaching to heel. (Plus I am on the side of it taking stress off the neck)
And Apsel, I'm planning to only use the harness when walking, and have him off leash (therefore having the collar on too) if we are doing any running or stuff like that. Helpful thread tho!
