Hello. I recently bought and viewed the leerburgs raising a working puppy. I'm nearly sure in the building engagement section they done work with a harness. A helper would hold the pup on a harness and Michael Ellis would walk away and call the pup. The helper would only release the pup after a few seconds of pulling.

What I would like to know is what is an appropriate age to start this training and what size harness would be suitable?

The reason the harness is used is to build frustration and desire. The harness is better for pulling whereas collars may deter a young puppy. Use the cheap-o-Depot harnesses from Walmart or petco because he'll outgrow them quickly. Once he's older you can move him to a higher quality leather agitation harness.
