    I found this article on PetCareRx that listed the following steps: slip the neck of the harness around your dog's neck and tighten the strap by pulling it. Next, put one paw through the chest hoop and finally, attach the strap to the hitch. The exact steps might vary depending on the type of harness you're using.

    To put on a standard dog harness:

    1. Calm your dog and stand, sit, or squat behind them.
    2. Slip the harness over their head, ensuring the D-ring is on the dog's back.
    3. Slip your dog’s leg through the harness's first leg hole.
    4. Buckle the harness and adjust the fit, ensuring you can slip two fingers underneath any strap.
