When we are on the boat, Huck wears a harness and this is on top of his PFD (personal floatation device) although the PFD covers the harness. The one thing you have to remember with a harness is that it can slip on them fairly easily. Huck fell overboard once (we were at the dock and he didn't have his PFD on - it really is unrealistic to have him wear it 24/7) and pulling him out with his harness was tricky as it came right up over his shoulders and head. We now know to grab it, twist abit, and THEN pull up. That keeps it from coming up over his head. When walking him though, I like the harness cuz' I'm not pulling on his neck and/or choking him and I have more leverage. I can actually move his whole body to jump start him moving in the direction I want to go.
