Thank you for the warning, Jewel--I've never left a harness on him for an extended period before, so I never thought about that. I'm definitely going to try the martingale instead.

tiny...but fast!

You might try www.dogmalondon.com for martingales. Some times people call them sight hound collars or no slip collars. And lupine makes one as well.

It's all about- the love

You could also look on Etsy or Ebay. I just ordered a collar for Loki from Etsy. I looked everywhere for one but couldn't find one I liked for a boy dog.

How about training him to sit for you to put on his leash?

Whose bed?? Why- would YOU think- that?

The leash Max linked is lovely, but for a tieout, you don't want that pretty leash dragging on the ground. I'd get an inch wide Lupine and leave it on him. The clasp doesn't get in the way and the ring is big enough that it's easy to find. Lupine and Premier make nice Martingale collars, but I don't like Martingales for tieouts, only walking. The loop that hangs down could get caught on something outside or on the dog's teeth. Once when I forgot to take it off Lily, she chewed hers so I know her teeth can reach it.

I'm triple- superior MAD- now!

Does Lupine make a 1" collar for a small dog?

I wouldn't leave a martingale on a dog loose in the house let alone tied out. Artie has caught his jaw in his martingale a couple times but Max and Sassy never did. Max wears a loose rolled collar with tags all the time that can slip over his head and the martingale for walking. So much easier than clipping or strapping collars for us. He isn't a collar slipper so the loose collar works fine if we need him to go there NOW and lack the brain power to get him there nicely.

I agree with Isaac, you should train him to calm down and sit when putting on the leash, and exiting the house, heck, he shouldn't even pull on walks!
I know he's a 'little dog' and little dogs seem to get away with murder but when you have a baby in a stroller going one way, and a dog pulling in the other...it can be a bit of a mess! laugh out loud
