I suppose you could try. I've never heard of that, and can't imagine doing it, but it wouldn't hurt to try. As long as you can find a harness small enough (and a Degu cooperative enough). Might look pretty darn cute!

When I was a kid I had gerbils. I would give them their own stocking at xmas time and I even had a harness that I bought for gerbils along with a leash. I would put the harness on and leash to let them run around the room w/o getting lost. It was very cute and funny...So I don't see why you could not do it to a goo.

I can't say I'd recommend it, I don't think you could actually keep it on .

But maybe your degus are calmer than mine, haha.

If you go to Pets At Home, they actually sell harnesses that would be small enough for a fully-grown goo. I bought one.. haven't tried it yet... might wait til my boys are a little tamer

If anyone gets one though- don't take them outside!!! They might get trod on or something o_O

i've tried to put a harness on the calmer of my 2 goos but she refused to have it put on her. she even squeaked loudly at me when i tried to put it on! i wouldn't recommend trying to put a harness on you goo as they don't like being confined like that.

Don't bother

I had the same idea. Mostly because Masala likes to come on trips with me and people get startled when he's just casually sitting on my shoulder unrestrained.

As the title says...Don't bother. Masala is a very chill goo and I have never seen him that angry. He cooperated for two fittings (both too large) but when we found one that actually fit he fought tooth and nail as though he was being murdered. Growled at us and bit. We got it on (it was almost on when he started to freak out) but I was forced to buy the darn thing and work on him an hour before I could get it off. Both myself and the petstore clerk got bit badly, and I felt like a horrible goo mommy. All I have for my troubles is open wounds and a useless harness. Masala is absolutely fine and calmed down as soon as I finally got the thing off him. Maybe if you work on them from birth, placing things against their neck, you could get them used to a harness but it's just too frightening for them.

....just wanted to pop in here and say "hi" Nagichan! Haven't seen you in forever!!!
I agree, if you started from a very young age would be easier, than trying something new on an older pet.
