Iguana harness

Mines just a baby right now but i would like to harness train him in the furture i was wondering if anyone knows of a really good harness that doesnt hurt their spikes, and has a sepperate harness and leash, i dont want him on the leash when he first wears it. in the books and sites they say its a good thing to have them harness trained but isnt normally needed i would like one for when he gets bigger and goes to the vet or out side or even to my parents house

what do you think?

i read that you can use a farret one when they get bigger but they can hurt their spikes and loose them, i just want him to be comfy and safe

Yea, I personally dont think there is any that dont have a risk of hurting there spikes..becuase they have spikes all down their backs.. and the harness goes acorss the back. but thats just my opinion

i herd an 8 type cat harness is great, the H one doesnt work as well because they can get out easy and when they are little you can get them a farret harness (from my vet tech)

I used a leather shoe strings tied together then I moved up to the ferret harness and on my two older ones I am using a small dog harness. I started when most of mine were young and it took about a month for them to get use to.

You may want to consider not using a harness for your iguana. It is not natural and cannot be very comfortable for the animal. If you are able to bond well enough with your pet, you may be able to take it outside without the risk of it running away. I don't recommend trying this with a young iguana though.

There is no such thing as a disposable pet

i dont think i would be comfortable taking him out ever with out a harness and lead on. i wouldnt make him wear it any other time than out side and the vet he actually has a spot where he has the spikes broken off already that might not cause him any discomfort to have the harness there... (they were broken when i got him.. along with a toe nail)
