Hi I want really sure where to post this so I put it here. I am getting a potbelly pig very soon. I will be getting him when he is 8 wdeks old (he will be neutered). I want him to be harness trained so how should I go about that? Also when should I start harness training him? And just for fun put any name suggestions you have (he is fully black). Thanks!

Just didn't want you to think that you were being ignored. I know nothing about pot belly pigs, nor harness training them. So I can't help but maybe someone else will be able to. This is a busy time of year and some members get sidetracked with busy season things and might not always be on here as regularly.
Our normal sized hogs got named according to their personalities most times.. or their purpose like pork chops... @Baymule 's granddaughters name hers and they are inventive!!!;):gig:lol:

Yeah, the granddaughters sure come up with some good ones! I would start harness training when you get him home. Pigs are smart and catch on fast.
Thanks. I figured I would have to start early but I want sure how soon I would have to start. Do you know what kind of harness i should use?
