Pit Bull Takes the GoPro Fetch Harness for a Test Run

Recently, I started an Instagram account for Baby Boo, my 7-year-old Pit Bull. Baby has had a Facebook profile for three years, so this seemed like a natural progression. And though Baby’s social media accounts are overflowing with pictures of her smiling that irresistible Pit smile of hers, I rarely post video footage. So when I heard GoPro was coming out with the Fetch Dog Harness, we were (OK, I was) excited to test it out!

The Fetch Dog Harness (MSRP: $59.99) allows you to mount your GoPro camera to your dog to capture the world from her point of view. I received the harness in the mail right before Baby and I left Washington, D.C., to spend Labor Day weekend with my family on the Eastern Shore, near St. Michaels, Maryland.

Baby loves the Eastern Shore: She has plenty of space to run, swim and, of course, look for Maryland blue crabs. So this was the perfect spot to test the new harness. But would she be as playful confined in a harness with a video camera on her back? 

With a bag of treats in hand for bribery, I removed the harness from its package and set out to fit it on her. I was surprised by how easily it went on. I barely had to offer her any treats. It was simple. But how did Baby feel? Watch the video to see her in action.
