It sounds like he's a little unsure of you and also may think it's part play at the same time.

Is it a harness that goes around both front legs and the belly? How does it fasten? Did you get the instructor to show you how to use it and fasten it properly?

Well you have to get him to trust you first. Don't just force it on him. Let him sniff it and explore it, show him it's okay to be near it that it's a good thing.

He'll 'try' to squirm but get it on him once, give him a treat and as soon as you get it on take him for a walk.

While you're getting ready say something like 'walk time', get him to sit and give him a treat.

It may be a struggle at first but once he associates that with his walks then you should have no trouble.

Yes it'll be tough at first like I said but show him that you're in control. Talk happy talk to him and try to distract him just long enough until you get it on him. Then once it's on, go for your walk. Nobody said it was easy!
