i madew mine out of vynl. just cut the shape out, no sewing
i copied the dimentions from ones for sale online, made for a beardie.
one website says the exact inches ect
but for my CWD i made it a bit smaller and stiched up the front a bit to hold him in tighter since they are so slim...
so it hugged his chest better

Default Walking your CGD

I def wouldnt I wouldnt put it in a harness and put walk it in me garden. It could pick up allsorts specially if you have dogs and let them do business in the garden. Even cats that aint ya own can do stuff in the garden let alone take it to a park.

I wouldnt risk the health of your dragon hun cause it could pick up allsorts.

it does them good to get them out... i really dont see the problem?
since real UV is 3 times better than a tube, i must be better
ok be careful about were you put him but really?
i have always taken my beardies and him out for a little trek.
so have many others here
iv never had an issue

best bet if you want it to have a run about is buy or build a 'rabbit run' type thing... Gives it room to run in the sun without the possibility of an escapee
