I never knew they were harmful :| I used to put one on Terry when I first started bringing him indoors, I didn't lead him round or anything with it just put it on in case he decided to run away I had something to slow him so I could grab him.. thankfully he never ran away I consider myself lucky!
I would suggest if you want to get them out for a run around/be close to them get an indoor run which you can sit in with them without the risk of them running away. :))

Hiya, Picnic and Babe were Sokel rescue guinea pigs that I was fostering. You adopted them from me on 12th June. Nice to hear from you again. Glad you have had second thoughts about the lead! :) xx
