Quality small dog harnesses
for your four legged friend

Small dog harnesses are often more comfortable than a collar, as the use of a collar can put strain on your dog’s neck and throat so you can imagine this could can cause problems. I personally feel

that many of the harnesses you can buy today are really smart and of course with the safety aspect to consider they are a good option.

The small dog breeds also have small necks with fragile throats so perhaps for a dachshund a harness is a good choice.

The Pressure is placed on the breast bone and not on the throat, there is also thought to be less pressure on the back as the pulling power of the dog is better distributed.


Fitting a Dog Harness

  • Ensure you get the correct fit by measuring your dog's girth, measure just behind the front legs, some harnesses have an adjustable strap that allows for the growth of your pup.
  • You will also need to measure the dog's neck this should be measured where a collar would sit at the base of the neck.
  • Ensure the harness neck opening is large enough to fit your dog's head through.
  • If you dogs measurements are between sizes it is best to go up a size.
  • Some harnesses are available with adjustment around the neck as well as the chest.
