How to Choose the Right Harness for Your Small Dog

 

Small Fit for Small Dogs 

First and foremost is a harness with a small fit that's designed for small dog breeds. Our harnesses are specifically designed to consider the unique needs and proportions of small dogs. They have a smaller chest and neck circumference, so they won't impede your dog's natural range of motion or cause any discomfort. 

 

Comfortable Padding 

The addition of comfortable padding is another important feature to consider when shopping for a small dog harness. Small dogs are often more prone to chafing, making padding a crucial factor in preventing discomfort. Look for harnesses with soft, cushioned padding around the chest and neck region, which will make them more comfortable for your small dog to wear for extended periods. 

 

Lightweight 

Another crucial aspect of a small dog harness is its weight. Since small dogs are less sturdy and muscular than their larger counterparts, they require a harness that is lightweight and easy for them to carry. Choose a harness that is made from lightweight materials such as mesh to reduce strain on your dog's body and look for designs with minimal hardware and buckles to further decrease weight. 

 

Additional tips for choosing a harness for your small dog: 

  • Consider your dog's personality. Some dogs are more active than others, and some are more prone to pulling. If you have a dog that is active and pulls on the leash, you'll need a harness that is durable and can withstand a lot of wear and tear such as the Complete Control Harness
  • Consider your dog's size. Not all harnesses are created equal, and some are designed for specific sizes of dogs. Make sure to measure your dog before you buy a harness to ensure that it will fit properly. Reference our size chart to find your perfect fit. 
  • Consider your dog's comfort. The last thing you want is for your dog to be uncomfortable in their harness. Choose a harness that is made from a soft, breathable material and that is adjustable to ensure a perfect fit. 

More Harness Tips: 

  • Have your dog stand up straight on all fours when using the harness. 
  • Make sure the harness fits snugly but not too tightly. You should be able to fit two fingers between the harness and your dog's body. 
  • Adjust the straps so the harness is evenly distributed across your dog's body. 
  • Ensure the buckles are secure. 
  • Be patient. It may take some time for your dog to get used to wearing a harness. Be patient, and don't force them to wear it if they're uncomfortable. 
  • Make it fun. Make walking with your dog a fun experience. Take them to interesting places and let them sniff around. 
  • Reward good behavior. When your dog walks well with the harness, be sure to reward them with praise or a treat. 

 

Once you've found a harness that fits your dog properly, you can take them for a walk. Start with short walks and gradually increase the distance as your dog gets used to the harness. With a little patience, you'll enjoy walks in no time!

FAQs

Yes, small dogs should wear harnesses instead of collars. This is because collars can put pressure on their delicate necks which can cause injury or discomfort. Harnesses distribute the pressure more evenly across their chest and back, making it a safer and more comfortable option for them. Additionally, using a harness while walking your small dog can give you better control over them compared to using a collar. 

It ultimately depends on the individual dog and their specific needs. Collars are generally suitable for dogs who do not pull on their leash and have no respiratory or neck issues. However, harnesses may be more appropriate for dogs who tend to pull on the leash or have respiratory or neck problems. Harnesses distribute pressure more evenly throughout the body and may prevent injury or discomfort to the dog's neck and throat. It is important to select a high-quality collar or harness that fits properly and does not cause any discomfort or chafing for the dog. Consult with a veterinarian or professional dog trainer for recommendations on which type of collar or harness is best for your particular dog. 

The measurements of a small dog harness vary depending on the brand and style of the harness. It is best to consult the specific sizing chart provided by the manufacturer or retailer to ensure a proper fit for your dog. Generally, small dog harnesses are designed for dogs with a chest girth measurement of approximately 10-20 inches and a weight of 5-20 pounds. Refer to our size chart to find your perfect fit. 

Dogs can start wearing harnesses as early as eight weeks old. It is always best to choose a harness that fits your dog properly and provides comfort and support as they grow. Factors such as breed, size, and activity level should also be considered when selecting a harness. It is important to consult with a veterinarian or professional dog trainer if you have any concerns or questions about the best age for your dog to wear a harness.
