Shopping for your Chihuahua?
Chihuahuas are sassy and full of life and that's why we love them so much! Shopping for a harness for your beloved Chihuahua shouldn't be challenging. In summary, the most important things to remember when shopping for a harness is soft, breathable, safe, durable, multiple-points of adjustment, dual leash attachment points and non-constricting in the neck area.
Chihuahuas as well as other small breeds are prone to tracheal collapse. As such, non-constricting harnesses are preferred over a collar when walking your dog. In other words, collars are okay for everyday wear just not preferred when walking your dog on a leash as this can put unwanted pressure on your dog's neck.
Similar to many other breeds, Chihuahuas like to pull on the leash. A no-pull harness is a must for dogs who like to pull. Harnesses that have dual leash attachment points allow you to train your dog not to pull. You can attach the leash to the front of the harness and this will help train your Chihuahua not to pull. Once trained, attach the leash to the back of the harness and you are good to go.
Our walk gear checks all the boxes above from soft, durable, safe and breathable to multiple-points of adjustment, dual leash attachment points and non-constricting in the neck.
