Yosuke (yo-skay) is my English cream mini-dachshund. He takes up almost all of my time outside of work, and I love it.
|Playing outside. So pretty!|
We are trying to find the perfect harness for our little guy, but just can't find one yet. He is almost done growing, only a teeny bit left to go. He currently weighs 9.3 lbs. We love to take him on walks, but hate the traditional collars (like he has on above) for walking. They look great, but that is it.
Yosuke -- Mom says I can't wear my collar anymore for walks. Which is good with me. I always try to pull out of it, because it doesn't fit me well and I don't like wearing it. The collar thing that went around my legs was NOT okay. It slipped around too much on my back and took too long to put on and it was hard to get off.
Here is the one harness we did buy so far:
This harness is terrible! The loop where the leash ring (D ring) and back adjustment strap goes through (on the left side of the picture) was huge. I had to sew it shut about a 1/2 inch before it would stop sliding around. It was such a pain to get on him too - only one clasp on the back and it always ended up on his side or belly not his back. The red one only cost $6.99 for an xsmall at Meijer, but it wasn't even worth that. After trying to make it work for a few weeks, we gave up and threw it out.
We liked the idea of this harness though. Simple, easy to adjust, very inexpensive (perfect for a growing puppy), made of nylon (super durable), not bulky and tons of colors to choose from.
So now we are attempting to find one that not only he likes, but we like. Yosuke is always too intrigued by the hamsters,
conveniently located by the harness/collar isle, at the pet store to have him fitted. So for now, the
collar stays. Any recommendations? Happy Sunday!
