How to choose harnesses for small dogs?
There are many types of harnesses available for small dogs and while choosing the best harness for small dogs, there are some points which you must consider regarding it, in proportion to your dog’s size:
- Standard harness: This harness is common and distributes the force felt on the leash while tugging against the chest and back of the dog. It works well for small dogs. But it won’t work for slightly larger ones as it makes them just pull harder.
- No-pull harness: As the name says, the harness will tighten a little when pulled. But the animal won’t feel the pull on their neck and instead will feel it in its front armpits. Watch for any signs of irritation or rubbing.
- The right size and fit: Different styles come with different fits. So make sure to measure around the ribcage of the dog before you buy anything. Also, check the packaging to know about the size.
These points will help you figure out which is the right harness for your dog.
