When you’re a pet parent, there are certain things about your pets and their lives that tend to become really important to you. The accessories they wear, the way their coats are groomed/style, the food they eat, the toys they play with- just to name a few. We’re pretty particular in our house about the collars, coats, and gear that our pups wear. We want them to be stylish and do the job they were designed to do.
Golly Gear creates and curates gear especially for the small breed dog. On top of that though, they take into account the fact that small breed dogs still come in a huge variety of shapes & sizes, something I feel most companies completely miss the mark on. Finding collars, harnesses, and pet coats that accommodate for a pomeranians uber puffy coat can sometimes prove to be a challenge. For that reason, Golly Gear has a harness picker on their website which helps guide you on the discovery of a new harness by simply answering a few direct questions.
After we answered a few questions, the best harness for Scooter was presented to us.
Is your dog fuzzy? (yes)
Is your dog an escape artist? (no)
Does your fuzzy dog wear a harness all day? (no)
Does he/she pull on the leash? (no)
It was recommended that we try the Dogline Comfort Rolled Microfiber Step-In Harness & Leash set for Scooter.
The rolled microfiber fabric is lightweight and easy to carry for me, and the rolled technique used while sewing the fabric allows Scooter to move in the harness freely without tangling or matting his hair- very important for a Pomeranian! We also love the step-in feature because there are no small head-holes to try to stuff all of Scooter’s fluff into, nor are there velcro straps or buckles/clasps of any sort- all things Scooter happens to hate.
This harness allows Scooter a lot of physical freedom in comparison to other larger body harnesses, and this is especially helpful for him as his handicapable legs do have a different range of motion than most dogs. Its easy enough to slip on and off quickly, something we haven’t experienced before.
We have been very pleased with this harness so far, and it’s nice to have something that Scooter looks forward to wearing as well! If you’re on the lookout for a great new harness for your pup, give the Golly Gear harness picker a try and see what they suggest.
