    Default Another harness question

    Topaz measures about 15 at the neck....21 around from behind her front legs

    What size do your guys wear??

    On the chart it says large...she's not a really big pug!!! Weighs about 19 lbs.

    If we're talking Puppia, large sounds right.

    Tucker's is a large too, it is a little loose around his neck but the girth is right.

    I meant to say that I also found a coat for my guys, real similar to the one on this website, Warm dog jacket with a sturdy leash built in. Great for winter walks with your dog.
    but ours has a double strap that cris-crosses at the bottom, wish we would have had it when we were in Minnesota, but anyway it fits really well and keeps them really warm. It kind of reminds me of a horse blanket but it's really easy to get on them and then I don't have to use both a harness and coat.

    I ordered the puppia harness in L based on measurement guide and it is way too big for Roxi, I reordered in M but kept the L since she is only 8 onths and still growing.

    No..I have heard nothing about that. A harness is what is recommended by vets...and most breeders.

    I do not believe in wearing a collar or a harness at all times tho...Mine only wear them when they are going for walks.

    Have you heard anyone say this before?

    I have bought Grover a harness in the past, but I keep forgetting to use it on him...they look like a much better way to walk them.
    I was told by a busybody at a show once that I should not have my pug in a harness. I told her that I would be changing him into his show collar for the ring as I thought she had the impression I was going to show him in a harness. But she said I should never use a harness as it would alter his posture.

    I took it as a load of poppycock. I don't see how a properly fitted harness can alter posture.

    That said, if you have a dog that pulls it is more comfortable to pull in a harness than a collar and regular pulling against a harness may, I suppose, build up muscle where you don't want it. However if you deal with the pulling you would not have that issue to worry about.
