Best Chihuahua Harness Buying Guide & FAQ

What to Look for in Harnesses for Chihuahuas

When opting for a harness for your Chihuahua you need to think about a few things. Firstly you need to opt for a model that fits your pup perfectly so that they are super comfortable and secure. Since they are such little pups you want to make sure that they are always safe and securely held. You'll also need to think about what kind of harness you want to opt for. You can choose a conventional clip on harness, or a step-in model. These are usually much easier to step into. Some models are also padded and add extra insulation and warmth. These models are great for colder climates and will keep your pup snuggly and warm.

Different Types Of Harnesses For Chihuahuas

  • Traditional Clip Harness: These harnesses are often a little trickier to get on, but once clipped in place they offer comfort and security. Since they are adjustable you can fit them to your pup’s unique size.
  • Vest harness: These are usually padded and often easier to put on and take off. They offer some insulation and are goof for keeping smaller pups secure.
  • Front steering harness: Some harnesses have a specialized attachment ring at the front to make front steering easier. This can help while you’re training your pup not to pull.

How To Measure Your Dog for a Harness

When it comes to buying your pup a harness, or even a jacket, it’s important to measure them correctly. You want your harness to fit them snugly, but you don’t want it to be too tight as this could restrict their movements or even hurt them.

You need to measure their chest. Measure the widest part of their chest. This is the part behind their armpits.  Since doggies move around, measure it three times to ensure that you’ve got the correct size. If your pup is between sizes, always opt for the slightly larger size to avoid the harness cutting into them.

NB: Always utilize the two-finger rule. Pop to fingers underneath the harness to ensure it isn’t too tight.

Best Chihuahua Harness FAQ:

Q: How do I choose the appropriate size harness for my Chihuahua?

A: Always follow the sizing guide for the particular brand you are choosing. Sizes won’t be uniform when it comes to choosing a harness and thus you need to ensure that their particular size will match your pooches measurements. If your pup is between sizes, opt for the slightly larger size and go for an adjustable model that will allow you to fit it to your pup’s unique shape.

Q: What is the best harness for a teacup Chihuahua?

A: Front clip harnesses are great for training, but your little teacup Chihuahua might get tangled in it, so a back attachment is probably a better idea. Fabrics like polyester are light and won’t add any extra weight to your teacup Chihuahua.  Also opt for a model with a lower neck so that it doesn’t put any pressure on your pup.
