I always used to use a collar but a few days ago i put ozzy on his collar and when i pulled him into the house i must of pulled too hard - bad mommy- and he started making the most awful noise and I didnt know what to do I was just pannicking and saying - oh please stop - Im a bloody nurse for gods sake I deal with emergencies every day but my mind went blank, later on when he had stopped I put it down to the collar so now I am just going to wear a collar for show and a harness to walk him.

do you make all those collars and leads they are so cool- do you ship to the uk :wave:

Puck wears a red-leather spiked collar for his tag at all times, in case he manages to escape or something, but I (nearly) always use a harness for walking him.

Not only does it keep him from putting too much pressure on his neck when he pulls, it saved his life from a big dog because I had to pick him up with his leash with it once. Not something to do too often on purpose, but it can be done in a pinch.

I would simply use the harness, but I haven't found one with a good place for a tag...and it seems like it would be uncomfortable to wear all the time.

neither

I dont do collars cause of their delicate throats. I never did a harness. I carry them when we go away or put them in a tote. I have a fenced yard so they run there.

ozzys mom- are you talking about my website??? I dont remember posting it anywhere except my profile.

If you are - I think I can ship to the uk- I would need to find out about shipping. My website is not fully functional yet. There is one page on the site that I am thinking about taking off- I think it is the page with the most harnesses. The manufacturer is slow with their communication.

There are still more collars that I need to add.

I do not make anything on the site yet. I am in the process of making doggie tshrits and beds. I am going to have a line of human/dog matching shirts that are "modern", birthday shirts for dogs, and saying shirts for dogs.

I am also going to have beds. I designed a few. I am actually going to the seamstress today so you will see them soon.

Sorry if you were not talking about my website and I overloaded you with info!

I use a harness on Mindy.
Montana hates it so I use a collar on him, but I do like the harness much better for Chis.

the step in harness are great! there is only 1 clip.It is so fast and easy.
Rico and lola both have one in black.

The harness also rides low on the collar bone so it does not go directly on the neck.

There are also double clip harnesses. Rico and lola have one of these too! These are really nice because there are more colors. 1 leg goes through and it clips on! Do do not have to slip it over thier head and adjust.

The regular harnesses were too much of a pain for me!

I love the two types that I offer- they make life so easy! Rico and lola like it too. They raise thier paws when thier arms need to go in! They know the routine!

harness/collar

I never really have taken them for a long trip or anything. Mine are paper trained so i guess i would just put papers in a kennel and take in the back with me.

Kemo wears a collar for ID purposes and a harness to go outside but even with a harness he can pull too hard and he makes that sound. Their trachea collapse....that really bothers me about the breed, his reverse sneezes and the collapsed trachea....very scary sometimes. You are suppose to cover their noses and then they should open their mouths which helps it go back but Kemo would just rather suffocate he wont open his mouth! dumb pupper :(
