I've used both and I like the harness; however, I had Zeus' harness on him and when I took it off to give him a bath I noticed it made the hair around the harness very course. It wasn't tight by any means (could put 2 fingers under it). Now, I don't have anything on him until I can figure something out. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I just measured rico and lola. Lola is about 12.5 around and rico is a bit under 12. They both fit in the teacup harness. He is just at the end of the expansion. Rico is a skinny dog. If your dog is bigger i would go bigger. I can always exchange it, but you would need to send it back. think about it.

I really would be interested in those collars too.
Both my babies are 5.5lbs.
So they are not extra small.
What size would they need????

Oh I have tried that, believe me, they say their are meds but I am not interested. It's very weird sometimes he goes awhile w/nothing and then he will do it several days in a row. Do you have any "pattern" like that? :?:

I am going to use a harness because of the little neck.
I just can't find one small enough!

I had collars on my other dogs but they were MUCH bigger.

I always use harness when I walk Mocha and Beetle. They both wear a collar w/ a bell on it so I know where they're. And I'm lazy, I don't take off their collars when I walk them, so you'll see them wearing both the collar and the harness when they're out.

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.
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.
I agree---collar for tag I.D., harness for walking. :)

I put a collar on my chis when they are pups so they get used to a collar, but they usually do not wear a collar unless they are going away and I need to leash them. Most generally they go outside with me and the only time they stay outside is in their run. They do not stay in the run if I am away, I am too worried that someone will help themselves to one of my pets. Right now, Dora goes up to anyone and wants to be held. So everyone is in the house when I am gone...
