|YAY! It's here!|
Hi, all! Day 2 of Review Week! Oh, Lily Belle, Mom (well, Sugar) fixed Mom's phone screen with a repair kit she got off Amazon. It was only about $15!
Today I'm doing a review for the makers of the Hug-a-Dog harness. Here's what they have to say about their harnesses:
Finally, a comfortable-fitting harness vest that is easy on the dog and on the owner!
Made of cool, heavy-duty, poly knit mesh, this harness goes on easy with Velcro® closures — no straps to untangle. And no binding or scraping behind your dog's front legs.
A safety latch provides extra security.
A stylish harness vest with white or black mesh in a variety of trim colors. Also available in a number of stylish fabrics (click here to see them in a new browser window).
There are a lot of harness vests on the market now, but we were the first, and we are still the best. Each harness vest is made by hand (and sewing machine) in our workshop in northeast Ohio.
I actually got the Hold-a-Dog harnesses to review. It's the same as the Hug-a-Dog harnesses, but this one has a strap on the top you can loop a seatbelt through. Pretty cool, huh?
Hug-a-Dog and Hold-a-Dog harnesses are made by Doxie Delights, although their harnesses can be made to fit any breed! They offer either a mesh harnesses (like mine) or a fabric harnesses, with lots of options to choose from as far as colors and add ons. They offer options of adding an extra D ring for tags, reflective tape, personalization and patches.
My harness is sturdy black mesh with pink (I believe the color is called raspberry pink) trim. It has my name embroidered on the seatbelt/handle strap, velcro at the belly and neck, with a buckle (you know, the standard collar/harnesses quick release buckle.) at the neck closure, and a D ring on the top.There are a few things I wish were different, but overall I really like the harness!
The Hug-a-Dog harnesses, along with the Puppia you see me wearing in the header, are the best possible harness for a Dachshund, or any other breed with back/neck issues, to wear. Every vet and Dachshund owner Mom's talked to has recommended these to us!
I have heard that some people find the neck of their harness sits too high, but that wasn't an issue with mine. You do have to measure VERY carefully, though!
|It has my measurements on it. I was super skinny when I was measured for this, so I'm now 16" in the chest and 11" in the neck, but the harness still fits fine.|
|Matches Mom's nails!|
|Yes, Mom had to lay on the floor for this shot.|
Perfect and safe for Doxies!
The mesh style is perfect for FL
Lots of options

It has my name on it!
Strong and sturdy
Good customer service
Quick release buckle at neck
On the Hold-a-Dog harnesses, there's no velcro or anything to keep the strap from sticking up. We just tucked it under the D ring and fixed the issue, but having the option of velcro would be nice.
|What we did to fix it.|
I wish the buckle was a bit more sturdy
It would be nice if there was a buckle at the belly strap, too
Overall, I give Hold/Hug-a-Dog harnesses 4/5 stars and 1 1/2 paws up! Head on over, and tell em Nola sent ya!
