Advice on type of harnesses
I am looking at this website looking for a safe harness for Siu Pao. I have a step-in harness for him currently which I bought from the groomer (not buddy belt) but he pulls a lot during walks and I am afraid the harness I am using will hurt his neck or chest so I am looking for something safer than that. My question is, he is 7+ pounds and is still growing so I am trying to find out, is there a rule for bigger Yorkie on types of harnesses? Like there is vest harness, dri-fit vest harness, T-harness, which is the safest in terms of not hurting their neck and chest and if they pull hard, will the velcro ever come off? Also looking for the type that I can use during any season.

puppia is my favorite. no velcro and very stylish. it clips on so no worries it will come off. romeo wears them all year. they wash well and i feel they reduce pulling on the neck very well.

The safest type of harness are those that do not have straps that will come in contact with his delicate neck area. The step-in harnesses I make out of Dupioni Silk are incredibly strong, gentle on the hair and best of all, no part of the harness comes into contact with the neck area.

I make a nice H shaped harness, the velcro will not let go. I have one on my website. I can send you more pictures if you'd like, just PM me.
