Jeweled dog harnesses

Dog harnesses are better to use for your dogs than most collars.  The dog harness gives you more even control over your dog, and if your dog tends to pull on the leash, harnesses will protect your dog’s neck.  This is very important, especially for small dogs whose trachea can be hurt by pulling on the leash attached to a collar.  Dog harnesses come in different shapes, sizes and styles.  One must be sure to measure your dog well so the harness is neither too big or too small.

There was a story some time ago about a dog that was left outdoors all the time, in rain or shine.  When the dog shelter went to investigate, the dog had a harness that was way too small, evidently, the owners put that harness on their little dog and never changed it, or really took care of the dog.  The dog was found almost cut in half by this harness that was digging deep into his body because the harness was for a puppy, and as he grew the harness did not grow with him  I say this to let you know how important it is to update and care for the harnesses and the dog.  If these dog owners had even given their pet a bath, they would have noticed the problem.

Dog harnesses are made of cloth, leather, and other materials.  The most beautiful ones are the rhinestone dog harnesses.  There are rhinestone dog harnesses that come in different colors and sizes.  There are light pink and hot pink rhinestones harnesses on pink ribbons, or there are black rhinestone harnesses on which you can choose to have clear, pink or red rhinestones on them.  So the black with the clear stones will look good on your boy dog and any pink will be great on your girl dog.  Of course you could use any color that you like.  We can make custom size harnesses.  These harnesses are heavy due to the weight of the stones, and therefore best used under supervision.

We can make matching leashes for your precious babies, and custom leashes with 2 or 3 rows of matching stones if you contact me.  I will also need specific measurements, so look for an email from me: evangeline5104@gmail.com

Dog almost cut in half by harness

I was reading this news item about a dog that was dropped off at the animal shelter who was almost cut in half by the dog harness.  The owner was tracked down and they found out that the woman never changed the harness that she placed on him when he was a puppy.  This woman left this dog out in the rain and never cared for him.  If she had held him or bathed him she would have known that the harness was cutting into his flesh.  When we choose to place a dog harness on our pet, we must remember to measure it correctly, and remove it when not in use.  The dog harness must be changed as the dog grows or gains weight.  In the case of the above dog, the harness had cut into the dog and the fur had grown over it.  We must measure the dog’s girth, that is around the body, just behind the front two legs.

We carry fancy dog harnesses and jeweled dog harnesses.  If you like hot pink or black the jewels are beautiful and with a matching leash, your baby will look marvelous.  Please be sure to measure the girth with a cloth measure and measure it snugly, so that we can adjust for comfort.  Always check the skin around the dog harnesses to make sure that the skin is not red or broken.  If there is any irritation, please remove the harness immediately.

Storms

Last night we had bad storms with lightening, thunder and flash floods. We had tornado warnings and thunderstorms. Kate just hates storms. She has to be held tight during the storms. There was no electricity either at their home, all night. When you cannot see your dog it is best to have a dog harness on so that you can keep track of where your pet is. A good dog harness will keep them safe and supported. Sometimes we like to use fancy dog harnesses or dog leads and harnesses together to keep your pet where you want them to be. If you have the dog harness on, and a lead when the storms come, you can get a hold of the lead and find your pet in the dark, to keep them safe. It is really important to keep our pets safe during storms so they will not get lost or hurt.

Dog not an accessory

My daughter decided to write today’s blog, because, after all Kate is her baby.

My dog is not an accessory!

 

I do, however, love to accessorize her! Sometimes small dogs get a bad reputation because people think they are merely accessories. This is a stereotype and not my reality. I do love dressing Kate up in designer dog clothes, dog sweaters, fancy dog harnesses and matching leads, as well as put her hair up in cute dog bows and designer dog accessories, rhinestone tiaras or clips. That still does not make her my accessory; it just makes her well dressed. Since I do not live in a dog friendly city like L.A. or New York City, Kate does not get carried around from store to store. She mostly just gets to parade around family gatherings or pose for the camera. And let me tell you, once I slip her into one of her designer clothes, she definitely puts on a show. I just know she feels extra cute when she is dressed up in her luxury dog clothes! I don’t have kids yet, so until then, Kate will satisfy my urge to buy designer dog clothes and matching dog hair barrettes. My co-workers laugh at the idea of me dressing my dog in designer dog clothes. Yet, when I bring pictures of my little dressed up princess to work, they ooh and aah over how cute she looks. Just one look at that precious face and you just can’t help but smile. So dog tee shirts and dog hair bows do not make her an accessory, but I would certainly carry her everywhere with me if I could, just because I love her so much!
