The Best Harness for a Pug
Why Get a Harness?
Pugs can be headstrong little dogs. They love to pull and tug on their leashes, and they can be very stubborn. Especially while they are still training their pug, some owners like to feel confident that their pug's throat isn't being injured by the pulling on the leash. Although pugs also do well with collars, the pressure gets distributed along the shoulders when they wear a harness, while it is concentrated at the throat with collars.
Harnesses can be great for pug dogs because they are more comfortable than collars. They can also help during training because many of them are "no-pull," meaning that the leash connects in front. If the dog tries to run ahead, the leash will pull him around so he faces you.
I personally think that the Puppia brand makes a great choice because it is so soft and won't chafe or rub on your pug's skin. They also come in many stylish colors, so the pugs and look sweet and charming.
Though they sometimes wear small sizes, A pug should usually wear a medium or even large sized harness, because their chests are so broad. Before you buy a harness online, you should take your pug's measurements and compare it to the sizing guidelines for the specific harness. You should also take into account how adjustible the harness is, how much your pug weighs, and whether he or she is fully grown.
