Rating The best harness!
The vet recommended a harness for my dachshund. I tried a number of different ones, both from the pet store and online. None of them even came close to the quality and fit of the Hug-A-Dog Harness! It doesn't pull or put pressure on his back or neck, is easy to get off and on, and very sturdy! Thank you for making such a great product!

We've used these harnesses for our doxies since discovering them years ago on the internet. We're on our third one for our black and tan, Bailey, and are completely satisfied with its design, and functionality. Our older doxie, Macy, passed away last year at 15 years of age. We've got two harnesses we plan to return to Dachshund Delights so that they can be reconditioned and sent out to needy dachshunds. We'll continue to purchase these harnesses as needed. Best one we've ever seen on the market anywhere!

I don't have a dachshund but decided to order the harness anyway--best decision ever! I wish I could include a photo. Great overall fit but best of all no pressure on the throat when out for a walk. Thank you so much!!

I am completely satisfied with the harness. It fits perfect and my Beagle seem to like it too--she seems to not even notice it and can still roll in the grass with it on. I feel better about walking her now because the harness is much better for her back problem (Intravertebral Disk Disease). Thanks for making it to fit so perfect.

Excellent quality and fit for our dachshunds! We now have purchased 3 vests over the years. The oldest vest is 13 years old and still in great shape! My dogs should age this well. I highly recommend.

Rating Best harness for a doxie
I've purchased 3 of these harnesses over the years. These are the only harness that my doxie can not pull or walk out of. I've tried many others and they just don't work for those short legs and barrel chests. These work great in my doxie's car seat. In fact, I keep one permanently hooked to his car seat since he rides so much - just incase he doesn't have his house harness on. I wash (air dry) mine quite often and they hold up well.

Rating Best harnesses ever!
I recently placed an order for what I believe is at least the 14th (maybe more) harness that I have placed over the last decade or so from Dachshund Delights. I would never use another harness on my Doxies. My recent order was for my daughter's new Dachshund pup. Since I own the parents of the pup, it was a pretty safe bet to know what size he would eventually need and ordered it a bit larger than what he is right now. When I use them, I leave the neck portion of the harness attached but loose enough so that it can slip it over the dog's head when putting it on. That way, I simply attach the velcro under their belly and away e go. It couldn't be easier. These harnesses are also very comfortable for the dog and wash up easily in the washer and dryer (they get softer, too). I have always ordered the black mesh with different color trims for my 5 longhair Dachshunds. (We color code the dogs to make it easier to tell whose harness belongs to whom.) I also have their names personalized on the vests. This company is wonderful. The harnesses have always been the same great quality, too. They are much better for the dogs' backs as there is no tugging on their necks. There is no way you won't be happy purchasing one of these for your furbaby!

This is the 2nd harness I have purchased and I love them! Quality is superb, the first one I purchased years ago and it has held up after washings and much use-still looks brand new! The fit was perfect, it's easy to follow the measuring guidelines. So many fabric/color choices! A MUST HAVE for all dachshunds!

This is the only harness I trust that my doxie's cannot get out of it. It leave me with a safe feeling when walking my dogs. I purchased this one for a foster dog that got his forever home ( but it was on a busy street without a fenced in yard ) I sent him with one of mine ( which I've had for 12 years and still good as new)and when his came in we stitched them out. I wanted to know he was safe when he was taken out for his walks . I LOVE THIS PRODUCT AND HIGHLY AND ALWAYS RECOMMEND THEM. It is will worth the $$ to know my fur babies are safe and as I said they last forever Georgia got her's 12 years ago.

This is our second Hug-A-Dog harness for our miniature longhaired dachshund. We wore the first one out after two years of hard usage, and when it came time to buy a new harness, I looked around the marketplace but never found one that looked or fit as well as this one. We ordered our second one, have had it now for two months, and are completely happy with it. It fits Callie well, and the design works well, keeping her under control yet not putting too much pressure on any one part. We are very pleased return customers!

We bought this harness as a summer harness for our little Moose. It can get quite hot and humid here in the Great Plains. She also has a fabric and mesh harness for fall and winter, a coat for the winter and a premier DreamSack. As has always been our experience, the quality of all these items is first rate and the workmanship is excellent.

I am so happy with the white mesh harness I ordered recently for our new rescue dachsie, Frankie. He is a "darter," and even when he's on the leash, I never know when something in a different direction will catch his attention, causing him to try and dart over to see something different. The harness not only looks very smart on him, but most importantly, keeps him secure on the leash regardless no matter what. It fits perfectly and the mesh is also cool to wear, so important during this hot and humid summer. I have used one of your black mesh vests on my older dachshund for several years now, ever since his back problems a few years when we first discovered your products. It is holding up very nicely and keeping its shape despite frequent use. Thanks so much for your vests! (Love the rain coats, too!)

I have purchased so many harnesses for my dog with no success. She had managed to pull herself out of every harness previous to the hug-a-dog harness. I have so much relief knowing she is now safe! This is the only product I have found that has custom measurements for chest & neck as opposed to sizing in small, medium & large. The fabric is mesh, so it's light & breathable. Basically, it is the best!!!!

I love you harnesses. We are on our third one and third color. My little guy gets so excited when he hears the harness come off the hook. Other walkers always comment on how cute he looks in his (outfit). Can't wait to wear another one out so we can get another color. However that usually takes a few years. Diane C.

I have a rat terrier and a mini dachshund. Both are experts at getting out of harnesses! I bought my first Hug a Dog Harness for my doxie, as she was the worst offender. It worked! She couldn't slide out, the key is making sure the harness is not too loose. Here in Florida, I use the mesh harness for comfort from the heat. They fit comfortably and once our dogs got used to wearing them, they get excited when I get them out for a walk. Thank you for these wonderful safe harnesses!

This harness fits perfectly, which makes wearing it so comfortable. There's never any pull or choking on the throat, easy-on & off, and it's stylish as well as practical. I love that it doubles as a great car seat-belt friendly harness, as well. Must have at least one, preferably a collection.

I have ordered many of these harnesses over the years (I have a house full of weiners) and have never been disappointed. The harnesses are superior quality, fit perfectly, prevent stress on my dog's back and neck and look great on them, too.

You can't go wrong ordering from this company. The others are just not the same!

After trying to fit my miniature Dachshund with a harness and failing miserably, I decided to order this harness. I LOVE it! It fits him perfectly and looks great. I've washed it several times now, and it washes very well. I'll probably order a second one to rotate with this one and a fleece or coat as well. I would and have recommended this harness to friends with dogs who aren't Dachshunds. Nothing beats a harness that fits perfectly. Thanks!!

This harness is just awesome! After purchasing several different types of collars and harnesses I was convinced I would never find something for my dachshund puppy that pulls constantly. This is the answer to my prayers!! The harness fits perfectly and I no longer have to worry about his neck when he pulls. I am really impressed with the quality of this product and recommend it highly for anyone with a dachshund so that you can protect the neck. I am so happy with this harness that I have already ordered another in the fabric - mesh combination. You won't go wrong with this one!

There is no substitute! I bought my last pair 11 years ago, and with hiking, biking, swimming, kayaking, living in 3 countries and 4 states, we finally decided to upgrade. We put them to the test!! My new pair still have the same high quality, fantastic construction, and fit perfectly, which is hard for barrel chested dachshunds. My boys never tug at them like they might be uncomfortable, the will even take naps with them on. I was thrilled when I found them 11 years ago, and would have never considered any other harness.

Thank you for the perfectly fitting harnesses. The boys,Freddie and Alfie look very smart in them.Dachies always have the Ahhh factor but with their new harnesses they always get stopped and admired With no buckles under their armpits they are now free from any chaffing and soreness that they experienced with other harnesses. I feel I need to draw attention to the extra cost incurred on buying from outside the UK Although we knew to expect a tax coming into this country we were not expecting the additional payment of £8 from the PO for collecting that tax payment so UK residents please beware. That said we the dogs and the owners are extremely pleased with our purchase and the speed at which they arrived.
