Dear Dachshund Delights
Just wanted to thank you for your
great service and dachshund products. I recently purchased a
Hug-A-Dog harness for one of my 3 dachsie babies and I am very happy
with it. Otto looks very handsome in it and didn't fuss at all
when I put it on him. He has a delicate trachea and coughs with regular
collars on him. I also purchased Snap-A-Dannas for all 3 of
my darling dachshunds and they are so cute!! Thanks again for your
dedication to dachshunds and I look forward to purchasing more products
in the future.
Oh, thank you so much for the Hug-A-Dog coat. It is absolutely
perfect and covers my little one's back perfectly. He is doing a lot
and we hope he's on the way to recovery from his autoimmune disease. I
will take a photo of him as soon as he stands still long enough to do
for he is so proud of himself in it. You all are just the tops for
coming through so quickly to our aid. Bless you all.
We made a cloak without fleece for this dog – he has some skin problems
and his mom wanted something that would protect him but not be too warm.
Thank you so much for being a sponsor for the NC Wiener Roast last weekend. We all had a blast and a good bit of money was
raised for the Doxies! You guys are great for helping such a good cause. We have several of your harnesses and love them. They
are the best made that we have found. Just placed another order! Thanks again.
It could have been a nightmare of all nightmares but it turned into a
I took Gabbey my little mini doxie with me to the bank and to PetSmart. I
rarely take her anywhere but she likes to go but is a very nervous skittish
little doxie who probably had a hellish life before me. She's tiny and around
11 years old. I put her in my single dog bed up in the front seat of my van.
Of course, she had her harness on. We got to the bank and I put her in a
critter tote and we went in the bank. She didn't seem to be comfortable in
the dog bed so I put her in the crate in the back. We got to PetSmart and I
walked her to the store and put her in the baby seat of the cart. She's
afraid of any loud noises. We walked around the store and I had my hand on or
near her the entire time. I checked out and when I was walking out of the
store with her in the cart, she leaped up and right out of the cart. She was
heading for nothing but concrete.
Don't ask me how but I grabbed the leash and
she ended up dangling there actually swinging from the leash. I was in such a state of shock that she
actually leaped like that so unexpectedly, I think I held her in the air for
about 5 seconds before putting her on the ground. If she had a collar on, she
would have surely choked to death. If I didn't grab her, she would have hit
the ground and depending where she hit would have either cracked her head
open, broken a limb or worse, or been paralyzed. But the end result was we
walked to the car. This is not the first time these harnesses have kept my
dogs from being seriously injured. I guess I won't be putting her in any
When I was walking into PetSmart a lady admired Gabbey's
harnesses (the red Hawaiian one). She asked me where I got it and I told her I sell them to
raise money for my rescue. She said "oh I have a Yorkie and I'd love one." I
gave her my card, told her what measurements I need and she said she'd call.
I took a double dapple to a foster home yesterday. Of course, the first thing
I did was put a harness on her. When we got to the foster home we put a
collar on her and the guy tried walking her. She nearly pulled her head right
out of the collar. I cannot walk a dog with a collar on.
By the way, if you ever have
any used ones that you can spare, I could give them to my foster homes to use while the dog
is there. I'm a nervous wreck with collars and try to remember to put a name tag on the dog
in case it gets loose or out of the collar.
Wishing you happy healthy pets.
As a surprise to my mother I ordered a harness for our adopted dashie, Annie.
Following the advice of the adoption agency we got her a harness to use for
walks in lieu of a collar to attach the leash to. However, I noticed that the
nylon harness kept rubbing Annie raw and was becoming very uncomfortable for
her. After searching the web I came across your site. Of all the other
websites that sold dashie specific harnesses I noticed that your harness was
the only one that had a buckle in the front and asked for measurements of your
dog. That is what sealed the deal for me. We have now had the harness for two
weeks and what a difference. You can tell Annie is more comfortable in her
harness and it fits her rather nicely, even our Vet likes it. Thanks again.
Just wanted to drop a note to let you know how thrilled we are with our
purchase. The workmanship is outstanding and the design for Bailee (our
yorkie/peke) is too cute! I wasn't sure what my husband would think of the
ruffles since he walks her a great deal, but he loved it! Sammy's Black & Red
outfit is great, although next time will order it a bit
shorter (from neck to tail). He's a bit stocky for a Chi (he was a
rescue and tends to eat everything he can get to - we are working on that); we
put the harness on him and called him "Sammy Soprano". We
decided next time to have "Bad to the Bone Sammy" put on it. It took
a while and lots of love, but he is part of the family now. Bailee is "big
sis" and protects him fiercely - somehow its like she knows what he went
As you can tell, we are dog lovers. Thanks for a quality product - worth
every cent. We are moving to the Netherlands this Fall, so I may place
another order before we leave. If I forget, do you ship overseas? If not, I
have a son here that we could have it shipped to then he could forward to us.
No matter. THANKS!!!!
We received [the harness] and it is just adorable on our Jack Russel, Olivia. She
likes it better than anything we have used to walk her and it is so easy to
put on and take off. We are extremely pleased with it and plan to order
another one, probably in mesh since the summers here are so hot.
This past week, we received our Premier DreamSack, and our two mini
wirehairs LOVE it! They knew IMMEDIATELY that it was for them. Once they
got the tip of their noses just under the lip of the top cover – they
torpedoed themselves right in. Thanks for a quality product (just like
their Hug-A-Dog Harnesses).
Leslie S. (And Frankie And Ollie)
Received the beds. They are a perfect size and Stella and Max just
love snuggling in them! They are such perfect beds for our little
burrowers! Thanks so much for your "no hassle" exchange and for such
Just wanted to let you know I received my Hug-a-Dog harness and they
are wonderful. Thank you so much. I will refer you to all of my dog
I just wanted to say how delighted I am that you are using a photo of
my darling Amy wearing her gecko print harness as one of the images for
solid fabric harnesses! I have used your great harnesses for years for
my Brandy and Amy. I don't need any harnesses at this time, but just
wanted to say hello and let you know that I give your website address to
lots of my dog-owning friends.
Hi! I just wanted to let you know that I got my dog Mika a dreamsack
for Christmas. She absolutely loves it. I think this is one of the best
purchases I've ever made. Besides the harness of course. Love that too.
Anyway I just wanted to let you know I'm very happy with your products.

I received "Gypsys" new winter coat late yesterday evening. I knew
this thing was going to be pretty,but,WOW! This coat far exceeds any
other coat in the pet stores. I even bought one from my favorite online
pet supply website, Drs. Foster & Smith. The small was too small
& the medium was too big, so having a custom made one just for her
is well worth every penny. The dreamcatcher fabric with the yelllow trim
is so pretty, it's unlike any other product out there. This is our 3rd
harness so far, but I have a feeling the I will be getting another one
in the spring.
Willow's harnesses arrived yesterday afternoon and she is delighted
with all three creations! My little sausage girl now has something to
wear for autumn, the holidays and early spring. The substitute pattern
for "Heart Filled" is just as cute – no returnees here!
I wanted to let you know that the hug-a-harness saved our little mini
dachshund’s life! A few weeks ago we were taking Roxy for a walk when
she stopped to sniff a tree
for a while. Next thing we know, a fellow dog owner yells over to us to
watch out as his gigantic dog comes racing over full speed
ahead. It was not a
friendly visit. Before we could pick her up (it all happened so fast) he
had Roxy is his mouth and was shaking her viciously while she screamed
in terror. My husband
and I frantically tried to free her. I pictured her completely mangled.
Luckily, I think the mean dog had the harness in his mouth instead of
her skin. I have no
doubt if it weren’t for the added barrier that the harness gave us, she
would have been a bloody mess. Luckily, Roxy did not have a single
scratch on her and still
enjoys socializing with other dogs. We had a very happy ending and I
wanted to express my thanks to you.
We received our harness last week and I want to tell you what a
wonderful product you have. The ease in which you put the harness on and
off is worth
it's weight in gold. We took our doxie Malcolm for a recheck yesterday
following ventral slot surgery and every single person, doctors and
parents alike wanted to know where we got the harness. Keep up the good
work. I think I will order another one. Thanks.
We got our DreamSack today and the babies just love it!!!! Thank you
so much for this wonderful, beautiful baby bed:) You all are awesome!!!

I received the 2 harnesses I ordered and my girls just love them. The special request harness for
my dapple to line with fleece seems to have done the trick. No more bruising on her bald little
chest! Thank you so much for a great job and such fast service!
The harnesses I ordered recently have arrived, and just like our first ones from 9 years ago, they fit great, look
great, and JennyB and Bandit love them.
Hi there, I ordered one of your harnesses a couple of years ago for our little guy and he still loves it. I can't
tell you what a difference it made to him when we switched from walking him with his leash and collar to using the
harness. He immediately was sooo much happier and excited to go out for his walks. Now we were lucky enough to add
another doxie to our family this past February and I'm anxious to order her one of her very own.
When I used the vest for the first few times, I was a little worried that it wouldn't be strong enough. Gypsy
gets into her moods & she likes to pull on her leash & chase after squirrels. Well, I worried for nothing. Not
only does she NOT pull with the vest, but that little thing is a lot stronger then I thought it would be. We
just received our second vest a couple of days ago. I'm resisting the urge to order a few more in the fabric
with the colorful trim, but for now we'll just stick with the 2 we have. I am recommending this product to
everyone I know that has a dog. I'm sure I'll be ordering again soon.
Just wanted to let you know Maddie loves her new harness coat. It fits her perfectly as does the other harness
I ordered. Thank you so much for making such a great product. I knew there had to be a special harness for my
very special family member. Nothing else fit. You provide a great service for us dachshund owners. Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for expediting the harness I ordered for my little doxie girl, Sunny. She is in the recovery
process from spinal surgery for IVDD (ruptured disc). The harness seems more comfortable and she looks great in
green – my kennel color!
We received the new harness today. Just wanted to thank you again . It fits perfectly. I will be returning
the old harness in tomorrow's mail. Thank you for such great customer service. And for standing by your products
as you do. Thank you again.
I received my harness for my dachshund that I
ordered from you and it is so cute on Harley that I can't believe it! It fits
him perfectly and the design on the material is wonderful. I know I will
receive many compliments on it. I haven't seen any like it here in Ft Worth.
Congratulations on a great idea.
I just want to thank you for your wonderful product. I received your hug a dog harness for my schnoodle Baxter
on Saturday. The size is perfect for him! It was easy to put on him and attach the loop to the seatbelt in my car.
He wore it with no problems, and was able to play in it at the dog park. It seemd like he didn't care that it was on,
so I left it on him for a while. It was also easy to remove. I feel that he is safely secured now in the back seat of
my car. The next day he wore it to his first pet therapy class. The instructor liked it and would like to order one
for her dog(s). Thank you for a great well made and useful product!
Just thought I should ask is your Bo Bo toy the same manufacturer as the one at Pets Mart? If it is, you need
to be aware of something. We bought one for our doxie. Within an hour she pulled out both eyes. Which were the
bolt type. Luckily she did not swallow them. But we could not believe that this would be on a dog toy. The
plastic eye was attached to a bolt. My husband works for a pet wholesaler that is picking up a line of toys
with the Bo Bo toy but with cloth eyes. Just did not want you to have a problem selling something that dangerous.
I know I don't have to tell you how fast a doxie can chew a toy. Well, anyway just saw that on your website and
had to let you know. We have been a dachshund delights fans from the very start. Bailey has been in your
newsletter years ago about 4 times. We love all of you. Merry Christmas.
Denise and Bailey
Editor's Note: Our bobo toys are the all-cloth kind. You can order them without
fearing for your dogs' safety.
Hello all, I was very pleased to receive my two trench coats today. My big boy, Renny looks fabulous, and the fit
is perfect. As is my other for little Maggie. Really just great. Thank you so much, barks and kisses.
We have already purchased 4 hug a dox harnesses for our two sweeties and they are godsends. Everyone comments on
them, especially the colorful patterns. We are also planning to order new Winter pattern harnesses for them soon.
Thank you for the 2 fall harnesses for my doxies Brewster and Dudley. I received them within 2 weeks beginning
to end. They fit the boys perfectly and they can't wait to go out carousing at the camp on Labor Day weekend. They
know they'll get tons of compliments (and treats) and mom will be handing out your card to all the other campers.
There are 450 sites. It seems that other sites have a lot of doxies or other breeds. Thank you ever so much for you
perfection and detail you put into your products. Will be ordering again for Christmas. Can't Wait!!!!
Take care, Love Brewster and Dudley H., oh yeah, and Mom too!
YOU'RE THE BEST! Thank you so much for rushing our hug-a-dog harness to us! We know you had to really go the
extra mile in getting it to us before our trip with such a short notice. The minute we got it we walked our
Snickers with it and it fit absolutely perfect and he was noticeably happier and more comfortable. We'll be
needing a couple more when our little ones get a tad bigger. Thank you again for accommodating us, we will
be telling everyone about your products.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for expediting my order for my Vizsla girl that had recent cancer surgery
on her neck. My girl is recovering from surgery well and is able to walk on a lead with the help of your fabulous
harness. There is no pressure on her neck, her incision is healing well, and MOST importantly her attitude is
good because she is still able to go for a short walk!!
The Harness "fit" is great … and I am just thrilled with your kind wishes and helpful cancer web site.
We have a long way to go still … with beating this cancer … but you and your product have made the
"road" a bit smoother for us. Thank you so very much!
Jan S. and Emily, who looks so fashionable despite shaved fur and stitches!
Last week, I received the order we placed at the Super Pet Expo in Chantilly, VA. I just wanted to let you
know that the harness fit Riley, our English Bulldog, perfectly!!!
Thanks for doing such a GREAT job!
I just got my order and the coats are just splendid … and they fit perfectly! Abby and Pumpkin have
finally coats long enough to cover their backs.
Thank you so much!
No wonder your newsletter is entitled Dachshund Delights. I can't wait to read each monthly newsletter. I found
your site over two years ago, shortly after becoming the proud mom of a long haired mini named Tinker Toy.
I haven't laughed or cried so much in such a short time. I grew up with my Nana having a doxie that was born
the same day I was and lived to be 18 years young. I swore up and down that some day I would find the one for me.
Nana's Fritz set the criteria so mine had a tall order to fill. She did instantly and the list became only two
things: did she love me? did I love her? The answer was a resounding yes! And that started it all. My husband,
who never dealt with doxies before got the surprise of his life. How could anything so small be so stubborn
and oh-by-the-way wrap him so quickly around her little toe. He can't wait until we find the 'right' next one.
Tinker Toy has raised a little Toy Poodle as her sister. Tawny thinks, acts, and eats like a doxie. She too has
developed the doxie stubborn streak but has us both wrapped around her little toe too. They live with a
15½ year old BIG brother. He is a German Shorthair. They look to him for protection, comforting
in an unsure situation, and someone to hide with when they have done a no no." A resounding thank you for a
