If you have a small dog, you know the struggle is real for small dog breed products. As someone who once had both a Yorkie and Chihuahua, I know that the average dog harness is not meant for a small dog's chest.

Getting the right pet supplies before you take your dog home is very important, but imagine getting your dog and noticing that his collar or harness is too big. A small dog's neck and chest are usually too "wittle" for most dog collars and dog harnesses.

Average chest size of small dogs

A Pomeranian, Pug, or Yorkie may have a chest girth of 8-16 inches.

Some of the best dog harnesses are soft mesh. Mesh dog harnesses are popular because they're comfortable for pets. Breathable mesh in pet apparel can be important based on where you live. A perk on this harness is the quick release buckle. Also, keep in mind this harness is marketed towards cats, so I think this would be a perfect fit for small dog breeds.
