Should I buy a harness or dog collar for my Dachshund?
Do you find your Dachsund pulls the leash?
Or do you find your Dachshund lunges forward?
In any event, if you have a Dachshund you always need to select a harness above a dog collar. Using a dog collar may strain your pet's neck and airways. That is because a puppy collar will employ all the force in your pet's neck and choke them whereas a harness is a far safer option for the pet since it spreads the force evenly throughout your pet's chest allowing your puppy to feel comfortable about walks.
How do I correctly measure my Dachshund?
Choosing a harness that fits snuggly in your Dachshund is extremely important. If the harness is loose, not only can it be possible for the dog to get free, but it'll be uncomfortable for them as it's going to be always rubbing against their skin. This will not happen if you understand how to properly measure your Dachshund.
The simplest way to properly measure your Dachshund is to use a measuring tape. A measuring tape allows your readily and correctly measure across your pet's chest and neck. Be sure when measuring their chest which you opt for the broadest aspect of the chest. This is normally located right behind the armpits of the pet. Be certain not to pull too closely around their chest and neck using the measuring tape because you would like to guarantee that the use is a comfortable fit.
By having precise measurements of your Dachshund's chest and chest, you'll be able to opt for a harness that's within two inches (roughly 5 cms) of your Dachshund's dimensions.
If you're actually trying hard to choose between two sizes, go for the bigger size.

From the time that your Dachshund is 8 weeks old and ready to go for a walk, you need to be certain you've got a harness prepared for them. This way, your Dachshund will get used to the tap right from the get-go.
