Should I buy a harness or dog collar for my Pug?
Pugs are a brachycephalic dog breed. Their short snout and flat face mean that they have narrow nasal and airways passages that can make it hard for them to cool down. When a collar is wrapped around your pug's next, all the force is placed upon their neck. When your Pug pulls or lunges, the collar constricts your Pug's airways, causing them to choke. It may even cause damage to the windpipe.
Using a harness will spread the pressure evenly across your Pug's chest and will allow you to maintain greater control when walking your dog. This is why it is extremely important to choose a harness over a dog collar.
How do I correctly measure my Pug?
Go and grab a measuring tape as this is definitely the easiest way to measure your Pug. Trace the measuring tape around your Pug's neck and chest. When measuring the best, make sure to measure the broadest part. You want to ensure that you do not tighten the measuring tape too tightly across your Pug as you want to choose a harness that fits snugly.
