custom dog harnesses for your Dachshund or other small dog

How to Measure your Small Dog for a Custom Dog Harnesses

Weenie in the Window custom dog harnesses are designed for small to medium dogs, with a girth up to 24". Although we specialize in Dachshunds, we cater to many dog breeds (and cats as well)! Click here for a complete list of dog breeds that will fit into our harnesses.

To learn why collars are dangerous for small dogs (especially Dachshunds), click here.

Using a soft cloth measuring tape measure your dog in the following 3 places;
1) Neck- this rides slightly lower on the neck than a collar
2) Girth- the widest part of the chest
3) Topline- from the base of the neck to the base of the tail

Measure so that it's not too loose (you should not be able to fit 1 or more fingers underneath the tape), and not too tight (do not "round down" or make the tape pinch the dog). These are the 3 measurements we will need to make your custom dog harness fit perfectly.

If you have any questions about how to measure, please ask before ordering. Obtaining these measurements properly is the responsibility of the customer, and harnesses returned due to incorrect measurements will not be accepted.

Happy customers and cute Dachshund photos
