When walking your small dog experts recommend using a harness. Good thing you came to G.W. Little, we have an extensive harness selection. We offer walking harnesses that are lightweight and harnesses that will keep your dog warm.
Created for the small dog, the Quick Release Step-In Harness by Susan Lanci Designs is light-weight, designed to avoid choking and allows complete freedom of movement. Perhaps leather is more your small dog's style. Scrappy Pet step-in dog harness is designed to be choke-free by eliminating pressure on your little dog's neck and airway while walking on a leash. Doing double duty is the Padded Car Vest Harness. Go from a secure car ride to a safe walk in a matter of seconds.
If you've got a small dog, you'll usually want to get a dog harness. Dog harnesses help small dogs feel more comfortable, giving them the kind of support they need. Little dogs just don't have the neck strength of larger dogs, so they have a difficult time with collars and leashes. In fact, collars can actually injure small dogs, particularly if they're prone to pulling against the leash.
Speaking of pulling, dog harnesses are also an excellent choice if you're trying to teach your small dog not to pull. Many dog trainers require dogs to wear harnesses during training. The harness lets your dog know who is in charge, making the process of learning and responding to commands go more smoothly.
Small dogs also tend to be able to wriggle out of collars, exposing them to dangerous situations in traffic or around other dogs. In a harness, however, they're firmly held in place, and they have no possibility of breaking out. A dog harness gives you as an owner more control, and it also makes your dog feel more comfortable.
G.W. Little specializes in serving the needs of small dogs, and we have a full selection of dog harnesses from which to choose. Some, like the Ultra USA Choke-Free Harness and the Scrappy Choke-Free Step-In Harness, are designed especially to protect your small dog's sensitive neck, throat, and esophagus. Some are fashion statements, like the EasyGo Sweetbow Harness and the Hooded Dog Harness by Puppia. Some are designed for warmth during the cold winter months. Others are good for handicapped or injured pets. And if you travel a lot with your dog, you'll want to check out some of the harnesses designed specifically for traveling. Whatever you're looking for, we have just the right harness for your dog.

I purchased this for a 5 lb princess who couldn't stay off my expensive faux fur throw. She loved it as did my 13 lb Pom boy who normally avoids blankets as he would get too hot. Definitely a favorite! Good thing I bought two. Very high quality and appearance.
Sophie loves the plush blanket in her crate. It's the perfect size and so soft!
My little chihuahua loves to snuggle in this blanket. It is very soft and well-made.
My little Halo loves getting into her carrier now, thanks to this extra soft blanket.
I first bought this harness when I got my Papillon many years ago and and have never put any other kind on them. They are strong but soft and do not cut coat. They are easy to wash. I highly recommend them for any small dog. And the service from GW Little cannot be beat.
I purchased the large blanket for my sister's new rescue dog who is almost ten pounds. She is delighted with the softness and how she can stretch out and cuddle up in it. My dog has a smaller one with the same furry texture. It is her favorite blanket, too, because it's like being curled up next to another fluffy dog. Wonderful product.
My Maltese and I love this blanket. She's wrapped up in it now. Soft, cuddly, perfect!
Purchased this little blankie for 20 month old morkie Jax booster seat. Those winter mornings in car are a bit more comfy with the ultra softness of this blankie. Jax and momma love it!!!!
