When I found Little Paws Apparel I couldn't believe they only charged $10-$11 for these very cute harnesses that actually looked comfortable for the dogs.
I asked Little Paws Apparel to tell me a little about their shop:
How long has your Etsy shop been open? I have been selling on Ebay since June of 2003 and Etsy since March of 2009. I started making the harnesses for my little dog when I was having a difficult time finding cute and comfortable clothes for him. We used a harness to walk him but I wanted to be able to put a coat on him when it was cold so I had the idea to put a d-ring harness strap on a coat so he wouldn't need the traditional harness. People asked about them, so I started up my Ebay store, and have since branched out into vests, dresses and hair bows.
Can you explain the difference a harness makes when walking a dog? The harnesses are good for little dogs because using a collar can put a lot of pressure on their necks. The harness vest is a great alternative to a collar and much more stylish too. What little dog wouldn't want to be fashionable and make a statement while out and about? The coats are great during the colder months, as it keeps them warm while out doing their business. Plus it's so easy, you just attach your leash to the d-ring and you're ready to go. Most of the coats are made in warmer fabrics like fleece or flannel and the vests are made of cotton fabric.
What size dogs do you make these for? I make these for small breeds of dogs weighing under 20 pounds. They come in four sizes, ranging from xs to large.
Buy It - With it being nice out now and everyone wanting to be outside this is a great time to have a harness for your dog. Actually at $10 - $11 a piece you could buy 2 and then have an extra for when your washing one. You can also visit their ebay store at http://www.littlepawsapparel.com/.
