We sell dog harnesses to suit anything from a very small puppy to the largest fully grown dog breeds. These include starter/puppy harnesses, mesh, padded, no pull, front clip, lightweight, reflective, ultra-lightweight, step-in and every day harnesses. We are confident that we have something to suit, but if you would like more information please take a look at the individual product pages or the video page for more information.
There are various colours available for different harnesses. For example, our mesh harnesses come in a range of 8 colours including light blue, red, brown, purple etc. Most harnesses will have an option for balck, red, orange and yellow but it depends on the type and range of the harness you are looking at.
Yes, many harnesses in our range have reflective properties
so they show up very well in car headlights and street lights. If you go to our
harnesses collection page https://wigglesandwags.co.uk/collections/dog-harnesses
and use ‘reflective’ as a filter on the left, that will show all of the
reflective harnesses in the range.
This depends on the size of your dog, the breed and which stage of development the dog has reached. There are several harnesses to choose if you have a very small dog or puppy and these range from starter harnesses to mesh and step ins. There are then a number of options with more padding and a substantial chest and top plate for added support. If you don’t want a harness to go over your dog’s head there are also options with a quick-release clip or you could choose a step-in harness. Finally, there are other harnesses that are ultra lightweight or can be used for running, hiking and climbing. Why not explore the options and see which is the best for your dog.
In most cases harnesses will come with sizing guides. You should always measure your dog with a flexible tape or measuring device and you should not guess the size - not all manufacturers use the same sizing and dimensions so this is very important! On the product pages you’ll see a size guide tab showing an image and/or size chart. The chart will probably show the size range for the chest/rib cage area and in some cases the neck. You should measure your dog around the girth (circumference) of the neck and chest (just behind front legs) to get an accurate fit. Please double check the range of the harness and if your measurement is right at the very top of this range, it is probably better to order the next size up.
All harnesses should be snug but not overly tight. You should be able to insert a finger under the top and front chest plate and all straps. You should feel a little bit of pressure there but it should not be a struggle to insert your finger under the harness - nor should it be so loose that you can get your hand in with room to spare! The neck straps should be tightened so it is easy to put on and remove the harness, but is not too loose that it moves freely from side to side. There should be at least a two-finger width gap between the straps around your dog’s rib cage (behind the front legs) and the back of the front legs. You don’t want these straps digging into the dog’s front legs as it walks. Just move the dog’s legs away from the straps so they are forward and look for a slight gap. This quick video explains this.
Any small dog or puppy which has a chest/rib cage girth size of anywhere between 26-52 cm and a weight of between 1.5 kg and 10 kg. As you can see there is a wide range here and they are designed to fit a wide range of puppies within various dog breeds.
Any small dog or puppy which has a chest/rib cage girth size of anywhere between 28-74 cm. This is a huge size range but bear in mind that this harness has a fixed size hole for the head. The size range for head diameter is 10-40 cm - that larger size being suitable for a large spaniel. Please note: These harnesses are designed for dogs that do not pull excessively on the lead.
Any dog which measures between 33-107 cm around the girth of the rib cage just behind the front legs. The neck size will usually be in proportion based on the size you choose so you only need to take the chest/rib cage measurement. A harness with a top and front clip can be classed as an everyday harness and also a no pull harness. Therefore they are a great choice for your dog if you want something more substantial and you normally walk your dog by attaching a standard lead to the top clip. They are also a really good option if your dog pulls excessively on the lead. By attaching a lead or double ended lead to the front clip and top clip of the harness you are able to take more control of your dog whilst on walks. The harnesses are good for most dog breeds, but are ideally suited for anything from a small terrier to the largest of breeds.
Any dog measuring between 28 - 94 cm around the girth of the chest/rib cage. They are ideal if you just want a quick on-off fitting harness. You simply place your dog's legs through the two holes and fasten at the top. Therefore, they are a great choice if you prefer not to place a harness over your dog’s head. They are suitable for anything from a very small terrier up to a medium sized working/gundog.
The ultra-lightweight harnesses are made for flexibility and are very lightweight. They come in chest/rib cage sizes between 43 and 107 cm. They are ideal for dog’s who would prefer not to have a more substantial padded plate around the chest and back area and they are available in an everyday and running/hiking design - the latter comes with three fixing points and are a firm favourite with very active dogs and also whippets, greyhounds, lurchers and other deeper chested dogs, or those that do canicross, climbing, hiking or trekking.
Yes, of course. However, there is one thing to check before doing so. We have many conversations with customers who do not realise how much adjustment is available on harnesses and in well over 50% of cases we can help them to adjust the harness and get it to fit. The straps can be adjusted in a number of different ways to expand or decrease the size for the neck, chest and mid/lower back fixings. If you measured your dog correctly, please trust the product and try to adjust it fully before sending it back. Alternatively, watch this video or call us to discuss. Please remember that if you return a harness due to a sizing issue, you will be responsible for paying the return postage.
If you just don’t like the harness then you are well within your rights to return it. If you would like to do this, please take a look at our returns page for more information.
All harnesses in our range can be machine washed but we’d advise hand washing. Some of the buckles and the metal D or O rings could potentially scratch the inside of your machine and it is far better to wash and soak the harnesses in the sink or bucket if you want to clean them.
Yes, all harnesses can get wet or be submerged in water. If your dog likes to swim then all harnesses should stand up to swimming activities. However, please monitor your dog and any fitted apparel, harness or accessory to make sure it is safe. Please consider a life vest where appropriate.
We now offer a pre-owned service, which mainly consists of harnesses that have been used for a fairly short period of time. This service is particularly useful for people that wish to buy harnesses for puppies or dogs that grow very quickly and the harness gets limited use. The way it works is that you can purchase a new harness in the normal way and in a size range that will fit your growing dog. When it grows out of it, you can return the harness and purchase another one in a larger size for 40% off the RRP. We then sell on your returned harness at a discounted price. Please note: All returned harnesses must be in-tact and have little or no mechanical wear and tear. We accept that there may be some discolouration or fading/soiling of any returned product but it must be in very good working order.
In many cases, we have matching collars, standard leads and double ended leads for harnesses. You can see our matching sets here.
This depends on a few different factors but most of it is really down to aesthetics and looks. This is because most collars these days are strong and well made and are fit for purpose. Whether you are actually using it to attach a lead to or just a tag, you’ll find many options from leather studded to polyester and neoprene lined. All of our collars have strong double-stitching and a good quality o-ring to attach a lead to.
The best way is grab yourself a flexible tape and then measure around the girth (circumference) of your dog’s neck. You can then slacken the tape slightly to match the fit you would like or you hold the tape quite loosely and as you place two fingers under the tape allow it to move and slacken off. Either way, you should be able to get an accurate measurement. Most websites will give size guides and cm and/or inches.
It should be snug but not too tight. A good way to test this is to place two fingers under the collar and if you feel a little pressure you should be OK. Another way to test is to turn the collar around your dog’s neck and if you feel a little bit of resistance you should be good to go. If you would like to see a video about this, please click here.
Yes, all of our collars are adjustable. The fabric/polyester collars in our reflective ranges have a slide - a sliding piece of hardware which allows you to make the collar larger or smaller. The leather collars have a belt style adjustment.
There have been cases where collars can damage a dog’s trachea (windpipe) but this is far more common in dogs where they are led and walked by the collar. Harnesses are used to evenly distribute pressures and pulling forces over a larger area and considered by many experts to be a safer and kinder way to walk your dog.
Yes, it is a legal requirement for dogs to wear collars when out in public - and the collar, or a tag attached to it must display the owner's name and address.
The fabric collars have a side release buckle which engages three prongs into a housing and locks on both sides. You can simply squeeze the buckle on both sides to release the collar. The leather collars use a belt style fastening with holes and a pin. You just select the best hole to suit.
This can often come down to owner preference but many experts believe that it is safer, kinder and more comfortable for the dog when it is walked and led by a harness. Also, many owners now feel that a harness provides a little more support for their dogs and it greatly reduces the chance of injury, should your dog pull or finds itself in a confrontational situation. Many people believe that harnesses are kinder to joints and if the harnesses are of good quality, will concentrate any pulling forces away from the neck area and onto the mid to lower chest.
Yes, many of the collars we sell are reflective so they reflect the light from street lights and car headlights very well.
Yes, in all of our tests (and the feedback from customers) suggests that our collars are safe, both in terms of the strength of materials and the locking mechanisms that secure it and allow you to take them off and put them on again.
There are many options when it comes to colours. We have several designs of reflective collars which are available in red, black, yellow, orange etc and then more traditional leather collars in black, brown and blue. We are sure there is something for everyone in our range.
A standard lead is an every day lead or leash, usually fitted with a spring clip at one end so you can attach it to the ring of a harness or collar.
It can be attached to the top O-ring or D-ring of a harness, or a collar.
We have a range of leads from 1.1 to 1.4 metres (110-140 cms) in length.
Yes, the width of the main lead material does vary between the small and large leads. Please check the product pages for more information.
Yes the larger leads are really designed for larger dogs and the spring clips are more substantial.
Double Ended Leads
A double ended lead is one which has a spring clip at both ends.
Yes they are the same.
You can attach one end to a front ring on the dog’s chest and the other end to the top o ring or D ring on the dog’s upper back. The location of O rings and D rings can change depending on harness type.
Yes, but in some cases it will require input and additional training from the owner.
Basically, when you attach one end of a double ended lead to the front ring of a harness, you should have more steering control. As your dog pulls forward you can very gently steer your dog to the left or right which can throw it off from pulling forwards. If you combine this with some training and positive reinforcement it can certainly help or totally eliminate pulling. The other end of the lead can also be attached to the top O ring or D ring on the dog’s back and this replaces a standard lead and provides a brake. Ideally, you need to teach your dog to heel or not to excessively pull forward on the lead and this can take patience and time.
Yes, you simply attach one end (a spring clip) to one of the O rings located on the main lead material. This means you can then use the formed loop as a handle or move it to another O ring to vary the length of the lead.
They are 2 metres in length from end to end
Yes, the small size has a width of 1.5cm, the medium 2.0 cms and the large 2.5cm.
A spaniel is classed as a medium sized dog and we’d recommend a medium lead.
Yes, you can tie the lead around your waist, use it to tether your dog or wrap it around a post or object and clip one end to an O ring to secure it.
Yes, the double ended leads in our range are reflective, which means they reflect light and show up when car headlights or street lights are directed at them. Many of them use a patented 3M reflective material which is an industry standard reflective material.
There are several colours to choose from including orange, blue, yellow, pink and black.
We have two main ranges. One is a lightweight single-layer option and the other is a padded, warmer coat which covers the underbelly
We have tested both models and they have been successful at keeping water out and keeping dog’s dry on our 10 minute light shower tests.
Yes, our lightweight, single layer coat comes with a harness/lead hole
What is the size range for the coats?
Yes. It is classed as a buoyancy aid so will help to keep your dog buoyant in the water.
Yes, we have a xs harness, which measures 33-43 cms around the chest/rib cage so this is suitable for a small dog.
The sizes go up to XL and this is up to 107 cms girth around the chest/rib cage (just behind the front legs) so this will fit a large dog.
Yes. It is a safe option on a boat just in case your dog falls into the water.
Yes, it has a strong, reinforced metal ring where you can tether your dog.
Yes. It also has a strong handle, which allows you to pull your dog out of the water, if required.
It is by far the best we have tested. You pay a little more for quality like this but it is extremely well made and we feel there should be no compromise for products like this.
No. You can buy 1-4 shoes.
Yes, they can protect your dog’s paw from making an injury worse and for also keeping the paw clean so it can recover from surgery or any further wear and tear.
They can be used out on walks and on all surfaces. They are hard wearing and have rubber tread on the sole.
Just get your dog to place its paw on the floor and apply some weight to it. Then take the diameter of the paw at its widest and match this to the size guide on the product page.
They will offer a very pleasant cooling effect without shocking.
Up to 6 hours.
No, they contain a special phase change material which does not need cooling. However, doing so for 1 hour in the fridge will extend the time the mat stays cool by 30-45 mins. PLEASE NOTE: A very hot dog on a freezing cold mat is not a good idea. The mat is cool enough when it naturally recharges in a cool, dark room or by being placed in a fridge for no more than 1 hour. Please do not place it in the freezer.
You should place the mat in the coolest spot possible and out of direct sunlight. It is also a good idea to allow your dog to lay down on the mat and then maybe reward it so it knows it can return there for relief.
Our smallest mat is 40 cms x 30 cms which is ideal for a small dog. The next size up is 50 x 65 cms and is good for a larger spaniel to medium sized dog. The largest size is 45 x 90 cms and will be big enough for most large dog breeds. To check this, why not measure out an area on your floor and see if it is the correct size for your dog.
Car Seat Belt Clips
They work on the natural inertia of your car seat belt. If and when your car brakes suddenly the seat belt will lock in the normal way and so will the clip.
Just attach it to the seat belt by slotting your seat belt strap into it. You can then attach the other end to a harness clip and/or to another short strap, lead or rope before attaching it to your dog. PLEASE NOTE. Try to keep any belt or lead very short if you are using it between the clip and your dog’s harness or attachment slip.
