    You can order the harnesses online, http://www.wiggleswagswhiskers.com/

    Nicky is in a small.

    Thank you.


  • Lisa, is he just barely in a small? or could a slightly bigger Basenji fit into a small. I would like to get one for Hippo, but he is a the large side..


  • His is taken in about a 1/3 on the chest side straps and almost a 1/2 on the under strap so plenty of room to adjust smaller and still a ways to go on the larger side but if your boy has a good amount of girth you may want to go up to a medium.

    My dilemna as well. Kipawa is 26.2 lbs. Wish they made something between small and medium.


  • I really think the small would work for the vast majority of basenjis. Even my biggest around basenji would still fit this small. It has probably 4 inches I could still let out around the chest which is what would need the most adjusting.


  • Fran, if Kevin and Therese are going to come out to the lure event this weekend in Cathlamet and if they have a similar sized dog to Kipawa then we can test it on that dog and let you know if you will have enough room.


  • I think I am going to order a small, then if it is too small, I can use it on one of the girls.


  • That makes sense, and when you have more than one basenji chances are it will fit someone.


  • I think I'm going to order 1 too. Buddy is 28 lbs but will probaly be fine with a small.


  • Those look very nice. I use harnesses for Eddie due to neck issues that presented as a severe limp right front leg/shoulder. A good friend/chiro felt around and thought it was actually neck, so we do "gently pull his head off' stretches when he seems stiff and that , combined with a 'step-in' harness has made a huge difference. I hope your Nicky is better soon and that the harness helps him as much as one helped Eddie.
