It would be quite awkward if your little Yorkie pulls you in a direction you didn’t intend on going. Imagine you’re trying to pull your Yorkie in the right direction with only a collar and lead, their poor little neck would not feel good and possibly get injured.
Purchasing a harness is really not the end of the world and could actually be a really stylish addition to your hairy friend’s closet. If you buy the right one. Which is why we’re here. We’ve listed the five best looking, most comfortable, durable, and controlling harnesses for small dogs. Finding the best harness for Yorkies just became incredibly easy. You may thank us later.
1. Pet Club Best Walking Dog Harness
Let’s be real, we just love Yorkies because they are so darn cute and that is part of the reason we own them….also, to dress them up! Don’t pretend you don’t do this because there’s nothing more fun than dressing up our little pups in sweet little outfits. We cannot help ourselves.
This is why we love the harness from Pet Club, it does a great job as a harness but has such fun and unique designs that it feels like we are dressing our pup up. I suggest the mixed pink color, it has a fun pattern with a pink background.
- Material – Polyester and cotton
- Colors – Pink pattern, and blue or red in a polka dot pattern
- Easy To Clean – YES
- Why We Recommend – We love the fun pattern and the security this harness provides, no more loose dogs!
On top of a fantastic look, we love that this harness includes a leash. Even more exciting, this harness can fit our cat and rabbit friends. It is quite the trend now to walk your cats and take them on travel adventures, if you don’t believe me, just make your way to Instagram and discover the world of adventure cats!
This harness does a fantastic job of keeping your dog in and it would be quite the challenge for them to escape. If your pup is known to escape, you can stop worrying when you use this harness. It also includes a handle – great to grab your dog if he’s just seen another dog or (don’t say it out loud) a squirrel.
We purchase harnesses to keep our dogs safe and comfortable while walking, but what about when they go off lead? That is also something to consider! You will want to get a harness that is flexible and comfortable so your doggie can release some energy when they run like mad.
- Includes lead
- Prevents escaping
- Easy to take on and off
- Runs small
- Lead included, but not the most durable lead
The Pet Club harness is made of high-quality cotton and hugs the body to keep them in their harness but is breathable, flexible and comfortable for playtime.
2. Padded Dog Harness Set
A harness is wonderful for both yourself and your Yorkie. We love having greater control and your dog is happy to not be yanked around by the collar. Even better when it’s comfortable and padded like this one made by WE LOVE ANIMALS.
- Material – Not stated
- Colors – Black
- Easy to Clean – YES
- Why We Recommend- We love that it comes with a leash and seat belt attachment.
No matter how hard your pup pulls, the padding will keep them protected and not bruised. Even if they try to pull, the no-pull D-ring prevents it and gives the walker total control. Add in the handle and you can easily train your dog and guide them through harsh terrain or away from danger.
Harnesses are great and all, but don’t they wear out fast? Not this harness! It is supported by extra stitching making it heavy duty and is very unlikely to break or fray.
We love this product because it comes with extra goodies, included are a long leash and seat belt. How good is that?! As soon as you receive this product in the mail, you can just as quickly buckle your Yorkie in and be off for a weekend adventure. Perhaps, your dog gets a little too excited on your adventure and somehow breaks the harness, you can relax because this product also comes with a lifetime warranty.
- Includes lead and seat belt
- Very sturdy
- Lifetime warranty
- Machine washable
- Runs a bit large
- Not as full coverage as a vest harness, possibly more likely to break
In addition, the WE LOVE ANIMALS harness is reflective and washable. We want a harness that is easy to wash, let’s face it, if they can, our dogs will run and roll in mud and get dirty any chance they have. As much as we try and prevent it, dogs will be dogs and are sure to get dirty. So find one that is easy to wash and save yourself some time!
3. Voyager Soft Harness for Pets
Yorkies are small and prone to the cold. This is why we love the harness from Best Pet Supplies, Inc., the corduroy material will sure to keep your dog warm all winter. No longer will you have to trick doggie into going outside, they will never again fear the cold!
- Material – Corduroy or suede option
- Colors – Fuschia, black or red in corduroy. Chocolate or latte in suede.
- Easy To Clean – YES
- Why We Recommend – The material will keep our shivering Yorkies cozy and warm.
With extra-plush panels, they will feel super cozy and happy in their harness – great for dogs who hate wearing a harness.
Sometimes our dogs can be fussy and do not like it when we put on their harness. Best Pet Supplies, Inc. makes things better with it’s easy to step-in, velcro, clip and go design. Your Yorkie will now be less annoyed getting dressed in their harness. The velcro is very strong and you can quickly fasten your dog in or make adjustments during a walk.
Perhaps your dog wishes for a poorly secured harness so they can easily runoff, but we don’t, we’d rather not worry about posting missing dog flyers. We recommend this harness so you can avoid that, it has three security points if one somehow fails you have two extra points of security, Yorkie is not getting away anytime soon.
- Machine washable
- Three points of security
- May get too hot in warm weather
- A reviewer notified it bled during the first wash – wash separately at first!
- Runs small
The Best Pet Supplies, Inc. no pull vest will look fantastic on your Yorkie, it comes in a gorgeous fuchsia color and in black or red. There are even chocolate and latte colored vests made of suede. Our babies will look great, stay warm and will be secure – no more running after cats or other critters. Ya can’t ask for anything better than that.
4. EcoBark Control Dog Harness
Find your Yorkie a harness they’ll look fabulous in. I suggest finding one from EcoBark Pet Supplies, they have bright and fun colors and best of all make one heck of a harness, sure to be comfy and long-lasting.
- Material – Double layer of mesh
- Colors – Pink, black, red, green, purple, sky blue
- Easy To Clean – YES
- Why We Recommend – We love that is made with recycled materials.
Indulge in your love for color through your doggies! Unfortunately, these days it is far more popular and acceptable to wear an outfit with neutral colors than to wear wild colors, stand out and be bright. However, these rules certainly don’t apply to Yorkies, in fact, we love when we see a Yorkie in an outrageous outfit.
This harness ensures safety, hugging the dog, it prevents pulling and is sure to never choke the pup. You can walk your dog, not the other way around because as much as Fido thinks you’re his pet, we all know that’s not true. The nice hugging feel can also help pups with anxiety!
This product is made so your dog will be very comfortable, it has a custom stitch cover that protects their legs from chafing and cuts when the harness straps rub against their legs – a major issue with dog harnesses. The double-layer mesh material makes this piece extremely durable, soft and breathable – pups will not get heat exhaustion.
- Made from recycled goods
- Prevents chafing and cuts
- Hugs dog – prevents pulling and puts anxious dogs at ease
- Claimed to be a little loose
- Would be better with more velcro to make it more adjustable
Of course, we love when our pet is happy, but the product is not doing its job 100% if we are not both extremely satisfied, Yorkie and owner alike. We already know the colors will surely please you, but what we love even more about the EcoBark Pet Suppliess Harness is that it is environmentally friendly. Made from recycled plastic water bottles and recycled straps, we can feel good purchasing this product. No longer do we have to buy a harness after harness and add to the never-ending waste in this world.
5. EXPAWLORER No-Pull Dog Harness
When considering harnesses for Yorkshire Terriers you want to find one that gives you great control and is comfortable, safe and durable. We recommend the EXPAWLORER harness because it offers exactly that.
- Material – Heavy-duty nylon with mesh
- Colors – Orange, black, green
- Easy To Clean – YES
- Why We Recommend – It is an all-around great harness and does a great job of preventing chafing.
While small, Yorkies, especially when overly excited or determined are mighty strong. It’s one thing to be pulled by a giant, strong dog like a Boxer but a little more embarrassing when it’s a small Yorkie. So when looking for a great harness, find one that offers better control.
The EXPAWLORER harness has a 2.5 inch widened leash ring on the chest which provides a good and firm connection between the lead and harness, this encourages our friends to stop pulling and ultimately giving the walker great control. It also comes with a handle so we can guide our Yorkies whenever we’d like and it can be used to secure them to their seat belt making travel a whole lot safer.
We’ve all experienced a terribly hot day, so hot our legs began to chaff or our tight clothes wouldn’t stop rubbing us the wrong way. Unfortunately, our hairy friends also experience chafing, we know how horrible it can be and we would never want our pups to endure it. That’s why we suggest finding a harness known to put an end to chafing. EXPAWLORER uses heavy-duty nylon with soft lining to prevent chafing. The mesh further allows air to circulate through the harness, preventing hot sweat and skin to rub against the material.
- Durable material
- Placement of lead can get tangled with dogs legs
- Runs small
Always feel safe with the EXPAWLORER harness with its reflective color. You never know when a deer, squirrel, cat or any other animal will pull your Yorkie away from you. With a reflective harness, your dog will be visible even from afar, a feature necessary for night walks.
For a harness that ensures safety, control, and comfort, while looking fabulous, we choose Best Pet Supplies, Inc. as our winner.
This harness, made with warm corduroy, understands how important it is to keep our Yorkies warm. As small dogs, they are quick to get cold and shiver.
This harness fits snug and offers little room for the dog to escape from their harness while offering great control for the owner to guide their Yorkie in whatever direction they please.
While it is hard for them to escape their harness, it is mighty easy for us to get them in. Putting on a harness can be quite the feat but now we can do it with ease.
One of the best parts about this harness is that it looks amazing! The colors are deep and vibrant and corduroy is such a soft material – great when our dogs brush up against us or beg for a mid-walk cuddle.
