A few weeks ago I was contacted by Golly Gear, a wonderful company that specializes in fun, affordable, and practical items for small dogs. They invited Ruby in for a custom fitting for a new harness in exchange for a review on the blog. Although Golly Gear is primarily an internet-based company, their shop is located a few miles from our house. Ruby was in need of a new harness so this generous offer came at the perfect time.
When we arrived for our fitting, we were welcomed warmly – it was clear from the start that Golly Gear loves dogs. We first discussed Ruby’s temperament and harness needs. They then measured her and made several harness recommendations. We chose the PerfectFit By Gooby.
PerfectFit Harnesses are available in multiple fun color combinations. As you can see, we chose the purple and lime green. Golly Gear was very nice and also gave Ruby a lovely leather aqua leash in addition to lots of belly rubs and a few treats.
Harnesses are incredibly important especially for small dogs with fragile necks. When we adopted Pip, he had a partially collapsed trachea from years of wearing a collar that was too small. The PerfectFit collar has double rings, which accommodate tags and eliminate the need for a collar. Ruby is very comfortable in her new harness and hardly seems to notice it all.
Although we are fortunate to live near the Golly Gear store, they pride themselves in providing extraordinary service to all their customers. They welcome questions and are passionate and true experts in harnesses as well as other solutions for small dogs. Their company motto is – there’s no one harness for ALL dogs, but there is a perfect harness for each individual dog. In addition to harnesses, they have a wide selection of leashes, coats, beds, bowls, etc.
If you are in the Chicago area, Golly Gear also offers an exercise area for dogs during the winter. You can rent their space for an hour or two and let your dog run around inside when the weather is nasty outside. I highly recommend you check out Golly Gear – their selection, knowledge, and customer service is truly second none. You can also follow Golly Gear on Facebook and Twitter.
And now the exciting part, the generous folks at Golly Gear are offering a $25 gift certificate to one lucky reader. Please enter below.
