My Webster is four pounds and I am having difficulty finding a proper fitting harness for him.

I tried a Puppia soft harness XS and due to the neck not being adjustable it is a little snug. I tried a Puppia Ritefit harness in a S and on its smallest settings it is too big. I prefer the Ritefit due to its adjustable neck but I am unable to find an extra small on the internet.

I would appreciate recommendations.

Thanks,
Debbie

Do you have a Walmart near you? There are many cute harnesses online that you can get, but for a quick fix and for a cheap price, Walmart sells two different types for around $7 each. The first type is a step-in-harness, and the other type is sort of a vest that is lightly cushioned.

I haven't tried the vest style, but the step-in ones will definitely fit Webster. I buy the size "Small", but they also sell ones that are smaller if you need it. It goes by chest measurement.

Crystal from pamperedpetboutiquellc.com was very helpful fitting my 2 fluffs. I have a Puppia for Chloe who is 7.5 lbs maltese and a Bessie & Barnie for Alvin my multipoo. I prefer the Bessie & Barnie and currently waiting for one for Chloe. Hope this helps.

Yep - call Crystal - she has the good brands with style variations so she and can get you the best fit. She also has lots of experience fitting the little ones.

Izzy is 4.6 lbs with an 8 inch neck, 11 inch girth and we use Puppia and Bessie & Barnie harnesses in size XS they fit great. Both got the Crystal thumbs up on fit for Izzy.

The Four Paws Small fits Preston very well. I prefer to use a collar now, but when I bought the harness Preston was 4 pounds exactly and it was a perfect fit (its adjustable). I told my friend about it and she loves it for her 4 pound yorkie.

i like the easy go harness...muttropolos carries them here in california...

they have various styles...my pups are 4.5 and 3.5 lbs and the xtrasmall works great...

for my Cosette I usually prefer the tickled pink harness dress for longer outings as it matts less then the easy go harness...

I don't see where it says the price for the choke free ones, am I missing it?
You cannot order directly through the website they posted for those harnesses...only through retailers. You can try doing a Google search for them and see if any online retailers pop up. I love the metallic ones, they're adorable. :) Haven't tried them, though. Oh, and make sure Rocky is 100% full grown before you get one because they go by specific measurements and are not adjustable.
