Golly Gear Small Dog Supply Store Review & Giveaway

66

gggggHappy Friday!  I hope that everyone has been having an amazing week.  The weather here has gotten much warmer, so Kitsune and I have been spending a lot of time outside.  Anyone who walks their dog a lot, like I do, knows that picking the right harness is important!  Selecting the perfect harness isn't always an easy task - they are not necessarily a "one type fits all" type of product.  Factors such as your dogs size, fur type, walking style, personal preferences, and more can all be factors that will impact what type of harness works best for you and your pooch.  I recently got to talk harnesses with the awesome people over at Golly Gear.  They sell products made especially for small dogs, including a huge selection of harnesses, and did an amazing job helping me select a new harness for my furry best friend.  Read on to hear more about my experience, and enter to win a $25 gift certificate to Golly Gear!

 

ggggggggIf you're having trouble selecting a harness for your small dog, Golly Gear has this really awesome DIY Harness Picker on their website.  It asks you a series of questions and then, based on your answers, shows you a few harnesses that should work for your dog.  If you have any questions, or want an even more personalized suggestion, you can fill out this questionnaire on the Golly Gear website.

Like many small dog owners, I'm kind of picky about what products I use for Kitsune.  I feel like selecting the correct harness is especially important because they are really your first line of defense for keeping your dog safe while outside.  I pretty much wrote the awesome people over at Golly Gear a mini novel explaining what I was looking for in a harness, and they recommended a couple of different ones, all of which looked awesome.  In the end we decided to try the ActiveGo harness - in red of course.  The harness we got also came with a really cute matching leash (not pictured here).

sWe love it!  It fits Kitsune perfectly, looks adorable on him, and most importantly it stays on him well during walks.  For a long time I always used the same brand of harness on Kitsune (Puppia - Golly Gear has them too if you want to check them out).  I've had some not so amazing experiences with other brands in the past and I think that made me a bit nervous about trying new harnesses.  But we love the ActiveGo harness suggested by Golly Gear so much that it's kind of opened me up to the idea of trying other brands again.  Maybe sometime in the future I'll check out a couple of the other harnesses that Golly Gear suggested.  That way I can change up Kitsune's look, rather than always having him wear the same harness.

If you're not in the market for a new harness, Golly Gear also carries other products such as beds, clothes, toys, and more, all catered especially for the needs of small(er) dogs.  And hey, if your "small" dog is a bit on the large side, don't worry!  My Kitsune is a whopping 20 lbs (huge for a Papillon) and Golly Gear still had plenty of stuff that would work for him.

Now the part I know you've all been waiting for!  Golly Gear was nice enough to allow me to give away a $25 gift certificate to one of my readers.  There are quite a few harness you can get on the site for under $25, but of course you can use the gift certificate on whatever you want.

The contest will remain open until May 22nd, when the winner will be selected and notified via email.  The winner will have 36 hours to respond to my email.  If I don't get a response, another winner will be selected.  The prize will be issued in the form of a $25 email code that you can use when checking out on the Golly Gear website.

  • We would definitely get a couple of collars or bowls!

    • Thanks for commenting! They do have some cute bowls. 🙂 I didn't look too much at the collars, mostly because I don't use them all that often on my dog, but I'll have to take a look!

    I don't have a small dog but.....
    the I.D. tags would be cool because I found a clover tag and I would have a tag for my 4h 😀

    P.S. I am doglover on the forums 🙂

    • Hello 🙂
      I know I said this in the forums already - but Golly Gear for sure has stuff that would work for larger dogs (hey, my Kitsune is 20 lbs so not really that small, and I found lots of stuff that he'd like!) or even for other types of pets.

      • Katty k

        kitsune is 20lbs I was thinking he was smaller(like 10-15lbs)
        there are lots of cool things I would also get some treats 🙂

        • He's very big for his breed! He's a Papillon, so he was technically suppose to be around 10 lbs, but yeah - he's double that! He's not overweight though, just big for his breed. He was already 7 lbs when he was 9 weeks old.

          • Katty k

            wow he is big for his breed

            there are some things I could use for the bunnies 🙂

          • Always looking out for the spoiled bunnies! I found some stuff my bunnies would like on the site too 🙂

          • Katty k

            what did you find that you could use for your bunnies??

  • cezovski

    I would get one of the Skinneeez Stuffing-Free Toy if it becomes available

  • Diana Cote

    I like the Comfort-X Step-in Harness, looks like it would be comfy. 🙂

    • This was one of the harnesses I was looking at when I was trying to select one for my dog. They do look comfy! 🙂

  • AnnaZed

    I would put the $ towards a Choke-Free Shoulder Collar Harness.
