Apart from being an avocado quality inspector Elsa is the Top Dog Harness mascot, looking splendid here in her Arctic Haqihana Harness ๐Ÿ˜

Elsa the Maremma came into my life as a foster dog as things just weren’t working out well for her living in suburbia with a busy young family. So she moved in and quickly stole my heart with her big fluffy cuddles. There was a cheeky side to this puppy and she used to steal my avocados from the kitchen. But it all worked out wonderfully for Elsa as she found her forever home on a biodynamic avocado farm!

Aww… don’t we love happy endings! ๐Ÿ™Œโค๏ธโœจ

Hilde’s story written beautifully by her guardian @zoechaos ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’•
Hilde was the most perfect, precious girl. Our paths crossed when I realised that my beautiful Bull Arab, Sabre, was getting old, I knew Thelma (my staffy) wouldnโ€™t cope without a friend, so to make it as easy as possible for her I decided to adopt a greyhound. I gave a loose description of what I was after, female and dog friendly. I got no photos, or anything, her trainer turned up to our house and with her and introduced her as โ€˜Mareeโ€™. She was not what I expected at all, much taller and with a wonky ear, which I was very vain about initially, but it turned out to be one of my favourite features of hers .

She waltzed into my life, very self assured and incredibly grumpy. Over time, we treated the pain that was making her grumpy and she became so sweet. She stayed self assured though, if she wanted a loaf of bread off the bench, well she thought she was well within her right to just hop up and eat it.

She loved going to rivers, creeks and the beach to splash in the shallow water and look around for things to chase (not that she ever did). She actually became a very proficient swimmer too! She loved babies and always tried to stick her head in prams going by for a hello and lick ๐Ÿ˜ณ

She was the softest dog I have ever patted and chattered her teeth when she got pats or peanut butter. She loved doing spins in the yard and her bedroom. We could hear her thumping around from the other end of the house!

Perhaps the most special thing about Hilde was that she (unbeknownst to her) connected me with my boyfriend after a really horrible, hard time. He had made an Instagram for Bowie. I followed it and was chatting to him for a while before I even realised it was not a crazy dog mother, but a crazy dog father ๐Ÿ˜‚

We have been together for years now, have bought a house together and have our little family of dogs ๐Ÿฅฐ If only she knew how special she was and how much happiness she brought to me ๐Ÿฅฐ

Amazing business

Amazing business! I ordered harness and leash and my order arrived very quickly. They even included a small card with my Whippetโ€™s name ‘Maeve’, so cute! Highly recommend.

Safest Harness for Whippet dog pup Australia
Kurraba Point, NSW

Easy to adjust

The girth sits so nicely behind the forelimbs – no rubbing in the underarms at all. The front sits down in the centre of the chest and off the throat. The shoulder straps don’t interfere with the upper legs at all. It is easy to adjust. The webbing is smooth and yet once secured will not slip. Just perfect ๐Ÿ˜
