Caring for Greyhounds: The Importance of Greyhound Friendly Harnesses

Greyhounds are majestic creatures. However, their delicate skin requires special attention and care, especially when it comes to selecting the right harness. As lovers of Greyhounds, all of the Totally Greyhound family understand the unique needs of greyhounds and have dedicated ourselves to providing carefully chosen harnesses that prioritise their comfort and well-being. In this article, we will delve into the significance of using harnesses that do not harm a greyhound’s sensitive skin and explain how our research and commitment to their specific needs have led us to develop a range of exceptional harnesses.

Understanding Greyhound shape and Skin Sensitivity
Greyhounds possess a thin and delicate skin that is more prone to abrasions, irritation, and pressure sores compared to other breeds. This is primarily due to the lack of subcutaneous fat and a minimal hair coat, making their skin more vulnerable. The harnesses that fit loosely on other dog breeds can cause discomfort and even damage to a greyhound’s skin.

The Need for Delicate-Skin Friendly Harnesses
Regular harnesses, often designed for average-sized dogs, can create friction points and chafing along a greyhound’s body. This can lead to painful sores, rashes, and potential infections, causing unnecessary distress to your beloved pet. It is essential to recognise the importance of harnesses specifically crafted for the anatomical structure and sensitivity of greyhounds.

Our Research and Care:
At Totally Greyhound, we are passionate about the well-being of greyhounds and have made it our mission to provide them with the utmost comfort. We have conducted extensive research and collaborated with experts to develop a range of harnesses tailored to the unique needs of greyhounds. Our careful selection of materials ensures that the harnesses are soft, lightweight, and gentle on their sensitive skin.

Choose Wisely. Features of Our Specially Chosen Harness Range:

  1. Soft and Gentle Fleece Lining: Our harnesses are designed with a soft and plush fleece lining that offers a cosy and comfortable fit against your greyhound’s skin. The fleece is gentle and does not cause any irritation or discomfort, making it ideal for their sensitive skin.
