REVIEW & GIVEAWAY // Meg Heath Bespoke Leads, Harnesses and Collars

If you're a fellow Pug owner then you will know too well the struggles of trying to find anything that fits their tiny yet chunky build! Collars are an absolute no go when it comes to Pugs, the strength of their broad shoulders combined with their wilfulness often means a whole lot of pulling when it comes to walkies! They are so much stronger than you would think too! I know that I wouldn't want to risk my dog hurting herself when we're out and about so we always go for a good quality and well fitted harness.... something that is pretty hard to come by, let me tell you!

Recently I was very kindly contacted by the lovely folk at Meg Heath to see if Elsie would like to try out a few items from their website. This opportunity came precisely at the right time because her current harness is rather bulky and warm.... not great for the summer weather we've been experiencing recently!

Meg Heath offer a huge range of bespoke items on their website including head collars, training leads, car boot safety leads and much more! What impressed me when browsing through the products is that absolutely nothing is pre made. Every product comes with a range of options including colour, length and fittings meaning that you can choose a tailor made product created to fit your dog and your needs perfectly.

The two items that I picked out from the website were the Martingale adjustable dog harness and a traditional dog lead, both in a very fetching cerise colour. I usually opt for a black or tan colour when it comes to harness and lead combos so I was super excited to try something different! 

Getting the right size for these products was no trouble at all. The website has a handy guide when it comes to measuring dogs correctly. It couldn't have been more simple! 

Bearing in mind that all products are made to order, I was super impressed that these items were packed and sent within a few days. 

Such a good service!

So firstly, the colour. I did not regret going for the cerise, the pink suits Elsie so well! We've had so many lovely comments from passing walkers since we've been using this combo so i'm real pleased that both items have the Meg Heath label and contact details on!

Lets talk about the harness. The martingale harness (or the Marty!) is just gorgeous and is super comfortable on that chunky little body. It's lightweight, well made and is so easy to put on! What I especially love about it is that you don't need to lift any legs to get it on and fasten it up. This would be perfect for old or arthritic dogs but it's also super for Elsie here because she's rather reluctant to get up for walkies in the morning.... haha!

Both the breast and girth sections of the harness are completely adjustable so you'll have no problems getting it to fit perfectly. The rings at the top of this product are also sturdy but small, perfect for slipping through the lead hole when your dog is wearing a coat or jumper. 

I really love the simplicity of this product. It's no fuss and super lightweight so it's perfect for small breeds such as pugs who are prone to getting overheated quickly. As I've mentioned before, Elsie does pull when walking (especially when she can smell food!) but I have complete trust in this harness and there's no way she can wriggle out of it whatsoever. 

The dog lead I picked is the perfect partner to the harness. I went for a slightly longer length than we usually use which gives Elsie a little more freedom when it comes to walking on lead. It's worth noting that you can get this lead as long as 4 metres in length should you require this! 

The lead is super soft to the touch and again, feels very durable even though it is super lightweight. It's extremely comfortable to hold, the handle loop is nice and big and I love the addition of the O ring attached to the handle. This makes it ideal for putting over your shoulder whilst your dog is off lead. 

Honestly, doesn't Elsie look cute in pink?! 

I am so pleased with these products. They have instantly become the combo we reach for every day when it comes to walkies. Simplistic in design yet incredibly well made and so comfortable for both pup and owner too! I'd highly recommend Meg Heath if you are looking for a well made, comfortable and bespoke product for your dog!
