About Buddy Belts
Made in Toronto, Canada, the original Buddy Belt dog harness was designed and prototyped in 1997 by company founder and CEO, Roxanne Pettipas. Inspired by and named after Pettipas’ miniature dachshund, Buddy, the Buddy Belt officially launched in 2001 at Toronto’s annual PET Expo.
The unique low-cut design cradles and molds to your dog’s chest, minimizing pressure on the neck and spine to prevent damage to the trachea. This comfortable harness fits around the front legs and fastens over the back with just one buckle. Each harness is hand-crafted from top quality material to form a sleek, streamlined, and durable product.
Available in a rainbow of colours, Buddy Belts come in a variety of sizes to fit all dogs, from teacup and toy to standard. All Buddy Belt harnesses should be worn with a snug fit for maximum comfort and mobility, and optional soft leather liners are also available for sensitive dogs. Other Buddy Belt products include: ID collars, leashes, and couplers. For more information about, and to shop visit:
