I use the Kurgo Enhanced Strength harness for my cat, she gets carsick in a carrier so she rides in a dog booster seat wearing a harness. The Kurgo one was one of the few that were small enough for her since she's only 7 pounds.

The thing is all the harnesses failed some of the tests that the Center for Pet Safety did except Sleepypod's harness. I am not sure if the Sleepypod harness will fit a dog that small. However, if you read the report some of the harnesses only failed at some weights/sizes, so some of those harnesses may possibly be ok for a small dog that won't be exerting as much force. Also if you look at the notes they gave, some of the issues were things like the tether was too long so you could use a shorter tether for example.

Pooch had an FHO on one hip, the other hip was ok. This is his FHO diary I started before his surgery and documented his recovery:

Well I not surprised. I've had people ask me if my Golden Retriever was the mother of my Rat Terrier mix Pooch. Pooch was 2 years older and 10" shorter not to mention they looked nothing alike!

This reminds me of that funny video "Cat Friend vs Dog Friend"... laugh out loud

If you search that on google you can watch it if you haven't seen it already.

I'd suggest talking with your vet about it.
I made an appointment with a rehabilitation vet before my dog's FHO surgery to see them a week after. They gave me a lot of info on how to start exercise with him and what I could do at home and supplements to use and I also brought him in for hydrotherapy and other things as well. However he had a lot of muscle atrophy before his surgery so he needed more time before he was using the leg well and it too a lot longer for the "false joint" scar tissue to form, we had to get several x-rays to check on his progress and he was doing physical therapy for a long time.

You can read the diary I made about my dog's surgery and recovery here:

Small Dogs > My 15 lb Pom at exactly 6 months

Two puppies in the litter is I believe fairly normal for a Pomeranian.
At 15 pounds that is more than twice the standard size meaning way too big according to AKC standard. Why even bring up that they are AKC registered if you're just going to ignore the standard anyway?
Pomeranians can have many health problems including heart, eye, hip and thyroid problems and luxating patellas as well as seizure disorders and they should not be bred without being tested for those which can be tested for. In fact the parents and grandparents etc should be tested as well and you need to know if any of the parents, grandparents and so on suffered from these conditions before breeding. Even if your dog is clear, she could still be carrying the genes for a disease from her parents and pass that on to her puppies.

Service & Therapy Dogs > To Vest or Not to Vest?

Just curious why you say a SD should always be vested? The law does not require any vest or ID correct?

Behavior & Training > Why do trainers insist that "positive training" doesn't work?

"The people who adhere to the school of thought you're referring to say it doesn't work FULLY because they believe real world behaviour cannot be proofed one hundred percent without corrections/feedback. That in emergency situations the training falls down. "

I guess what I don't understand is why people think this, when this type of training is used for so many dogs who will be in "real world" situations all the time. thinking I mean it's not only used for dogs going "in the ring" so to speak.

Personally I don't think there is any one hundred percent with dogs, no matter what method is being used. If the dog is in the "real world" there is always a chance they will not to do what you expect, no matter what methods you used, how much training, proofing, how well the dog has performed in the past, etc...
