DRAG BAGS
Custom made drag bag which now comes with additional harness for those dachshunds that prefer the security of the harness. The zip runs from tail to neck, making it easy to dress your dog and there is elastic at the waist. The elastic does not need to be tight, it is there simply for flexibility.

Made from exclusive material imported from the UK that is used for moving and handling patients in hospital as it’s tough and is scuff resistant, though it is not designed for outdoor use.
