This is tough to review. My dog was diagnosed with Laryngeal Paralysis and had tieback surgery in 2016 to improve his breathing. The surgery improved his breathing but the disease continues to progress with nerve degeneration and paralysis of his hind quarters. He is now 10 years old. I had been using a combination of a harness and a rear sling to assist his ambulation, but the harness put too much stress on his throat. I got this hoping I could just use it to help him ambulate without putting stress on his neck. He weighs 95 pounds, so I am unable to lift him with it. It helps a little, but I still have to use a rear sling when it comes to getting him up and down stairs which he has to do to go outside. It is thick and warm, so I would not recommend having the dog wear it on a hot day. My dog needs more rear support than frontal support, even though his front legs are starting to get weak. I am still working with it, but I am not entirely certain that this will work for my dog. He is still alert with a good appetite, he just cannot walk and to find something that will help get him up and down steps has been a challenge. This item would be great for dogs weighing 50 pounds or less, as you can actually carry your dog, but I do not recommend this for larger dogs. This item is a "lift" and was not meant to guide and help the dog to walk.
Works pretty well, helps me support my senior dog and help him up if he falls. The only problem is the carrying straps. They're too short, so I'm hunched over if I want to hold the handles while we walk or if he wants to jump on/off the curb. Followed measuring guide to a T and it fits him very well, but the handles are just too short.
We measured our pup but the sling was still too big. It is a nice sling, sizing is just off so we have fashioned a sling that works okay.
Good concept but too hot for my dog and kind of lifted front end instead of his back first so made him unbalanced.
This is a good very supportive sling. I like that it is firm and won't bunch up under my dog. However the front strap can make getting it on and off a bit awkward, and I'm not sure the strap is really useful. Unfortunately, we were only able to use it a few times before our dog died.
Needed it for my Lab that was having a front leg amputation. The negative is it kept sliding up and down her torso. There is a strap in the front but that did not help very much.
Our dog has arthritis in her hind legs and has trouble going up and down stairs. This sling harness has been very effective. We are very satisfied.
This harness is so well made. Soft on inside. Straps long enough so I’m not walking bent over and easy on/off. I’m 5’9”. My dog had major hind leg surgery and I was able to assist with bathroom walks. Love this. Seriously
We are so glad we purchased this walkabout for our senior dog. She’s 16 and her left rear knee cap pops in and out. She loves the harness because it distributes her weight more evenly and takes the pressure off her knee unlike her old front harness.
Great product. Ultra comfortable and distributes the dogs weight evenly, however, my dog is very difficult and wouldn’t let me put it on her.
