IVDD dog must have! Back saver/Life saver
I love EVERYTHING about this product. We ordered it the day after our Winston, collapsed after trying to jump on the couch. His back legs were and are still paralyzed. He was diagnosed with IVDD. The first day after the diagnosis, my husband and I had to hold our dog's back legs up while he went to potty. My husband ordered this harness and it was here about a day later. It is perfect for Winston and for us as the caregivers. It goes on simply (once you study the paper that comes with it and watch the video), and the support it gives is amazing! When this injury first happened, my first thought was "how I am going to do this alone???" Well, this harness makes it possible. It's easy to clean Winston's bottom with one hand while supporting him with the harness with the other hand. I do not know what I would have done without this genius product!!! This is an amazing product. Put Winston's legs in the holes, buckle it up, and we're good to go.

The best thing for my post IVDD surgery pup.
This harness is amazing. My little guy had IVDD surgery 1 week ago. The under belly sling we had before was making it harder to pee.
This harness made everything so much easier. It took a little bit for him to get used to it, but not long. After about 15 minutes he was walking. He took his first #2 post-op the same day we got this sling. He seems more confident in it and I think it's really helped him start with taking a couple steps.
The design of the harness is fine. You can't just put it on however you want, it has to be put on right. I always try to remember the size tag has to be towards the left front of his back left thigh. The buckle across the top is adjustable and you'll adjust it every time to get a good fit.
It's a great harness for a great price.

This harness helped us get our dog in and out of the house for the last month or so of his life. We had other harnesses that went under his belly, but this one allowed me to hold him up while he did his business on quick trips out and back inside. I don't know that we could have had that extra time without it.
I don't think my dog especially loved having this harness pulling up between his thighs and torso, so that's why I didn't rate it high for comfort.

Best we found and simple, cushiony design
Really needed this for our senior dog when he needed help in the stairs. It worked great.

I wish I had purchased earlier
This is a just what I needed. My 13.5 labradoodle has been losing strength in his rear legs and is knuckling. If I had had this early on I could have managed him much better. We are at the very end, and it would have really helped him so much, but I didn't know. The price is great, shipping was quick, I oreder on Saturday, it arrived Sunday afternoon. Relatively easy to set up and use, really like the rear leg support, instead of an under body sling. When I took him out with it on, he actually trotted around. So my advice to any of you, don't wait this can add a little quality of life on the dreaded end of life.

This product exceeded my expectations!
This product has made my (and my IVDD dogs) life so much easier! The quality and price was great and it works exactly as described! Bonus feature: It's very easy to hand wash if it gets 'messy'!
I have a 14lb shih tzu and ordered a size small and it fit her perfectly!

This has been so so helpful with my dog who was diagnosed with IVDD. I tried other ways before this, but this has been the only one to work. It made taking him out to the bathroom so much easier, and it made it so much easier on my back. He’s about 70 lbs, so I def recommend for large dogs!

Helps keep my dog moving.
My dog suffers from degenerative myelopathy. He can only stand for short periods of time. On his bad days I use this device to help take him potty. Trying to hold a 50lb dog who needs to poop isn't easy. With this he is still mobile and with a small bit of help can use the bathroom without trouble. This device is giving us more time with our best friend. Thank you!
