helping my senior cocker with arthristis go down steps
Overall this item works well for our 15 year ,17 pound cocker to navigate down stairs from 2nd story rooms. The harness fits well and she seems comfortable in it. She hated going down steps before as she would often fall with the harness on . To carry her back up isn't as comfortable for her so I am continuing to pick her up for now, but it is worth it to not have to worry about going down steps with her. Some issues I do have involved adjusting the straps and getting used to properly putting her in the harness. Also the length of the long straps which seem almost to short going down and seemed too long coming back up. Adjustments to length seemed tricky ( maybe just me).

Perfect for that extra bit of help
I don't know who liked this more, me or my German Shrphard. Due to a broke left, front toe, she ended up in a stint. We live in an upstairs apartment, making it extremely difficult for me to 100% help her up or down before buying the vest. After the our first use, she decided I couldn't take it off her. It allowed me to help her around the house without either of us getting sore backs.

Excellent Well Made Harness
Our little dog has arthritis issues and has been struggling to walk. This harness has been a real hell for both of us. We can help on him if he falls with the handle on the back which Has helped our poor little guy walk a lot easier.

Had this for a couple of months & it's fantastic. Our old dog had to be carried up & down the stairs everytime he needed to go out. We've tried many harnesses & this is THE BEST. It gives support under the belly which impressed our Vet & she is going to recommend it to her other patients.

Helpful for Older Dog!
My 15 year old mixed breed dog (border collie/beagle/??? - medium sized) was having trouble getting up and down the 2 steps to the yard. It is very helpful to be able it use the handle to help him. He also has trouble standing for long. When he is eating, his legs slowly start bending and sliding from under him. This has been helpful to give him a little extra help. Also, we recently went on vacation and paid a neighbor to stay with him and dog-sit. She found it helpful since she hasn’t ever had a dog and ours is “special needs” now that he’s older! She left the harness on him most of the time and it was comfortable for him.
