very well made -
By: Joanie327 from Center Hill Lake, Tennessee
We have 3 dogs we take to the lake every weekend. One of our 12 year old labs has a hard time going up and down the steps to the dock. She has hip issues, I purchased this to help take the weight off when she goes down the steps. We did the towel trick several years ago after her injury, this is much better for her and my back :)
difficult dog -
By: megansowner2 from Bedfordshire
I thought this product would be ideal for my arthritic Irish setter princess, however when it arrived it was just as advertised I had neglected to consult her highness on the subject and she would have nothing to do with it. I can say Orvis were understanding and the return and refund process was fuss free and quick I would reccoment this companys products to any one.
Perfect to load our dog up a ramp -
By: Lovingmydogs from Shiner, Tx
Love, love, love the harness. It is adjustable to fit our 75 lb dog AND the 125 lb dog. We have been using a harness from the pet store that they could slip out of. Your harness gives me total confidence I can walk them up the ramp to our truck, into the vet's office, back home without them getting out of it. Thanks!
Keeping the Family Together -
By: CamilleLouise from Montclair, New Jersey
We found this just in time as our 12 year old Golden developed nerve degeneration. We were carrying him upstairs and it was stressful and difficult for us all. This is very well designed for its purpose and made solidly. It works like a charm enabling the family to be together, A tip: shift the front handle forward while keeping the back one perpendicular. Be careful that the panel doesn't get in the way of the piddler though. Once again this proves that Orvis is THE place for dog accessories.

I used this harness for my 120 pound Great Pyrenees who had knee surgery to help her navigate three steps and walk outside. The two handles made it possible for me to hold her up by myself and get enough weight of her back end. The harness adjusts well and is lightweight but sturdy.
Saves the Day For Buddy! -
This product has made it possible for me to assist my 15 year old springer spaniel with using the stairs. The sturdy construction provides a comfortable fit and a strong zipper keeps the harness firmly around him. Four large metal rings attached to two sturdy handles allow me to give him the support he needs when he stumbles. So far, no falls!
Seems fit for purpose and well made -

Was a bit doubtful whether the medium might be a bit large for our fairly dainty elderly cocker spaniel but it fits OK with the straps nearly fully tightened. Could have done with a diagram to show which way to put it on, not absolutely clear. After a short trial at home, I think it will be useful to help her up to our daughter's 4th floor flat, which is why I bought it (although not very big, she's too heavy for me to carry up 4 flights of steps, I'm fairly puffed just getting myself up there!)
Worth the money -

Carrying a 100b 14 year old arthritic dog up and down stairs isn't much fun. With this harness it becomes easier for myself and most importantly my dog. It makes visiting places with stairs much easier, which means I can bring my friend to more places keeping him active and involved despite his age. Highly recommended.
lift harness for older dogs -
By: lpn04750 from Attleboro Massachusetts
I like the construction of the vest/harness and it is easy to get on and off. I do wish that it came with 2 handles to lift your senior citizen. It is a little awkward using a leash and a handle...
Wonderful Product -

Our Rio (rottie-chow mix) is 10 years old. She had ACL operations in 2008 and 2010. We tried something similar to this, but it was so much more a "contraption," we could not use it, way too cumbersome. THIS one is sleek, easy to handle, I might get another to keep upstairs so we are always prepared! It achieves exactly what I wanted. Intend to keep it on her more often than not, but right now weather is too warm. I think she actually likes the security of it when it's on, even without our using it. This is a real blessing.
