My almost 14 year old Golden -
By: goldenjava from AR
I bought this harness about 6 months ago as I've noticed that my aging Golden is going to have a hard time getting up the stairs to our bedroom. She won't sleep downstairs and barks till someone comes gets her. The harness is great as I think she now relies on it as support to move up the stairs without slipping. I think it gives her some confidence. Downside to this harness is that it is rather hard to get it on. I've discovered once you get the zipper locked in on one end, it's difficult to fully zip it because the front end of the harness is down. I've resorted to putting it on, zip it only to secure it, then simply hooking the two rings with the buckle without zipping it all the way up. They should change it to velcro instead of a zipper, then it would get 5 stars. For a 70 lbs golden, the XL is needed otherwise it's too tight to go around the dog.
Great Purchase for Senior Dogs -
By: Doodlebug03 from Nazareth, PA
Best apparatus for our senior four legged friends. This product is so useful for the purposes intended, getting up from a laying position, up and down steps and getting into automobiles. It also serves a dual purpose, It relieves the owner from constantly bending over to assist in these activities. If you have back issues, this makes an immense difference. Product is easy to get on and off. Love it.
Life saver -
By: Es224 from Massachusetts
This harness is a life saver for our 12 yr old lab. She with bad arthritis it was difficult for her to jump in and out of the car. We are now able to continue bringing her to work with us everyday. It takes a few minutes to get the harness on but is totally worth the effort.

My 11 year old Golden Retriever is pretty sick with bone cancer in one rear leg and now arthritis, but he's still happy and wagging his tail. He weighs 77 lbs... the XL was too big and covered his parts so would not work. The L was too small around his body girth. What a good idea, gone bad. I paid overnight shipping twice... Worst experience I've had with the usual quality I find in turning to Orvis for my dog products. Envious of those who had better luck with the product!
Best lift assist ever -
This lift harness has been a lifesaver with our 12 1/2 yr lab. He has has two cry ate repair so his arthritis is bad and when we got a new SUV he would not climb the ramp anymore. This harness has been so wonderful in lifting him that on trips to the vet they have left him in in for X-rays and ultrasound since it is easier to lift him up for procedures without compromising his comfort. A wonderful product
Labadorable Lift Assist -
By: Beth8 from Woodacre, CA
The lift assist dog harness has made it easier for my 14 1/2yo labrador to walk up and down stairs and the ramp to the car. It goes on easily, adjusts easily and is strong enough to support an 85lb dog.
No assist to my dog -
By: LAdams from Scottsdale AZ
This is too difficult to put on any dog, and completely covered and squished my male dog's private parts once I managed to get the harness on. The straps need to buckle to the harness for easy on & off. The zipper is nearly impossible to use, Velcro or snaps would be much better. The construction is very sturdy and of high quality, with the few tweaks mentioned above I think this would be perfect.
Thank You -

I Initially thought my order wasn't going to get her before Christmas but you came through and I really appreciate it. Thanks!

Lily, my 13 year old Weimaraner, is a dear and loved by many. As her arthritis has gotten worse there have been trips to the vet and adjustments in care so she can have the most comfort possible. I got this harness so I could help her if she had trouble climbing steps or getting into the truck. It works perfectly. It is very easy to put on (back zip is brilliant), though I leave her in it much of the time. Now if she needs help I can give her the lift she needs. The harness is steady and secure. Her weight is supported in a balanced way. This harness will help us be together longer with better quality time.
Great Assist Harness! -
By: 1912House from Michigan
We have a 14.5 year old smaller Anatolian Shepherd who has some spinal degeneration going on, along with other medical issues. Anatolians have a long back and we wanted a harness that uses his chest to spread out the "lift" from a harness. Many harnesses are bunched around the rear legs; not an option for our dog because he has such a long back and also digestive issues (we did NOT want to be putting pressure on his lower digestive system!). Some harnesses are focused on the front legs of a dog and again we thought this would not balance over the length of our dog. This harness is lightweight, with two detachable/adjustable rubber grip handles/nylon leads. The harness zips off along the spine, but our old dog just wears it all the time without seeming to notice it at all. This is a really good thing because if he needs to go out quickly, we can get the leads/handles snapped on and have him out the door in under a minute. We use the harness to help our dog down our back outside steps. We don't have to "lift" on the handles much - mostly it's just a safety measure. This harness is also great for getting large dogs in a vehicle. It seems that much of the time, older dogs can "almost" get into a vehicle and just need a little help.
