Update: My Favorite Harnesses For Handicapped Dogs has been updated. Please click on this link for the latest information.
If you have a dog that’s paralyzed or has hind end weakness, a support or lifting harness can be the most important tool you have to keep your pup mobile. Harnesses for handicapped dogs are a safe way to move your dog without putting stress on your back. Too many pet owners spend their days bending down and lifting their dog so they can be taken outdoors to relieve themselves or to put them in and out of the car. The right harness can eliminate this stress.
A harness also provides your dog with a sense of independence, because it allows them to stand upright and move about in the same way they did when they could walk on their own.
