      Best lift assist ever - 1/13/2015

      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 - 1/5/2015

      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 - 1/2/2015
      By: 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.

      So glad I got this. - 12/31/2014

      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! - 12/23/2014
      By: 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.

      Help for hips! - 12/16/2014
      By: from Virginia

      My German Shepherd has hip dysplasia and stairs are painful. This allows me to take some of the weight off his hips and yet I am not carrying my 93lb dog up the stairs. He is so much happier, and best of all... LESS PAIN!! Thank you ORVIS!!! GREAT product!

      A helpful harness - 12/14/2014
      By: from Ceres, CA.

      We go through life and learn in small steps what is really important. My German shepard at 14 human years is a Saint. If i were just 10 % as good as he naturally is, I would be a Saint. The harness has been an invaluable peace of wonder, assistance, and mercy to help Tucker with his advanced stage of hip dysplasia. I don't have the back bone to put him down and Orvis has provided our friend and family a very Merry Christmas with the aid of the Harness. God Bless you all and much deserved happiness.

      Good support for older dog - 12/13/2014
      By: from Duxbury, MA

      I purchased this harness so I could support my older lab getting up and down the stairs and in and out of the car. The harness is very well made and extremely sturdy. My lab is 11 years old, has both cruciate ligaments torn and repaired and has arthritis very bad. Great product.

      A quality product - 12/13/2014
      By: from Oxford, UK

      Our dog is 13 years old and has recently suffered a stroke so her age related physical weakness in the hips is now further compromised by a lack of balance. This harness has been a godsend. We can help her to get in and out of the car and climb stairs with minimal effort. It is easy to fit and remove, comfortable for the dog and is clearly a high quality product.
