Features comfortable, adjustable handles; constructed with seat belt-material strapping. In black/red. Nylon/microfiber/PVC. Washable. Imported.

      Perfect for my dog - 8/12/2014
      By: from Dallas, TX

      A friend of mine referred me to this product and I decided to give it a go. My 130 pound French Mastiff is aging and is having trouble going up and down the stairs. We have wooden stairs and he had a bad slip and no longer wanted to even attempt he stairs, but this harness allowed us to give him more confidence and security and he started attempting the stairs again. My dog actually weighs more than I do, but with the distribution of the harness under his body and the help of the handles, I have no trouble guiding him up or down. Overall, it's perfect for what I intended it for. I do wish the straps were shorter or came with a second set of straps that were shorted or closer to his body to have an even better grasp.

      Thank you for real help for my dog - 8/11/2014

      Our 15 year old flat coat retriever has such a hard time with arthritis that he can't get into the car or go up stairs. With the assist jacket he can go on rides again and sleep upstairs by our bed again. It is a new lease on his life.

      A must for older dogs - 8/7/2014
      By: from Central NY

      Having owned many dogs, this is by far the best method to maneuver my older dogs through the daily routine of stairs and outdoor therapy. Harness is untouched while doing their "business". Strong support under their chest and belly. No pulling straps. Very well made. The zipper on the back makes quick and easy access for my elderly dog that gets acupuncture for her failing hips. My veterinarian even asked where I found this! She loved it! If you've done the towel thing with your dog like I did, you'll LOVE this.

      Poor Design and No Instructions - 6/26/2014

      Very challenging to put on an infirm dog -- especially when instructions are not provided. While the harness is handsome and strong, it would be greatly improved if manufacturer could even indicate which end goes in the front -- it is not self-evident. Again, this is primarily a problem when the dog is infirm (14 year old lab!), and the person using the harness has had no previous experience.

      Not the best - 6/17/2014
      By: from Cincinnati, oh

      I did not find this harness good for lifting my 100 pound lab. It was awkward to try to left with the long handles. I found another product that meets my needs better. On the plus side, it did seem to be quality made and constructed. I think it may be improved by having the material wrap under the dog's belly more. Maybe better suitable for a smaller dog.

      Perfect for Boating - 5/28/2014
      By: from Rochester, NY

      We have struggled for years getting our dogs on board our boats. Urging our rambunctious 65lb Fox Red Lab, "Ilse" up and down the steep ladder to the fly bridge is a major challenge. Every summer scratched arms and legs (ours) bear testimony. This harness is exactly what was needed. My wife and I can each grab a strap, to raise or lower Ilse safely (for all three of us) on or off a boat, or up or down a the boat ladder.

      Love Love Love - 5/15/2014

      I bought this for my beloved dog Marlon who has cancer and can not use his left leg anymore. It not only helps him but it helps me. I do not have to bend over to help him up or down stairs. When the time comes I will donate this to the Humane Society. Thank you so much Rosemary Flores Curry

      SKEPTICAL at 1st, but then... - 3/7/2014

      I was skeptical at 1st, but then I noticed the zipper under the D-rings I couldn't believe how easy it went on,this harness is VERY well made. The harness can control the dog quite well when it is fitted properly. I loved it even more when my 14yr old,weirdo,shy dog still did his business with it on. He won't with a jacket on. Even though the harness is sturdy enough to grab using just 1 strap will surprise the HECK out of anyone when used to traverse a staircase.TOP QUALITY! WORTH IT! So well balanced could double as a rescue harness.

      Happy with the harness - 3/1/2014

      My poor old dog has struggled for a while now trying to get up after laying down or even going down a few steps. We did the towel and scarf bit, but this works really well. I wish the straps were a little shorter, but this makes his like a lot easier. A bit pricey, but seemed so much better than others we viewed.
