This rear support harness was designed especially for dogs that have problems supporting their own weight on their back legs.  This harness is an ideal solution for pets that have hip dysplasia, arthritis, spinal myelopathy, or any other condition that affects the strength and dexterity of their hind legs.  The harness is great for getting pets in and out of vehicles, up and down stairs, and even for taking your pet on casual walks.  When properly fitted, a male and female dog can urinate and deficate with the harness on.

The support harness is made of neoprene and is machine washable. The X-Small and Small sizes need only one handle for support while the larger sizes have two handles. This harness is very comfortable and can be left on the dog for extended periods of time.  When indoors just grab the handle when necessary to aid your pet to an upright position.

"My dog was in horrible pain due to a legion on his spinal cord which was causing paralysis in his hind legs. The medication makes him urinate frequently and finding a product that enables him to move and spare my chronic back pain was exasperating. A towel? Lb. Dogg, my Beagle-Basset slid right out of it, and it was not long enough to alleviate my back pain. We tried sheets which were better for my back, but he ended up either peeing in it, or the towel/sheet would cause him to spray his front legs with urine, not to mention the time it took to maneuver something under him on short notice Everything we tried was either too small or too big.This product is designed very well, easy to put on and easy on my back. My main complaint is that the M/L was in his size range but it didn't fit, nor did the M. It was way to baggy in the hind quarters and would slide off when he was lying down. Being in Alaska the priority shipping is very expensive and I had to do that twice. I ended up altering the M so that Lb. Dogg and me could go outside (in subzero temps, no less) and attend our vet visits without either one of us getting hurt or getting urine everywhere. I am praying that the Small will fit as pictured on the website with the Basset Hound wearing one. And, as the others have stated, detachable and longer handles would help those of us who are tall or have 'low-riders" . No other product accommodates the male dogs need to urinate. If sizing was not such an issue, I'd give it 5 stars."

"It has worked great for us. A little difficult to put on at first, but once we figured out which way was easiest for us it was easy. "

"My dog Sadie wrote the review below on 8/31/11, and I just had to add to it. We have been using it for almost 3 months now, and it is AMAZING. Sadie's back legs were paralyzed 90% of the time; she dragged around whenever she had to get around on her own. We tried steroids, which helped for the time she was on them, but she quickly degenerated again once we weaned her off. We also had her on Rimadyl to help with pain and mobility. We stopped that too (she wasn't really in pain). Since we've come off all the drugs, SHE IS WALKING AGAIN, almost all the time. She still gets tired after a bit and starts to drag again (so we still use the harness), but she doesn't need it 100% of the time. For short walks and around the house, she walks just fine. I have to attribute it to this wonderful, wonderful product. I think it took the stress off her legs and allowed whatever injury she had in her back or joints to heal well enough for her to walk. She was going downhill so fast, we were preparing ourselves for that day all pet owners dread, but now, she is looking pretty spry for an old broad! THANK YOU THANK YOU Senior Pet Products and the people behind the Walkabout Harness. You have given me more time with my beloved pet, and she is as happy and comfortable as she can be. If you are thinking that nothing will help your pet's lack of mobility, I can unequivocably recommend you give this product a try. You might just have a miracle like we have had at our house! "

"My mommy just ordered this great harness for me and I took it on a test run today. It separates my legs better than the towel mommy and daddy were using, and Mommy says it's easier on her back too! My legs are separated and it helps me to really pump those little guys and walk better. (Before, I tended to get a little lazy and drag them sometimes, which is really frustrating when mom and dad need me to get in potty position.) I hope this harness helps my legs to get stronger! Dragging around all the time is a drag, ha! Tinkling and pooping were a breeze, and my harness didn't even get a little wet! Perfect fit! I've still got some life in me yet, and thank goodness for Senior Pet Products making my golden years more comfortable. . .and more comfortable for the 'rents!"

"My toy poodle has not walked in 3 weeks. She suddenly lost mobility in her hind legs. I have been using a towel, but my back is taking a toll. I cannot wait to get the harness for her. :-)"

"Excellent product. My dog adapted immediately and there was no adjustment period. I ordered a second one as back up for washing purposes. Next time try making detachable straps."

"Excellent product. My 13 yr old dalmatian has very little use of his back legs anymore and we were having trouble getting him to get around and outside to use the bathroom. The harness is easy to put on and use. The only problem I found with it is that it stretches out after use. It still does the job appropriately though, so we have not had to get a new one. "
