Greyhound Assist Harness


Recommended Posts

I saw someone mentioned this harness for older greys with bad backs, etc. I ordered on for Missy. The description says can be worn 24/7. I am wondering if anyone has one of these and does their dog wear it all the time. Seems to make sense. I am just not sure if it will annoy her.

thanks.

Dude wore his WebMaster harness 24/7 after his amputation. It fits very well, is VERY sturdy and well made, and seems to help at the right balance points for a greyhound. I could lift him like a suitcase if I needed to. It's made for dogs to go hiking and for search-and-rescue so it should last a while. My biggest problem was Dude chewed through the front straps when he was bored, but my other girl who wore it after being hospitalized left it alone completely.

I used this for Loca. Both the vet and I were thrilled with me.

We used the one from the etsy shop for our Toby. He wore it 24/7. We used it to lift him from laying to standing position and to hold him while he went to the bathroom. It worked great for us.
