I am looking for a bit of a special harness for our 10 year old rescue Labrador. He currently has the Julius K9 but I find that the strap behind his front legs is restricting his movement and adding to his issues. Oscar has arthritis all over and also 2 bad hips.
So essentially I want a harness for him that has the belly strap further down rather than straight behind his front legs. Does something like this exist? I have looked at all the recommended harnesses mentioned on here but they all have the strap in that area. A handle would also be good to support him (especially on the back end).
I am thankful for any ideas!
If you need back end support then help em up harness would be my choice
And you’ll need both sections
Thank you Hannah! I really liked the look of the snugglepets, but it does not look as if the handle can allow me to support the back end? Oscar is a heavy boy of 37kg (He is not too fat anymore, just a very big boy).
i use the snuggle pets bespoke CAM one all the time … not restrictive and has a handle.
the webmaster is much harder to get on especially if your dog has elbow problems.
but they do do another one with buckles both sides.
there is also perfect fit and help em up harness that you can get from orthopets
Thank you Kathryn! I got him the ruffwear webmaster now.. In terms of supporting him this is great. The strap behind his front legs is less restrictive than the k9 one and we are also still playing around with the adjustments to see what is the best fit. Putting it on is however a bit of a challenge and we can only do it whilst he is laying down.
Have you looked at any of the ruff ware ones at all? They look to maybe have a less restrictive strap at the front but haven’t used one myself so can’t be certain..
anyone got any bright ideas?
