Help 'Em Up Harness for Dogs
A full-body dog mobility harness recommended by veterinarians and physical therapists, featuring our patented Hip Lift!
The Help ‘Em Up Harness is a unique full-body lifting device that assists owners with aging dogs remain active when arthritis, hip dysplasia, muscle loss, or surgical repair impairs a pet’s mobility and physical strength for every day functions – from getting up off the floor, up and down the stairs, or in and out of cars.
Veterinarians, neurologists and nurses use the harness for dogs rehabilitating after surgery or recovering from injuries. By placing a handle over the hips, and the shoulders, the Help ‘Em Up safely lifts from underneath the torso allowing you to help your dog get up, along with overcoming the daily obstacles of aging and getting around.
It will also help you lift without stress by using the handles on the harness, as the Help ‘Em Up is designed to distribute weight over the large surfaces of the chest and hind quarters. Veterinarians, surgeons, nurses and rehab therapists find this product as a useful aid to help their patients be lifted more comfortably post-surgery and to help them rehabilitate more easily.
First and foremost, knowing your dogs total weight will help you determine what size harness you need. Go by the weight of your dog.
Our harness is fully adjustable. You can adjust to meet the unique characteristics of your dog’s dimensions. Each harness has a broad range within its size definition. Meaning – you can adjust the chest to a deep chest or a shallow one, a narrow waist to a plump waist, our harnesses have range! If your dog is on the cusp of two different sizes, we recommend sizing down.
Once a dog reaches a certain age (it’s different for all) they tend to stop adding on weight. So it’s best not to apply the “they’ll grow into it” method. If your dog is losing weight, project ahead. If your dog is recovering from any number of issues, surgery, injury etc… they might be up a few pounds. Once again the harness has added length to straps to accommodate changes.
