Silver Tails Easy-Lift Rear Harness
Always there when they need help.
The harness is easy to put on our old, arthritic Beardie. I don't think she even knows it is on her, but whenever her back end starts sliding out on a slippery floor, or she needs help on the steps, I can grab the back handle and give her some gentle support. The "log carrier" type of support is difficult to get under them if they are lying down and never within reach when you need it.

This was just what I was looking for.
I researched this particular brand and style for function. This style of harness was recommended; because it would give the ability to lift the dog, with out putting pressure on his kidneys, or underside. It is nice to be able to leave it on the dog all of the time. It is nice to be able to quickly help him up if needed if he changed positions in the house. I appreciated the extra leash you can attach to the back when taking him outside. You do need to watch that is stays comfortable snug around the legs, or it can slide off when the dog may scoot on the floor. Fosters and Smith sold it for the lowest price!

this product not for all dogs
I have a 15 yr old lab that no longer is able to walk or stand for too long. Thinking that this would help support her back legs, I found it to be more of a pain for her and uncomfortable. Although this products was well made, it did not work well for our dog to help her get around. So returned it and found another Harness (another co) that might work better for her walking. It seems to support her chest and a harness under her belly as well. If your dog is able to walk, this just might give them that little extra support but not good if your dog has trouble moving their legs...

I have a very arthritic 8 year old Rottie who was limping terribly all the time, but still wanted to go for walks even though she seemed to be in a lot of pain after. I was worried we would have to put her down coz of it, so started looking for something to aid her, found Silver Tails ,what a difference this product has made in her life....Took all the pressure off her hips and she is no longer limping .....I truly believe this product has extended this dogs life....Thank you so much I will be able to enjoy my girl a few years more!
