I purchased your Helpemup for my 11 year-old, 110 lb. Rhodesian Ridgeback, Henry James. Henry had a total hip replacement. His non-surgical hip is very arthritic, so his recovery has been extremely difficult. As a canine physical therapist, I have access to a myriad of devices that are allegedly supposed to make the job of carting around a 100+ lb. dog easier – products I’ve often recommended to my clients as well. The best thing (and the ONLY thing that really worked with a reasonable degree of success) I’ve found is your harness. I can now lift Henry into a standing position by myself (until now it has been a 2-person operation) and he outweighs me! The other major benefit of your harness is that it allows the dog to place his feet correctly and actually walk without the hindrance of a sling. I am well able to control the amount of weight that Henry places on his back legs, which also makes the HelpEmUp Harness a great rehab device. Way to go!
