Caution: Use only on dogs as an aid in lifting or restraint. The harness will need to be adjusted to properly fit each dog’s unique dimensions. Follow sizing instructions and refer to diagrams and fitting demonstrations. Do not leave it on your dog for over extended periods of time. Use it as needed and then remove. You can loosen straps on the harness when your dog is laying down in it and/or unclip the straps, especially around the hind-quarters, and then reclip into place for lifting. Watch for hot spots, chaffing or overheating with sensitive skin including areas under the legs, chest and hips. Take it off at night to give your dog a break. Machine wash and air dry for greater longevity.
