For those special needs pets whose back legs don’t work like they used to, we recommend WalkAbout harnesses. Just slip a WalkAbout over your dog’s back legs, secure the Velcro and snaps, grab the straps, and go. Your dog will move better with the extra help-and the convenient handles will make helping her easier on your back.
The WalkAbout is soft and flexible but super durable-we’ve used ours at Scout’s House for years and they’re still going strong. What’s more, its sturdy neoprene design endures repeated visits to the washer and dryer with no ill effects.
One of our all-time best sellers at Scout’s House.
