The Buddy Up Harness helps pet parents give their aging, injured, or disabled dogs that extra lift!
Many pet owners need to help their dogs up or down stairs, in and out of vehicles, and with their daily routines. The Buddy Up Harness supports positive pet aging by making life easier for dogs and their owners. The dog harness can also be easily clipped into the Walkin’ Wheels dog wheelchair, which is an added bonus, providing a continuum of care. This compatibility feature with the Walkin’ Wheels makes the transition to a dog wheelchair easier, if that becomes necessary, because the dog will already be used to being helped with the harness. The adjustable harness handles were strategically designed to help protect the pet caretaker’s own back from undue stress.
“Having spent years in the dog wheelchair business, I wanted a product that would give dogs balanced, full body support without creating hotspots or pressure points. The Buddy Up Harness is a product that’s very comfortable and safe for dogs and works equally well for pet owners.”
Mark C. Robinson, Founder & CEO of Walkin’ Pets
