See how the Walkin’ Blind Dog Halo works!
Lightweight, flexible halo for blind dogs comes attached to comfortable harness/vest. The Blind Dog Halo allows poorly sighted dogs to better navigate whatever spaces they are in. The halo will bump into furniture, other dogs, or walls before your dog does! Builds confidence while allowing dog to participate in normal activities.
- Halo is lightweight and flexible.
- Halo comes attached to harness or vest, depending on dog’s size.
- Harness/vest provides high-quality comfort.
- Builds dog’s confidence.
- Allows dog to navigate spaces without bumping head.
- Helps dogs with poor vision due to SARDS, glaucoma, cataracts, retinal diseases, trauma, and diabetes.
- Suggested guidelines for getting your pet used to wearing the Halo are included with each Halo purchase.
Some breeds are more prone than others to develop cataracts: Boston Terrier, Cocker Spaniel, Golden Retriever, Maltese, Old English Sheepdog, Poodle, Samoyed, Schnauzer, Siberian Husky, Yorkshire Terrier. Glaucoma is more prevalent in Bouvier des Flandres, Shih Tzu, Siberian Husky.

Assembly & Usage Instructions
Instructions for Walkin’ Blind Dog Halo
How to Adjust the Halo Different anatomies of dogs make it possible that your halo may extend too far. If this is the case for your dog, bend the halo as in this photo to bring it closer to your dog’s nose and head.
- Unbend the halo to form a horseshoe shape. Halo should still have 90° bend.
- Adjust the harness/vest to fit snugly on the dog.
- Take the halo side that is not attached and slide the clip into the harness/vest.
- Put the screws back in on each side of harness/vest clip.
- Halo should encircle the dog’s head at forehead level and extend beyond tip of dog’s nose. Adjust halo so that it is parallel to the ground when on dog.
To provides additional stability to the halo when attached to the Walkin’ Lift Combo Harness:
1) Slide Velcro strip under strapping next to the top handle.
2) Wrap Velcro strip securely around both the handle and the halo, fastening snugly.
3) Do this on both sides.

Getting Help in the World of Blindness
Gus recently received his Blind Dog Halo. Our little angel has had such a hard time with this transition into the world of blindness. The Halo will make his transition easier. He is learning how to use it and loves it so far. Thank you, Walkin’ Pets, for this wonderful gift of independence.
No More Bumps!
Cooper recently went blind, so we decided to try out the new Blind Dog Halo. It worked instantaneously. He was no longer bumping his head on furniture, and was able to confidently walk around throughout the house! So happy we made the right decision to try it out.
In Love With Halo
Seriously – thank you! My new little foster was hurting my soul every time she hit another object with her little head. She is blind and deaf (neither of which I have had experience with). I found your Blind Dog Halo – and I am in love! And so is she! Within a day, she has got so much more spunk and confidence in moving around!
