Walkabout Harness is terrific!
posted 6 years ago
We have a dog with paralyzed back legs. She can walk somewhat with a reflex called a spinal walk, but she is wobbly and her feet knuckle under sometimes.
This is OK for getting around in the house, but not outside. We use a wheeled cart to go on walks, but it is too cumbersome to put her in and out of it and have to put it in the car to go to vet appointments. The Walkabout Harness we have was used a lot for several weeks until the custom wheeled cart arrived and continues to be used to transport her to and from the car when going to vet appointments. A big improvement over having to carry her - as she is about 55 pounds!
Pros: velcro closure keeps harness around dog; handles make it easy to hold dog's rear legs up so dog can walk using front legs; great for helping handicapped dog go up stairs and when transporting to and from vet appointments; washes great in a washing machine
Cons: not good for doing a lot of walking as your arms would get tired pretty fast!

My dogs hind legs went out one night. He could hardly walk and would fall on the floor. My Vet said just use a towel, this is the usual progression with older dogs. I put rugs all over the floors and when I walked my dog, I used the walkabout harness. It helped strenthen his legs and in about 6 weeks he was walking again, without help. It was a hard 6 weeks and from then on I used the harness for walks at the park. At home he didn't need it. He lived for 7 more months and died of something not associated with this. The harness helped him have a fairly good quality of life until the end. The harness is great. He was a larger dog, so I bought the bigger harness.
Pros: really helps to walk weak dogs
Cons: needs to be washed, if they "go" on it
