Amputee dog needed extra support

Amazing quality! My dog needed the extra support for stairs and walks and this had given a little extra coverage under her belly to make her more comfortable!

Brush Guard + WebMaster Harness

The Brush Guard was purchased to use along with the WebMaster Harness, with the goal of improving support and comfort by offsetting under belly pressure caused by the straps when using the handle to lift her. The Brush Guard does that very well, although the combination is cumbersome when wearing, and taking on and off. The Flagline Harness would probably be a better selection for my dog’s particular needs, so that could be in our future.

Awesome Harness

The brush guard helps to keep the harness from rubbing under his arms on walks and helps support him more when we lift him in and out of the car.

Ruffwear is with you through all chapters of life

We were initially introduced to Ruffwear products for hiking and outdoor adventures with our Great Dane (it's amazing to find a company whose products actually FIT a great dane!)… but now that he is older (10.5) and was recently diagnosed with an osteosarcoma requiring a forelimb amputation … low and behold Ruffwear is there with us. We purchased the brush guard with the webmaster pro harness and together they are perfect. The brush guard helps ensure that his weight is equally distributed when he needs a hand and together they are comfortable enough that he could wear them all day/night in the beginning. It says a lot about a company whose products are durable, well made and versatile enough to help you through so many life chapters (and also, thanks again for making Dane sized products!!)
