Best harness on the market
after several harnesses for my wee right hand man Kai I opted to give the ruffwear dbl back harness a try out for him .. I originally bought the harness for Kai to abseil off the In Pinn on the isle of Skye,after a hike up through the corrie and up the scree onto the final push to the base of the Pinn we came across some difficult terrain for Kai ,this secrion was made so much easier as kai was harnessed up with his new poece of kit .As kai struggled to climb a slab section he was easily lifted and passed to my fellow climber in a handbag style lift .The design of the harness is really good as kai disntbseem phased by whatwas in front of him .The hind leg straps.give amazing stabiltiy and when not in use tuck away into a small compartment on the harness. The material used feels is of good quality and looks like it will last for many adventure .So happy I chose the ruffwear harness for Kai as I have a lot of faith in the product as the safety and comfort of my dog is priority.
Thank you for your review, we are pleased Kai is a Ruffwear fan!
I first discovered the Double Back with my late pitbull who was an abused rescue with a lot of spinal pain and joint issues. We used it almost everyday, (medium size) it still looks new. But my new pup requires a large/extra large so I’m giving the medium to a friend and getting a large/extra large. I plan to use this one on our longer, tougher hikes where she’s really going to need assistance.
Just the assist we needed!
My aging 70lb Aussie mix was having hip issues after a fall (while trying to hoist himself into the bathtub, hiding & scared from July 4th fireworks). His back legs were “buckling” often and he was refusing to go up stairs and struggled to lift himself into a standing position. This harness was exactly what he needed to gain his confidence for stairs & standing!! Before I heard of Ruffwear I tried a sling thing that Akira hated, it hoisted him from underneath & was never nearby when needed as it wasn’t a harness but more like the old “towel under the belly” lift trick. Then I was deadlifting him & carrying him up & down the stairs to my apartment for weeks until I found Ruffwear! I wish more vets knew to suggest. The game changer about this harness is that it is smooth without any obstructions from him wearing it pretty much full time, with breaks here & there for full carpet back & belly roll arou da! Anyway, if you are looking for a harness to assist your aging or otherwise mobility-struggling dog, look no further!
