Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!

Harnesses come in all styles and for all uses, but only a few work well on a Tripawd’s body. One of the newest dog harnesses that was good enough for the Tripawds Gear Shop is the Tripawd® Convert Harness by EzyDog. An ideal walking harness for any dog, the Convert is especially great for front-leg Tripawds!

About the EzyDog Convert Harness

If you’re looking for a great all-purpose walking harness for your three legged dog, the new Tripawd® Convert Harness by EzyDog is an exceptionally worthwhile gear investment.

With the removable custom “Tripawd” side patches, your three-legged hero will go out into the world wearing his three legged pride and looking snazzier than any four-legged dog!

EzyDog was founded by John Hatcher, a  Tripawds Supporter whose beloved dog Hurley was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2011. Hurley’s story is documented in his Tripawds blog, Hurley’s Journey. John’s company offers a wide selection of rugged outdoor gear for dogs, and we’re proud to bring you his latest creation, the Convert Harness.

Why We Love the Convert

Tripawd Amputee Dog Support HarnessWe love this walking harness for a lot of reasons but mainly because the Convert is the only harness we know of that was specifically prototyped on a front leg canine amputee (John’s dog, Hurley) before the final version was released. As a result, it will not rotate around the body of a dog missing a front leg, the way many other harnesses do.

When we tested the Convert on Tripawds Spokesdog Wyatt Ray, we were impressed with  features including:

  • A one-buckle system for easy and fast on and off use
  • There’s no stepping into or out of it; just place it over your dog’s head, buckle and go
  • The front chest strap sits across your dog’s chest instead of behind the front legs, which prevents chafing and irritation
  • A lightweight but rugged, durable and breathable body piece makes it warm-weather friendly
  • The handle is comfortable and large enough for any size hand

Whimpers

About the only thing we wish the Convert had was a design that would enable more evenly-placed body hoisting for Tripawds who need extra help. But remember:

  • This is specifically a walking harness, it is not a safety or mobility harness
  • You can use it to assist your dog getting into cars and up and down stairs
  • It is not intended for hoisting your dog entirely off the ground

Keep this in mind and you’ll find this is a great tool for active Tripawds. The Convert distributes load across the strongest point in your dog’s body, which  means that even if your dog pulls while on leash, the pulling won’t places excess stress around the throat the way a dog collar does.

Features and Benefits

The Tripawd® Convert Harness by EzyDog offers superior walking control and comfortable torso support for assisting dogs as needed.

Sizing Chart

If the measurement is close to the end of the size range, go up to the larger size.

Size Girth (inches) Girth (cm)
XXS 15-17” 38-43cm
XS 16.5-19” 42-48
S 20.5-24” 52-66cm
M 24.5-31” 62-79cm
L 27.5-35.5” 70-90cm

    Those are a cool option for front ampers!

    I love all the recommendations out for harnesses. Thank you! I am wanting to purchase one for a male Lab. What would be the best option as I do not have a need for more than one. He is a rear amputee, post 2 years now and in good health. He weighs 84 lbs. and we are keeping an eye on this hoping not to gain and maybe loose 4. Something to support him when we know we will be visiting family and have an urge for stairs and/or on short hikes…Really as the need may arise to have on hand. Is the Ruff Wear Harness the best for my dog? I saw the review on the previous model but wonder with some of the latest harnesses could there be even a better one. Thank you!

    Thanks for asking Susan! The Ruff Wear Webmaster is indeed a wonderful all-purpose harness that we do recommend for most dogs. Be sure to check out our harness feature comparison post for more help deciding which harness is best for your dog.

    You have great information and I did read everything….I have a need from time to time for one but not daily… I will take a look at that again. Seems some that give a lot or rear support or more for dogs needing more supprt and the Ruff wear good all around and much more affordable….Thank you!

    This sounds like a pawsome harness! I have the Webmaster and love it, but it is a little more than Taz needs most of the time. I’m going to have to give this a try for everyday walks. We love you guys and all you do!

  • 6    jerry // Aug 19, 2013 at 7:07 am

    Tazzy it’s great to hear from you! The Convert IS a great happy medium between full-on assistance and just a bit of help for walking. We think you’ll like it too.

    Hope you guys are doing well and safe from those fires! Keep us posted. xoxo

    We rescued a Lhasa mix who weighs 13 pounds and had her right front leg amputated 9 months earlier. After carefully measuring for size, I purchased an XS Ezy Dog Convert harness from another on-line site. Upon arrival, the Convert was an obviously a well-made harness and it fit Maggie very well. However, she would not take one step with the harness on and acted as if she was in pain. We think the belly strap impinged on the amputation site due to her small size coupled with the width of the nylon belly strap.
    We returned the harness and located an XS Comfort Flex harness at a local store. This well-made harness has the same configuration as the Convert harness but is very soft and well padded. The D-ring is attached to a loop of nylon strap so we can assist her going up or down stairs. She immediately walked and ran around the store without difficulty. After several weeks, we remain very pleased with the Comfort Flex harness for daily walks as well as all day outings. So if you have a toy dog amputee, the Comfort Flex harness is another great option to consider.

    Thanks for letting us know Jane. All dogs are different, you just never know how they will react to certain harnesses. For folks unfamiliar with the Comfort Flex harness, it is not an assitive device but rather a walking harness similar to ones used for musher dogs.
