The Best Small Dog Harness That Helps Tripawds Too!

If you have a tiny, toy or very small breed Tripawd dog and want a great harness, we highly recommend the Ruffwear Front Range dog harness.

Got a Tiny Tripawd? Try the Front Range Harness!

For small Tripawds with a girth size under 22″, the Ruffwear Front Range harness is perfect. It’s not as heavy-duty as the Webmaster or the EzyDog Tripawd Convert harness, which are great for larger, heavier dogs — but sometimes too much harness for the daintiest Tripawds.

It’s ideal for walking a small breed Tripawd dog.

The Front Range harness doesn’t have a handle, so it’s not as easy to lift a dog with it, but  it has two leash attachment points. This is a great walking harness that prevents pulling on the neck with an easy-on/easy-off design. Perfect for around-the-block walks!

Easy-on, easy-off for all, especially three-legged dogs!

  1. I have a small 3 legged rescue 9.5 lbs.
    the right front leg was amputated. She has gotten out of several different collars and thankfully it was either in the house or fenced yard. She still doesn’t come when called and I am fearful of her getting loose as I don’t think I will ever get her. Can you help me?

    • Hi Michele! You’re pawesome for rescuing that pup, she sounds like a feisty little pup with lots of love to give. Well, I would say that the Front Range is indeed the best harness we’ve found for small Tripawds. Of course there’s no guarantee she can’t get out of it, but the company is known for making “Houdini Dog” harnesses, which is why we carry them. The Front Range combined with a trainer skilled in helping rescue dogs reach their full potential sounds like the ticket!

  2. Hello! I cannot tell you how glad I am to have found you guys! My family has adopted a front-leg amputee (we take custody tomorrow), he’s about 2 – a pit bull so what I’d call medium sized (we are formerly Great Dane people, most dogs considered large just aren’t to me 🙂 ) and he is my first front leg amputee – we have had a rear leg tripawd in the past who could wear a standard front clip harness (as we all know, missing a leg does NOT make these guys less likely to pull when on leash). I was wondering for a +/- 65 pound dog, if he does not (yet) need much support / lifting, is there any reason a Ruffwear Front Range would not work for him? I like both the Web Master and the Front Range but the Front Range having a clip in the front appeals to me as a big believer in front clip harnesses for pully dogs regardless of the number of legs they have. I am willing to purchase either or both (and he walks okay on a martingale collar too, I just like having a harness for my pups) but couldn’t outwardly see a reason the Front Range wouldn’t be reommended for bigger dogs and thought I might be missing something? Thanks!

    • Hi Jen, congrats on your new Tripawd, what a lucky dawg. There’s no reason why the Front Range can’t work on a larger dog, but we feel it’s not as beneficial for assisting when a Tripawd needs it most (such as getting in and out of the car, pooped out when we allow them to do too much walking, or navigating down stair cases). As your dog ages the Webmaster will be a handier tool overall. The Webmaster has a D-ring that you can attach a leash to, so it can be used that way too. Hope this helps. Keep us posted on your pup and remember the Tripawds Foundation Adoption Fund will reimburse up to $100 for your adoption fee.
