  1. I’m wondering how well this works on a dog with a front leg amputated?

    • @erin The AST harness works even better on front leg amputee dogs as most of the support is up front under the chest. Don’t miss our original AST review and demo video featuring Jerry, who was missing a front leg. FYI: The harness shown in this original demo is only slightly different, the new one has been improved.

    This would be great for my rear leg amputee who is a large dog, but can a long leash be used to give the dog more freedom and space? This looks good for lifting, but I don’t walk my dog this close to me.

    • Thanks for asking Joanne. The Get A Grip is really designed as much more of a support harness than a walking harness. You could theoretically attach a leach to one of the handle/loop rings, but there is no centered ring like you’ll find on the Web Master harness. Or just attach the leash to your dog’s collar as usual when walking about and use the harness for support as needed.

      Hope this answers your question! Consider posting in the forums for advice from other users.

  3. I am looking for a way to support my dachshund as she moves up stairs, in and out of the car, without having to bend over. Do the straps extend far enough to go from my hand to near the ground?

    • Donna, the optional Shoulder Straps would allow you to use the Get A Grip harness without bending over. Please be sure to measure your Dachshund carefully. The AST Custom Pet Support Suit may be a much better option for such smaller dogs with a long body.

  4. It looks like the product would hit right at the surgical area for a front leg amputee and be painful but that’s not the case? And it won’t shift around w/o the second shoulder to fill it out?

    • Hi Kelly, correct, the harness would touch the incision area but there are no straps to cut into it, it’s a comfortable fit even for a front-leg amputee. We had no problems with it shifting on our front-leg Tripawd Jerry. If you have more questions please feel free to contact us via email. Thanks so much!

  5. My friends German Shepard cannot use his back legs. I’m interested in seeing how the shoulder strap actually looks with the harness, where it attaches, etc. She is quite petite, and I’m just wondering if the harness w/shoulder strap might be a solution for getting her dog out to go to the bathroom. I didn’t see any pix of the strap.

    Thank you.

  6. Does anyone have experience with the AST custome made for greyhounds? My dog, Abe, is getting weaker now that he’s 8 years old. Lost his leg at age 2 1/2 – unattended racing injury. Can I get a harness to custom fit a greyhound?
    – Thanks

  7. Hi, I have an 11.5 year old retired Military Working Dog. He has neurological spinal damage and has a permanent low profile Urinary port. Because of his spinal damage and myelopathy, he needs support for his rear legs. He cannot have a long harness because the port is placed above his penis, towards the rear leg fold. This seems to be right where the harnesses support the dog. Do you have any suggestions for us as to which harness would be best for him? He is 90 pounds. THANKS!

  8. I have a 70 pound pit bull about to right hind leg which harness would i need for her

    I have an Irish Wolfhound who is 80 kilos about 180 pounds. He isb110 around his girth. I really need a harness to assist lifting him is there anything big enough for him

  10. The large get a grip has no handles included. How do you lift them

  11. Great! I just ordered a medium for Oreo. She’s between sizes; 28″ girth, 14″ length. I got the shoulder strap so I don’t end up in a wheelchair trying to help her walk, lol. I’ll post a product review when we start using it.
