Evolution of the Ruff Wear Web Master Harness

Have you seen the new Ruff Wear Web Master Harness features? They’re great! We’re impressed and want to share them with you in this quick overview. Stay tuned for a new in-depth review, or check out our original Ruff Wear Harness review and demo video.

You’ve Come a Long Way, Web Master

The Web Master has truly evolved into the best dog harness, especially for Tripawds. Just take a look at the very first version that Spirit Jerry wore, way back in 2007:

Next, the Web Master morphed into this sporty, handy harness and assistive aid, perfect for three legged heroes!

When the 2008 version was released, we thought the Ruff Wear harness couldn’t get any better:

Now, in 2012, the Web Master Harness is better fitting, more durable and useful than ever! Ruff Wear has outdone itself, yet again. Tripawd dogs have never had it better!

Things to Love about the New Web Master

Impressive new features in Ruff Wear’s 2012 Web Master design include:

  • Side buckle protectors reduce wear and tear
  • Durable material is lighter, more breathable than ever
  • Tailored fit helps harness stay put on front and rear leg Tripawds

  1. I still think they need to provide torso length for their harnesses- it would help choose a size, or choose not to buy a Ruff Wear for the harder to fit dogs. In my case- relatively big chest girth and short body length.


  2. Any way of having one made or having D rings added? need a harness for riding in the sidecar ….The one i used to use is a pulling harness with a D ring on top and one on each side to attach straps on each side to keep me in the sidecar…….any ideas? Thanks

    • Good question, thanks for asking! The Web Master does have a sturdy D-ring centered in front of the handle on the back. Any additional rings would have to be added yourself, but would void the warranty. Hope this helps!

  3. Karen, the next time the harness will be re-designed will be in 2016. I agree, having a torso length measurement would be really helpful. I’ll try to remember to bring this up with them.e

  4. My lab mix is going to have a front right leg amputation in two weeks and I am wondering if I can use this immediately when I pick her up post op or will the chest strap potentially shifting around irritate her incision?

    • Thanks for asking Maddy. We recommend not using the harness until the surgery has completely healed and stitches or staples are removed. We have heard of no specific cases where any harness has hampered healing, but we believe direct pressure from the straps may irritate the wound. Please consult your veterinarian with any concerns.

      We suggest using a soft towel slung under the belly if additional support is required in the meantime. A reusable canvas shopping bag slit down the sides also makes a handy temporary sling. Please see our complete Ruff Wear Harness review for more details. You will find much more help, support and advice in the Tripawds discussion forums.

  5. Would you recommend these harnesses for 4 legged dogs with serious back leg/hip arthritis? Our dog has difficulty with stairs and unable to get into our suv anymore. we need to lift his heavy 75lb long torso body into the car.
    If this product would be good for our pet, which harness would you recommend?
    Thank you for your help. Pam M
