Dog harnesses created specifically to meet the needs of Tripawd dogs don’t exist yet, but companies are getting closer as Tripawd Awareness grows. We’re thrilled to say that EzyDog’s new Convert Harness is the closest harness to meet the needs of front leg Tripawds, better than any other on the market.
Tripawd Nicky is a Convert Fan
As you can see, the EzyDog Convert Harness straps doesn’t require front legs to keep the harness steady. With one chest strap across the front and a second under-belly quick-release strap, the “anti-roll” design is unique to dog harnesses.
Nicky’s mom, Michaela Walker, recently wrote to tell us why the Convert Harness works so great on front leg Tripawds.
I easily adjusted the chest piece which is Velcro and then slipped that over his head. A small adjustment to the waist band then clicked it into the solid click buckle.
It is so simple to use. I put on the lead and Nicky immediately got excited we were off for a walk. I was able to run him by my scooter and the harness stayed safe and secure. He was able to move freely and finally had no pressure on his neck from his collar.
I released him to run with his harness on and he could run freely without the harness slipping. This is the first time this has happened, being a front leg amputee he has no stump to anchor most harnesses to. There is a good handle on the harness to offer support if he should need it, at present it is not.
I am delighted with the Convert and would recommend it. The good thing also is that it does not rub him or leave bald areas so he can keep his good looks!”

Please keep in mind that the Convert will not usually rotate around the body of a dog missing a front leg, the way many other harnesses do. But, because all dogs are different, we can’t guarantee that it won’t rotate. If you try it and are unhappy with the fit please contact us immediately.
