The CareLift Dog Lifting Harness May Help Tripawds with Rear End Weakness

For a long time now we’ve searched for a high quality, rear leg mobility dog lifting harness that works on both front and rear leg amputee dogs with rear leg weakness. Sadly, we haven’t found one yet. However, here’s one we just discovered that may come close for Tripawd canine heroes. The PetSafe Solvit CareLift Full-Body Lifting Harness.

The PetSafe Solvit Rear Leg Mobility Dog Lifting Harness for Dogs with Hind End Weakness

When it comes to rear-leg amputees like Tripawds Spokesdog Wyatt Ray, finding a rear leg dog lifting harness that works is tricky. It all depends on the dog’s build, and how much stump is left after amputation surgery. But just when we thought that the Ruffwear Doubleback harness wouldn’t work for rear-leg amputees, along comes Tripawd Haiku, another rear-legger whose mom made this creative Doubleback harness hack. You just never know until you give something a try!

Normally we personally review all of the products you see featured in the Tripawds Gear Store. But through the years we’ve had so many people ask us for another lifting harness option for their rear leg amputee, that we are making an exception. Again, we have NOT tried this ourselves, but FYI here is another option that seems promising.

The PetSafe Solvit CareLift Full-Body Lifting Harness, which gets mostly great reviews on Amazon. And now we want to see what YOU think about it.

PetSafe Solvit CareLift™ Full-Body Lifting Harness

Mobility Dog Lifting Harness
The harness can be worn as a two or one piece unit.

For older, injured or invalid dogs, the CareLift™ lifting harness provides a convenient and safe way to improve pet’s mobility. The harness can be used with the rear section only, front section only, or with both front and rear sections for dogs that need more assistance.


  • Convenient and safe way to improve mobility for older, injured or invalid dogs, or those recuperating from surgery
  • Front and rear sections which can be used independently or in combination for maximum lifting assistance
  • When used together, front and rear sections can be comfortably worn full-time; if only rear section is used, must be installed for each use
  • Unique design reduces stress by lifting hips and abdomen together
  • Includes specially-shaped protector panel for males (removes for females)
  • Excellent for assisting pets up stairs, into vehicles, onto furniture, outside for walk or bathroom break
  • Available in 3 sizes

Measure your dog’s girth and waist carefully for the best fit.

One thing that’s extra nice about this harness is you can buy a separate rear-leg section to get the right fit on narrow-waisted dogs.

If your dog has a narrow waist, you may want to buy the rear-piece separately.

Like any product, people have different experiences. As you can see in Amazon Reviews for the harness, most people say it’s a lifesaver. A few didn’t, citing that it was too complicated. And one reviewer cautions against leaving it on for long periods of time without consistently checking for chafing on the sensitive skin of a dog’s groin. Thoroughly read reviews before buying to help you decide whether it’s right for your Tripawd.

If you try the PetSafe Solvit CareLift Full-Body Lifting Harness please share your experiences with us, we want to know how you and your Tripawd hero liked it. We hope it’s a great experience so keep us posted.

  1. The solvit carelift full body lifting harness does NOT work on a dog with a rear leg amputation. Even before the amputation, the harness was complicated to put on the dog and use, difficult to adjust all the straps go fit the fog and just plain useless. A waste of money. I paid around $100 from Petbarn NSW.

    • So sorry it didn’t work out for you. As we mention in the review, it may help, and it comes close, depending on how much of a stump the dog has left. Our own Wyatt Ray has a partial stump, so the leg straps kind of work. We do find that the Custom Pet Support Suit really is the best harness for rear leg amputee dogs who need a higher level support. It’s not cheap, but it does the job.
