What’s the Best Tripawd Harness?

Let’s take a look at the most popular harnesses in our Tripawds Gear Store. These harnesses all work well for front or rear leg amputees, with missing fore limbs or rear.

The Web Master Plus Brush Guard

Made by our friends at Ruffwear, the Webmaster Plus harness combo is our number one selling all-purpose Tripawd harness. Most people find it works well for their front or left leg amputee, in any situation. Made with rugged, durable material, this harness will last most dogs for many years, if not a lifetime.

The Webmaster Plus (with Brush Guard)

The Web Master Plus is a combination of the Web Master harness and a detachable bottom piece called the Brush Guard. The Web Master can be used without the Brush Guard, but when combined, the two devices offer more comfort to your dog when you lift and assist during activities. It is also a “Houdini-Proof” harness that prevents even the wiggliest dogs from escaping. Watch Review Video.

  1. Hello,
    my 11yro 65-70 lb. labx Blue was the victim of a traumatic dog attack resulting in both front legs being badly damaged. He lost the left front leg, the right front leg is healing but extremely weak. We had to teach him to weight bear on the hind legs again because he was down for so long. He is getting stronger every day in the rear, but the front leg is still healing wounds and much slower, but will do slight weight bearing. We don’t know how much strength he’ll recover in the front leg or if he will be able to walk on it with a normal range of motion. Due to his age and condition what harness would you recommend for him?

    • Hi Wanda. It still sounds like the Webmaster Plus would be your best bet. So sorry about your pup, how terrible! Thank Dog he survived. If you haven’t already please get him into rehab therapy, the Tripawds Foundation may even pay for your first consult. Keep us posted on how he’s doing.

  2. I just got the Ruffwear Webmaster Plus with brush guard. It appears to be a great product, well made and I believe I have the correct size. The problem is that in order to put it on the dog I have to pull his right front leg thru the harness after it is slipped over his head. He lost his right rear leg so that means that while putting it on or taking it off he has no ability to balance himself. I am finding it very difficult to hold him up while putting it on/off. Suggestions? Do I need a different style or a different method? I see a way to modify it but am hesitant to have to pay someone to modify a harness I paid so much for. Thank you.

  3. Hi there. I recently adopted a Pitbull and she had a traumatic experience which resulted in her losing her front right leg. She is super fast and doesn’t seem to be bothered, but I’d like to make her as comfortable as possible. If you can recommend the best harness? Thanks so much!

  4. Hello,
    We have a 10 month old hound mix who lost his front left leg to a car accident before we adopted him. We bought an EzyDog Convert Trail-Ready Dog Harness to take him trail walking with us but it continually turns through out the hike. Can you please suggest anything we can do to make the harness fit better or if there is a better option for us?

    • Hi Kristina. Thanks for adopting your sweet pup! Unfortunately all harnesses will shift a little on dogs missing a front leg, but the ones we carry shift the least. First, I’m wondering: are you sure you measured correctly? Remember, you’re measuring the widest part of a dog’s rib cage to get a good fit. Usually that area is an inch or two behind the armpit, not in the armpit itself. If tightening the chest strap doesn’t work to keep the harness straight, you may want to give the Ruffwear Flagline Harness a try. We find that it’s now the best for front-leg amputees.

  5. Hello. We are preparing to have our 9 yo Great Pyrenees, 108 lbs, left leg amputated. I want to be prepared so am wondering what harness is recommended. She has a big chest/shoulders and small hips and long legs. She’s a bit of a slow walker and doesn’t like hardwood… I know it’ll be up to me to help her up and navigate our house and yard. Is there one I can strap to my body to help with lifts and walking so I can bear some of the weight? My back isn’t the best either so I’d rather lift this way instead of using handles if I can. Thank you!

  6. My pet, Sinder, is a pit bull rear leg amputee thanks to osteosarcoma. We struggle to help him up when he is laying or sitting which we do plenty of. We need a rear harness that we can leave on him. He hates front harnesses and will not leave them on as we tried a ‘help em up harness’ and it was a no go. Any recommendations?

    • The best thing you can do for Sinder is consult with a certified canine rehab therapist to address the underlying issue causing immobility. Visit a CCRT or CCRP and the Tripawds Foundation can even pay for your first visit! See how to find rehab here.

      If you find a rear-only/hip-lift harness that will stay on a rear-leg Tripawd, let us know! (We’ve tried many.) Or consider using a DIY dog sling when assistance is required. Good luck.
