Nelson’s Flagline Harness Review: a Great Choice for Tripawds!

When Ruffwear introduced the Flagline Harness last Fall, we knew they were onto something special. And as you can see, Admiral Nelson James’ Flagline Harness Review proves it!

Here’s what his mom, Kat Endert, had to say about how the Flagline Harness works for her three-legged dog.

A Great Option for Front Leg Tripawd Nelson

Flagline harness review
Nelson loves his new Flagline.

We have been using the Webmaster harness with our front paw tripod Nelson for three years now, a recommendation of Tripawds when we first adopted him.

We were made aware of the the new Flagline harness again through Tripawds and decided to try it as we had found that lifting Nelson’s body and paw to put on the Webmaster was inconvenient at times.

We ordered the Extra Small size in Granite Grey for Nelson, a 15lb miniature schnauzer.

Lightweight and Easy to Use

Our first impression on taking the Flagline harness out of the package was how lightweight it was compared to the Webmaster.

The buckles on the extra small size Flagline are also smaller than on the extra smal Webmaster. This adds to the lighter weight and ease of using the harness.

We found using the Flagline to be a simple and quick process.

Overhead, slip-on design is a shining star!

The shining star for the Flagline is having the availability for the harness to be slipped over the head while keeping all paws on the ground.

It also is less complicated to use for those who are not familiar with these types of harnesses.

Even though lightweight, the Flagline provides a safe and secure harness for him while out on walks.

It has taken a few days to find the right adjustment for his size due to the fact there are six points to be adjusted on the harness and we found it to slide to his side easily.

Fits like a glove.

Once we found the perfect adjustment, the Flagline fits Nelson like a glove. Being able to keep all three paws on the ground keeps his balance and makes the placing of the harness a positive experience for him.

We are thrilled with this new product. It will work wonders for many other front paw tripod animals.

  1. The Flagline Harness is really good choice for a left front leg amputee. The dog can remain standing while you put it on. It is light and easy to put on and take off and very well made. Can’t live without the handle. As I much as I like the webmaster, getting it on my front leg amputee was incredibly really challenging, usually a two person project. I am a big fan of this brand.

  2. Amazing Mayzie is our newly adopted 17-day-old German Shepherd…well, Vet says she’s ~ 6 years old but regardless, she’s our “little” girl and is amazing. Anyway, the Flagline Harness for front amputees…left in Mayzie’s case…is in our Cart. But one more area to cover…car rides and how to secure her with the car seat belts. We have her ramp and the seat covers so just need a secure harness for Mayzie who loves car


    • Hi Claudette, thanks for adopting Mayzie! We replied to your email about this, with the following: The Flagline will work well for her and while it does have a handle on top that you can technically run a seat belt through, it has not been safety tested for this purpose. We do sell a seat belt extension that clips to the EzyDog Convert Harness, which we only sell with that harness (don’t recommend it for your girl). The clip can certainly attach to the D-ring of the Flagline, but again, this clip hasn’t been officially safety/crash tested (although it’s quite strong and we used it for our Shepherd Wyatt). If you purchase the Flagline from us I’m happy to have one of the EzyDog seatbelt extensions shipped to you for either the $10 or $20 cost plus $4.00 shipping. I can email you a separate payment link. Hope that makes sense. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions!
