Canine companions can be great company on road trips, but injuries and aging can hinder their mobility -- including the perhaps once simple act of jumping in and out of the car.
Luckily for your dog (and your back) a new breed of dog harnesses is designed to address both issues. The Ruffwear Web Master Harness helps dogs with physical challenges manage previously mundane activities.
Padded straps and handles strategically placed for balance and load dispersion help you help your buddy ascend and descend steps, get in and out of cars, and just plain walk when joints get jittery.
Once you've measured your dog to choose the right size harness, five points of adjustment, cushioned by foam-padded chest and belly straps, help fine-tune the fit. Two points of leash connection are fore and aft of the padded lift-handle.
The harness is a great mobility aid for challenged -- though not seriously feeble -- dogs.
Info: Web Master Harness comes in red or black in five sizes and costs $59.95. .
