All You Need to Know About Senior Dog Walking Assistance

For the unaware, a dog sling is essentially a sling that wraps around your dog’s body with a long handle.

Once you wrap it around your dog, you can pull up gently on the handle to take some of the weight off your dog’s legs, hips or spine. Dog sling give you a way to support your mobility-limited dog and help her get around without requiring a full on wheelchair.

For example, most dog sling are completely built from flexible fabrics, but a few feature reinforced handles and other components (which may be essential for lifting a heavier dog).

Note that the term “dog sling” is usually applied to harnesses that are specifically designed to support a dog via her belly area. This distinguishes it from “amputee harnesses” or “rear-end harnesses,” among other types.

What Are Walking Assistance Used For?

  • Helping your dog negotiate stairs. If your dog is able to get around fairly well, but needs help getting up and down the stairs, you’ll just want to lift up gently on the harness handle while walking beside her. Don’t try to lift her off the ground, just take some of the weight off her hips and legs. Just be sure that you proceed slowly and grip the handrail with your other hand to ensure you don’t lose your balance.
  • Helping your dog hop into the car. You don’t want to make a dog with ailing hips or joints jump up into or out of a car, so your best bet is to use a dog sling, which allows you to lift your pup by the harness. If your dog is too heavy to lift confidently, you should invest in a good ramp to allow her to enter and exit the car.
  • Helping your dog go outside to poop or pee. Even dogs with severe limitations have to go outside to sniff around and relieve themselves, but they’ll obviously need help doing so. In such cases, you’ll have to walk a fine line between providing enough support to help your dog stand and move, yet without infringing on her ability to assume the position and answer nature’s call. If your dog needs support while going to the bathroom, be sure to select a lift harness that doesn’t cover her parts – otherwise, you’ll just have to take the harness off, which defeats the entire purpose.
  • Helping your semi-mobile dog go for a walk.  Dogs that have relatively minor limitations may still enjoy (and benefit from) going on short walks. Owners of such dogs will likely want to use a standard harness with a handle on the back . This way, you can provide a little bit of extra help to your pup, while still being able to walk comfortably yourself.

How It Works

No more bending to help your dog up. Now all you have to do is slide the sling under your dog’s abdomen and move it down underneath his hips. Pulling up on the handles will allow you to support your pet’s hind end or lift him up slightly to help with stairs.

Considerations When Buying Walking Assistance

Size

Each manufacturer has a different idea of what makes a “small” or “large” dog. Double check the sizing chart of a harness before you buy to ensure you’re getting the right fit. Harnesses also have maximum weights, which is something to keep in mind for giant breeds.

Materials

If your dog will be using the harness or sling frequently, you’ll probably want a material that’s machine washable. Nylon fits this bill, though make sure that any strap that rests against your dog’s skin is padded with fleece or foam.

The body of the sling or harness should also be washable. It must be both sturdy and reasonably breathable. Cotton is a natural fabric and the least likely to cause skin problems, though many harnesses and slings are made out of nylon or polyester.

Cost

Is it affordable? A harness is an investment, so don’t go for the easy bargain. But you should be able to find a good option at a reasonable price.

Comfort

A close fit is a good fit. Loose harnesses or slings that slide or slip will chafe skin or even put pressure in the wrong places, potentially causing muscle and joint strain. However, too tight a fit can restrict blood flow and cause skin irritation or worse. If it’s not possible for your dog to try on the harness before you buy it – and for online purchases, it obviously isn’t – make sure you measure your dog according to the manufacturer’s specifications for picking out the right size. Also, consider getting an adjustable harness to ensure a customized fit.

Design

A good sling or harness spreads your dog’s body weight over a larger area so that straps don’t dig into them when you lift. A harness for lifting your entire dog off the ground should feature multiple secure straps that distribute weight evenly without putting undue pressure on the shoulders or hips. The sling or harness shouldn’t slide while in use. Finally, for your sake, the harness should be the right height to allow you to support your dog comfortably without straining your arms.

Health & Washable

This is a vital consideration when choosing a dog sling. Some dog slinges come in both male and female versions.

Is the sling machine washable? While dog sling don’t suffer from as much wear-and-tear as regular harnesses, they are still likely to get dirty or soiled. A machine-washable design can make maintenance much easier.
