The Help Em Up Harness is one of the best full-body dog harnesses on the market, which is why it is expensive. Dog owners love the two built-in handles and the harness adjustability compared to other brands. This full-body lifting harness helps keep your dog active if they’re losing strength or mobility. The Help Em Up is excellent if your dog has arthritis, hip dysplasia, muscle loss, or is recovering from surgery or an injury, and needs help getting up from the floor, up and down stairs or in and out of the car. The Help Em Up harness is designed with built-in handles at the hips and shoulders which means the lift comes from underneath your dog’s torso, and your dog’s weight is distributed over the surface areas of the chest and hindquarters. This makes lifting safer for your dog and your own musculoskeletal health. Choose the right size based on your dog's weight for optimal effectiveness.

  • Use the built-in handles to lift your dog in comfort
  • Excellent for getting them up off the floor, up and down stairs or in and out of the car
  • Excellent for dogs who are ageing, have rear leg weakness, muscle loss, hip dysplasia, or recovering from surgery or injury
  • Can be worn for extended periods but give your dog breaks
  • Pick the right hip lift for male dogs - if your dog’s penis is located further back or is between their legs choose the U-Band hip lift
  • Machine washable set on delicate cycle, using mild detergent. Air dry

Review: "Last spring, my dog was in a terrible accident and was paralysed from the waist back. He had no movement in his back legs at all. Little by little, and with lots of therapy, he was able to regain his ability to walk. Honestly I don’t think we could have done it without the Help Em Up Harness. The ease of using the two handles on the harness helped us to get him around and in and out of the car for all those rehab visits. Your invention played a huge part in Pal’s recovery! We hope this inspires other folks if they find themselves and their pup in the same situation." [Cara]  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Help Em Up Size Guide

To choose the right size Help ‘Em Up Harness for your dog, you need to know your dog’s weight. Once you’ve picked using your dog’s weight you can then double check your dog’s dimensions. There’s some extra strap if your dog is 1-2” over the measurements listed for chest, waist, and neck. So if you base size on the weight of your dog and it falls within the measurements, you’d order that size. The harness is fully adjustable, so it can be adjusted up or down, based on your dog’s dimensions.

If your dog’s in between two different harness sizes based on weight, this is when you will need to look at your dog’s measurements as well.

NB: If a dog is on the cusp of two different sizes, the recommendation is to size down a harness size (e.g. a 35kg/78lbs lab would likely wear a medium, and a 52kg/115lb husky would like wear a large - but you’d double check measurements)

Male dogs

For most male dogs, the conventional belly band fits in front of the hind legs, behind the penis. The whole penis shown here is father forward of the hind legs. You need about 1-2 inches of space behind the penis in front of the hind legs for the conventional band (the sold belly band to fit)

Otherwise, if your dog’s one of the 20 - 25% who have the tip of their penis starting further back between their legs, he’ll need the U-Band shape. This provides an easy opening so they can urinate freely. (see picture - the penis is between or even with the front of the hind legs).

Help ‘Em Up Harness

The Help ‘Em Up Harness is a unique full-body lifting device that assists owners with aging dogs to remain active when arthritis, hip dysplasia, muscle loss, or surgical repair impairs a pet’s mobility and physical strength for everyday functions – from getting up off the floor, up and down the stairs, or in and out of cars.

Veterinarians, neurologists, and nurses use the harness for dogs rehabilitating after surgery or recovering from injuries. By placing a handle over the hips and the shoulders, the Help ‘Em Up harness safely lifts from underneath the torso, allowing you to help your dog get up and overcome the daily obstacles of aging and getting around.

Our harness will also help you lift without stress by using the built-in handles, as the Help ‘Em Up harness is designed to distribute weight over the large support surfaces of the chest and hind quarters. Veterinarians, surgeons, nurses, and rehab therapists find our product to be a useful aid in helping their patients be lifted more comfortably post-surgery and rehabilitated more easily.

Is it possible for my dog to urinate and defecate wearing the dog harness?

Yes! Neither males or females have problems defecating with the dog harness – as the support straps that come up between their hind legs are held apart by the dogs tail, giving consistent clearance for defecation. Female dogs have no urinating issues for the same reason. Most male dogs can use the conventional harness without issue, as their penis generally will come out in front of the belly band – giving them good clearance to urinate. However, for those male dogs whose penis starts further back, between their hind legs, the tip of their penis may be partially covered by the belly band. For them we have a male version that provides a cutout for penis clearance.

Is my dog lifting harness washable?

Yes, all of our dog lifting harnesses can be machine or hand washed – but we recommend air drying. Dryers tend to dry out the neoprene over time. We do not recommend the use of bleach or other harsh detergents but mild soaps work great. Urine odor can be a problem so try to clean regularly and white vinegar and water in a 1 to 3 percentage works pretty well to cut the smell. There are also commercial cleaners available that can help to cut odor. Ask your favourite pet supplier for recommendations.

How long can I leave the Help ’Em Up harness on my dog?

It can be worn for extended periods; however, we suggest that you give your dog breaks from wearing it. Let them sleep without it if possible or if you have a dog that needs a potty trip at 3am, take it off after they return. Also, watch for them chewing on it when left alone. If you are leaving it on for extended periods, please check for hot spots and overheating as it can become uncomfortable for your dog if left on for too long a time.
