20% of male dogs will go best in U-Band design Help Em Up rather than the Classic Help Em Up Harness, as their penis is positioned further back between the hind legs. The U-shaped opening helps them to urinate freely and is therefore more comfortable. The harness is a complete set and comes with the front and rear harness parts. Look at the diagram to understand if your dog would be best in a U-Band or Classic.

The Help Em Up harness is one of the best on the market because it has two handles over the shoulder and hips, and the straps are extremely adjustable for comfort.

  • Best for 20% of male dogs whose penis is located further back
  • A complete front and rear harness
  • Very adjustable harness
  • Great support over shoulders and hips

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)

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.
