YOU CAN Teach an Old Dog New Tricks!! And Yourself too!!     When the time comes that our pets mobility is difficult, we begin to explore choosing  support and assistive products for our pets to help them stay Active.   This is a new beginning for a lot of pets and the pet owners. It also can be very stressful. Most dogs have never worn anything but a leash, cats, absolutely nothing at all.         So now it has become necessary to help our dogs (and cats) learn how to walk in the new support  device whether...

CONSERVATIVE healing for Knee injuries.  Good Morning from Walkabout! When your dog has a knee injury and is wearing the Walkabout knee brace remember to also restrict your pets activity while he or she is recovering. Usually doggy jail (life on a leash) is the best way to curtail bolting due to appearance of unexpected guests (THE SQUIRREL) and walking instead of running for at least the next two weeks is best.  Keep the knee brace on during busy parts of the day. Keeping your dog on a leash while indoors as well as outside is really important to prevent...

Happy New Year From Walkabout Harnesses, LLC Support Harnesses Boots and braces This year promise me when you buy products for your best friend be sure they have been properly tested on the pet population needing them.

Does the product support your pet in the wrong position? Too far forward, causing the tail end to drop?...

Gracie and Grandma

Here is the video of my Gracie and my 82-year old mom, Shirley.  Grace was 12 when we brought her in for tieback surgery for her Laryngeal Paralysis issues.  They found a tumor on her spleen and removed it instead of the tieback.  It was benign thank God.  So 6 months later or so in May 2016, she went in for the tieback as her breathing was getting very difficult for her. After 4 surgeries (2 failed tiebacks due to brittle cartiledge and a laryngectomy) then aspiration pneumonia while in the hospital, we thought she wouldn't make it...but she not only...

New Leash on Life

I want to say how much I appreciate your Walkabout Harness product. My 14 year old dog "Bowie" is now bone on bone on both elbows and is very limited in her ability to walk. She was even more limited this summer at our cabin on a lake in the high sierra's. Had it not been for your product, there would have been no way she could have enjoyed her boat rides. Getting her from the pier in and out of the boat with her Walkbout Harness gave her a "new leash on life." I work in the field of...
