Kisse the Cat

This is Kissie, my 3 year old Siamese Snowshoe. She suffered major trauma to her spine and her right hind leg was broken in 2 places while still in the womb. This resulted in little feeling in her hind legs and therefore unable to walk. She had surgery for the breaks in her leg. When she was 5 months old she began biting the toes on both hind legs. The neurologist was not sure if this was due to intermittent pain or just strange sensations in legs that have almost no feeling. The right one had to be amputated due...

Rocky the Pug

Here's my Rocky in his Walkabout Knee support! He wears it outside for walks and is no longer afraid to go up & down curbs.. He wears it inside for going up & down the stairs! (I got him a collar from a local dollarstore and I made it bigger for the support to attach to, as you know pugs aren't supposed to wear collars..) He's still dragging his foot a little but his right patella is no longer going to the side of his leg, it's right where it should be...Money absolutely well spent! Lisanne Bond & Rocky!

Maggie

​All of us who contact Walkabout Harnesses have a story. And it involves this incredible love for some canine (or feline) kid. I know in the case of my little dog Maggie, and her torn cruciate knee ligament, I was half out of my mind, despairing what to do. We want so badly to help these sweet creatures who give us so much love – and depend on us.I can’t begin to praise Cathy Erwin – and her business Walkabout Harnesses – highly enough. She was stellar from start to finish. I’ve never experienced such caring from a business before....

Dutchess

I wanted to share with you about my girl Dutchess. We just received the Walkaboot a few days ago and it is making a huge difference on our walks. I also ordered the JAWS boots for our slippery floors. Dutchess sustained a shotgun wound to her left femur as a stray around five years of age. Her left rear leg is functionally shorter and it slips out from under her, especially now that she is almost 19 years old(!). With the Walkaboot she is much more comfortable and confident. Thank you for a great product!

I can't say enough good things about Walkabout

"I can't say enough good things about Walkabout. Not only is the harness well made, Cathy did everything to make me a happy customer. My vet had never seen a Walkabout harness and they were impressed. I use it to help my Shepard mix when steps are either steep or long. She doesn't mind having it on or having me give her a little assist when needed."Kathy Vejtasa

Duke

Hi Cathy, I just wanted to let you know the we received the Walk-a-bout harness for Duke and it has been a Godsend! Not only is it helping him to use his legs, but it's saving MY bac kas well. Duke feels like he's regained some of his freedom with the help of the harness. He's even running using it! Thank you so much for your help.Your advice about the size was right on. Had I gone with the medium, it would have been way too large. Hopefully we won't have to use it for long!  Gratefully, Donna DeGrau

Temple Ranch Hand

Cathy,  I want to thank you for a great product.  In short, I had a 12 year old black lab that had nerve damage in his spine due to years of hunting, which led to his rear legs not working.  My wife found your products online and we began to use the harness on him.  We rehabilitated him three times over a year and a half.  If it wasn’t for your product I would have been forced to put him to sleep the first time he lost the use of his rear legs.  You made his last 2 years of life...

Hoppy the Yorky

Happy “Hoppy” wasn’t always this happy. He was an abused, neglected little guy found wandering the streets of Manhattan, rescued from a shelter by Save a Yorkie Rescue, and transported to a foster home in Pennsylvania until we adopted the little guy. It has been a year Aug. 8th since we brought Hoppy home. It’s been a struggle at times, as Hoppy has a lot of traumatic and fearful memories to overcome. But with a lot of prayers, a new helpful, caring friend (Debbie Winkler, Animal Behaviorist), and a lot of perseverance, Hoppy is making remarkable progress. Somewhere during the...

Otto the HUGE Dane

Attached are photos of Otto that I took this afternoon. This results after only two and 1/2 weeks are amazing. We have gone through so many attempts with my poor Otto this past year and one half. I cannot thank you enough for being "big enough" to refer me to Cathy at WalkaboutHarness....She has been fantastic....We are going to go to some ventilated boots which she will be making on Monday....These photos should make you smile and give you a "Halo" for referring us. First two photos ...963 and 964 ...are of the right paw which was the really bad...
