Thank you for more quality time with our boy

I have been meaning to write to tell you what a lifesaver your rear harness has been as we have been caring for our dog who suffered aspinal stroke last year. Initially, we tried other harnesses, but your product has been the easiest and safest one by far for us to use. It has allowed us to assist him with all of his mobility and I don’t know how we would have managed without it. I just wanted to say thank you for a great product thathas allowed us to have more quality time with our boy. Sincerely, Tambi RondinoneLittleton,...

Corky in Kalamazoo

Dear Cathy & the Walkabout Staff,Our 11-1/2 year old Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Corky, was diagnosed with degenerative myelopathy late in the fall of 2001.  By early 2002, he could no longer use his back legs and was dragging himself around.  I was trying to walk him by holding his back legs like the handles of a wheelbarrow, and my  husband was carrying him in and out of doors.  We were both suffering from  back pain, and Corky was miserable, overweight, and very depressed.Through a link from the K-9 Carts website, we discovered the Walkabout  Harness.  We started using it on...

Bravo, the St. Bernard

Hi - Bravo asked me to write and thank you for his new back harness. I purchased it a couple of weeks ago from Handicapped Pets.Com. Using it he can now go outside and enjoy the sunshine and the snow. It also helps him to be clean. With its use he is now regaining the use of his hind legs - not an easy feat for a 175 pound St. Bernard. Thank you very much for helping to restore his life. John & Dorothy Grasso (and Bravo

Sandy the Snow Dog

Just thought you'd like to know that I got the boot on Sat. We had a good storm on Mon and she got to have a true test with it. I have to do the velcro pretty tight but it fits and isn't coming off in the snow. I'm sending a picture for you to see. Thanks, Katie

Thanks for all that you do

Hello Cathy, It has been awhile since we last emailed regarding Jazmen. The darling juvenile chewed the bootie to shreds. We decided to wait until she passes her puppy stage before attempting the bootie again. We have full intentions of fitting her when she is older because the bootie really makes a difference in how she walks and runs. You would be surprised to see her now, even though she is getting heavier, her limp is not as noticeable. I believe that one big toe has become very strong and developed some good scar tissue. Jazmen runs like a champ...

Tosh, the Chinese Crested

Aloha Cathy, I wanted to thank you for my Chinese Crested Tosh's walkabout. She is only 5 lbs. and has the use of 1 leg, on her good days. With the walkabout she is able to take care of her needs. We even uses it as a brace for her back and it supports her when we pick her up. She wears her walkabout most of the time and can even be seen walking the park (swinging really) or just hanging off my shoulder as a purse. Cathy, we would not be able to keep her with out the walkabout....

I got The Walkabout Rear Harness and it WORKS!

material (like a wet suit) is stretchy, strong and comfortable. It is easy to move your dog around even with a large dog (and I am a not so young female with a huge dog). They can go to the bathroom with it on and you can support them to do so. It is easy to clean and dries fast. It is easy to put on and to use.  I have tried the Bottoms Up Leash which was worthless on my 120 pound dog a few years ago as it just pulled his legs apart and made it harder or impossible...

Pongo, the Golden, from Pune, India

Dear all at WALKABOUT, On a sad day 3 years ago, Pongo, our Golden retriever suffered a sudden attack of myelitis. His waist, hind legs and tail was completely paralyzed. For six months he could not move and had to be nursed in house. My wife ‘Aruna’ and daughter ‘Tamanna’ were his constant companions, physio-therapists and nurses all rolled in to one. Dr. Vinay Gore the vet and Dr. Ashok Bhanage the neurologist were his saviors. Many internet searches later we found your site and my nephew in New Jersey sent a rear harness for him. The walkaboutharness gave him...

Thanks from Barkley

I just want to thank you from Barkley for such a great product. The harnesses were very helpful in his last week of his life. They made helping him up and supporting him while doing his business so much easier. I think he thought they made him look pretty cool also. Thanks again!The Osborne Pack
