Nemo underwent a Tibial Plateau Leveling Osteotomy. This RuffWear 'Webmaster' harness made a real difference in my dog's recovery.
The Webmaster comes with snap-together closures for easy on and off, however, I've kept the harness on Nemo since his surgery on January 2nd. Once adjusted the harness slips over his head like a collar. Another strap runs across the chest, just behind the front legs. The third strap rides in front of the hind legs. There is a cross piece tying the collar to the chest strap as well.
Titularly, the harness creates a 'web' of support under your dog! Said web allowed me to lift a doped up Great Pyrenees with a sawed-on leg up 3-sets of 27 total stairs without hurting the dog!
Webmaster was the silliest dot-com era job title.
I was able to use the harness to assist Nemo up and down stairs, or any difficult territory, while he healed. I also found it easier to move Nemo around when he didn't want to move. My Great Pyr now has a handle!
It is machine washable, and super durable.

Dogs are great. They just are. They're a source of happiness, joy and unconditional love. I know mine is (pic above). However, they have a mind of their own which sometimes can be frustrating and other times a true danger. The good news is that with a little patience and knowledge you can hack your dog's brain.

Ain't nothing keeping these two from playing together, not even a fence.
Two-year-old Conway loves throwing a ball over the fence of his yard, only to have his neighbor's dog, Dozer, stick his head over the fence to drop it back.
Conway's dad, Chad Nelson, posted the video to Facebook, where it has gone viral, receiving over 3.8 million views.
Now at 12.6 million...!
