Instructions on how to use the Walkin’ Lift-n-Step Harness


Can the front harness of the Lift-N-Step be worn by itself?
The rear lifting component can be removed to support only the front legs. The front harness can also be used on its own as a standard walking harness.

Can a dog pee while wearing the harness?
Yes, this harness is specifically designed to allow pets to go to the bathroom. The rear harness piece features a cutout shape that allows both male and female pets to urinate cleanly while using the harness.

Can I fully lift a dog off the ground with the Lift-N-Step?
No, you should never entirely suspend a dog using this harness. If a dog requires more support than this harness provides, we recommend using the Walkin’ Combo Harness.

Can the lifting harness be safely used after surgery?
The Lift-n-Step is designed to aid pet’s healing from injury or surgery, allowing pet parents to gently lift their dog and support them through rehabilitation and recovery.
The Lift-N-Step has been used for post-op recovery for TPLO, ACL/CCL/MCL, and other orthopedic surgeries.

Is the handle strap adjustable?
Yes, the Lift-n-Step lifting strap adjusts to allow the caregiver to find the perfect height for their comfort. This easy-to-use mobility aid will enable you to support your patients without lifting their entire weight or straining your back.
