Dogs in Suits - We've put our AST Pet Support Suit on hundreds of dogs of all different shapes and sizes, with all kinds of reasons for wearing a suit. Some are dogs with long term medical issues, others are older dogs that need help up stairs or into cars. Some dogs are blind or have balance problems, and still others are active dogs, with owners that take them hiking and boating. There are service dogs, therapy dogs - all kinds of dogs can be found in an AST Pet Support Suit. If you need a heavy duty harness for dogs or if you have been searching for a giant breed dog harness, stop searching and order an AST Support Suit or Get-a-Grip Dog Lift Harness.The AST Pet Support Suit provides lift and aid for dogs with problems walking. The AST Pet Support Suit was designed as a disabled dog harness and is a great way to help a dog walk, help guide a blind dog or lift an old dog into a car. The Suit also makes a great post-surgery dog support sling because it provides strong, secure lift by wrapping around the dog and fitting snugly. In addition to being a great way to help a dog walk, help a dog into a car or provide lift and aid for dogs, the AST Pet Support Suit helps provide disabled dog owners a way to control their dog more completely than with a normal collar or chest harness. And because we build each one to your dog's measurements, you can count on a great fit, whether you have a two and a half pound chihuahua or a 240 lb mastiff!The uniquely scalable design of the AST Pet Support Suit allows us to adapt it to fit almost any animal without a dorsal fin.

“Zoey is now 130 lbs. I didn't know how we were going to get her down the stairs to take her to the vet every 8 weeks for her hoof trimming.  I asked my vet for any suggestions and she referred me to your website to search out a harness.  So I took Zoey's measurements, ordered her red suit from you, and here we are in our new home 4 months later, and the harness as you can see  works beautifully.  My husband and I each grab a handle and down the stairs Zoey goes.

Thank you so much for your help and this beautiful, perfectly fitting harness.  We are truly grateful!”

There is no need to thread your dog’s head or legs through loops of strap! Both the Pet Support Suit and Get-a-Grip Dog Lift Harness are easy to put on and take off, even if your dog can’t stand up on its own. The Support Suit wraps around the dog and Velcro holds it in place, the girth straps clip on, then the shoulder straps and Bridge strap. Attach the handles and you’re off– just Wrap, Snap and Go! Once your dog has worn the suit a few times and you’ve made the initial strap adjustments to get the desired fit, it really is that easy. And taking it off is even easier– simply release the five clips and peel the Velcro and the suit is off in seconds flat!
 This design eliminates the difficulties encountered when using many other types of dog support harnesses. If you have an arthritic dog or if your dog has had surgery, you might not want to bend him around too much to put a harness on; the AST Support Suit solves that problem.



“Here's a picture of our English Mastiff, Balzac, in the support suit after his recent knee surgery.  It works great allowing me to control his movement and direction.  That control is critical because he weighs 240 pounds and has no idea how strong he is.  I would recommend the support suit to anyone whose dog has had knee surgery - it's much better than the conventional sling approach.  Thanks again.”
