How are AST Support Suits™ and Get-a-Grip Harnesses™ different from other harnesses?


There is no need to thread your dog’s head or legs through loops of strap! Our Pet Support Suits™ and Get-a-Grip Harnesses™ to wrap around a dog’s body and clip on around the head and forelegs. This eliminates the difficulties encountered when using many other harnesses.


The wrap-around design and adjustable Bridge Strap allow AST Pet Support Suits™ and Get-a-Grip Harnesses™ to fit properly and stay centered on any dog in their size range, to insure that the lift you provide is centered under your dog.


The AST X-Belly straps cross under the body, connecting the front and rear support straps, and creating a sling effect that lifts the whole dog at once.


Padded belly, Broad straps and an Abdominal Cut-Out keep Pet Support Suits™ and Get-a-Grip Harnesses™ from uncomfortably binding or constricting a dog’s abdominal area.


Are Pet Support Suits™ and Get-a-Grip Harnesses™ easy to put on and take off?


Yes, even if your dog can’t stand up on its own; just wrap, snap and Go! Once you’ve made the initial strap adjustments to get the desired fit, it really is that easy. Taking one off is even easier– simply release the five clips (and peel the Velcro® in the case of the Support Suit) and it’s off in seconds flat!


How long can my dog wear the Support Suit™ or Get-a-Grip Harness™?


Suits and Grips can remain on your dog for extended periods during the day, but we recommend removing them overnight.


Are AST Pet Support Suits™ and Get-a-Grip Harnesses™ washable?


Yes. Machine wash, warm, gentle cycle. Assemble the Suit/Grip before washing. Lay flat or hang - do not tumble dry.


What about male dogs?


Both Support Suits™ and Get-a-Grip Harnesses™ have an abdominal cut-out to reduce pressure on the soft underbelly and accommodate male dogs.


Will the harness still fit well if my dog loses or gains weight?


Yes. Pet Support Suits™ and Get-a-Grip Harnesses™ are designed to fit a range of body sizes, so the fit should only be affected if its weight change is very extreme.
