Helpful solutions to help your dog’s mobility.

If you are using a dog stroller or bicycle pet trailer to aid your dog’s mobility, then have you ever thought of obtaining mobility items to help them get about within the home? There are now some very handy pet mobility products to use in your home, garden and car. These are designed by pet specialists and are to help your dog get up, down, in and out of places without taking away their independence. Not only will your pet be able to get about freely, but they will need less help from you. Carrying and lifting your dog constantly can become an health issue and problematic for you too, especially if you have a large or heavy dog.

Simple mobility can be tough for an old, injured or small breed of dog

Many dogs who suffer from mobility issues can become pretty frustrated when it comes to simple tasks like climbing stairs, getting into the car or even jumping up on the sofa to be with thier owner. When leg and hip problems become too painful for your dog to leap and jump, they then have to resort to either being constantly picked up or being left to live on the floor level, seperated from their owners. Life can become pretty miserable and lonely for a pooch with mobility problems.
Even small breeds of dog that are fit and healthy, can have problems getting about the home. Jumping up and down from furniture can have a massive impact on their legs and joints, so even providing them with mobility steps and ramps can give them a new lease of life and complete accessibility to many parts of your home and garden.

Mobility steps and ramps for dogs

Dog Mobility Ramps for the home, garden and car
Mobility steps and ramps are an ideal way for your pet to reach ‘hard to get’ places. If your dog likes to sleep on your bed, then a set of mobility steps adjacent to your bed will allow them to come and go freely throughout the night. These night steps are perfect for them, no longer will they become distressed or nervous about jumping up or down. The added bonus of these mobility pet steps is that they will prevent your dog from waking you up regularly during the night especially when they need to get up or down.
Dog mobility ramps are perfect for allowing your dog to get and out of your car easily and efficiently. It’s also safer for you too, no longer do you have to carry and lift your dog, an exhausting task if you have a large or overweight pet. The mobility ramp also gives your dog their independance. No dog likes to be carried and lifted on a regular basis. Ramps are cleverly designed to be stored easily in your home or car. Some car ramp models are telescopic, some simply fold two or three ways and some are even free standing which makes them perfect for the home and garden too.

Dog lifting harnesses

There are also a selection of dog lifting harnesses available to aid your dog’s mobility. Dog lifting harnesses are ideal for your dog if they have leg or hip problems or even recovering from a surgical operation. With a lifting harness you can easily lift your dog safely and quickly without causing them any harm or pain.
The harness structure takes the whole of the dogs weight and keeps them in a horizontal position, which is so much better then scooping them up in your arms and putting unwanted pressure on problematic parts of your dogs body. A lifting harness is also much smaller than a dog ramp and may be a better alternative if you don’t have room for a foldable dog ramp in your car boot. They are durable, extremely easy to fit on to your dog and easy to clean and maintain. Dog lifting harnesses can either be of a loose fitting design (for temporary quick lifts) or a more fitted structured harness which can be worn full time.

There are also lifting harnesses that are designed for either the front or rear part of your dogs body. If your dog suffers from either front or back leg problems then a harness can be fitted to your dog’s front chest or rear hind quarters. The idea of the front or rear harness is that you are able to lift or slightly elevate your dog, using the harness leash attachment.
By doing this you are able to take some of your dog’s weight, still allowing them to still use their healthy legs for walking and exercising. By using a rear or front harness your dog is still able to walk and exercise which is extremely important if they are in rehabilitation after an illness or recovering from a surgical operation.
multifunctional dog lifting harnesses are designed for medium and large sized dogs
There are also multifunctional dog lifting harnesses which give you complete control over your dogs front or rear legs. These sort of harnesses can be used fully or in part, depending where your dogs problematic areas are.

Dog lifting harnesses for the adventurous type of hound
