I have a 155lb Old English Mastiff who is 10.5 years old. I found a WONDERFUL article that suggested putting yoga mats around the house to assist elderly dogs with getting up on hardwood floors. I have had the therapaws heavy duty boots for years, & ruffwear harness (she HATES this; can't use it). She was getting irritated with the boots. I put 8 yoga mats all over the house. They have been a GODSEND. Initially, she was a bit freaked bc she would get a "running start". Now, she moves over to the yoga mats as they seem to offer benefits of traction, comfort, etc. When she stands on the yoga mats, her hind quarters don't sink- she appears level. I STRONGLY recommend yoga mats for the support of elderly dogs.

The no pull harness is a training tool for training that helps owners to teach their dogs not to pull on the leash (Which can be injurious to the human and dog and aversive to the human). It is not meant to be worn off leash or while your dog engages in an agility run, frisbee challenge or tricks class. I also use no pull harnesses to help calm leash aggressive dogs and they work wonders. If we weigh out the risks of impeded movement against all the possibly life and injury saving benefits of these harnesses, (vs using a collar and leash)it doesn't make any sense not to use them. Better walking equals more time spent with the dog in a pleasurable activity and leads to an overall better behaved dog. JMHO Dogs Mobility Harness, Dog Harness, Support Harness for Senior Dogs.

For dogs who pull on leash, I have long preferred harnesses over choke chains, prong collars, shock collars, and even flat collars and head halters. When the first dedicated front-clip no-pull harness for dogs (the SENSE-ation Harness) arrived on the market over a decade ago, I was an instant fan of a leash-attachment ring on the harness strap that goes across the front of the dog’s chest. With a properly fitted harness and gentle pressure on the leash (clipped to a ring on the dog’s chest), even a physically challenged handler could turn a pulling dog’s front end back toward her – and reinforce the dog for slacking the leash in this way – helping the dog learn not to pull.Subscribe to our channel:

The Power of TogetherMany other force-free trainers also embraced the new design as a huge improvement over head halters, which were clearly aversive to many dogs. In contrast, most dogs seem to accept the front-clip harness instantly, with only a very small population who seem to find the harness aversive. In my experience, most dogs who object to the harness are sensitive to touch and/or handling, and it’s the process of putting the harness on, rather than wearing the harness, that they object to.Back in May I was still on a quest to find the most important piece of equipment for a senior dog -- or at least a senior dog who lives with stairs. That's a harness. As dogs get older, especially certain breeds and mixed breeds like shepherd or lab, they often lose muscle and nerves in their back end. (And these dogs, my vet tells me, don't suffer a lot of pain because they've lost some feeling.) Others have it worse with arthritis or hip dysplasia.
