keeps her comfy

It definitely seemed to keep her comfortable while using her Palisades pack on hikes.

A good lift

Easy to put on with the web master harness. It was bought for a skinny sheltie to pad his chest a little when being picked up. Works well, altho Tator doesn't like being picked up! He does strut his stuff when on the ground. Now he feels as special as his muttly sister (she got hers first)!

Picking up the Biskit

The Brush Guard is an essential piece of gear for me. As an avalanche dog handler, I need to pick up and carry my dog often. She is more comfortable because her weight is more evenly distributed when I pick her up. The BrushGuard also protects her belly from snow buildup. We love it!

Love it!

I bought this paired with the harness for my dog who recently became a tripawd (****** cancer). It genuinely helps cushion his belly and helps distribute his weight evenly when I use the handle on the harness to help support him as he moves around. Highly recommend!
