It's well made but a pain to put on for everyday use
Good quality. Seems like it would work well for climbing. I bought it for everyday use for a dog with weak rear legs to help her up stairs etc if needed. The straps don't have buckles to easily click on and go- every time you put it on you adjust the straps, and my dog won't sit still long enough. I exchanged it for their webmaster harness, and we love it. Much easier to put on with the buckles and the handle allows us to hoist her up with ease.
Doubleback™ Harness Review
Very nice. Dog seems comfortable if a bit freaked out.
Excellent addition to our adventures
This harness works really well. I was pleased that after following the sizing instructions it lead us to the correct size! We bought this to hoist our 50lb pup into our roof top tent safely and it does just that. I’m sure if we knew how to climb with our pup this harness would be our go to. It’s well built and our pup seems to forget she’s wearing it which perhaps means it’s very comfortable to wear. I would certainly recommend this all those who dream of takin their pups climbing. This is certainly the piece of equipment you’re looking for. Also this will greatly serve us as our pup begins to age and we will need more help lifting her comfortably in and out of different places.
In case of fire
Fortunately, I have not had to use the 2 harnesses yet. I live on the side of a mountain and wanted a way to get my dogs out should there be a fire so I can repel them down the side of the house should there be a need. One dog is 12.5 yrs old and now I leave the harness on him all the time so I can assist him getting up (70lb dog) (just the front harness, not the rear).
Chest piece is too long
The chest piece is too long on this harness. Our SAR team has a couple of these harness, they've been used on several breeds of dogs and the reoccurring theme is that the chest piece extends back into the dog's belly, therefore it digs into the guts when the dog is lifted (despite using an additional attachment on the rear loop to level out the dog). Ruffwear does not offer any option on a smaller pad, I have asked. But, in comparing all of the rapelling/hoisting harnesses out there - this harness is the best.
