Handles are not included. Handles must be purchased separately. Do not use harness without a handle attached to support bars. Please be sure the harness saddle you order can accommodate the handle that you need–handle mounts cannot be changed! There are a few MSH rigid handles and leather Support Pull handles available in the Sample Sale category. New custom-made handles can be purchased from BLD at any time (we will verify that your harness is built to accommodate the handle ordered). All replacement parts can be seen here.

$200.00$445.00

To use a Support Pull handle, your harness needs “mouse ears.” If the harness does not have them, you will need a retrofit “mouse ears” kit that you can install with a screw driver. (NOT compatible with XL size harnesses)

New/Replacement girth straps, belly straps, or breastplates may be purchased from BLD at any time to re-fit the harness if needed (click on the strap to see the regular website page). Please remember all dogs must be within our recommended size for the saddle and of the minimum age recommended.


Important Notes:  

Dogs must be physically mature and of appropriate size, fitness and soundness for the work you would like them to perform.

Mobility, stability, and balance assistance work is physically demanding; a service dog must be in prime physical condition. The dog’s growth plates must be closed before beginning harness work (recommended minimum of 18-24 months of age). Please allow your dog time to grow and mature. Dogs MUST be in our recommended weight/measurement range for the harness to fit and function properly.

Consulting a qualified veterinarian (orthopedic specialist or canine sports medicine physical therapist) is highly recommended for all service/assistance dogs that perform physical tasks. Fit and performance of the equipment can only be assured if the dog meets the minimum recommended standards, the user and trainer have reasonable expectations, and when the equipment is used responsibly for the purpose it was designed. Likewise, harness users should consult a physician and physical therapist to determine what medical equipment is appropriate for their mobility needs.

Our equipment is designed to allow an appropriately selected and trained service dog to reasonably assist a person with a balance, mobility impairment, or other disability that requires specialty service dog gear. BLD cannot assess a dog’s suitability or appropriateness. BLD harnesses are not intended to serve as, or to replace, a durable medical device such as a cane, walker, or crutch. User assumes all responsibility for the safety, health, and care of the animal and human alike.
