Our work has been reviewed by many independent sources, here are a few links:
We love our harness, it works great . And has made my life much better . Thank you for such a quality product. The time you spend getting this right the first time, makes a difference. . . You have no idea the independence and confidence this harness and my dog have given me. When I fall, I can now get up , instead of crawling to the nearest chair, or wall, ect. But because [the harness], I have less falls. . . So glad we found your site, 5 stars all the way! You are not just making harnesses, you change lives.
The best decision I ever made was to buy the mobility support harness. It’s really comfortable for my dog as as for me and very stable. Since I bought the ergonomic support handle, I had not had any falls and my balance keeps improving from using it. Before I bought the harness I almost decided to give up on having my dog be my mobility support because all the other products I’d bought were not comfortable for him and not stable for me. But after I bought the harness my whole life is changed. This is coming from somebody that’s never been able to walk unassisted. I’m very grateful for Katrina and your company and I hope she keeps doing the best work possible.
Their service really cares about your dog. I have a 15 mo old GSD that I needed a harness for but she is still young and I was worried about her growing and what size would be best for her. Now they could have just sold me the harness right then and there BUT they told me that I should wait until she is about 2 when her growth plates close. They not only have great harnesses but they really care about the dogs they make them for. I will be ordering in May when she is 2. It was NOT about the money to them it was about my dogs health and me. How can you not trust someone like that!!!
I received Logan’s MSH last week. This is the best harness. The quality is unsurpassed. The leather soft and supple. The fit right on. The buckles are easy to use. I am so pleased that today I order additional products, a leash, a leash extender for additional length when needed, a collar and head halter. Thank you, BLD.
I ordered my MSH about 18 months ago and it has been a pure godsend for me! Several times when I have gotten overbalanced I was able to hold the handle and steady myself instead of falling. Rachel my beautiful standard poodle is so comfortable in the harness she will fall asleep under the table when we go to restaurants, or for coffee. Rachel totally approves of the fit and feel of this wonderful harness as do I. And the over the shoulder leashes are awesome as well, I have sent many many people to BLD with the highest praise for the products. I will never buy a leash anywhere else!!! Awesome products Katrina and crew.
In October if this year my husband ordered a mobility harness from your company. The local news channel requested a story about his service dog. The following link will take to it. We appreciate the harness and how sturdy the construction. The harness has provided support he could not find in a cane. http://www.ketv.com/news/man-trains-dogs-to-help-disabled-veterans-return-to-their-feet/29991522
Katrina, My harness saved me today. I was walking up a pedestrian bridge with metal stairs and I lost my balance. I quickly grabbed onto the handle and Hero caught my fall. Thanks for your wonderful product.
Just wanted to let you know how pleased Blaze and I are with the stability harness we got from you. It’s really a God send! I have been looking for a quality harness for a while and have been very disappointed with what’s out there! Thank you for providing quality workmanship and materials and for such quick turn around time.
Being an injured firefighter from NY I have a hard time walking and keeping my balance throughout the day. As I haven’t given up my busy days just yet, the stability harness really helps. Blaze and I go everywhere with it! When the harness arrived, Blaze sniffed it and couldn’t wait to get to it. When I put it on him, he loved it. When we went for our walk, I could feel the difference immediately. He seems very comfortable in it and we communicate better with it. The harness isn’t at all bulky, and that really helps during the hot days here in Florida. All in all, we are both very pleased! Thank you again, for all you do! Blaze and I really appreciate it.
Seriously – I could barely walk when I first got Chobe. The harness gave me so much confidence. . . The craftsmanship is impeccable and not only designed to aid the handler but also clearly with meticulous concern for the dog’s comfort, musculature and stature. If I didn’t know better, I would have thought they were specifically made for Dobermans. I guess mine actually was now that I think about it. I can’t think of ANYthing I’ve bought in recent years of such quality. Knowing what I know now, I would have paid a lot more than I did…Many thanks :D
Greyhounds are very difficult to fit gear-wise, so the fact that her harness fits so well is a testament to how awesome your BLD harnesses are! I also continue to marvel at the craftsmanship. I’m no leather expert, but it doesn’t take an expert to know this is great work. . . Nothing makes me happier than seeing my dog happy about putting on her work gear. I was a little concerned about whether she would be able to totally relax in her BLD harness at home during the daytime, but I’m sure you can tell from the recent pictures she’s having no problem at all chilling out in her comfortable new gear. Thank you!
Thanks so much for EVERYTHING! It’s been amazing to have my freedom back. I don’t know how I can ever really express just how the simple situation like being able to go to the bank when I want to again- rather than waiting for someone else to be able to take me can mean so much; and how great it is to have my dog with no sore shoulders and excited to do his job again.
Hello Katrina! I love the harness. It’s utterly fantastic and meets my needs very nicely. The ultimate proof was today in the store. I was shopping and not paying much attention, and missed my dog’s alert. I started to go down and made a wild grab for the fixed handle. I caught it, Joss braced hard, and it saved me a date with the floor! There’s no way his last harness could have done it. I’m raving about it to anyone who will listen.
It’s here…..the harness arrived today……thank you so very much for all your handwork and effort. It fits well…and looks great. Naamarrang [puppy] took to it like a duck to water!! Kedron [husband] was thrilled with the support!! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. It is going to make walking so much easier for Kedron, and thus add to the quality of his life. I will keep in touch……..but again thank you.
My harness has arrived and my first impression is WOW! It’s gorgeous and fits perfectly! My super-fussy dog accepted it right away too…that’s a first! Wow, what a difference the right equipment makes…THANK YOU!!!
Good Afternoon Katrina, Just got back from the first walk. This harness is amazing, the stability it provides is outstanding. The harness dose not twist or shift. Thank You so much for such a great product! :-)
Got Shai’s new harness today! What a beauty! As a physical therapist who deals with handicapped durable medical equipment and orthotics on a daily basis–your craftsmanship on this harness is high quality and should be approved for Medicare DME. I feel sure it is not covered, but there should be a way to get approval so all disabled people who need them can have access to these. . .I am so impressed with your work.
I LOVE my new Basic Assistant harness from Bold Lead Designs!! My sweet St. Kona seems quite comfortable in it and works great!! Thank you Katrina, our new gear makes getting around so much easier!!! Looking forward to seeing you at the dog show in the next few days!
Dear Katrina, I just received Raliegh’s support harness. Just a few minor adjustments and it fits like a glove. Raliegh is very comfortable in it. The extra soft padding makes for a snug fit. I have only walked him around the house so far but he seems to handle the halter beautifully. Thank you for doing such an awesome job! Sincerely
HI KATRINA, I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR THE EXPERTISE AND CARE GIVEN IN THE CREATING OF SHEP’S HARNESS. AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PICTURES HE IS COMFORTABLE AND AT EASE WHILE WEARING HIS HARNESS. I ACTUALLY THINK SHEP WEARS IT WITH PRIDE! AS HE WAGS HIS TAIL IN ANTICIPATION WHEN I PUT IT ON HIM. ALL PERSONS INVOLVED FROM THE VET TO THERAPIST ARE MOST IMPRESSED WITH THE SAFETY AND COMFORT OF THE HARNESS. AND FOR ME IT SERVES MY PURPOSE TO THE MAXIMUM. I TRULY THANK YOU ON BEHALF OF SHEP AND I. SINCERELY,
