Get-a-Grip Dog Harnesses & Custom Pet Support Suits: Solid Support for Disabled Dogs
“Dear AST: I wanted to thank you for the wonderful harness / suit you recently sent to me for my dog Bismark out in Canton Massachusetts. I picked him up at the hospital yesterday after his surgery to remove a tumor on his spine. As I live in a condo with 3 flights of stairs, it has been extremely difficult to get him up and down over the last several months.
After trying 2 other back support leashes that are available at pet stores and finding them next to useless, yesterday's ascent up the stairs in the AST support suit was quite wonderful! It's still no cake walk, but what a vast improvement in terms of comfort for the dog along with the ability to grab hold of the handles and assist him up and along! What took us almost 15 minutes in the past took only 5 minutes with the AST suit!
When I picked him up at the hospital, I had the suit with me and discussed it with the neurologist. She was quite impressed with it and in fact took a photo copy of your "how to put it on" manual. Perhaps with the knowledge of this suit, she will be able to make recommendations to other clients down the road who run into similar situations with their dogs. I plan to share your product information with my local vet as well.
Anyway - so far so good. I am so happy to have found your company on the internet. I would be glad to serve as a reference to anyone inquiring as to the benefits and quality of your AST suit.
With my tremendous thanks and wishing you and your company great success,” J. David Cooke - Massachusetts
“I received Beau's suit yesterday morning. I can't thank you enough for shipping it so quickly. It has been a tremendous help. Beau will not give up even though his body is failing him. With this suit I can keep him from falling over. The suit has made a tremendous difference in the time Beau and I have together. You are welcome to quote me. Thanks again.” Dorothy Fitch - New York
“You're the BEST. Thank you SO MUCH for Chaos' harness. We BOTH appreciate your attention to detail and the SUPERIOR customer service we experienced from Pet Support Suit. Many, Many Thanks. Have a GREAT weekend.” Lisa - Arizona
“The harness arrived yesterday, and we promptly tested it out. You've done a good job with the design which provides superior support, and the shoulder strap helps in lifting her. Workmanship and design seem exceptional, and we like the yellow color for it's visibility. Again, thank you all for your prompt response to our order and a high quality item. Regards,” John, Joy and Sadie - Alabama
“I just rec'd the support suit... SO QUICK!!!! My sister ships her products priority mail too, and it's amazing how fast a package can get to the other side of the country. It's very well made. And I'd like to thank you for all the information and guidance that you've given us. Thanks so much.” Lisa - Connecticut
“Just picked it up at the post office ! Boys are at home trying to get it all adjusted :) thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou,” Dianne, Ed, & Loki - Washington
“Thank you for the AST harness--it definitely works well for helping lift Huck's hind end. Also, I can hoist him up stairs and into cars like a suitcase.(I have started calling him Samsonite.)” Best wishes, David - Massachusetts
“Received Molly's harness the day after you mailed it last week and used it this weekend getting her from the deck of our boat into the cabin and back. It worked fabulously! My husband figured out a pulley system for it and it is SO MUCH EASIER on her AND us! He is now figuring out how he'll rig the boom so we can use it to get her on and off the boat in places where we are unable to have her step to the back.
In any case, the "Molly Trolley" is great. I've had other large dogs in the past who could have used this system for medical reasons. I'll do my best for word of mouth advertising for you as I think it is a well thought out and well made functional piece of equipment. Thanks so much,” Roxane and Molly
“Hi, Wanted to let you know that channel 4 did a story on our Daisy Mae last night. If you go to their website you can see her video clip.....she is wearing the support suit. I have had 2 calls on where they can purchase one.......they should be contacting you. Thanks.” Allicia, Rescue Pup - Washington
“I love the suit! I think Shi loves it too!...the AST support suit is absolutely wonderful !!! Thank You So Much!” Amy & Shi
“Came last Monday and is a big help. Apollo still collapses but he is easier to handle with the casing around his body and also easier
to lift. the long strap helps when I have to actually lift him up while holding the straps, such as when we are going up the stairs.
Thank you for the fine product. I hope we get a lot of use from it.” Mary - New York
“Hello, my name is Jeffrey. I was adopted from Rockin "P" Rescue. They find abandoned and abused boxers from a variety of places. I needed an amputation due to a deformity of my rear leg that rendered it useless. Mom just got me this wonderful harness from Animal Suspension Technology. Mom will take me for a walk in it. I am a Certified Therapy Dog and want to continue to see the adults and especially the kids I have been visiting. Mom will use this to help give my leg a hand getting up from sitting down. Sloppy Boxer kisses from Jeffrey and warm regards from his proud mom,” Rose Ann Dean - Alabama
“Here's a picture of our English Mastiff, Balzac, in the support suit after his recent knee surgery. It works great allowing me to control his movement and direction. That control is critical because he weighs 240 pounds and has no idea how strong he is. I would recommend the support suit to anyone whose dog has had knee surgery - it's much better than the conventional sling approach. Thanks again. Bob & Debbie Estey, and Balzac - Maryland
