The K9 Rescue Harness™ was originally developed for the San Francisco Fire Department to use for rescuing stranded dogs from coastal cliffs. The department consulted with a veterinarian to help ensure that the harness properly supported the weight of a dog without harming its internal organs or tail while being suspended. Integrated features range from head to tail to provide the rescuer the means to quickly and safely secure a K9 for a pick-off rescue or extraction from confined space. The harness lift assembly distributes weight evenly to reduce pressure points, and five quick-connect buckles make securing and adjusting to the dog’s body fast and intuitive. Padded back and belly assembly provide safety and comfort while keeping straps separated to expedite the donning process. Compatible with most medium sized dogs.
