You have such a great bond with Ziggy and are clearly deeply devoted ❤
And yes, tripawds do need to hop at a faster pace to help with their momentum and balance.
Ziggy is ahead of the curve this early on. Quite impressive!.
You already know this, but do try and “rein him in” as much as you can. Overdoing it can cause seroma , open the incision. strain newly used muscles, etc. And then, on rhe othe hand…shhhh….don’t tell Ziggy I said this……YAAAAY FOR ZIGGY FOR WALKING LIKE A CHAMP!
Others will chime jn the best harness for deep chested pups.
Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!
Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

YAY FOR ZIG! And you too Scott, congrats on making it through your first few days of recovery!
Are you sure you didn’t find that a Ruffwear harness (the Webmaster Plus or the Flagline) that would fit? They will even fit most Great Danes. If you want to confirm the measuring instructions feel free to give us a call or PM me. If these won’t work you may want to invest in a Custom Pet Support Suit.
Again, BRAVO for a job well done with recovery! Be sure to hop on over to our Treatment and Recovery Forum now that Zig’s graduated to the next phase 🙂
