I have a 75 pound Briard in full long coat who has been bathed at the professional grooming shop for his seven years monthly or more often. I have never been able to bathe him at home because as a very young puppy, a breeder was visiting and stupidly kept spraying him in the face with a water bottle telling me l was rewarding bad behaviors and should have been correcting him using the water technique. Following that visit, he literally went into a full panic whenever l tried to bathe him at home and all efforts to manage his fear failed. The Covid-19 crisis has resulted in the closing of all professional grooming shops necessitating my finding a solution that would enable my bathing him at home.
I put in an immense amount of effort in researching a solution including considering having a contractor build a unique device. I consulted groomers that have worked with my dog. In learning what devices are available for sale, l carefully studied every site online including all the special sites available to both the show dog and the veterinarian worlds.
When l found your product, l very carefully took the measurements and recreated something similar and tried them on my Briard and on my smaller Polish Lowland Sheepdog and then attached them to the handle already present in my guest room bathtub. I took numerous photographs and sought the opinions of Harry’s groomers and of friends in the dog world - trainers, exhibitors, breeders - who know Harry well. Everyone agreed that your product appeared to offer the solution, knowing the likelihood that Harry would put up a strong fight.
To my surprise, Harry felt secure and confident wearing your restraints. I faced him away from the water source. I have the sprayer on a long hose. He did not have to see the spray which is what frightens him. The restraints were comfortable for him. His bath was a breeze. I was able to provide two shampoos, very thorough rinses, a conditioner, another rinse and a good towel dry with Harry relaxed in place.
I cannot thank you sufficiently. The lessening of stress, the cost saving as I will send them to the groomer less frequently, the delight in seeing Harry enjoy his bath at home....there are no words other than an enormous thank you! And Sarah, much smaller, did very well also as the restraints easily adjusted to fit her properly.
Without hesitation, l recommend your product to anyone who will be bathing a pet at home. It provides a safe, secure, comfortable way to keep a pet in the bathtub without having to adjust the device repeatedly. It keeps the pet in the proper position and not wiggling and twisting so the entire body can be accessed with ease, eliminating the danger of injuries from falling. It is well designed, of superbly high quality so it should be long lasting and it is very reasonably priced. The generous sizing permits long-term usage for dogs of almost all sizes. There is nothing l would change about it.
I bought this to help my puppy from falling off the grooming table while he learns to sit-stay and stand-stay and it has been perfect for this! I do have to be careful not to have it too tight because it crosses his penis and I just make sure I check it’s placement often but well worth it just to know that he can’t fall off if it is set properly.
I bought it mainly for the belly strap and it's way to long. In order for it to work on any dog you would have to have the bar way extended giving them way too much neck lead and too much room to move. I ended up removing the soft cover and putting it on a 4 ft leash and attaching a second clip to the handle end. That length is much better.
I've been grooming my dog at home since the pandemic started, and I've found it very difficult because my dog is a bit of a wiggler. This belly strap set really helps keep her in place (and from trying to jump off the grooming table!). Thank you for offering this product!
The noose straps are nice and work fairly well but they don’t stay snug. The haunch strap is waaaaaay too long to use properly for almost any sized dog. I have a large grooming table with a very tall overhead bar and I cannot get the haunch strap to work safely no matter how I configure it. Definitely do not recommend.
Product seems well made and sturdy but is not easy to use. I have not yet figured out the best way to get it properly hooked up. Also, the foam padding under the belly strap is pitifully thin and doesn't really serve the intended purpose.
