I saw someone mentioned this already but I have added D rings to mine so that I can use a pull strap and it is super useful. I would love to see something similar on this design. I use the back D rings to hang a water bowl and other things.

Grace, my apologies I took a hiatus from the forum due to some medical issues. During my absence there has been a lot of activity, brainstorming, testing, and Beta Designs. While the progress has not been documented on the site. I can guarantee you there has been lots of progress and I think when you see the next iteration of the design you will be pleasantly surprised. I last heard from Andy about a month ago and the harness had finally made it in the current queue for production. Andy did let me know then that unfortunately we might experience some delays due to the pandemic. Hopefully we will have an update around April. For 1TG longest running product design!

Thank you very much for your input. I'd appreciate it if you would continue to check in and also keep a look out once we finally get to testing as we will need a few service dog teams to test our final baby!!!

Thanks again, BigT

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe I’ve only just seen this forum while thinking of making my own for a very similar product idea. My service dog does a good amount of mobility and we use our tactical cape (Apollo 09) as much as possible but some days I wish we just had the one piece of equipment together. This would be a life changer for us in terms of the weather where we are and my dog’s comfort. I can’t wait to see what this becomes and when gear testing comes out!!!!

Hey, I’m sorry I have absolutely no idea what this website is or if I can even post on here but I was wondering if this is a product that is going to be for sale? I am training my own assistance dog (Uk version of a service dog) and I have been looking for a mobility harness but non of them seem to be Y shaped and sturdy enough. I want a Y shapes one because it is more comfortable for the dog as it doesn’t limit their range of movement in the front legs.

Hey Amber, welcome to 1TG the tactical gear forum. This item is currently labeled as being tested and is not an official product. We do not have mobility assistance service dog harnesses, but feel free to take a look at www.onetigris.com and see if anything might be useful!

I’d love to help test this out with my SD. He’s a Rottweiler weighing 125 pounds.

not sure where all the designs stand, was wondering about the buckle and strap location at the rear of the harness? Like most all rotts, dobes and sheps, my Atlas has a large chest that gets skinnier towards his rear. Maybe the buckles could swivel a bit and not effect stability.

I know it would add some cost, but maybe carbon fiber for an idea for interior handle stiffeners. Super lightweight and extremely strong.

One more thing for now. All the “true” mobility harnesses I’ve seen for shorter people or shorter dogs always seem to have a vertically rigid with some lateral rigidity handle system that focuses the majority of weight between the front shoulders.

I can show you an example of one that’s like I’m describing but not sure about posting someone else’s product and if there are any consequences for that. Let me know.

so sorry if all this is after the fact, just found y’all today and immediately signed up.

Welcome, Private! You most certainly can submit your thoughts and suggestions here; it is after all a design still being tested and perfected.
