This week I've been caring for a dear client, a 15 year old large-breed Lab mix who has been experiencing the effects of an idiopathic balance disorder. The lack of coordination, balance and her frustration were obvious.
I saw the need right away to find a way to assist her physically, to help my back and peace of mind - and her dignity.
I decided to pull out the Easy Walker harness out of my day bag, and it worked great.
She improved throughout the week, thankfully but I think that having the harness helped her through the difficult periods.
