DOG LIFT HARNESS CARE
Soil can generally be removed with a spray cleaner or a mild detergent and water. Consider treating more stubborn oil or grease stains with a dry cleaning solvent followed by a spray cleaner or a mild detergent and water. Wash the Rock ‘N Rescue Dog Lift Harness on a low-temperature setting and using a mild detergent. Then either air dry or dry on a low setting. Be sure not to use any chlorine or bleach-based cleansers.
USING THE LIFT HARNESS WITH YOUR DOG
The easiest way to get the Rock ‘N Rescue Dog Lift Harness onto your dog is to place the dog lift harness on the ground or floor and have your dog step into the leg holes or at least stand in a ‘stay’ position as you gently help to position your dog’s feet into the right holes. Then pull up the dog lift harness around the body and secure the straps – one goes under and around your dog’s chest; another goes under your dog’s midsection, and the last one goes under your dog’s tail. All of the straps are fastened on top and can be adjusted for a more custom fit. Then attach the four hoisting ropes (they are included) and it is time to lift a dog!
TRAINING YOUR DOG FOR THE HARNESS
To train your dog to not fear the Rock ‘N Rescue Dog Lift Harness, it is best to train him or her the way you have probably trained your dog for everything else – with patience, positive reinforcement, and consistency. A dog that is very treat-motivated might do best by wearing the dog lift harness and receiving treats for doing so. A dog which is more play-motivated may do best by wearing the dog lift harness while playing. You could even incorporate clicker training – and praise will always work better than harsh words, so make sure to let your dog know that good things are always associated with the Rock ‘N Rescue Dog Lift Harness. Your dog is your partner and wants to help you! Make dog lift harness training enjoyable for both of you, and your dog will be the true, hardworking, and helpful partner you need when it counts the most.
