    Default Harness/Sling to help older dog walk up stairs

    Dryf is turning 15 this month (we don't have an exact date). He is having trouble with stairs.

    I have heard a few people here (I think) mention a harness or sling that goes under the belly to help you take some of the weight off their legs to help with stairs (or in case of a very weak moment during a walk) - what/where did you find this?

    When I used a sling for Darby's TPLO, I slit the seams on an old tote bag and used that.
