A full body hasty harness for people I can do, but what about a dog? Have any of you ever had to rescue someones pet? Is there a hasty harness technique for our four legged friends? I searched but could not find anything. This may be a silly question, but since I got my first puppy 6 mo. ago, it got me to wondering.

In '99 I was on a high angle rescue of a dog - he jumped off the edge and landed on a ledge about 40 ft down. Not sure of the details because I never examined the patient packaging, but I think they took a duffel, cut four holes in the bottom, stuffed the puppy in with its legs sticking out the bottom, and zipped up the top with his head sticking out.

Crazy, I had been thinking about that this week. Anyways, solution I have gameplaned in my mind would be a bow tie webbing harness tied backwards with the chest attachment point on the K9's back (dorsal). I cannot find a good example on google and am away at and 80 hour US&R class or I could send you a picture from my computer. Remind me next week and I'll send you some pictures.~Drew

I am not sure how you got on with this, but I would get in touch with Rescue3 International. I know they are developing or have developed an animal rescue program. Alternatively, get in touch with the Wellington SPCA Animal Rescue Unit based here in New Zealand at http://www.aru.org.nz/ I am sure they would be happy to assist you.
