Our beloved Misty broke open her tail with her strong wagging. This caused her to get blood all over the walls. Our veterinarian told us that there was nothing we could use on her tail that will stay on. We tried a cone, medications, bandages, tape, a noodle, and even a muzzle. We spent hundreds of dollars at the vets and were facing an amputation surgery with it's own set of risks.
The Vet was astonished when we discovered a way to keep her tail covered. There was no more licking or biting at her tail - and she couldn't remove it. She healed completely from Happy Tail Syndrome in a couple of weeks.

I was so frustrated on my dog kept wagging his bandage off. I have to exchange that 4 times a day! The harness saved my ass! Can’t be more satisfied!
I can’t say that my yellow lab Daisy likes the Happy TailSaver, but I love it! The Happy TailSaver is allowing her tail to heal and helping her to avoid having her tail amputated. I highly recommend the Happy TailSaver and I wish I had found it sooner!
We are three weeks in using this product on a pup with chronic happy tail. Within the first week, there was already significant healing. We will leave this in place for at least another two or three weeks to allow complete healing. Previously, the tail was wrapped and would never heal. This product allows air to circulate around the wound and also allows you to apply antibiotic spray frequently, both of which facilitate healing. We've also washed and dried the Tail Saver with no issue.
Might be a little soon to tell if it’s going to save his tail, but at the very least, my pup doesn’t pull it off and it does keep him from licking/biting the wound and tearing it back open. We’ve had to do a combination of pain reliever, antibiotic and keeping it bandaged. This is a nice supplement to all of that and now that the wound is finally healing, he wears it while the hair is growing back so that he doesn’t re-injure it. Another benefit is it seems to calm him down a bit so he’s not so wild in general which is how the tail got hurt in the first place. So far, so good!
By the time we received it ( and I paid extra for shipping)his tail was healing and bandages were staying on. He is not using a cone and is doing well. We look at the purchase as an insurance policy so we will never be in this position again
Our dog suffers from separation anxiety and has broken her tail open many times. We would come back and find blood everywhere and all over her. We were at a loss as to how to help her. Then we found K9 Tailsaver… it’s a saver!! She has no issues wearing it, she can be left alone now and we don’t come back to a more anxious dog with blood all over her. Thank you so much for this product.
It definitely helps, but poor pup whines because he has to where it. It calms him down though.
This is the only thing that has stayed on and is actually protecting and saving our dog’s tail and our house from looking like a constant murder scene. So thankful to have found this product! Our dog has a degenerative muscular disease so he is on a high dose of steroids for the rest of his life. Once he hit his tail from “happy tail” and it produced a sore, he will not heal due to the steroids. We tried bandaids, sports tape, and sprays to keep him from biting those off, but nothing worked. We wish we had just started with this product.
I was referred to this product by my vet when my dog was already at the point of getting his tail amputated. I ordered the morning of the surgery, and by the time he was ready to try on the harness, his tail ended up being too short. Whenever I called for customer service I was greeted by a live person to talk me through trying things on, and was ensured a return would be honored if the product didn’t work out. For my Shady, his tail was too short after the amputation for the product to work, but would have been perfect if I learned of it before we got to the last resort of amputation! Even if you are unsure this is the product for you and your dog, it is worth a try with great support and service whether you keep the product or not. Workmanship and quality are excellent as well. If you are not at the amputation stage I highly recommend trying this product because you may be able to avoid getting to that point. Return was easy and I have received my refund. Best of luck to anyone dealing with Happy Tail, I know how hard it is!
We have a 44# Plott Hound. She had to get about 4” of her tail amputated because of her happy tail issues. 😢 The Tailsaver did a good job of keeping her bandages covered, as well as stifling some of her wagging while her tail healed. She was able to throw is a couple times while she was kenneled, but after a couple adjustments it’s fit great. Highly recommended.
This is the 3rd day we my dog is using it and I already see a huge improvement in her tail; we had tried bandages over the past 2 weeks but they would always come off and not fully protected as she was able to fully wag her tail and ended up hitting walls or furniture. This product is very well designed as it not only provides a lot of cushion to protect her tail but also by using the belt that goes around her legs it also provides a much needed small limitation on how hard she can wag her tail… It took us some time figure out how to use it but it was b/c we were rushing through the video and did not watched carefully all the instructions; now I can put it on and take it of in less than a minute.
I would give this product 10 stars if I could ;-)
Be sure to watch the online instructional video before attempting to assemble this harness. It will save you a lot of time. My lab doesn’t like wearing it, but he also doesn’t like having his tail wrapped with pipe insulation and vet wrap. I don’t like having blood splatter on my walls, upholstery, and clothes, so he will wear it. I was hesitant about the price but it is well worth the money. I’m glad I purchased it.
As others mention, most important step is proper harness strap adjustment! Buster (8 year old, Boxer/Dane mix) wasn't too thrilled but would only whine to the kids (as they would feel bad and take off the tail cover). Since he is healed, we only have him wear it a few hours a day, at times he is most active & excited.
Our vet wasn't familiar with the TailSaver but was so impressed they took pictures to share with others!
We were on the path to have to amputate my dogs tail. After multiple trips to the vet to have it rewrapped, the tech mentioned googling “tail saver”. I’m so glad I did! While it’s tricky getting it fitted to my dog, once we got everything nice and tight, it doesn’t come off in play and she happily chases frisbees. Without the tail saver, we needed her in the “cone of shame” AND the blow-up neck-pillow. She’s pretty high strung. Now, we only use those when she’s in her kennel and not watched. After about 3 weeks, her tail is almost completely healed. I wish I had found this sooner. Would have saved me all the trips (and money) to have her tail wrapped. We made the trip every 2-4 days - sometimes 2 times in the same day. The tail saver kept her from chewing on her tail.
Seriously don’t hesitate buying this if your dog has Happy Tail syndrome. It is worth every penny!!
I have a new 3 yr old boxer mix and was unsure if he would tolerate this. Fortunately he has worn it a couple days and not chewed it off, but he clearly finds it annoying. Apparently his prior training prevents him from chewing on his harness so I am lucky. It was a bit difficult to fit proper with all the harness straps, but the YouTube video did help. After you get it on properly adjusted it is much easier to get on and off. I use it only when the dog is in the house. I take the entire body suit off, leaving the top two tail harness buckles in place and only releasing the strap that goes underneath or across his chest through the chest loop and to the top rear. Then I only need to buckle the suit back on and the bottom chest to back strap. He was a gentleman and stood still while I adjusted the straps. If your dog won't stand still, you might have another person holding him on a leash while you figure it out. I didn't grab his tail to put it in the sleeve, but held it open at the top and slipped the tail in like an arm in a sleeve. That was easier because he doesn't like his tail being touched. It's a plus that in 2 days he hasn't split his tail again on a wall or cabinet. It was a blood bath every day the prior 3 days. It took me 6 hours to clean up the 3 separate blood bath incidents, a half hour to figure out and fit the harnesses the first time and less than 3 minutes to put the harness on and off now. I don't use the extra belt to help keep the tail from coming out of the tail harness. His tail dropped out a couple of times and I slipped it back in and adjusted straps to get a better fit. He is sleeping and walking fine with it on.
At first I used wraps that kept flying off, but now the tail saver has given us the ease we needed to help our pups tail heal. He can move freely and we dont have to put the cone on him. Huge improvement from wraps and worries about him chewing. When the tail saver is on he doesn't mind now whatsoever. It has relieved a mother's worries for sure!
My 4.5 month old Lab puppy got her tail slammed in a door leaving a deep gash about 2” from the tip. I took her to the vet assuming she would get a few stitches and was astonished and horrified when the vet recommended a complete amputation of her entire tail. Her reasoning was that my puppy would chew at the tail and it wouldn’t heal and have to be amputated anyway.
No way was l going to do something so drastic without trying to save the tail first. Labs in particular need and use their tails as a rudder when swimming so l was determined to save her tail.
I was so happy to get a link from a fellow Lab owner for the K9 Tail Saver and read all the incredibly positive reviews. I called and Julie was so helpful and informative. I immediately ordered a Tail Saver to be sent Next Day Air.
Upon receipt of the Tail Saver l put it on my puppy and found that the buckles made it easier to adjust as she was transitioning from size Small to Medium. The straps allowed me to adjust things easily and after an initial period where she had to get used to it, my puppy did not even notice it being on and was walking, relieving herself and playing as if nothing was wrong.
Before she had the “cone of shame” on and was whining constantly, was listless and looking to bite at her tail so the difference was remarkable!
Now my puppy has a protected tail so hopefully it will heal and prove that vet wrong!
More vets need to be aware of this alternative to amputation! I cannot recommend this enough! I’m now so hopeful and optimistic that my baby will heal and be whole again with the beautiful “otter tail” that Labs are known for.
So far it has been a godsend. After a while it gets easier to put on especially as my Lab now accepts it without thinking it’s some kind of punishment. The vet is happy and is now leaving it up to me whether I take her back or not. “no more bills”. She only has to wear it in the house as that is where she does the damage to her tail and my decorating. Hopefully this will be an end to this stressful saga.
Whoever came up with this very simple solution is a genius.
Nessie has taken to wearing her tail saver so well!! She can still run around like normal and she hasn’t damaged her tail since wearing it!! I was super impressed with how quickly the Tail Saver arrived to me in Australia, I think it was 5 days in total!! So fast and absolutely brilliant!! Thanks so much Tail saver, you really have saved Nessie from having more tail damage leading to potentially having her tail amputated! Thank you so much!!
We have a Great Dane pup (now year & half) that one year ago, I was about “at my wit’s end”....told my husband it’s the dog or me 😭 cause I was spending an hour every afternoon when got home, cleaning up blood. My house looked like Dexter’s laboratory. If the police came, they’d accuse us of murder. This tail saver was a LIFE SAVER! (My husband’s lol) Our baby’s tail finally was able to heal & we saved her & her tail. My vet had said only option was amputation. She’s a beautiful girl, we just didn’t want that. They were so absolutely wonderful, helping me: sending me modifications & different things to try: she was a Houdini! But we’ve all survived!
I was so stressed out trying to keep my retriever’s wild tail clean and protected. The doctor suggested pool noodle or pipe insulation and tape. Well, that would last until a vigorous tail whip and then it soared across the room. I was going crazy! I heard that without proper protection my pup could lose his tail for good. When I googled the “Happy Tail Syndrome”, the K9 TailSaver was the only solution I could find. I was a little hesitant, but it arrived in 3 days! It seemed overwhelming with all the straps, but once it’s on...it’s ON! My dog wasn’t really bothered by the apparatus and he could still go to the bathroom. This was a total game changer. It allowed me to sleep in peace.
If your dog has ever had happy tail you know how hard it is to protect their tail from re-injury every time they wag it. This not only keeps them from licking and chewing it but also protects it was additional wagging trauma.
We were at a loss as to how to keep our puppy from getting at her tail while it healed. We tried so many things! I searched online and found the Happy Tail Saver! Had to watch the video several times to get it in her correctly but it’s been a true saver! Our vet was so impressed he wrote down the name so he could recommend it to others! Thank you! This product truly did save Piper from having her tail removed.
We love our tailsaver harness!! It saved our pups tail from being amputated! Who knew a tiny cut on the tip of her tail would have been such a nightmare. We were literally getting amputation quotes from the vet the same day we ordered the harness- we were out of options- and thank goodness found the TailSaver online! It has kept her away from her tail long enough for the lesion to heal well enough that it doesn’t have to be wrapped! She’s one happy pup without all the tape and gauze causing her to itch. The customer service that this company offers is second to none, and beyond helpful! They sent ointment for our pup and even shipped over the weekend because she knew the severity of our case! Will 100% recommend to anyone! We’ve even been talking our vet to look into getting them for situations like these! WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR THE TAILSAVER!!
Working at a vet office and in animal rescue-this product is a dream come true! This product has prevented having to have a dog get her tail amputated. Highly recommend!!,
