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 would 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. He said it was the first dog tail brace and was truly surprised that it worked so well. Since then we've adapted it to stay on any breed, and it protects ALL tail wounds, including but not limited to: tail biting, broken tail, allergies, cysts, neurological tail problems, infection, Cushings, exposed bone and hairless tail. Veterinary care is important, but you can save the cost of tail amputation. If your dog's tail is bleeding don't wait.

It didn’t protect my dogs tail and ended up having to be amputated
Only worked for 2 days before my dog destroyed it
While its a great concept I did not realize how complicated it was, especially my giant baby of a dog who can't stand Still. We have crime scenes everyday cause he loves people its great but annoying. He tries to hite this off constantly.
Didn’t work at all, submitted a return e-mail and I have yet to hear back. Unfortunate
My dog was relentlessly licking his tail wound causing infection and regular bloody messes requiring hours of cleanup around my house. The largest cone available couldn’t keep him off of it. We were on the cusp of having his tail amputated before I found this thing by a stroke of luck.
He doesn’t love wearing it and he can find ways to get the sleeve off but it’s few and far between. This thing ended so much stress for my dog, my household, my wallet and me. I can’t recommend it enough and every vet out there should have some kind of affiliate relationship with this company to help dogs with tail injuries.
Helped heal his tail quickly!
Is not working for my dog. Idk what I'm doing wrong because I know this should work:(
Easy to install.
I wanted to give a good review to this item and ultimately I do think it could work. But for us our dog got his cone off and once that happened he chewed the entire apparatus apart. I’m not requesting a refund because times are hard enough for small businesses and the product is well built - it’s just an awkward item with lots of straps and once the e collar was off and he could chew at all the straps he did. So my suggestion is to ensure that the straps can’t be chewed by either a very good e collar or maybe some sort of onsie ontop of the apparatus. It’s a difficult injury and sadly this item didn’t help for us - but it is well built and they shipped it quickly and in theory I can see it working if you can watch the dog but once they are alone in a crate - we lost all hope I. That situation. We think we are going to be able to save his tail because we have kept him from hitting his tail by moving things around and trying to avoid situations where he hits his tail. Good luck
This tail saving contraption, the company and main woman behind the scenes (Julie) is EVERYTHING! 10/10!
It does work when used correctly, but it was a journey. After two weeks it is starting to work.
I didn't put the harness on tightly enough, and I didn't cut the tail bag short enough, and I wrap it - not too tightly - in painters' tape because the tail kept slipping out, and I had to spray the wound antiseptic painkiller and I didn't use on the wag inhibitor strap or whatever they call it and I'm still not sure what to do with that last strap. But, finally, the dog is not spraying blood on my good clothes every time I walk past him.
It's a bit tricky, but it's the only thing that worked for a Dane mix puppy who had to have a wound on the tip of the tail debrided.
Also, it's the only the dog hasn't eaten.
Really, the ONLY thing.
Just, please, watch the video.
I love this thing. It’s been a HUGE life saver. I have a male 90lb pitbull catahoula and I had two vets tell me I should probably amputate my dogs tail because it just kept busting open and he wouldn’t let me bandage it at all. It was just a little complicated getting fitted at first but the video really helped and it was worth taking a few extra steps than getting an amputation. Thankfully my dog hasn’t tried to chew it up despite being a very energetic dog but the cushion has protected it from reopening and the airy light material has kept it from getting infected. I only wish there was a waterproof version too but beggars can’t be choosers. I HIGHLY recommend trying this before amputation! I’ve even recommended to my vet now and she loved the idea.
My poor doggy has cushings disease therefore she gets sores often and they don't heal easily. One day her tail hit the table and split open. Blood everywhere. It was so scary. I rushed to the vet. The tail is difficult to heal and we were desperate for something to protect her tail but not keep it tightly wrapped for the rest of her life. We found this product searching the internet and are so glad we did! Putting the device on my dog is a challenge. There is a video so that helps. She is recovering and her tail has been saved!
Like many others have said, we were going down the road to amputation per the vet if we could not get Luna's tail to heal not to mention the bloody massacre our house is starting to look like. I cannot stand the thought of amputation for the obvious reasons of pain and cost but most of all, that tail of hers is part of her personality! I cannot imagine how traumatized she would be if she lost it. We ordered on Monday and received the Tail saver on Wednesday. Wow! It did take some adjustments with the fitting and her getting used to it, but Luna is well on her way to a full recovery. For sizing comparison, Luna is a 60 lb pit mix and we purchased a Medium and it is perfect!
This is the absolute BEST product around! My ER vet and specialist surgeon were all very impressed with how secure and protected it kept my dogs tail for the 6-8weeks we had it bandaged from a severe injury.
It never bothered my Great Dane for a moment wearing it and it allowed her injuries to heal … when the initial prognosis in the ER was tail amputation!
So grateful to the team at Tail Saver for their support and advice on securing the harness perfectly and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product to anyone who’s dog has any kind of tail injury. It is a game-changer and, in our cause, 100% a tail saver!
After a little trial and error, we got the adjustments right and it did what it was supposed to do. I have a giant lab that swings his tail like Ken Griffey Jr. After trying several methods we got the tail saver. He had to wear it for a little over a week, but the bleeding stopped and he's back to normal. Thank you.
My only regret with this product is I didn’t buy it sooner! AMAZING PIECE OF KIT!
As I’m from the UK I was hesitant in buying something from the US and it taking too long to arrive. So I didn’t get it thinking by the time it arrived I would have my girls tail fixed!
I tried everything two cones, to doughnut rings and bandages but she could still get them all off and at her tail!
In the end I was risking having to have the tail amputated, I had to order the Happy tail saver but unfortunately it was over the Christmas period. Expecting not to get it until at least January but I came before then and has literally saved my girls tail.
It is still healing but I’m sure another 10days of this on and she will be good as new! Do not hesitate get it! It’s great quality, great for those dogs that absolutely don’t sit still. I have a working line Labrador who does not know how to chill and it has worked wonders for her.
Photos are of her tail before and one taken today 8days of wearing it. She wore it in the house at all times only take off to go toilet and when on walks.
We are very satisfied with the tail sleeve and harness we purchased. It is the only thing that has worked for our dog to keep her from licking a cyst on her tail. Thanks for your help Julie!
Fantastic product. Our lab got happy tail for the first time being boarded. A family member had a lab that had to have its tail amputated for the same reason.
I quickly found this product online and ordered it. While it took 2 solid days for our dog to get used to wearing it, he stopped caring about it shortly after and we were completely healed in 2 weeks. I will say he didn’t do well with the wag straps at first, and it would have been easier to keep his tail in the protector had I stuck to using them from the get go. I did not use the wag straps at all, and if you could get your dog used to them, it would solve a lot of issues with the tail popping out.
We would take the tail saver off each night before he went to bed, and treat with Neosporin. We did take the tail portion off for him to go to the bathroom as he never could quite get used to going with it on (left the chest harness on).
I would highly recommend this for anyone working though happy tail issues. Thank you to the owner for developing such an effective product.
Bishop has a tail like a whip and he smacked it open hitting car window. After a month of laser treatments 3 times week and collagen and sedation , antibiotics and pain meds, he would rip off dressings and smack it open. We were faced with amputation when I found tail saver. No cone was long enough for his big head. He adjusted to it readily and now the tip is healed and hair growing back. Miracle! Going to show my vet this option so other dogs can know about this option. Many thanks.
This is unbelievable it has been months of trying to heal his tail, plus vet bills. This is after a week.
Poor pup had pretty bad happy tail and was leaving blood everywhere in the house, not to mention the pain she was in. This was easy to put on (tip: use hotdogs!), tighten and she didn’t mind it too bad. After 2 weeks, with daily spraying of the recommended solution, plus pain meds & antibiotics from the vet, her tail is as good as new!!
This company is amazing to work with. The first item we ordered kept slipping off of my dog's tail. Julie at the company both emailed and called me to help walk me through the process of how to make sure the item stays in place. She determined that a smaller size might fit better and sent it to me immediately. The new product works PERFECTLY - no more bloody pants and walls! I would definitely recommend this product and company for anyone who has a dog with a way too happy tail!
I got a new work dog (law enforcement) that came from the vendor with a happy tail problem. Our agency vet said they would remove the tail if it didn't stop getting injured. I wasn't having that, so I tried bandages for a few weeks which was completely unsuccessful. I found the Tail Saver online and called the owner who was very helpful. I had some special requirements which she was more than helpful with.
We are 3/4 of the way through our detection school which is pretty rough on the dogs and equipment (its very active). My dog wore the Tail Saver through the first three weeks of training. He had the tail sleeve on if we were inside or he was in his crate resting, and I removed it (but left the harness on) for outside work. The Tail Saver performed exactly as expected and literally saved my dogs tail.
The tip of his tail is completely healed up now and calloused over. I would have paid three times the price for the Tail Saver. This is a fantastic product from a fantastic company, and it survived a very active police k9 training program without a single issue.
My rescue, Lucy, has a paralyzed tail. Likely it was caught in a trap when she was running wild. I believe she has nerve pain and anxiety as she frequently licks it until it is beyond raw. I have tried EVERYTHING I could think of to get it to heal. For about 2 years, she wore a donut collar and that worked great. Then she figured out how to get around the collar. In an act of desperation, my son discovered the K9 Tailsaver. I was reluctant to spend the money for this product, but felt like I didn't know what else to try. I put the Tailsaver on Lucy and she chewed through the straps. So I called the company, at my wits end and almost in tears. Julie was so kind and brainstormed with me different ways to place the Tailsaver and position the straps on my dog. Holy cow- it has worked. The tip of putting Vicks on the device is a good one so Lucy doesn't chew it. The customer support for this product is over and above anything you could imagine. What a relief! Thank you, Julie.
