I am so happy to have found this product. I knew, from past incidents, that getting our dog's happy tail to heal was going to be a long hard process. My dog's tail goes constantly & hits everything like a hard rope. It was not difficult to put together & on our dog & he accepted it with no problem. He's healing & I'm confident his tail will be fine. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your creation.
It is a little difficult to set up, but once on, it seems to be working. My dog is a little bewildered by it, but doesn't seem to be chewing it or his tail. I am only a couple of days in, but so far so good.
The tail saver was awesome for my pup. She got used to it pretty quickly. Her tail healed up in a week. I kept the tail saver on for another 2 weeks. Now I'm glad I have it in case of future injury.
I used the wag strap for a couple days. My dog acted as if it was really confining her movements, so I took it off, and she did just fine without it. Also, the velcro strap hit her tail at a weird place, and was causing irritation, so I stopped using it. It stayed in place without the velcro strap and wag strap, and she healed up well. I would recommend this product to others.
We were at a loss before we found this product. Our dog’s tail, which had initially just had a tiny cut, had become infected and was failing to heal. We had tried bigger and bigger cones as well as wrapping her tail in pipe insulation to no avail and we were becoming resigned to the possibility that her tail would have to be amputated. Fortunately, this product worked perfectly. Although she found it uncomfortable at first, she quickly got used to it and was able to play, pee, and poop with it on (and without getting it dirty). Her tail is now healed. Thank you so much!!
This is a game changer…..my boy has the happiest of tails leading to much bloodshed….just got our tail saver and what a relief , no more wacking the tail on his crate in the car, and he’s still able to move freely
Once it’s fitted, it’s easy on and off
Absolutely love this product. It arrived from America quickly but took 12 days to clear customs. 3 days of use and tail has dried up beautifully, it definitely beats using large buster collars and he was still able to get to end of tail. I sent dogs measurements, it fits perfectly but does need practice to fit on dog and took two of us. I’m so thrilled with product and I have a much happier dog. Thank you
Good quality. Difficult to put on.
My dog injured her tail when a door slammed on it. The doctor stitched and bandaged her up, but she kept shaking the bandage off no matter what we tried. Enter the TailSaver. It kept my dogs tail weighted down with the tail tie, so she would not shake as much. While the bandage still ended up coming off, the tail was protected in the TailSaver, and she was not able to hit her tail up against anything and break open the wound. After two weeks, we just removed the TailSaver and she has healed up well. She may not have been a fan of wearing it, but it definitely did it's job. Thank you so much!
It will take two people to put it on a giant, uncooperative dog. Being alone I haven’t been able to adjust it yet. He’s 175# and doesn’t cooperate. The TailSaver is very well made. I’m just not sure about the plastic clasps.
We have a large breed Mastiff mix that has happy tail syndrome. We have tried EVERYTHING over the years to heal his tail when he has opened up a new spot. The tail saver is the BEST solution to expediting the healing process. The tail saver stays on well so the dog can't repeatedly lick his sore tail. The size was perfect and easy to select based on the measurements on the website. All dogs with happy tail syndrome need the tail saver!
I would have given the tail saver 5 stars but my dog has had to wear it daily for almost 2 weeks for the tail to heal and the piece on his back where the metal loop is ( to clip a leash to) has a hole/worn spot on the seam that will surely not hold up to long term use of the tail saver. The tail saver also is difficult to get on the dog until you have practice putting it on.
We have been using this for about a week. Rosey has gotten used to it but still wants to try to get it off. It works really well. It really does protect the tail and it already seems to be healing. she can still wag her tail but she cant swing it as hard and the padding protects the tail very well. I am very impressed with the system and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
The TailSaver is terrific. Before receiving it our lab had to wear a cone and we had been using a plastic shield with bandages on the tail so that it could heal and remain open to air but it was hard to keep the shield secured with her happy tail. She was stressed with the cone and the plastic shield and bandage changes so we had to sedate her. Since receiving the TailSaver she is much calmer and the tail is healing nicely (even though she continues to wag away and hit walls and cabinets). The only difficulty I had was with the initial fitting of the TailSaver. The written directions are not readable with such small print. I worked my way through it and did watch videos although it was not easy. Customer service did respond to questions quickly even on the weekend which was very helpful. When she has a recurrence in the future having the TailSaver from the beginning will help shorten the healing process. Definitely a lifesaver!
We ordered this product after trying everything! Our dog has a thyroid problem and lost the hair on the tip of his tail. He had an open wound from wagging and banging his tail into walls. Nothing worked or stayed on until we received K9 tailsaver! It works great, stays in place, is well made and is allowing his tail to heal. It doesn’t even bother him! Thank you for making such a great product that helped our sweet pup!
This product is the perfect answer to any happy tail situation. Up to this point we have not been able to properly handle dogs we come across with happy tail this is truly a lifesaver
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.
