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 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.
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!!,
