Heilcopter winch harness

Tue Nov 13, 2012 11:31 am

Can anyone recommend a winch harness for a dog for helicopter lifts? Not something we expect to do too often, but should probably be in our equipment 'bucket'.

Many thanks

Julius K9 do a good one......very supportive for the dog and good for transporting injured K9's too.

Were with the guys at International Rescue Training Centre Wales last weekend and theirs was very good - think they had it made up for them but very compact and easy to use. Might be worth speaking to them.

Good Luck with it

Many thanks Rich. The Julius K9 looks good although would be big to carry in your backpack! but it looks very safe and secure.

Also came across one on www.sar-products.com but there's no price details on the site that I can see via my mobile phone. It might be a flash thing so will check from main computer later. But it looks like it has a nice short length to the clip on which means they could be nice and snug in with you and wouldn't be hanging below you.
