Hi there, thanks for your question! This harness is designed to safely lift and lower a dog in exposed outdoor areas but I've heard that there are many people who use to it help with the dog's mobility issues as well. The issue is that this harness is heavy and bulky and probably wouldn't be comfortable for all day use, plus it can be cumbersome to fit your dog.
The Ruffwear Web Master Harness is ideal for assisting your dog over obstacles and up flights of stairs, rather than belaying up mountains. It doesn't have the back leg loops but it still distributes weight evenly and has a comfortable fit. There is no weight limit, as long as your dog fits in the girth requirements, he or she should be good to go!

The Ruffwear Web Master Pro Harness is very similar to the Web Master Harness, except it is made with more durable and higher quality materials. There is a demo video on the product page that provides detailed instructions on how to fit your dog in the harness.
