Are you prepared if your dog is sick or injured on the trail?
Dog injury or illness while hiking, skiing or snowshoeing is actually pretty common…
Paw abrasion from rocky ground, being impaled by a stick, wild animal encounter, fight with another dog, snake bite, upset stomach… anything can happen.
And, your dog may not be able to make it back to the car on their own. (We know because this happened to us!)
Until now, there wasn’t a safe way to carry your dog in an emergency situation.
The Airlift by Fido Pro – a safe, packable dog harness
We created the Airlift so that no dog lover would have to go through what we did – being unprepared when our furry best friend, Remi, was injured miles from the trailhead.
The Airlift emergency dog harness comes in several sizes to fit dogs between 20 - 150 lbs. The harness packs into a lightweight stuff sack designed to live at the bottom of your hiking backpack (or your dog’s!).
Whether you’re a mile from the trailhead or more, hiking with the Airlift gives you peace of mind knowing you can safely carry your dog in an emergency situation.LEARN MORE
The Airlift design is recognized by veterinarians as a safe and effective way to carry dogs from 20 - 150 lbs. in emergency situations.
Used by Search & Rescue
Because the Airlift is 8 oz., packs into a small stuff sack and is easy to use, it's recommended and used by the National Association For Search And Rescue.

Airlift by Fido Pro - Emergency Dog-Carrying Harness
The Airlift is a lightweight, packable harness to safely carry your dog if they become injured or sick while you're hiking, snowshoeing or skiing.
The Airlift is...
✔️Easy to use and recommended by veterinarians and Search & Rescue
✔️Lightweight (8.5 oz-10.5 oz depending on size)
✔️Packable in a stuff sack (so it can always live in the bottom of your backpack)
✔️Designed to fit medium, large & extra-large dogs

No matter if you’re a mile from the trailhead or more, you’ll be able to carry your dog to safety... even if you're alone.
Choose the right size:
The measurements listed below are the ranges that will fit each Airlift size.
Medium Size: 20 - 45 lbs., 9 - 14 inches from back leg to front leg
Large/Original Size: 45 - 70 lbs., 13 - 18 inches from back leg to front leg
XL Size: 70 - 150 lbs., 17 - 24 inches from back leg to front leg (consider the Airlift XL-2 package, which includes additional accessories)
If your dog is in between sizes, we recommend buying the larger size. This is not a custom-fit harness, and it's safe and functional if the Airlift is a little loose on the dog. But, please measure your dog to make sure your Airlift will not be too small.
See the how-to guide & videos below to properly measure your dog.
What Customers & Veterinarians Are Saying...
As a veterinarian, I am delighted to see such a well designed, useful sling for carrying a dog. Thank you so much for your time and passion and I am sure it will save a lot of dogs.
Having the confidence to safely and effectively immobilize your dog and extract them from a remote location to seek medical attention is invaluable. The care and attention to canine anatomy is evident in the Airlift’s design, and the convenience is obvious in the weight of the product.
My dog was injured, we were only about one mile from the car but it was late evening and there was a storm moving in. So glad I had my Fido Pro Airlift!
