Is your pet a mermaid at heart? Then this drag bag is for them!! Drag bags are great for those pets in our lives that have mobility issues, specifically IVDD, DM, paralysis, or amputations. The indoor waterproof mermaid style bags are made from breathable jersey knit material with a layer of waterproof fabric sewn into the bottom portion of the bag, are easy to get on and off of your pet, and feature a cute little matching mermaid tail sewn onto the bottom of the bag (the tail's only purpose is to look freaking adorable). Drag bags keep your pet's legs, belly, and feet from getting scratches, marks, and burns while they navigate through the world around them, and the waterproof portion keeps accidents from getting spread all over the house. The pattern for the drag bags in my shop were designed by me, an actual IVDD dog owner, and the design is patent pending.

This listing is for a drag bag made from the jersey knit fabric of your choice (a lightweight fabric that will keep your pet cool), a durable rip stop fabric bottom designed to endure the brunt of the friction between your pet at the floor, and has waterproof fabric sewn inside of the bottom of the bag to keep your floors and bedding dry in case of an accident. The bags are machine washable and fast drying, making it easy to get them cleaned up after an accident or a long day of shenanigans. Closures around the waist and neck are velcro for easy and secure closure. The soft side of the velcro will always face towards the pet for comfort.

**IMPORTANT** Each bag is made specifically for your pet! That's right!! These are made to fit your pet, not the other way around. Please be sure to send me the measurements around your pet's neck, around their chest house behind their front legs, length of back leg(s) from belly to toes, and length of body from the base of their neck to the base of their tail. Without these measurements, I cannot start making the bag! A measurement guide can be found in the listing photos.

Need to add padding or a mesh back to the bottom of your pet's bag? Check out the other items in the drag bag section of my shop to add those to your order.

Having a differently abled pet means making small adaptations in your life and theirs to make their routine easier. Our little one, Chloe, is a 2x IVDD surgery survivor, so we know how taxing the process can be. From initial diagnosis, making the difficult decision about surgery, and care after surgery or treatment, we know how emotionally exhausting and expensive it can be. That is exactly why I price my bags on the low end of the spectrum. I'm not here to take advantage of someone who may be going through the most difficult and expensive time of their life and the life of their dog.

These bags are designed to take the brunt of the friction between your floor and your pet, so the fabric will pill and deteriorate eventually, depending on frequency of use. It's better that it's the bag and not your fur baby, though!!

Does your pet have specific needs not addressed here? Send me a message! I gladly accept custom orders including requests for additional padding or adaptations based on the pet's specific needs.

Any attempt to replicate or sell my products second hand will result in legal action against you and/or your shop/business.

Thank you so much for looking! Kisses to your fur babies!! :)

I can't express how happy I am with my purchase from HandiPetsPlus. My 4 year old Pitt Bull Terrier suffers from IVDD/IVDH, and I was worried he would never be able to fully enjoy the rest of his life due to fear of injury to his hind legs. I ordered a custom drag bag from HandiPetsPlus, the creator worked with me to design a custom-bag, and even bought custom fabric for my pup. They helped me determine what the best choices for my pup would be, and even helped me to make sure my measurements seemed right. The drag bag is incredibly well made. It holds up incredibly well, washes wonderfully, and fits perfectly. The slicker/tougher bottom surface has helped him learn how to regain mobility and now he's so much more independent. I'll definitely be buying more items from this seller! Thank you!

This woman is amazing. I have to alter the bags a little due to my dogs unique disability where her legs are tucked under her instead of dragging, but she loves the freedom of not having to use her chair all the time. I even let her roam my God-parents backyard and she was a spaz of energy. The merpup tail is a hysterically cute touch.
