Ever tried to crate your dog?

How long did you last? You cannot reason with a dog that just wants to chase squirrels.

You can help your dog without locking her in a crate. Your dog can go for a walk as soon as the brace is fit.

ACL Tear?

A dog leg brace is the preferred treatment for dogs that cannot have surgery.

90% of what we do is brace knees, we focus on being the best at it!

If you were to tear your ACL, you would choose from 14 different sizes of human knee braces.

There are over 200 breeds of dogs. You would have to have hundreds of dog brace sizes to be successful.

That is why Hero Braces are custom made to each dog!

A personal story from our Founder and CEO

Ben Blecha sitting on slide with son, daughter, and dog

When I was diagnosed with bone cancer at 16, I wanted to make a day trip to Omaha, have my treatment, and return to track practice. My journey was much different.

If you are here, something bad has happened to your family member. Likely you have been told surgery is the best answer. Crating is the other. Both take time and work.

You have found bracing and have the hope that it is the magic fix. Although we have had some fabulous outcomes, there is still hard work, adjustments, and therapy ahead, all of which make dog braces successful.

As an amputee, I still put on my leg every morning before I get up to use the restroom. Sometimes I get frustrated and have to adjust my leg. AND yet I still live a full and wonderful life.

IF you are prepared for this journey, we want to help you succeed!
