The GingerLead® is a soft, padded belly sling with a leash & handle designed to help dogs recovering from knee, hip or back injuries, dogs with debilitating conditions and dogs who have weak hind legs when walking. It’s ideal for disabled dogs needing some assistance with their balance and/or mobility, as well as dogs suffering from arthritis. It has a soft inner lining, where it comes into contact with your dog’s skin or fur, and a durable exterior. It is easily used by passing the support sling under the belly and bringing the straps together with the attached padded handle. For additional control, a leash extends from the handle and connects to your dog’s collar or chest harness with a snap hook. The straps that extend from the support sling and the leash are adjustable. The leash is also detachable. They are machine washable. GingerLead may be used with both male and female dogs and can be used in conjunction with a WiggleLess Dog Back Brace.

    Adjusting the GingerLead

    The GingerLead is adjustable to fit various sizes of dogs and owners.

    Support Pad

    Sliders, attached to the straps on each side of the support pad, allow the straps to be lengthened or shortened. Position the sliders at the same location on each side of the support pad to keep the strap length the same on both sides. The handle moves along one strap. The slider feeds through the handle when needed. Once adjusted, slide the handle to the top.


    Shorten or lengthen the leash through the plastic buckle that attaches to the handle. A strap clip slides along the leash to hold the loose end.

    GingerLead® - How To Use

    1. Pass the sling under your pet’s belly holding the straps on each side of your dog. The handle should always be on the left side of your pet.

    2. Hold the handle with attached leash on top. The corduroy lining in the handle should be facing down. Align the free strap on the right side of your dog under the handle.

    3. Wrap the handle under and around the free strap and close the ends of the handle together so that the free strap is inside the handle and the leash is on top.

    4. Attach the snap hook from the leash to your dog's collar or a standard chest harness. Now you're ready to go!

    IMPORTANT: Always follow any instructions from your veterinarian for your dog's specific condition.
