“The GingerLead is clearly designed by people who know what it is like to have a dog needing assistance. I find that adjusting of the straps to suit my dog's size, and my arm length, was very easy and intuitive. Materials and construction are high quality, and the leash detaches easily so you can throw the pad in the wash. But the most unique benefit of the GingerLead is that the connection of the handle and the leash gives you security from the front and the back at the same time. If my dog suddenly needs more support, or a squirrel dashes across our path - I can instantly react with either support of the back end or control of the front end - or both - as needed. This has made me more confident walking my dog in the post surgical period, therefore more well-controlled walking and faster recovery.”
“I am a Registered Vet Tech who recently purchased one of your harnesses for our own dogs and we love it! We have a 13 year old Golden with spinal stenosis/hind end weakness; a 10 year old Golden who had an FHO on one leg and the other is hanging on by a thread; and an 8 year old three legged Wheaton mix, who's only back leg gives out from time to time now. We have definitely put this harness to good use!
I recommend your harness at least once a week. I truly believe you have an excellent product-also because I have a bad back and your harness is much easier on it.
“Lady, our 15-year-old German Shepherd has advancing arthritis which is severely affecting her hips. The four steps out the back door to her kennel have been treacherous for both her and my wife and I as we tried to support her weight to prevent the inevitable stumble and fall. Even with us holding her harness she had a number of bad experiences and was obviously becoming afraid of the steps.
We just received our Ginger Lead and had it adjusted within a couple of minutes. We put the Ginger Lead on Lady and walked her around the house for a few minutes to get her and us used to it and to fine tune the adjustments. The first time down the steps Lady wasn't sure just what was going on but made it outside without stumbling. I felt much more secure for both her and myself as I had total control of her bodyweight with the Ginger Lead clipped to her harness. On the way back into the house I took just part of her weight with the Ginger Lead and Lady climbed the steps like a champ. That was this morning. Just a bit ago I picked up the Ginger Lead and asked Lady if it was time to go outside. She became excited as she usually does when she sees her leash and stood pacing in place as I put the Ginger Lead on her. She went up and down the steps as if she had been using the Ginger Lead her whole life.
My wife and I had been dreading this winter and didn't know how we were going to get Lady in and out for her daily business, much less for any exercise. With the Ginger Lead we are much more confident that Lady will get her needs met with much greater safety which will improve her quality of life and hopefully keep her injury free.
Your product is far superior to any similar products we found on the market. I'm impressed with the quality and design. Your customer service and shipping was top notch. Even though it was one of the more expensive units we found, I think it was worth every penny and will be recommending it to everyone with a dog in need of some extra support.”
“We feel so lucky to have found GingerLead - it has saved my back and my sanity! We have a beautiful lab named Latte, who has the mind of a pup and the body of an older dog. We found out a couple of months ago that Latte needed Surgery for a torn ACL on her rear knee. We were having an impossible time with Latte and her mobility, especially going up and down steps. I ended up carrying her around everywhere - not easy on a 65 lb dog. Then our Vet told us about
GingerLead. What an incredible product. With the GingerLead all I had to do was support Latte, not carry her. What a difference that made. Then Latte had her surgery. Again the GingerLead saved us. I don't think I could have carried Latte around for all of those weeks. I was able to keep Latte by my side and still let her have a little independence. The GingerLead is a lifesaver! I only wish we had found it sooner.”
“My name is Lucy and I am a 2 year old black labrador. I had
cruciate ligament surgery eleven days ago and all I can say is my
GingerLead has been a God send. My owner ordered the GingerLead before
I went in for surgery so I would have it when it was time to recover.
I have been told by my vet to take it easy and slowly get better. The
GingerLead has helped me get up and down the stairs to my dog run
which I would not have been able to do without being carried. It is
winter and the steps are very icy so the GingerLead helped my owners
move me up and down the stairs. My leg is getting better and the
GingerLead is helping my owners to control my walking ('cause I'm
feeling better and really want to RUN). 10 more weeks and I get to
return to my regular routine. Thanks again GingerLead!”
“Just wanted to let you know that Bruno's GingerLead is coming in VERY handy! He insists on going up the stairs at night to sleep with our family, and downstairs in the morning, but he waits patiently for his GingerLead. Of course we use it all the time, and Bruno seems very comfortable with it. He now WANTS to go out for a walk rather than laying around the house - he's on the go again! The
GingerLead has really added to Bruno's quality of life.
I can't wait to show our Vets this great product!”
“The GingerLead came on
Saturday just as you thought. It's perfect and has worked out amazing. We
were using a robe belt or a towel and the GingerLead is SO MUCH BETTER. I
had to take Onyx back to the vet hospital for her Fentanyl patch removal and
took in the extra brochure you sent me and of course Onyx with the
GingerLead. They loved it too. They took front and back copies of your
brochure and made a file for it. She said they are telling all their clients
in need of having a sling for their pet about GingerLead. I've been telling
people about your great GingerLead too.
Thank you so much.”
received the GingerLead on Friday. Thank you very, very much for the superb delivery.
Taylor, our 10-year old Chocolate Lab has adapted extremely well to using and expecting it as a part of her harness configuration to her healing process.
Last Sunday she was completely paralyzed by an FCE, Fibrocartilaginous Embolism. A week later she is definitely en route to a slow but excellent recovery. Using the GingerLead with her chest harness we are able to provide her the support that allows her to realize that she can use her limbs again. We, our friends and neighbors are completely amazed. She has learned that the “contraption” is to her benefit and has adapted to depending upon it for the support and the facility it
offers to help her to regain her strength.
Thank you, thank you very much.”
“Trenton Pet Hospital also has purchased a "Ginger Lead"! This device acts as a sling to assist in comfortably lifting those pets who are having difficulty with mobility, particularly in their hind end. Whether it is due to illness, or during post-operative care, this Ginger Lead allows your pet's caregiver to safely assist in movement, without causing further damage to the pet, or to the person doing the lifting!”
“Thank you for recently delivering the GingerLead to me in advance
of my dog's knee surgery. Having a 110 pound Great
Pyrenees and living on the second floor had me concerned about my
ability to take care of him properly after surgery. Having the sling
in advance allowed him to get used to it. I brought him home from
surgery today and it worked out perfectly! I was able to support and
navigate him down and back up the stairs this afternoon by myself, even
though he was groggy and uncoordinated from his pain meds.
is a totally awesome solution. I hope you will drop off some of your
brochures at the VRCC hospital. Adam's surgeon, Dr. Devitt, was
quite impressed when I showed it to him.”
“Our dog Dudley just had a tibial plateau leveling osteotomy and has many weeks/months of rehab ahead of him. The most difficult part of this is that we live on a hill and have many steps that we have to go down just to get to the yard. My boyfriend has been carrying him down the steps every time he needs to go to the bathroom, but I am unable to because he is too heavy and I worry about setting him down gently enough. Your gingerlead allows us to take the weight off his back end so that either of us can carefully guide him down the stairs.
I am so grateful for both your product and your excellent customer service.”
“The Gingerlead is
working out well and is a useful tool for helping support my dog
Gingersnap's weak legs and hips. It is made out of durable material and easy
to use! I would recommend this Gingerlead to anyone who needs help for their
aged or surgical animal.”
“Thank you for developing such a wonderful device to help following
surgery. We have used it continuously since Bubba's release from the
hospital and I don't think we could manage without it. We also want
to thank you for going the extra mile to get the GingerLead to us on short
notice. Thank you so much.”
“Thank-you so much for the GingerLead for my 10-year-old Bichon
Frise. It is designed perfectly! Just what I needed for Jake after his spinal surgery. We were given a support harness by the vet but it had short handles which was back-breaking for me and it didn't have a lead. The GingerLead is EXCELLENT!! And shipping took only 2 days! I'm thrilled with the product and the speedy service.”

“Our 5 1/2 year old female great dane, Payton, had surgery to repair a torn ligament in her knee. Realizing that as part of her rehab, she was not supposed to walk up an down stairs, I knew I had an issue considering we have stairs at all entrances to our home. Given Payton's size/height, I was offered the new 'Tall' version of the GingerLead. We couldn't have been more pleased w/ the ease of use, the comfort level provided to our dog, the quality of the product and most importantly, it allows us to safely assist our dog up and down stairs so that she's able to go outside to the bathroom and for rehabilitation walks. As much as I wished pet owners didn't have to go through pet surgeries, I would highly recommend this product to those who do.”
“I received the harness and it works absolutely great. My black lab Kasey suffered a Spinal Stroke, leaving her back leg paralyzed. The harness is a life saver as Kasey
weighs 100 lbs and the beach towel trick wasn't working. Thank you very much for sending this life saver in such a speedy manner. I will spread the word that this product
actually lives up to the advertisement. Kasey is already showing signs of improvement....thank God.”
“THANK YOU!!!! I received our Gingerlead last night and it works. We are in a 40 foot RV for the summer and our 18 year old dog feared falling down the RV steps. You could see the fear in his eyes as his back legs "caved" in on him trying to go down the steps. It broke our hearts. We even considered going back to our house for the rest of the summer. When we used the harness, one could see the relief in his eyes.
Again, thank you.”
“Just wanted to say thank you very much for the fast shipping and great product. My 100lb dog had a stroke and lost the use of her hind legs. A search at the local pet product chains for this kind of harness/aid was useless. Item was received in one day, in California. Made moving
Penny around much easier.”
“This thing was a life saver. It really helped us get her up when she couldn't get herself up (which was anytime she laid down) or tried to get out of a crate. It fits on very comfortably and comes up and around and has a handle so it works as a leash
