Soft, padded belly sling with a lead and handle to help assist dogs with their balance and mobility post surgery or those suffering from arthritis, hip dysplasia, degenerative myelopothy and other debilitating conditions.
Available in male and female.
Can be used with either a your dogs’ collar or harness.
Support Pad Width – Measure from the front of the hind legs (in front of the penis for male dogs) towards your dogs chest to determine the support pad width.
For wide chested dogs – Boxers etc, measure just the belly area to the base of the rib cage. Downsizing is common for these breeds.
Female Dogs – Fold a bath towel to 7.5 inches wide to simulate a Large Female GingerLead, then sling it under her belly. If that’s too big, then re-fold the towel to 4 inches wide to simulate a Small Female GingerLead. If she is in between sizes, re-fold the towel to 5.5 inches to simulate a Medium (Large Male) GingerLead. If the small is too big for her, try the Mini GingerLead.
Male Dogs – Fold a bath towel to 5.5 inches wide to simulate a Medium (Large Male) GingerLead, then sling it under your dog’s belly in front of his penis. If that’s too big, then re-fold the towel to 3.5 inches wide to simulate a Small Male GingerLead. If that’s too big for him, try our Mini GingerLead.
Male Dachshunds typically use the Mini GingerLead with the sling behind their penis.
Adjusting Dimensions – Measure starting where the handle of the GingerLead will rest in your hand (while you are standing upright), continue under your dog’s belly, up the other side, then back to your hand completing the loop. If it measures 37″ or less, the Tall size should be considered.
