16 Year Old Golden Retriever Walking with a GingerLead Sling

Ginger, our 80 lb. Golden Retriever, demonstrates how the GingerLead sling can help support a dog’s rear legs, while the attached leash and handle provide control of her speed. Her brother Wilson makes a cameo appearance with the GingerLead attached to his standard chest harness (which is available at most pet stores).
“This is our 16 year old Golden Retriever, Miss Bobbi. We just received our Ginger Lead one week ago... It has given her confidence and trust. Without the guidance of it, she falls and is unable to get up. You would never know when watching this video that she has multiple issues... I highly recommend everyone who has a dog...any age, any size, who has issues with mobility to get a GingerLead. Don't wait until it gets too bad... I am just amazed at how great this has helped our miss Bobbi... I only wished I had got her one several months ago... it was starting to affect my back with having to pick her up every time she fell or to go up and down the stairs.. Now, with the GingerLead I don't have those back worries... And she just loves having it on... As you see in the video, she thinks she can run!”
Max, a young, exhuberant, 90 lb. male Labrador Retriever, is being gently lifted up stairs with a Medium (Large Male) GingerLead harness during his recovery from TPLO surgery on his knee after tearing his CCL (Cranial Cruciate Ligament, which is the equivalent of a person’s ACL). The GingerLead provides confidence for Max, knowing that he’s being supported and will not fall if he stumbles (which he does towards the top of the stairs).  The attached leash prevents Max from running ahead.
How to adjust the straps from the GingerLead sling to allow the handler to remain upright while gently lifting a dog. The metal sliders on each strap allow the sling to be adjusted for the proper height to fit you and your dog comfortably without having to bend over.

16 Year Old  Golden Retriever
Ginger, our Golden Retriever, underwent multiple orthopedic surgeries, the first at 6 months old for severe hip dysplasia (the surgery was called a Triple Pelvic Osteotomy or TPO and is usually only performed on puppies a year old or younger). A few years later she underwent surgery on her left knee for a Patellar Luxation. Ginger was almost 10 at the time we made this video.  This is her story. Click here to learn more about Ginger...
Exercise is very important to help delay muscle atrophy associated with DM or Degenerative Myelopathy in dogs.  The GingerLead padded sling can be very beneficial once there are signs of mobility loss.  The integrated leash may be attached to a chest harness to provide additional stability as the disease progresses.

Chihuahua Puppy Learns to Walk Again after Brain Surgery

"Frida was rescued from a hoarding situation with her mom and littermates when she was only a few months old.  We adopted Frida at 12 weeks old and while she was a typical puppy - loved running around and playing and chewing - we knew pretty early on she had some health problems. The rescue we adopted her from told us she had luxating patellas but we knew that was a common issue in Chihuahuas and weren't too worried...”  Click Here for the full story.
