GingerLead Dog Support Sling & Rehabilitation Harness

The GingerLead Support and Rehabilitation Harness is a high-quality padded support sling designed to help you safely support your dog to get from A to B. The GingerLead harness fits comfortably under your dog's lower body and effectively takes the pressure off their hind legs. The GingerLead is ideal, but not limited to the following health issues:

  • Arthritis
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Back and spinal injuries
  • Knee or Joint injuries
  • Hind leg paralysis
  • Surgery recovery
  • Stroke recovery
  • Overweight dogs
  • Canine Vestibular Disease
  • Canine Cushing's Disease
  • Canine Wobblers' Syndrome

Your dog's quality of life and freedom of mobility is greatly impacted by health issues and/or recovery. The GingerLead Rehabilitation Harness is a versatile and easy-to-use product that helps you improve their life while preventing strain or injuries on your knees and back.

MATERIALS: The GingerLead Harness has adjustable nylon straps with a handle for easy support. The nylon handle is wrapped with a soft corduroy material that's soft to touch and comfortable to hold. The GingerLead's thick padding (body support pad) is also covered with a soft corduroy material that rests against your dog's body preventing skin irritations, chafing, discomfort and pinching. The GingerLead harness has an optional lead that can be clipped to your dog's collar or harness.

ADVICE: Larger dogs or dogs with severe injuries may need additional support. We recommend fitting the GingerLead to your dog's lower body and fitting a regular dog harness (such as the Julius K9 IDC Powerharness) to your dog's upper body.

For water-based mobility rehabilitation training, we recommend the Julius K9 Swimming/Rehabilitation harness. This harness is made of a thick neoprene material and wraps around your dog's entire body for full support. The harness has a thick handle stitched directly to the top and comes with a set of foam pads for additional buoyancy in the water!

If you have any questions about which size or harness is best for your dog, feel free to call us at 1300 668 931!

The right size harness for your dog is based on three things:

  • The gender of your dog
  • Pad Width - The distance between the base of your dog's rib cage to the front of the ir hind leg.
  • Adjustment Length - The measurement of where the handle would be to underneath your dog's lower body and returning to the handle.

The following table will help you decide which harness is right for your dog. If you need help selecting the right harness for your dog, please call us for assistance.
