GingerLead Support Slings are Made In USA
Made in U.S.A
How to Measure Support Pad Width Measure from the front of the hind legs (in front of the penis for male dogs) to the base of the rib cage to determine the support pad width.  For barrel chested dogs (i.e. Boxers), downsizing is common.  Having trouble?  Try the Towel Test below.
GingerLead Rear Support Pad Width Measurement
Towel Test for Pad Width FEMALE DOGS Fold a bath towel to 7.5 inches wide to simulate the Large Female GingerLead, then sling it under her belly.  If that's too big, then re-fold the towel to 5.5 inches wide to simulate the Medium/Large GingerLead.  If that's too big, then re-fold the towel to 4 inches wide to simulate the Small Female GingerLead.  If the small is too big for her, try our Mini GingerLead. MALE DOGS Fold a bath towel to 5.5 inches wide to simulate the Medium/Large 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 the Small Male GingerLead.  If that's too big, try our Mini GingerLead.  Male Dachshunds typically use the Mini GingerLead with the sling behind their penis. Now you should be able to determine which size is the most comfortable for your dog. Check with your veterinarian if you have any questions about whether a GingerLead will fit your dog's needs given their specific medical condition(s).   ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS?  Call us at (303) 482-2074

Although Boxers are large breed dogs, they often use either the Large Male or Small slings due to their barrel chest and narrow waist.  The Large Female GingerLead is typically too wide for a Boxer, Pit Bull or similar breeds.
Strap Length* 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.

Most slings may cover a male Dachshund's penis since it's located on their belly. Our Mini GingerLead can fit behind your Dachshund's penis allowing support without the sling getting soiled.
