The Large Female GingerLead is designed for large to giant breed, female dogs typically over 55 lbs.
IMPORTANT: Size is determined by Pad Width and Adjusting Dimensions, not the weight of a dog (see sizing table below). The minimum length of the Large size is 38 inches (pad, strap & handle loop adjusts from 38" to 60"), which allows the GingerLead to adjust for shorter breeds like Corgis, Basset Hounds, or other long bodied, short legged dogs. For tall, lean dogs that require less strap, so the handle may be just above its back, consider the Tall size.
The Pad Width is the primary difference between the Small, Medium and Large size. Each size can support dogs up to 200 lbs, and is adjustable for dogs low to the ground so the handler may remain upright. Key on the Pad Width measurement to ensure the proper fit and maximum comfort.
Visit our sizing page for measuring instructions.
• Adjustable, Padded Sling
• Velcro Handle
• Adjustable Leash (may be detached)
• Optional Stay on Straps

My geriatric dog was starting to fall down the stairs as she was trying to go up them. I tried the towel under the belly trick, but that was not helping her or me feel secure. I started doing some research online and came across the Gingerlead. I tried it as soon as it was delivered. It took Madie and I several tries to get it figured out, she wasn't sure how to climb the steps with this "contraption" around her and I wasn't confident I was doing it right! We finally worked out all the kinks and she is walking up the stairs again without fear of falling. She stops at the bottom of the steps and looks back at me, waiting for me to get out the Gingerlead and assist her up the stairs. This product is well worth the money and I am so happy I found this little lifesaver!! I only wish I had known about it back when she had surgery on her knee years ago. I will be recommending this to everyone I know that has a dog with mobility needs. THANK YOU for coming up with such a GREAT product!!
When our 12yr and 9 month old malamute/lab mix hurt her back and couldn't walk on a Tuesday, I remembered seeing somewhere, the gingerlead being used. I looked up the website and bought one for her. We had taken her to the animal hospital and followed up with a consult with our regular vet. They were familiar with the lead and thought it was a great idea.
Well it arrived on Friday, and we put it on her and adjusted it to her size. Using it is a dream and the additional support Lexus gets from it (when needed) is comfortable and really effortless on our part. We had used a towel for the couple of days prior to the gingerlead's arrival and there is no comparison. The gingerlead is hands down better and more comfortable for our dog.
I highly recommend this item to those who's fur-babies need the assistance it offers.
Excellent Customer Service. Called 10 min before they closed and they rushed to get my order out for next day delivery. Our dog just had ACL Surgery. Trying to get her around by wrapping a towel around her just did not work - she did not feel safe and we did not feel it was good for her. Thankful we found GingerLead online - wouldn't be without it during her recovery time. Our dog feels very secure with it and won't come out of her kennel if she doesn't see her GingerLead waiting for her. The comfort of knowing even I can take her out to go to the bathroom is a big help. It is very easy to use - can't imagine being without the GingerLead for 10-12 weeks while she recovers. Highly high recommend. Even the Vet Tech commented that it was a smart choice. Thank You
My female beagle was hit in our driveway and broke both legs on her right side. I have to use the Ginger lead to support 80% of her weight ( 43lbs I know she is over weight) due to a hard cast on the front leg and a soft cast on her rear leg which is plated and pinned. It does a great job getting her around the yard when it is time for her to do her duty. I could use a little wider belt than the 7.5" which is the widest belt sold. The wider belt would spread the weight out a little more due to the fact I have to suppot both front and back both. It still works fantastic and don't know what I would do without it. The towl methold was to cumbersome. This is a great product. Highly recommend!
I ordered the Gingerlead on a Sunday, received very quick was not charged for shipping. My Rottweiler has IVDD and is on her way to getting back to 100%. The Gingerlead is well made and very comfortable for her does not put any pressure on her tummy and helps her feel confident when walking. I normally have a harness for her but she recently broke the handle on it and i had to get a replacement for her quickly. The harness she had previously was great but required time to put on and take off and was a bit of a hassle. CoCo's veterinarian recommended the Gingerlead and im glad i ordered it.
Thank you for such a great product.

My 8 year old Golden tore her ACL completely and was scheduled for an immediate surgery. After some quick research online to find out what had helped other families in this situation, I decided to purchase the GingerLead. What a wonderful product for a dog who needs assistance with walking! It has been so very helpful in the first 3 weeks of her recovery, especially with navigating the stairs we must use to take her outside. I also want to give a shout out to the team at Gingerlead who put a personal note of encouragement on my order form and rushed this product to me within 48 hours of my order. I am a fan!!
My husband and I have a wonderful 11 year old German Shepherd. Her hind legs started getting weak and she is dragging her right leg and foot. She has laser therapy and water therapy every week but we still needed some type of support when walking her. I researched many products and came across Ginger Lead. I spoke with the company and they were so helpful and understanding. We had the lead shipped overnight and started using it right away. It's incredible! It gives her the support she needs and is so easy to put on. We will definitely recommend this lead/harness to all of our family and friends
I bought the Ginger Lead for our 13 year old lab. I like it because it is easy to use, comfortable for the dog, and provides stability for the dog. The Ginger Lead is well built and will help your elderly dog. Our dog is showing sign of arthritis and has a hard time getting up and walking, specially on our wood floors. She can no longer walk up and down stairs. The Ginger Lead allows us to help her with this. We had another sling and we don't use it anymore because it would bunch up and was uncomfortable. I would recommend the Ginger Lead. It's been a life saver for us.
I became aware of Gingerlead when I was searching online for an assistive device to help my 12 year old Lab ,Cassie.
She has been having progressive weakness in her hind legs because of Degenerative Myelopathy.
The Gingerlead has been a Godsend!! She was very accepting of having it placed around her. It has made walking her and assisting her to get in and out of our van so much easier for her and for us.Cassie says "thank you to the inventors of Gingerlead"
My 6 year old lab mix Maggie had surgery today for a torn ACL and meniscus, but has been struggling with the injury since March 6. I was stressing about how to help her up and down the stairs when I found Ginger lead on the internet. It has been a huge help to me and Maggie already, but I'm sure it will continue to be after I bring her home tomorrow. It will be a long six week recovery period, but thanks to Ginger lead, it will be a little easier on both of us!
We purchased the large female GingerLead for our Golden Retriever with a ruptured ACL and subsequent surgery. The lead works excellent for assisting our dog up and down stairs and throttles her back when she gets excited to chase something on her short walks. You can just do more lift on her back end and take the pressure from her repaired leg. It is easy to install and remove which is helpful for the many times per day that we put it on and take it off.
We received a sling from the surgeon after a TPLO surgery on Molly's left rear knee. Molly is a 1year old, 80 lb Labrador. I had difficulty using the sling we had. Had trouble supporting her weight and it hurt my hand. The Gingerlead had more substance & support around her belly which made it much easier walk her. The padded handle makes it easier to set up and hold up her hind quarters while walking. Really happy I purchased the Gingerlead! Thanks
Let me say before I received a request to write a review, I had already e-mailed the company to tell them how thrilled we were with their product. We had purchased locally a different brand but it was to "stiff" and not nearly as comfortable or easy to use as the GingerLead. Our Pitbull of 80 lbs had knee surgery and needed help getting around. This was just incredible. Soft, comfortable and worked great. Extremely fast delivery to AZ. Thank you!
Our almost 13 year old German Shepherd suffers with arthritis in her knees and degenerative spine disease. She was having great difficulty going up and down stairs to go outside. Our New England winter was especially hard on her. A friend recommended the Ginger Lead as he had used one for his old dog. While at first skeptical, our Anja now will go up and nudge it and wait for me to put it on. It is easy and quick and helps me help her.
I've only had the product for a few days but I am extremely satisfied. Shipping was immediate every though I ordered near the end of the day.
The gingerlead construction is of excellent quality and the price was reasonable. It has been a great help to my dog and I couldn't be happier. It is very easy to use and clearly a great deal of thought went into the design. Highly recommended!!
Warmest thanks for sending our lead so promptly and so carefully. I have a fifteen year old Blue Tick Coonhound named Georgia Peach who was slipping backwards down our steep steps. I would follow behind her, but the lead now gives her more confidence and I feel I have more control of her.
Thank you for creating this amazing aide for our beloved aging pets.
I ordered the Large Female hind end harness on a Saturday afternoon for our soon to be 10 year old Boxer girl who is showing weakness in the hind quarters and it arrived on Monday morning!
Tiza has taken to the harness quite well, it is very easy to adjust and this product will definitely help both her and especially us in the future as she needs even more assistance with ambulation.
This product turned out to be the perfect solution for my aging lab. The arthritis in her hips made her skittish to attempt the stairs (she's fallen before), but the Gingerlead gives her the confidence she needs, and enables me complete control to prevent her from falling. She took to it immediately, and its simple design allows quick and easy application and removal. Great product!
Ginger lead is really easy to use. We have a 13 year old German Shepherd female. She was a little uncertain when we first put it on, but a week later and she is OK with it. Easy to use, and really helps to keep the weight off her hind legs so that she can get some exercise and continue to enjoy life! Certainly appreciated the fast fulfillment of our order too! Good job!
Wonderful product! Our Dog had CCL surgery and this device was a life saver! Really helped keep the weight off her leg and also helped guide her in the yard. She had this surgery a couple years back on the other leg and we used a towel. Pretty much impossible. I would recommend this to anyone needing help walking an injured dog or one with arthritis! Worth the money
