The Tall Male GingerLead is designed for shorter handlers, or tall, lean dogs (male or female) typically over 70 lbs.
IMPORTANT: Size is determined by Pad Width and Adjusting Dimensions, not the weight of a dog (see sizing table below). Commonly used with taller breeds like Great Danes, Greyhounds, Dobermans, or other tall, lean dogs.
The maximum length of the Tall size is 37 inches (pad, strap & handle loop adjusts from 26" to 37"), which allows the handle to be closer to a tall dog's back. If a dog is more than 37 inches around its belly, consider the Large size.

• Adjustable, Padded Sling with cutout
• Velcro Handle
• Adjustable Leash (may be detached)
• Optional Stay on Straps

I purchased the ginger lead for my old Dobie, Nitro - who is 11 1/2. He is having trouble with his back leg and an old spinal injury that was just discovered. It took a little practice for both of us to get the hang of putting it on and use. I do believe it's helping him quite a bit - especially on steps and uneven ground. He seems to have more confidence as well. The lead is very well made and Nitro appears to be very comfortable in it. He is big enough that I can let go and he can walk freely, so an even bigger bonus. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to help their dog with walking issues and has the patience to help them adjust. One word of caution - always pay very careful attention as your dog nor yourself is used to walking in such close proximity. We have taken a couple of tumbles when he would lurch on his bad leg. Now I don't walk to enjoy myself as well, but pay constant attention when he is near me....and it works great. The people are great to work with.
Greetings, Ginger Lead: I want to extend my gratitude for offering a truly fantastic product. I am the owner of a 13 year old retired racing Greyhound, who has experienced deteriorating mobility over the course of the past year. My dog mostly struggles when encountering slick surfaces. I was looking for a product that was easy to use (size, quick on/off) and effective for my dog's problem. Ginger Lead has delivered on both counts. Ginger Lead is a quality product, constructed of durable nylon and soft corduroy. It is very easy to adjust the size. When fitted properly, the product sits perfectly in position to provide support, yet far enough forward to not interfere with urination or defecation. I attach Ginger Lead's long strap to my dog's ID collar, while walking him with a supplemental martingale collar. I attach the product when talking my dog for a walk, helping him up/down stairs, and providing support across slick floors. Well worth the price! Recommended.
It was a real blessing that I was able to find the GingerLead for our Great Dane. I actually was thinking about calling Marilyn to tell her how great it is working out. Our "boy", Atlas, was a little surprised when I first used the GingeLead on him but we would be lost without it. The GingerLead provides enough support for me - I am 5'1" - to assist him in getting up - even if he is lying on his side. Atlas is about 145 lbs. I leave it on him when he goes outside and it assists in "steadying" him if his back legs start to weaken. We are very happy with the GingerLead and I would recommend it to anyone. We really love the design. When Atlas is on his side, I can place the GingerLead under him and pull it around him without him ever moving. Then I can assist him in getting up.
Thank you so much for creating such a great product. I have a very old golden retriever who has severe hip problems and arthritis. He is a great dog and is no where near the end of his life, but he was no longer able to stand/walk to relieve himself. I tried everything and nothing worked. The ginger lead with its extra wide cushioned strap was exactly what I needed. I was able to easily get him to his feet and then walk along side him so he wouldn't fall. After using the ginger lead for about a week, he still needs help getting to his feet, but is now able to walk around the back yard by himself. I leave the ginger lead attached and then help lift him into the house and then remove it and set it near by for next time. It works great!!
Recently My Lil' Girl had a spinal injury and was unable to even stand up by herself. She also has severe arthritis in her hind quarters. We were really not sure she would be able to come back, but I should have known better, my girl is a Fighter ! She is doing so much better, but still has residual weakness and some neurological issues with her back end...so after looking at and evaluating all the possible products we decided on the Gingerlead. It is FANTASTIC ! We love it and it has given our girl the ability to get around safely while she heals. It may be that she will always need some support and that is just fine. Now that we have this product we know we can handle her safely !
I bought the GingerLead for my 9 year old male GSD, Trooper.
Trooper has been diagnosed with degenerative meyelopathy. At this point his rear left leg is wobbly, affecting his balance and maneuverability. The GingerLead has been a great help, because it supports his back end, making it easier for me to help him get outside.
As his disease progresses he will need a different means of support, especially when his front legs become weak. At this point in time, the GingerLead is just what we need.
This product is very easy to use, and fits Trooper comfortably. The people at Customer Service were excellent, and as promised the product arrived within a few days.
Our Rottie Chubbs had surgery on a slipped disc about a month ago and we researched everything possible to help him move around. A few clicks in we found the best product for our needs. It's crazy easy to set up and attach to a harness. The design is perfect and fits well under his belly. Our big boy is fully supported and comfortable when we take him out to potty and short walks to get his legs working. I honestly believe using this has aided him in his recovery since the effort is minimal to get him out of his crate. I highly recommend going with Ginger Lead as the go-to product for your dog.
Our 12 year old retriever ruptured an ACL. Keeping him quiet in a crate, or leaving him downstairs alone was not an option. He accepted the help of the ginger lead immediately; even stands quietly for us to put on the GL. Surgery is next week, and I am sure it will be even more helpful when we bring him home. It is easy to use, very comfortable for him, and very helpful in distributing weight so that even I, his mom, can help maneuver him around. He feels secure going up and down the stairs with this device - we are extremely pleased.
This is great
I have a Great Dane whose is taller than average
He is the sweetest dog.Now that he has reached and age which is old for a Dane his back legs have weakened and not always steady, I put runners all thru house ,so he is ok there.
The Ginger lead is wonderful it makes it easier when we go to vet or walking because the floor there is slick so now when he slips he doesn't land onthe floor and struggle trying to get up we are able to keep him steady and walking .
I was very impressed with the service and quality of the sling for my dog Buster. He is a 11 year old boxer who is having a lot of problems with his hips and some days are really bad getting him up. The sling is very easy to use and he doesn't seem to mind having it on to go outside for walks. Seems like he knows it is helping him get up and around without falling or bumping into things. I told my vet about it and they have other clients that could benefit from the sling. Thank you very much!
I have a 65# female greyhound, so she's slender and tall. I got the tall male version and it's so much easier than using a material shopping bag or towel. It's sturdy, padded and gives more support to the dog when she squats. The padded handle makes it easier for me to help hold her long enough for her to hop outside and use the bathroom. I keep it handy for when she gets up in the morning and is a little shaky on her legs. Glad I got it.
I ordered this product for my Great Dane mix after surgery to repair a torn CCL in his hind leg. This product has been a lifesaver! It gives me the ability to lessen the strain on his good leg and keep him off the healing leg completely.
The other great thing is that I ordered this product on a Tuesday and it was delievered Friday of the same week.
Ginger Lead arrived promptly. Quality materials and workmanship. Our dog accepted it with no problem. Fits well, allows us to give our 8 year old arthritic Dane the support he needs to climb a ramp to get into our truck. He can relieve himself while wearing it with no problems. Would highly recommend. No cons that I can think of.
This product is wonderful. Customer service and shipping were great. This harness has helped our 170 lbs Great Dane get around much easier with his hip issues. Very quick and easy to use. Clipped to his front harness to make it even more convenient. Highly recommend this product.
Just bought gingerlead for a future surgery that my dog is having. the quality of the lead is really nice. its soft and fits perfectly on my boxer/ridgeback mix. we heard about this from a friend who used it as well and it helped his dog tremendously.
This is perfect for what we bought it for. Our old dog had an episode with his back quarters and really needed a little support getting up and down the porch steps. This item goes on easily, needs only one hand to support him, easily removable.
Our German Shepard Clyde is only a year old and was diagnosed with hip dysplasia. We had both hips done at the same time and the Gingerlead worked great for us. It's easy to use and machine washable. Thank You for making a great product!!!
This is an awesome company. The customer service is great and the product is great. I ordered the tall male for my 80 pound Gordon Setter male and it was perfect. The handle is at the right height for both of us.
I couldn't do without the Gingerlead for my dog after having a ruptured CCL and surgery. The sizing was perfect and was delivered super fast! I like the padded handles and material overall. Very well made. Thank you.
Our 11 year old German Shepherd has hip problems to the point he didn't want to get up. He has his good days and bad days. When he has a bad day we thank God we bought this sling.
