Senior & Disabled Dog Sling Testimonials

“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!” *  *  * “I am a Registered Vet Tech who recently purchased one of your harnesses for our own dogs and we love it! We have a 13 year old Golden with spinal stenosis/hind end weakness; a 10 year old Golden who had an FHO on one leg and the other is hanging on by a thread; and an 8 year old three legged Wheaton mix, who's only back leg gives out from time to time now. We have definitely put this harness to good use! I recommend your harness at least once a week. I truly believe you have an excellent product-also because I have a bad back and your harness is much easier on it.”  Karen Wake Forest, NC *  *  * “Lady, our 15-year-old German Shepherd has advancing arthritis which is severely affecting her hips. The four steps out the back door to her kennel have been treacherous for both her and my wife and I as we tried to support her weight to prevent the inevitable stumble and fall. Even with us holding her harness she had a number of bad experiences and was obviously becoming afraid of the steps. We just received our Ginger Lead and had it adjusted within a couple of minutes. We put the Ginger Lead on Lady and walked her around the house for a few minutes to get her and us used to it and to fine tune the adjustments. The first time down the steps Lady wasn't sure just what was going on but made it outside without stumbling. I felt much more secure for both her and myself as I had total control of her bodyweight with the Ginger Lead clipped to her harness. On the way back into the house I took just part of her weight with the Ginger Lead and Lady climbed the steps like a champ. That was this morning. Just a bit ago I picked up the Ginger Lead and asked Lady if it was time to go outside. She became excited as she usually does when she sees her leash and stood pacing in place as I put the Ginger Lead on her. She went up and down the steps as if she had been using the Ginger Lead her whole life. My wife and I had been dreading this winter and didn't know how we were going to get Lady in and out for her daily business, much less for any exercise. With the Ginger Lead we are much more confident that Lady will get her needs met with much greater safety which will improve her quality of life and hopefully keep her injury free. Your product is far superior to any similar products we found on the market. I'm impressed with the quality and design. Your customer service and shipping was top notch. Even though it was one of the more expensive units we found, I think it was worth every penny and will be recommending it to everyone with a dog in need of some extra support.” David Ada, MN * * * “Just wanted to let you know that Bruno's GingerLead is coming in VERY handy! He insists on going up the stairs at night to sleep with our family, and downstairs in the morning, but he waits patiently for his GingerLead. Of course we use it all the time, and Bruno seems very comfortable with it. He now WANTS to go out for a walk rather than laying around the house - he's on the go again! The GingerLead has really added to Bruno's quality of life. I can't wait to show our Vets this great product!” Elaine Williamstown, NJ * * * “Just wanted to let you know I was able to pick up the Ginger Lead at Greenwood Village Vet clinic with no trouble. I tried the Ginger Lead on our 12 year old male golden retriever as soon as I got home. I expected serious resistance, but Baron had no issues at all - he saw it as just another leash and was excited to put it on. We practiced up & down the stairs a few times and it works great!! It only took us one or two times to get the hang of it. Baron weighs 94 lbs & his mobility is not what it used to be. I was concerned our two story house was getting to be too much for him. I'm so happy I ordered Ginger Lead! I can easily assist him both up and down the stairs now! It has provided confidence & security for everyone! Thank you so much!!!” JoAnn Aurora, CO * * * “All I can say is thank you! This did exactly what I needed it to do! Chance can now go outside and do his business without losing his balance and falling. It's great for coming up the few steps he needs to climb. He's a BIG boy and it is great to help him without causing me difficulty. He doesn't mind wearing it because now he knows it helps. Thanks again for such a wonderful product. I would highly recommend this to any pet that is having difficulty walking or balancing. Chance is walking much further now without tiring as easily. With sincere gratitude!” Gayle Fayetteville, WV * * * “Topi is a 17 year old Dachshund with a history of luxations of both her right knee and hip sequentially.  Her current diagnosis is idiopathic hind weakness and she is given a variety of prescriptions/supplements and acupuncture for discomfort. About 8 months ago Topi's owner contacted me after she was unable to stand on her own to ask about my thoughts on dog wheelchairs.  I told her that if she was going to go that route that it was important to make sure the cart would be custom fit for Topi.  (At that time Topi although elderly was still active and engaged).   My client/friend decided to try one of the inexpensive carts that would be fit to Topi's basic measurements which was still pretty pricey. I begged her to instead try one of the GingerLeads that I had in stock for my comfort care business.  The harness when used appropriately allowed Topi the freedom to wander the yard a bit and do her business on her own without tipping over.  Topi only needed a bit of assistance and only for a couple of weeks.  Within a few weeks whatever had caused Topi to go down had resolved and she was back to walking and doing potty on her own.   Now Topi is again weakened by age and a progressive immune disorder. She is still engaging and can wobble on her own but on some days GingerLead lends a hand.  Topi is not long for this world but I believe that the harness vs a cart gave her the independence and kept her legs strong for this past year of quality life.” Veronica McCullion  CVT Naples, Florida * * * “We received the GingerLead on Friday. Thank you very, very much for the superb delivery. Taylor, our 10-year old Chocolate Lab has adapted extremely well to using and expecting it as a part of her harness configuration to her healing process.   Last Sunday she was completely paralyzed by an FCE, Fibrocartilaginous Embolism. A week later she is definitely en route to a slow but excellent recovery. Using the GingerLead with her chest harness we are able to provide her the support that allows her to realize that she can use her limbs again. We, our friends and neighbors are completely amazed. She has learned that the “contraption” is to her benefit and has adapted to depending upon it for the support and the facility it offers to help her to regain her strength.    Thank you, thank you very much.” Jim Tampa, FL * * * “I purchased your GingerLead back in January. Sadly, we had to make the most difficult of decisions to say goodbye to our dear beagle last week, but your product allowed her to live her last days with dignity and comfort. I could tell that she found solace in the lead because when I would bring it out she would perk up as if she knew that this meant that she could stand, and romp, even if for a few minutes. Thank you for giving this comfort to our beagle, and to so many of our canine companions. I'm attaching a picture of our beagle so that you know the sweet girl that your product helped so much.” Christine Greensburg, PA * * * “I purchased a Ginger Lead last September for my dog, Ricky, who had broken his leg. He was diagnosed with bone cancer and was expected to live three to five months. By Christmas, the cancer was gone and the bone healed, but we continued to use the Ginger Lead to prevent him from falling and perhaps breaking another bone. We believe the Ginger Lead has saved his life. On July 30, the vet told us the bone cancer is back. Ricky is doing very well and we continue to use the Ginger Lead to get him in and out of the house and walk him around the yard. We believe the Ginger Lead will help Ricky from breaking another bone. Thank you for a great product” Jeanine * * * “I bought the medium/large GingerLead for my dog Toby. I sent you a photo and you told me it was too large. So I bought the small GingerLead in early July. It fit him perfect and helped me for a few days, but we were still trying to get use to it out front. After the fourth day, I took Toby to Shasta Dam where it's very peaceful. There's lawn, trees, lots of shade, and the deer graze on the grass. I'd taken Toby there many times, but we hadn't gone anywhere for a long time because he couldn't walk but a few feet and then fall. I used the GingerLead and we were able to walk to an area of the grass by the Dam on the lake side. It was so peaceful. Toby looked like he was just loving being able to be back there again. He looked the best I'd seen him for a long time. The next day my little Buddy died. It was July 19th. Evidently, his heart was failing. He was sixteen. And his failing heart was making it even harder for him to walk with his hip dysplasia. We didn't get to use your GingerLead much, but it helped in those last few days. Needless to say, I am broken hearted. Thank you so much for making his last day at the dam possible, and the day before he died the best day he'd had for several weeks. You have no idea how much taking Toby to the dam meant to both of us. I am very, very grateful for that GingerLead just for that one day. I had hoped to have more days with the GingerLead, but there was only the one. And what a day it was! The words thankful and grateful don't even come close to how I feel. The GingerLead is an incredible harness. I loved using it that day which gave Toby the chance to experience the peace that is there at Shasta Dam, and I'm sure ... that peace helped him make his transition. There are no words for that.” Steve Redding, CA * * * “I don’t normally do reviews but wanted to say thank you and share Nala’s story. If it was not for your product my Sweet Golden Nala would not be here today. Nala is 9 years old and will be 10 in October. She was diagnosed with a high grade mast cell tumor and was given 2 to 4 months to live. Once we learned of the news, I immediately started Nala on Chemo. She did a total of 10 treatments, consisting of one treatment every 2 weeks. During her treatment she tore her ACL and was unable to walk. The injury was so bad that we had to carry her to the grass for the first two weeks to go to the bathroom. After doing hours of research, I came across your product. Because of the Ginger Lead I was able to slowly increase Nala’s strength and assist her when fatigued. Nala is now able to go for 15 minute walks and is getting better every day! Thank you for a great product and thank you for helping my sweet baby girl!” Alexia * * * “I received the harness and it works absolutely great. My black lab Kasey suffered a Spinal Stroke, leaving her back leg paralyzed. The harness is a life saver as Kasey weighs 100 lbs and the beach towel trick wasn't working. Thank you very much for sending this life saver in such a speedy manner. I will spread the word that this product actually lives up to the advertisement. Kasey is already showing signs of improvement....thank God.” Judy Levittown, PA * * * “THANK YOU!!!!  I received our Gingerlead last night and it works. We are in a 40 foot RV for the summer and our 18 year old dog feared falling down the RV steps. You could see the fear in his eyes as his back legs "caved" in on him trying to go down the steps. It broke our hearts. We even considered going back to our house for the rest of the summer. When we used the harness, one could see the relief in his eyes.  Again, thank you.” Bill Emery, SD * * * “Just wanted to say thank you very much for the fast shipping and great product. My 100lb dog had a stroke and lost the use of her hind legs. A search at the local pet product chains for this kind of harness/aid was useless. Item was received in one day, in California. Made moving Penny around much easier.” Alfred Encino, CA

Just what I needed for Jake after his spinal surgery. We were given a support harness by the vet but it had short handles which was back-breaking for me and it didn't have a lead. The GingerLead is EXCELLENT!! And shipping took only 2 days!
