Keep On Walking…
While working with and owning dogs over the years, I’ve seen firsthand how hip dysplasia, arthritis, and injury can seriously compromise a dog’s ability to walk or even stand up.
These situations present difficult decisions for the dog’s family. Often surgery is helpful, but the rehabilitation process can be challenging – especially for older folks with their own aching joints and backs. In other cases, little can be done to stop the natural progression of disease and aging on a dog’s joints and bones. And, yet, the dog remains a vital, deeply loved member of the family. Sadly, in the past, dogs with these conditions were often put down because there wasn’t a good way to rehabilitate them back to a healthy, active life.
GingerLead: A Better Way
New technology – and lots of ingenuity – has changed that. Today there are many dog harnesses and dog slings designed to help rehabilitate dogs and keep them active after injury or surgery, or as they deal with degenerating joints in their golden years.
We highly recommend the GingerLead dog harness because it’s effective, comfortable for your pup, and easy to use. The GingerLead combines a durable outer fabric with a soft, corduroy liner in a sturdy dog sling that wraps around your dog’s belly to provide full support for his hips and back legs. The integrated handle and leash on the top of the GingerLead lets you control and support your dog with just one hand. That makes it easy on your back and legs too!

- hip dysplasia
