Rear Support Leash for Dogs | Dog Walking Aid - Handicapped Pets

Harnesses and slings are two types of common dog mobility devices that are often solid solutions for dogs that have trouble standing or that tire easily but have not yet lost all their mobility. These dog-walking aids often strap on around the hind legs and come with a leash that owners can gently lift in order to help the dog stand up; these are sometimes referred to as "rear support leashes". Harnesses and slings also come in models that fit around a dog's middle or its front legs, depending on where the dog needs the help. These harnesses are great aids for pet mobility and allow the dog to get the exercise he or she needs.

Specially designed hind leg harness to helps dogs with weak hind legs walk or post operation support with better leash control.

Sometimes dogs have trouble walking or going up and down stairs because their hind legs are weak. We carry the GingerLead dog support and rehabilitation harness to help veterinarians and dog owners effectively assist dogs with weak hind legs.

Bottom's Up Leash. Hhind-leg support harness for dogs with hip dysplasia, arthritis, or any other problem that affects the hind legs or spine. Your pet must be able to walk strongly on its front legs, with its back held in a level position. Use the “towel test” to determine whether or not the above is possible. If you have a small dog or cat we suggest you take an old towel, cut two holes in it, and place the legs through the holes. Remembering to keep the back level, see if your pet will walk normally. This action simulates our cart support system. If you have a large dog, a towel under each hind leg is an easier way to do the “towel test”.

I often hear the remark that “I don’t want to put my dog in a cart while he/she is still able to use the hind legs because placing them in a cart will cause them not to walk and use their legs.” The exact opposite is true and we know this from helping pets with dog wheelchairs for 50 years and having our own veterinary hospital. Pets never become dependent on carts and use of a cart will keep the hind legs stronger until eventually they do weaken with their disease. If you wait too long before getting your pet a K9 Cart and allow a dog to get to the stage that it is only able to take a step or two without falling, then by that time they have placed undue stress on their front legs and you would have to go to a supportive cart for the front legs. The extra supportive carts (and parts can be added onto our 2 wheeled carts) give excellent support, but the front wheels are caster wheels and therefore not as maneuverable as the standard 2 wheeled cart. Therefore, why wait to purchase a cart when it can be running around and going for walks before it gets to the stage that it can barely walk and all the fun has gone out of its life- no more walks or playing with its friends, etc.
