The Bottom's Up Leash is a quality, 100% nylon, supportive rear end dog harness (dog leash) designed to assist animals with broken bones, arthritis, hip dysplasia, or any other skeletal or muscular problems. It allows the animal to perform bodily functions (urinate and defecate) unencumbered, while being supported by a person who lifts a portion of the animal's weight at a 90-degree angle from the top of the back, in front of the tail area. It works by taking the animal's weight off its hind legs while you walk your dog from the rear. The leash price is USD $34.95, (plus shipping and sales tax where applicable).
Because the straps have a clearance in design off of the animal's back, the pressure is distributed under the center of its hind legs. This gives the most complete support of the rear hips and upper rear legs. By lifting slightly on the leash, the pet owner can control the amount of weight that is being placed on the animal's hind legs. The animal will still be going through the walking motion and will still be applying pressure on its legs, so the leash acts as an effective therapeutic device.
This leash is adjustable in size (one-size-fits-all) and has been used for dogs as heavy as 135 pounds and as small as Dachshund's and Lhasa Apso's.
The Sheepy Sleeves are soft, padded sleeves which fit over the leg loops on the leash to add to the overall comfort. The sleeves are washable and are made of 100% Neoprene. This leash will not chafe your dog!

I even showed it to the vet this morning and he was very impressed. Thanks again for this great invention. It really works wonders." [More]|

|"Although I'm not in need of your leash (yet), I feel I must commend you for creating a product that could be a godsend to many folks. My springer is starting to develop arthritis in his hips. I don't think we are ready for the leash at this time, but I will certainly bookmark your website so I can return to it in the future. Thanks for such a great idea." [More]|

|"I learned about your dog leash from a friend of mine. I bought one and it really helps me a lot. I was previously using a set of old bed sheets and that was extremely hurtful to my back. The dog leash harness invention you have is super. Do you offer any other products for senior pets besides your dog leash?" [More]|

|"Dr. Knight:I apologize for being so slow in getting this information to you. When I brought Jill in to see you recently, I told you about a marvelous leash that had made a tremendous difference to me in helping her up the stairs. Here is the website for information on this GREAT product: Http://www.bottomsupleash.com Their website says that they only sell directly to people and through veterinarians. I really urge you to stock this in your retail area and recommend it to your patients. It required only about three "tries" before Jill was comfortable in using this. And now, every night when I bring the leash to her, she wags her tail when she sees it, and is happy to get it on before going up the long flight of stairs to the 2nd floor to go to sleep by my bed. It's really the ONLY way I could get her upstairs any longer -- she is too big for me to carry. If a 14-year-old golden retreiver can adjust that quickly and be grateful for its help, it is surely a miracle product! It has given her confidence and solved a huge problem for me." [More]|
