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!

The slippery ice and snow was a nightmare for Cynthia and myslef, but now I have a great way to support her hind legs as she does her business. The hip dysplsia and arthritis have been horrible, but this harness has given her a much better life. Congrats on your dog leash product and on running a wonderful business for senior animals."

|"Thank you for contacting me. I used the leash because my lab had degenerative disc disease in her lower back. Unfortunately, it got worse and she had to be put to sleep in March. Your product definitely gave us several months that we would not have had otherwise. Thank you very much. A member of the bouvier list I belong to mentioned your product. I saved his reference because of the age of our Bouvier (13+) and can now use it. I did review other similar products but was attracted to "BottomsUpLeash" because: 1) it seats underneath the pelvis and not around the chest or waist and our dog (as I presume most other elderly dogs) needs hindquarter support, not otal body support, 2) ease of on/off, and 3) the cost is quite reasonable especially considering that realistically, our dog is in the twilight of her life."
