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!

|"My veterinarian recommended using towels (or sheets) to support my dogs weight. My dog has severe hip dysplasia and cannot support his own weight. The towel/sheet solution was not nearly as effective as your dog leash. I showed your dog harness to my vet and now they are planning on buying them for their practice. I am telling everyone about your invention" [More]|

|"We are sending some photos as promised of our beloved Shepard Cody. We just returned from a few days on Cape Cod and took some recent photos of Cody wearing your "Bottom's Up Leash." We are so grateful to you for coming to our rescue - we find the vets here have not been helpful - they say there's nothing that could be done with his illness. Cody is a 13 years old and has so much personality and spunk. We are so sorry that you lost your dog - but it must be gratifying to help others. Your positive attitude is wonderful and has given us so much hope. We're getting used to the Bottom's Up Leash now and find it works best for us to hold it close to the body where we have more control. So, once again, thank you from the bottom's of our hearts."
