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!
|"We purchased a bottoms-up leash through Watson' Senior Pet Products for our 14 year old greyhound. She was having trouble with stairs and we needed something to help her immediately. We couldnt find any pet stores in Massachusetts or New Hampshire that carried any harness of any kind. We found the bottoms-up leash on-line through Amazon.com. It was exactly what we needed and it has helped us immensely. Now we can walk up and down a flight of stairs without any fear of falling. Purchasing on-line was very easy and the shipping options, especially overnight shipping, really saved the day. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you." [More]|

I am taking your dog harness to the local adoption center to let them know about yourproduct. They are all dog lovers like me and I know this will be ofsome help to them." [More]|
