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]|

|"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 received the leash on Saturday (thanks for the superfast shipping)----it is awesome. We moved into a new house with stairs last Monday and my poor border collie Elijah could not get in and out without struggling with the old towel-under-the-belly." Your leash makes it SO much easier for both of us! I now am not afraid of losing my grip on those towel ends and Elijah is much more supported under his rear where he needs it. Thank you so much, from me AND Elijah!" [More]|

|"The product itself is terrific. I have been despairing that my old dog would never go for a walk again since he couldnt get up the stairs. I found the bottomsup leash on the internet and ordered it and it worked fantastically. It arrived in the mail almost instantly. Overall, a first rate experience." [More]|
