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 dog leash harness invention you have is super. Do you offer any other products for senior pets besides your dog leash?" [More]|

|"Before I purchased your dog leash I did not foresee Larry taking any long walks anytime soo, or short ones for that matter. Life has certainly changed for the two of us since I bought your dog leash a few months ago. I started Larry off on a small physical therapy schedule that I made up myself. We started walking around the backyard and within a few weeks I was able to get him to walk around the block - we are now up to about a half-mile. This dog harness has been wonderful for him and for me too - I lost seven pounds;-)" [More]|
