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!
|"I just want to say the leash finally arrived on Wednesday last week, after touring around America, Canada and England. I want to thank you for your quick response in sending the leash, it is really marvellous and I am able to take my dog for a walk again, which he really enjoys, I just can't let him go yet, he is so alert up front, it would be easier if he was in pain or not all there, but he is and I feel it would be such a shame to have him put to sleep, he is my very best friend and I love him to bits. So thank you once again for all your help" [More]|

|"I really dont know what I would do without this leash! I have a hundred pound German shepard and it has been hard to get him around. I use the leash to get him up the stairs on the deck. Without it he really wouldnt be able to walk. He can only take a few steps. This way he gets the movement he needs. Many thanks to the creator of the bottoms up leash!" [More]|
