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]|

|"Our 12 year old Sheepdog, Teddie, has a completely new lease on life thanks to the Bottoms Up Leash! It has been a tremendous help since we started using it about a month ago and has completely changed her outlook to walks and stairs. We are very thankful for a product that so obviously enhances her "golden years". Thank you!" [More]|

|"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'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner...We took our little Bailey home from the Hospital 3 days before Thanksgiving. A week after he had back surgery...Well, I can't say enough about what a wonderfully terrific product this is...I was so worried about how we would walk him because he couldn't stand at all with little feeling in his legs and back. The minute we got him home, we put the leash on him and it was such a relief to us that we were able to support his back properly. He is on the mend now thanks to the Bottoms Up Leash. Thanks again for getting it to me so quickly." [More]|
