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 Bottoms Up Leash has given my arthritic Chow a new lease on life. He was unable to go on walks since he could not go but a few steps without collapsing and falling down due to the pain. Now he is proudly walking and enjoying life again since he has the leash. (At first he was reluctant to try it...but after the first walk with it he is now ready to go when he sees the leash.) He has regained his confidence. What a wonderful invention. Thanks. I have told several people about it for their older dogs." [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]|

It works great and helps her alot! She is 13 and has arthritis in her spine and hips. This leash helps her walk alot further than she could before." [More]|

The slippery ice and snow was a nightmare for Cynthia and myslef, but now I have a great way to support her hind legs as she does her business. The hip dysplsia and arthritis have been horrible, but this harness has given her a much better life. Congrats on your dog leash product and on running a wonderful business for senior animals."

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]|
