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!
|"Just wanted to let you know how pleased we are with our leash. We are able to take our dog, whom we may soon lose to cancer, on walks, which wouldn't be possible without the support we can give him with the leash. We are so pleased to be able to help him enjoy what may be his last days. We used the leash on a visit to our dog's surgeon. The vet was impressed with the leash's design and asked us to bring her ordering information so that she could pass it on to her other clients. She thought the leash was a great idea, and said that she much prefers supporting the dog at the hind legs rather than under the belly (the way we used to support our dog with a rolled-up towel). Thanks so much!" [More]|

|"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'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]|

|"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]|

|"My nine year old German Shepard was a perfect picture of health last summer, romping around like a puppy. As soon as the cold whether hit it seemed like over night he was having a hard time getting up and walking. He's was like a totally different dog. He totally staggered when he walked and totally lost his appetite. Our vet told us it was his arthritis. I bought one of you dog harnesses and now my husband and I are able to get him up and down the stairs of our three level townhome. Your leash has been a huge help. The three of us thank you for this invention!" [More]|
