What is the Bottom's Up Leash?
The Bottom's Up Leash helps you help your dysplastic, arthritic, post-surgical, or otherwise disabled dog move more comfortably and safely. The leash works by supporting a portion of the dogs hind legs while they walk, or attempt to go up/down stairs. Unlike a towel under the belly, our product allows your dog to eliminate and keeps you from having to stoop over. For quick cleanup, remove only the padded neoprene sleeves and wash with soap and water.

|"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]|

|"Dr. Knight:I apologize for being so slow in getting this information to you. When I brought Jill in to see you recently, I told you about a marvelous leash that had made a tremendous difference to me in helping her up the stairs. Here is the website for information on this GREAT product: Http://www.bottomsupleash.com Their website says that they only sell directly to people and through veterinarians. I really urge you to stock this in your retail area and recommend it to your patients. It required only about three "tries" before Jill was comfortable in using this. And now, every night when I bring the leash to her, she wags her tail when she sees it, and is happy to get it on before going up the long flight of stairs to the 2nd floor to go to sleep by my bed. It's really the ONLY way I could get her upstairs any longer -- she is too big for me to carry. If a 14-year-old golden retreiver can adjust that quickly and be grateful for its help, it is surely a miracle product! It has given her confidence and solved a huge problem for me." [More]|

|"Thank you for contacting me. I used the leash because my lab had degenerative disc disease in her lower back. Unfortunately, it got worse and she had to be put to sleep in March. Your product definitely gave us several months that we would not have had otherwise. Thank you very much. A member of the bouvier list I belong to mentioned your product. I saved his reference because of the age of our Bouvier (13+) and can now use it. I did review other similar products but was attracted to "BottomsUpLeash" because: 1) it seats underneath the pelvis and not around the chest or waist and our dog (as I presume most other elderly dogs) needs hindquarter support, not otal body support, 2) ease of on/off, and 3) the cost is quite reasonable especially considering that realistically, our dog is in the twilight of her life."

|"I can't tell you what a difference the leash makes. I was finally able to get Cody in and out of the house by myself... without him urinating on me or himself. You guys have a really excellent product. My vet is using a canvas wood carrier that's been modified a bit. It isn't nearly as effective as the leash. Have you marketed this at trade shows? There is such a great demand out there and I'm surprised at how many people are unaware the leash exists. Anyway, thanks for all of your help. Cody is going for acupuncture tomorrow for his ruptured disc. He has regained feeling in his legs, but just can't support himself. We're hoping for the best. You guys are lifesavers." [More]|
