    "Got the leash today - it is exactly what we've been looking for! Our german shepherd is recovering from back surgery to repair a ruptured disk, and is just now starting to put weight on his hind legs and walk with some support from us. The walkabout harness I purchased though it did the job was an absolute ordeal to get him in an out of (he's 115 lbs of semi-paralyzed dog at the moment) and it kind of hindered his ability to walk naturally. This harness is breeze to put on, and because there's not a lot of material wrapped around his body he can walk more naturally. I noticed this difference the first time I used it with Boomer -- it was the longest walk we were able to take since the surgery. Thanks!"
    Toni M. -- Pitman, NJ

    "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."
    Mary Zane Addy and Laura Clark -- Hampstead, MD

    "From the minute I received my leash, my 12 year old Wheaton Terrier Max, has been running. My dog has Degenerative Mylopathy. His back legs have slowly become paralyzed. I am 5'1", my dog weighs 47lbs, and I could not get him around. I tried every product on the market, I spent triple the money on products. My male dog hated All of them, and urinated on them each time. This leash has saved my arms and back and given Max, a "New leash on Life!" He is only limited by how fast I can go! It gives him freedom to be a dog! I am not constantly, washing the leash and he gets in and out of it in seconds. I truly, do not know what I would do , without it. I am so thankful I found this leash, and I am always reccommending it, to people who see us walking. All my vets have been amazed by this leash. I cannot say enough about it. Thank you!"
    Hope Morris -- Marina Del Rey, CA

    "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."

    Bottoms up leash by Debbie from Homer, Ak05/21/2013

    Good Idea except it didn't fit my large dog. It will need to be modified before I can use it, no way to get the straps on the dog without working his legs through it, when they can't stand on injured legs it is no help at all. It needs to clip on around legs for ease in use both for the dog and the owner. It might work well for smaller dogs that can be easily lifted and maneuvered but not on large breed.

    VERY helpful! by Suzi from Orange05/01/2013

    My dal suffers from a disc injury that has left him with limited mobility in his rear legs. With this harness we can once again enjoy taking walks together!

Thank you for many more memories with Bruce. The bottoms up leash you invented can give many dogs more time to spend with their families,and it worked first time,easy placement & he is proud again xxxooo toria THANK-YOU

    Lifesaver by CC and Mo05/04/2009

    Been using this 9 months. My baby has degenerative disc disease and we use this 5 days a week for our 1 - 1 1/2 mile walks at the bay. We've educated many people about how a dog's quality of life can be much improved. He will be 13 years old this Thurs. (May 7th). Thank you so much for allowing us more time with our boy. His acupuncture doctor agrees :) EXERCISE is the best medicine and he has been able to do that. PAWS to you!

    Not for stifle surgery patients by Copper's Mom09/04/2008

    Don't buy this if you need something to assist your dog after stifle (knee) surgery. This product might be good for dogs who need support walking, but it has not been of any use to us. Our vet recommended buying some type of harness for our 11 year old, 65 pound dog when he was going to have surgery on his second stifle. We discovered when we picked him up after the operation that the harness would rub the incision, so we couldn't use it at all when it was most needed during his healing process. $50 wasted. After he healed, our dog usually does fine walking but still has trouble getting up and with the many stairs in our house. Of course the harness is always somewhere else when he wants to get up or go up or down steps, so we improvise. He figured out how to go down on his own but is more confident if someone walks next to him grasping the built-in handle (aka tail). We don't put any tension on the tail but simply are ready to use it to keep him from falling. Going up, he walks his front up while we carry his rear. Our smart dog comes to get us to help when he wants to go up or down now. The harness was on him just once before the surgery to try it on and adjust it, but it's never been used since.

    You assured me that your leash would help my old Aussie, Ollie, to stand up, even though he walks on his own. You may not know that the leash can do this without actually being placed on the dog. Through some mystical enhancement the Bottoms Up leash causes Ollie to get up (or most of the way, anyhow) before I even get it on him!

    Just what I needed. by MarkW from Buffalo, New York04/07/2013

    This was just the product I needed for my 16 year old dog who just lost about 80% use of his back right leg to arthritis. I had made a crude but functional leash out of some workout bands and an old leash but this is just what the doctor ordered. I'm trying to keep him off of using a cart for as long as I can and this is just the thing to do it. With a little support from me he gets out to see his friends twice a day and then some. Thanks

    I can't imagine how either of us would survived without it! by Lisa07/31/2008

    My 10-year old Cardigan Welsh Corgi, Koa, suffered a herniated disc in January 2007. Even after surgery he hasn't fully regained the use of his back right leg. My back was killing me trying to bend down low enough to help him outside. I tried using a towel and other things but, being a male dog, he couldn't/wouldn't urinate using one of these items. This sling has been an amazing thing for both of us! Koa still doesn't have full use of his back right leg but with the aid of the sling he is able to get around and is rebuilding his muscles every day. I can't imagine how either of us would have survived without it!

    Thank you so much! by Sandy and Nitro07/31/2008

    Thank you for the promptness of this order and also for mine last month. My first order was put in on a Thurs eve and I had it by Sat afternoon. This order was put in late Mon nite and I had it Thur morn. I brought it right over to this girl at the coffee shop that we've become good friends with over the years. She was so happy to have it. She said she has to lift up her dog's butt with her hands to get him up her stairs. She doesn't have any where near as many stairs as I have but it still is wear and tear on her back. I told her how great my Nitro was doing up and down 2 flights of stairs and wanting to keep walking. I told her what a great product you have and she was interested. She used it Thur afternoon and evening, by Friday she said he was doing pretty good she said he even looked like he was proud and confident. I can't wait to talk to her Monday to see how it went over the weekend. I want to Thank you so much. I love my Nitro so much he is my "adopted son" I've had him since he was a 3 month (blk lab/shep/ border coll) pup. He's almost 16 yrs now and thanks to you and Bottom's Up Leash I can get him up and down the stairs longer. I kept praying for the lottery so I could buy a home for us so he wouldn't have to climb stairs, and I truly believe Nitro understands me and is waiting for that house. I felt that was my only option, and realistically that'll never happen but one can dream right? And when Nitro started getting worse and the arthritis was preventing him from getting up and down my stairs and watching him fall down a couple of stairs and even slip on the kitchen floor, and sometimes see him go to the bathroom on the floor, because he was afraid to go downstairs, to see him know he couldn't do what he used to and know how humiliated he must feel( I know it sounds nuts but I can see it in my boys eyes, I know what he's thinking and feeling) I was really getting myself sick, every time I took him outside I cried. He would bark to go out but he hesitated when he saw the stairs. Now he barks and he's very energetic (even just for a little while) he lets me put on the bottoms up leash and his lead leash and when I open the door he wants to run down right away. I am amazed. I have to try to keep up with him. You know what made me almost cry was the 2nd day that Nitro used the leash, he wanted to chase a squirrel? I told him you want to go get em? Let's go. And together we ran after a squirrel until (thank God) it ran up a tree. But to see Nitro's face light up and look with satisfaction that he scared a squirrel up a tree, it gave him his dignity back. I don't know what brought me to the computer or how I found your website, but I know it was nothing short of a miracle. I believe that your pal Watson is a little angel working miracles for people and dogs that have a very special bond. So again thank you!

    I bought this for our 10 yr old lab because he seemed to be dragging his hind legs. But I think he is not yet ready for us to support him. He prefers to drag himself up on his own steam as of now.

    Good product by Greg from Lancaster, PA.02/16/2012

    This product is sturdy and well made. The straps stay where they are adjusted to. My dogs front is still in good shape and with this he can still get around and go to the bathroom.

    WONDERFUL! by Martha H.07/31/2008

    I spoke to you Friday about our order for our Golden Retriever, Christy. Guess what? It arrived today. We have already used it on her, it is WONDERFUL! Thank you so much.

    not for large dogs by carl from pgh03/29/2013

    I purchased this leash for my St. Bernard, it says it fits ups to 125lb dog, this is not for xlarge dogs, need to carry more items for xlarge dogs with walking trouble

    Not true size by FoleysMom06/26/2013

    My dog is a 120 pound lab. This product claimed to be for large dogs and the advertising is very diceiving. It was too tight on my dogs hind legs and wasn't adjustable. Also because I opened it, I wasn't allowed to return it! Customer service is bad.

    Nice Idea Poorly Executed by Lance and Cromwell from Curry County, Oregon01/01/2013

    The idea of this was what I myself had kinda come up with in assessing my dog's worsening problem with controlling his rear legs. So I gave it a try. Immediate problem when I received it was one leg loop hung at least an inch lower than the other, a problem immediately evident when I found my dog being twisted to one side when he was being held up in the harness. A quick trip to my shop fixed that problem. The next issue is the loops at the rear do not stay in place and slip foreward up the side of the rear leg as my dog walks foreward. This immediately ends the harness's ability to comfortably support the dog. I believe it would be possible to fix this problem without compromising the dogs ability to do its business and I may, when time allows, jury-rig such a fix. In summary, the product was well made in terms of materials and stitching but not accurately assembled and overpriced for what it offers. Like many things one buys these days it seems like this product was not actually field tested to see if it would work. I believe a little further thought and creativity would have made this a good solution for our disabled canine companions.

    Old Friend Back by Jo Mast from Concord, NC01/15/2012

    Our wonderful 12 year old black Lab has a real problen walking. His hips are almost completely gone. All he wanted to do was lay around the house. To go outside my husband would have to carry him and then hold him up. He weighs 110 pounds so that was a starin on my husband as well as Rocky. Now when Rocky sees the bottom up leash he sits up and wants to go out. He walks outside and even tries to go up & down the steps. When he's outside he walks around and lets us know when he wants to come in. Thank you so much for giving us our best friend back.

    Do not pay extra for faster shipping by ramakrb12/23/2012

    Sorry, this review is not about the product, but about Entirely pets. I paid extra for faster shipping and these guys shipped it via regular first class mail and I got the product late. Will never buy anything from this company again.

    by from 03/29/2012

    Bottom's Up Leash did not include adquate instructions. Padding has to be velcroed around the harness. Velcro leaves edges that easily tangle on a dog with long hair. Padding should be sewn and installed on the harness prior to purchase eliminating the velcro.

    Excellent Walking Aid by Julie10/31/2011

    I purchased this product after using another walking harness sent home with my dog after back surgery. The other harness was difficult to put on and hindered his ability to go to the bathroom comfortably. The Bottom's Up Leash is easy to put on and lets my dog move comfortably while giving him support as needed.

    product is fine, Entirely Pets is not. by ~M12/01/2011

    The product it's self is just fine. However Entirely Pets completely dropped the ball on my order. I followed their instructions for overnight shipment (because my dog was having emergency knee surgery and I needed it to bring him home) and it failed to show up. I called, they couldn't explain it and told me now that it was Friday I would probably have it on Monday. They offered NOTHING to help me, couldn't locate a manager to assist me and then sent me a bogus email with a promise of Saturday delivery - the item arrived at 5pm on Monday and when I called to make sure that I wasn't charged for shipping they promised to have a supervisor call me back about it and one never did.

    Best Purchase by SBS from Indianapolis, IN08/07/2012

    My weimaraner was suffering from Cushings Disease and lost strength in his back legs. He was not able to go for long walks, which he loved dearly. The Bottom's Up Leash gave him back his long walks and assisted me in getting him up and mobile. My vet now has one on hand for their other patients. LOVE IT!!!!
