EzyDog Zero shock leashTorrey used to be a bad puller when we walked, but now that she is older and wiser, she’s much better, Mostly. we still have moments when she is sure she can get there before everyone else, even on a leash. This can wear my arm out. So when the EzyDog company contacted us about trying out their Zero Shock leash, I said absolutely! We took it for a walk the other day to test it out. We went up a dirt road that we like a lot because it’s up hill, and the dogs can run off leash. This same area is near a place were people can go and target shoot. Now it’s not THAT close, but Torrey can hear a gun shot 10 miles away, and she is not a fan. As we were coming back down the hill we heard a couple of shots, pretty far away, but still. Torrey’s first thought was, “I better get to the truck as fast as I can.” I however, didn’t want to run full blast down a dirt road, and neither did Roxy. So I clipped her to the new leash. She was still trying to get back ASAP, but the shock absorber in the leash kept my arm from being pulled off.
I was amazed at the difference with the Zero shock leash. I thought that once Torrey got to the end of the shock absorber part, it would be the same as any other leash. But it isn’t. Think shock absorbers on your car. As we walked, the leash would give and stretch and I didn’t notice the pulling much at all. It was way easier on my arm than trying to hold her back. The handle is lined with neoprene which made it very comfortable to hold.
There is also a nice heavy duty plastic ring if you wanted to hang a poop bag holder or something. I got the 48″ leash. They also offer a 25″. I’m glad I got the longer one. I don’t need Torrey to walk right next to me. She is usually a little ahead and has a loose leash. So the 48″ is perfect. We have used the Zero Shock leash a few times and I really like it, whether she is pulling or not.
Be sure to check out EzyDog’s website, they have a whole line of products that are awesome. They are definitely geared for the outdoor dog world.
