If you’ve ever found yourself holding a leash with two hands, it’s probably because your dog was excited and started pulling. This can cause unwanted strain on the body. It is common for people with larger and stronger breeds to seek out products that provide fast relief from the demands of handling a pulling dog. While most products aim to eliminate the pulling behavior using negative reinforcement, the Ergo Leash provides support while preserving a dog’s desire to pull. You may be wondering, why? Why not just eliminate pulling altogether? To answer this question, we have to dive into the heart behind the brand.

Ordered my ergo leashes. We rescue Great Danes. They frequently come from bad situations where they have never been on a leash before. Their size makes them hard to handle when walking. I was able to walk my 100lb most recent rescue, Lana...I felt in control and after a while, she quit pulling so much. Thank you for such a badly needed product.Mindy C.
The level of control I have now is ridiculous. Thank you for creating an accesory that not only improves my life, but my Big Baby's as well.Briane L.
In 2018, I was caring for my expecting wife and overwhelmed with work. My young pups Braunse (left) and Journee (right) were getting the last of my energy. When I found time to take them for walks they would pull in excitement, which was very uncomfortable and led to short, hurried walks. The problem was that these short walks weren’t draining their pent-up energy or giving them the exercise they needed. I knew there had to be a way to satisfy the needs of my dogs without compromising my own.
One night after work, I took Braunse for a walk. I was tired and he wasn’t. He was pulling excitedly, which caused me to wind the leash around my hand in an attempt to gain some more control. The more Braunse pulled, the tighter the leash became around my hand. In an effort to gain some relief, I threaded my flashlight through the handle of the leash. This enabled me to walk Braunse with both hands instead of one, and leverage my weight against his pull force. Not only did I feel instant relief, my pup felt more resistance, allowing him to get a sufficient workout! I excitedly walked the next pup with my makeshift handle bar. After, my dogs were happily exhausted and I didn’t feel the usual physical strain. That night the Ergo Leash was birthed and has grown into the brand we proudly know as Ergo Dog. Welcome to the family.
