Lead Mate

Holding back an excited dog — especially a larger one — usually entails grabbing and wrapping part of the leash around your hand or clutching at its collar, an annoyance either way to say the least. Lead Mate makes dog walking easier by attaching anywhere along your dog’s leash in seconds by simply screwing on. Once attached, Lead Mate won’t budge: in fact, it’s solid enough to support hundreds of pounds without moving and boasts an ergonomic shape that makes holding your best friend back a breeze, even when faced with cats or squirrels. It’s also made of a recycled material-based thermoplastic and weighs little, meaning it won’t swing around like a similarly sized knot in the leash would.
