Hi, all! Today I'm doing a review for Pet Wise Products, makers of the No Tangle Leash, Stop Dogs Jumping Shield (more on this later...) and no pull harness and leash, as well as traditional snap leashes, slip leads, traffic leashes, couplers and rope choke and martingale collars. They're also on Etsy, and you can find them here.
A bit about the company:
I've worked in rescue for my entire life. Currently, I volunteer with a rescue, that operates entirely through a foster network. We get dogs that often have never seen the inside of a home. We do our best to get the dogs into permanent homes as quickly as possible, so that more dogs make it out of the gassing facilities the rescue pulls from. My training aid, "Down Rover" was created after my exhausting every possible method of teaching a very intelligent, and otherwise extremely well trained dog, that simply would not stop jumping. "Down Rover" has worked for us on every type of dog, for the past two years. It's no secret that people don't need much of an excuse to surrender a dog (or cat), and don't need much of a reason to return a dog they adopt, or pass by a shelter dog, in favor of a store bought puppy (future shelter dogs when they don't train them). So, my quest, is to help more dogs be adoptable, and to help those that do get a home, to stay in them. "Down Rover" is an incredible aid, that gives owners the ability to correct a behavior that can be not only frustrating and annoying, but dangerous to small children and elderly people. Home Stop Dogs Jumping No Tangle Leash No Pull Harness & Leash Traditional Dog Leashes Contact Us About Us The Inspiration for "Let's Go Rover" Tangle Free Leash came from my Bloodhound cross, "Emma", whose nose is always to the ground. Every time she put her head down, she was constantly stepping over her leash and getting it tangled between her legs. Along with Emma, I usually have 1 or 2 other dogs walking at the same time. If one wasn't tangled, it would be, by the time I untangled the 1st one. Frustrating for dogs, and humans alike, I tried a variety of methods before finding the solution. If you are tired of the tangles, treat yourself to a "Let's Go Rover" tangle free leash
Their snap and slip leashes come in both a 5ft and a 6ft length, and their traffic leashes come in 12", 18" and 24", as do their couplers. Colors available:
- Royal Blue
- Navy Blue
- Bubble Gum Pink
- Lime Green
- Hunter Green
I picked the traditional snap lead, 6ft, in lime green to review, and I really like it! Dachshund Mommy: Unlike most rope leashes I've seen, this leash is very soft on the hands. We have another rope leash, and while I love the color, if Nola was a puller I wouldn't be able to use it as it is so harsh on the skin. Which is a shame, because I love rope leashes almost as much as leather ones.

Very soft and easy on the hands
Lots of colors
Lightweight but sturdy
Lots of options for color and size
Good customer service
The no tangle leash is a neat idea
Made in the USA
The loop/handle is pretty big, and since Mom has bony, skinny wrists it didn't sit comfortably on her. She wound up looping the leash through the handle then clipping it to me, so it couldn't slid off
DM: I am not a fan of the fact they sell choke collars. If you've followed me for awhile, you'll know I do not advocate or except such methods.
DM: I wasn't a fan of the No Jumping Shield; while not outwardly harmful, it doesn't mesh with my Positive Reinforcement/Negative Punishment only method.
Overall, I give Pet Wise Products 4 out of 5 stars (1 stars off for the training methods we don't approve of) and 1 1/2 paws up. Head on over, and tell em Nola sent ya!
