Lead Mate made gripping Mingus and Dottie’s leashes much more comfortable than wrapping the leash around my fingers and hand, which is my usual habit. I always felt like I had good, firm control of the leash while using Lead Mate, and its grip seemed equally effective on both leather and rope leashes.
Lately I’ve been struggling with carpal tunnel syndrome (ugh), and Lead Mate’s ergonomic design has made holding the leash SO much easier and more comfortable for me.

I have rheumatoid arthritis which has affected my hands and I have a poor grip. I use the Lead Mate every day, it's a simple but effective idea. It is comfortable and easy to grip and gives me more control than resorting to wrapping the lead around my hand and much less painful

One of my dogs is a 65 kg cross Rottweiler, size of a Great Dane! Very strong dog, who loves to track. I have lost a good deal of grip in my hands, cannot make a fist, so leads have been slipping in my hands and a few times he managed to get away.
With the Lead Mate I have great grip on the lead, the Lead Mate fits in my hand comfortably and most importantly doesn't slip at all. When I wash the leads and take it off, it unscrews easily and screws back just as easily. Very pleased with this new product, and would recommend this to all

A friend bought me this to help with my arthritis and I must say it has literally changed my life! I use it daily and am able to easily and confidently walk my dog, where before it was a painful struggle. The shape fits snuggly in your hand and even though it is made of hard plastic, it feels completely natural and comfortable. Thank you!

With a headstrong dog like our hound, Emily, we were beyond frustrated with her lunging. After a number of tries with other tools.
Lead Mate saved us! We are thrilled with how much easier Emily is to handle now that we have it.
It saves both us and her because it gives us control and it teaches her who is in control! A simple, useful tool great for all pet parents, pet sitters, and dog walkers, everywhere!”

My original reaction was “It’s a gimmick” and then I tried it out. Loved it, The Lead-Mate gave me a natural position to work with the dog and an easy grip to provide the communication I required to the dog. ‘Brilliant' my thoughts changed to.
What convinced me more of its success was the comments from my clients who all remarked how easy it made lead work for them. When clients like it and it helps them achieve success then I like it. I would recommend Lead-Mate to all professionals and dog owners
