How the Satori NoPull Leash™ Came About
Hi, my name is Russ, one of the founders of Satori Pets. Do you have a dog that likes to pull or lunge when on a leash?
Last year my sister got a very cute little rescue puppy that a DNA test showed was a Chocolate Labrador Retriever and Bulldog mix.
That cute bouncy puppy quickly grew to an 85 pound bundle of energy in a year.
My sister was doing physical therapy for knee pain so could no longer really walk Cooper and couldn't risk getting re-injured.
One day I took Cooper to the dog park for some fun. At one point he wanted to catch up with my other dog and excitedly dragged me across the play area on his normal leash - he barley know that I was still on the other end of his leash.
After screaming and shouting with outstretched arms I remembered a dog training "check cord" that I had learned about many years ago.
I thought, "I need that check cord for Cooper!".
Couldn't Find a No Pull Leash Anywhere
That old fashioned check cord I was thinking of was made of very stiff rope and would not have been useful.
I searched online and in pet stores and could not find any type of leash that was similar or even close to what I was looking for.
Neither my sister nor I wanted to try the prong collars nor the chest or side clip harnesses.
So I did more research and decided to create a much modified and updated version of that old check cord design.
I settled on a flat rope material that was one inch wide, durable but a little stretchy, soft and flexible.
I experimented making a few iterations and some trial and error.
Finally with a design I really liked, I tried out the new leash on Cooper - and the result was nothing short of amazing.
One Finger Control of the Dog
I was happily surprised. After a minute getting used to the new leash - I instantly had "one finger" control of Cooper and was able to prevent him from pulling and lunging during our walk.
I was ecstatic! Not for me - but because my sister could now safely take Cooper on walks again.
A New Leash Was Created
I posted some photos and video of Cooper on the new leash for my friends and family to see and twenty people immediately replied and wanted the leash for their dog.
So I went to work modifying and improving the leash and sending it out to friends and family to try it out.
20 Friends Instantly Wanted One of these Leashes
The comments and reviews were incredible. I had no idea so many people with larger dogs wanted a simple but super effective leash to prevent their dogs from pulling and lunging at people, other dogs or animals.
Satori Pets Is Born
I along with my partner created Satori Pets to manage the waiting list of everyone interested in the NoPull leash for their dog.
We had no idea so many people were experiencing the same problem - they wanted to be able to safely control their larger dog on a leash.
Satori Pets also allowed us to keep everyone informed of the progress of making the leashes and to give information and tips and how to use it effectively.
