The Perfect Leash and The Perfect Collar

Walking a dog on a leash puts stress and tension on our hand, arm and body and the dog’s neck and back, resulting in injuries to ourselves and our pets. Most dog leashes carry bacteria and mold because of their material components.

The Perfect Leash is an innovative patented design made of a proprietary polyurethane material. The leash stretches, reducing the shock and tension to a dog’s neck and back and the handler’s body. The unique rebounding properties provide a correction to a pulling or unruly dog without the handler pulling or tugging on the leash. Leash training dogs is now much gentler on the handler. At the end of the day simply wash away any bacteria by using soap and water or a mild household chemical. The Perfect Leash is a better and healthier way to walk a dog.

The Perfect Leash, like so many innovations, was born out of necessity. Deb Dersham was not happy with the leashes available to work her bird dogs on her 300 acre farm. The leashes were the wrong length, they ripped or frayed easily, they got soaking wet and dirty, and quickly became smelly. Wrapping the rough nylon around her hand made Dersham uncomfortable and sometimes left red marks. Meanwhile, Dersham and her husband were looking for a durable polyurethane material for another outdoor product application. The search for a material that met their demanding specifications married with a search for a well designed leash.

That was in 2003. Since then, the Dershams have continually refined and improved the products design. They have tested the leash on their own dogs, and consulted with industry experts. To their delight, The Perfect Leash was very well received by wholesalers and distributors, professional dog walkers and trainers, and dog lovers.

Testimonials about The Perfect Leash and The Perfect Collar

Anne Hennessy

Excerpts from a letter to Deb Dersham, the creator of The Perfect Leash …"As I explained to you, I have been training dogs for over a decade and specialize in the larger breed training….My two Rotts pull horribly on a leash…I took both my dogs out on your leashes without their gentle leaders. Fearing the worst with my recent shoulder injury, I prepared myself to let go of the leash if needed in the event they pulled too much. I was so amazed at the self correcting design of these leashes. My dogs began to pull, and the “give & return” of the material corrected them without any instruction/correction from me, and I did not have to drop either leash. The energy absorption is truly magnificent, and I will certainly recommend these leashes to all of my clients, especially those that have the “problem” dogs. The fact that these can be sanitized so easy is so important to my wife and I due to the nature of our business."
Steve Ferry, Dog Trainer and Dr. Rachel Parks, DVM
