Fully retractable dog training leash that works like a bitless horse bridle. More control, less effort. And smaller than other retractables.
KOOL HANDLIN IS A 1.2 METRE RETRACTABLE TRAINING LEASH THAT RETHINKS THE WAY YOU CONTROL AND TRAIN YOUR DOG… NO MATTER WHAT SIZE IT IS.
Unlike a Halti harness that goes around a dog’s shoulders and chest, and with which you then clip a leash to a ring on the chest strap, we’ve designed the Kool Handlin leash to work much the way a bitless bridle works on a horse.
There’s a loop of ultra-strong nylon webbing that you twist into a figure of eight (infinity loop). You place this over your dog’s nose and round beneath its ears, and pass the straps back through a clip that pushes onto your dog’s own collar. And that’s it.
You have complete control. Just wearing the Kool Handlin leash can actually calm your dog… and it gives you touch-sensitive handling for left or right, sit, lie down and other commands.
HOW IT’S MADE AND HOW YOU CAN HELP
Kool Handlin is still work in progress.
We’ve got an ultra strong, 1.2 metre reach, nylon webbing loop. We’ve got industrial quality chromed steel and polypropylene fittings. We’ve got a high quality, injection moulded alloy housing. We’ve got a high quality, nickel-steel retractor spring.
And we’ve designed the retractor mechanism so that, whatever happens, Kool Handlin doesn’t put the load of a pulling dog onto the spring! It puts it onto a ratchet brake (just like a retractable car seat belt.) This means we don’t need nearly as big a spring, or nearly as large (or heavy) a casing as ordinary retractor leashes.
