A WORKING DOG TEAM'S DREAM: The Mia was created in collaboration with a dynamo working dog duo, Masha and Mia! Masha dreamed of a versatile, durable, and lightweight tool with a soft texture to promote better communication. And because handlers are touching the leash for so long every day, as well as using it for grounding, she needed the leash to be thin and flexible. Dreams can come true.
The Mia measures around 9 feet from snap to snap and covers, "anything leaving the house: tether, longline, working heel leash without extra bulk, hands-free mental enrichment walks, off-leash adventures... Just so many uses!"
After months of creation and testing, Masha and Mia have this to say:
"Mia and I have so much fun using this leash! She loves working with it. It's light to carry and it promotes even better communication between the two of us because it's so responsive to our body language, and the grippy texture of the leash doesn't let it slide in my hand easily. And I love the versatility! It's great to have a single leash that gets us covered for anything leaving the house: tether, longline, working heel leash without extra bulk, hands-free mental enrichment walks, off-leash adventures... Just so many uses! And I absolutely am in love with the material! It's not the standard BioThane, it's so soft and grippy. I have so many good things to say about it!"
