From the brand
HOW WE STARTED
We invented the Jerk-Ease as a father/daughter team when our dog pulled hard on the leash, injuring a family member’s shoulder. The idea was to make a “shock absorber” that would cushion tugs on the leash and prevent injuries. We learned from our vet that jerking on the leash also harms dogs, so we started our business with the goal of helping people and their pups live safely and happily without jerks.
WILL THE JERK-EASE STOP MY DOG FROM PULLING?
The Jerk-Ease acts as a shock absorber when your dog pulls, but some dogs do pull less, or stop altogether, because when the Jerk-Ease stretches it lets the dog know it’s about to hit the end of the leash – and dogs don’t like that sudden jerk any more than we do.
HOW LONG WILL MY JERK-EASE LAST?
We use the finest bungee cord available (made in the USA), but over time all elastic will relax and lose elasticity. How long that takes depends on weight, breed, temperament, and frequency of use. Each Jerk-Ease comes with tips to maximize longevity.
For Extra-Large Dogs
If you have an extra large dog (over 110 pounds) or an extra strong puller, you can combine a LARGE and a MEDIUM Jerk-Ease in parallel.
More uses for Jerk-Ease
Because the Jerk-Ease comes in a variety of sizes, it works great for cats, ferrets, and many farm animals including goats and horses.
Jerk-Ease Design History
These are some of the many design ideas and materials we tried before settling on the one that worked best.
IS THE JERK-EASE BITE-PROOF?
All elastic leashes may become compromised if bitten. We include a pamphlet with each Jerk-Ease that includes tips to dissuade chewing.
CAN THE JERK-EASE BE USED WITH A YARD STAKE?
The Jerk-Ease is designed for walking, jogging, cycling and other fun activities you do with your dog. We don’t recommend fastening any elastic leash to an unyielding object such as a yard stake or fence post, primarily because doing so will shorten its lifespan.
