The concept of a dog leash is documented as far back as over 8,000 years ago, and our partnership with dogs survives in 30,000-year-old archeological evidence. The process of domestication continues to evolve and thrive today, and TinyHorse is a company creating solutions for the rising phenomena of today’s relationships between humans and dogs. In 2021, Taylor from TinyHorse will delve into the unique history of dogs and humans and relate it to our contemporary experiences.
Dog care professionals are an integral part of the social fabric that supports people with their canine companionships. The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the patterns of several of our clients disrupting the stability of many businesses. I’m inspired to see dog walkers lift one another up, offer ideas about how to navigate this situation, and continune to shine light through posts of the dogs still in their care. TinyHorse wants to participate in this resilience. We have temporarily increased our industry discount from 20% to 30%.
In TinyHorse launched in May 2017 with a single product: the Lead-All leash system. These are the leashes that join a pack of dogs to one central point. The human handler then clips a lead onto the ring to set the pace and guide the pack. At the time of our launch, we suggested walkers could use any old leash to clip onto the ring. You can still use any leash to guide your pack. But in the years since the launch, TinyHorse has designed a unique line of leads that amplify the possibilities of our leash system beyond any other leash on the market. Our leads characteristically have extra handles and hardware, and they are shorter...
As I was designing this lead, I thought about how the Lead-All leash system requires a unique approach to really appreciate what it can offer you as a dog walker. I considered how I might build that unique approach into the function of the products themselves, to rely less on the dog walker and more on "the physics."
