TinyHorse was inspired by co-founder Taylor Leedahl’s experience as a professional dog walker in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. She loved working with the dogs, but pain from the chronic stress of managing multiple dogs on leash impacted the joy of her time with the dogs, as well as her personal life. Leedahl recognized that 1) a lack of gear for walking more than two dogs at once and that 2) the inability for a standard leash to accommodate the complexity of commercial dog walking were hindrances to the dog care industry. Leedahl, with the help of co-founder Sara Weetman, set out to make task-appropriate tools.
They designed the Lead-All leash, a patent-pending product that centralizes the pull of multiple dogs into a singular, manageable point. The reduction of micro-fatigue on the body and mind was immediately apparent and quickly attracted the attention of fellow dog walkers. TinyHorse's premiere product, the Lead-All, launched in May 2017 and since has been improved upon through customer feedback and Leedahl's 6-year career walking dogs. The product line now includes modular components for hand-held and hands-free dog walking, as well as training and safety tools.

What initially began as a singular connection point has expanded into a responsive set of tools used to attend to and manage the diversity of needs within a group of dogs. By enabling you to connect dogs to one central point or to split your group into smaller manageable units, the same set of tools can be used to walk a group of well-trained dogs in the morning and then be reconfigured for a mixed-need group in the afternoon, allowing you to focus your attention where it’s needed most. With gear working with you rather than against you, you’re able to apply your training approach to dogs who require guidance.
