We fell in love with EzyDog when we saw their leashes. From just looking at their products, you can see that they build their dog products based on sports technology!
We also love that they incorporated zero shock technology into their leashes as we've all experienced that horrible jerk at the spotting of a squirrel. EzyDog also has come up with some other great leash variations from the coupler (2 dogs on one leash) to the multi-function vario.
We got the opportunity to interview EzyDog to get more of an inside look of their company and inspirations:
Tell us about EzyDog and how the company got started.
Brothers, Phil and Luke Hatcher, from Australia originally started out in the water sports industry. At the same time, John Hatcher (not related) was working for a major water-ski manufacturer in the USA. Sharing the same last name in the same small industry eventually got them introduced. Phil, Luke and John's experience in this industry and love of dogs sparked the idea to combine the best of both worlds, which inspired the original shock absorbing leash - the Cujo.
EzyDog Neo Collar
They saw that materials from the water sports world work well for the dog market. For instance, neoprene is a very durable material that does not absorb oils so it does not get stinky like a typical nylon collar. The Cujo leash was the first product to be introduced to the pet industry and started what would eventually become EzyDog.
EzyDog officially began about 10 years ago and has developed into a highly technical, full line of dog products that focus on function, durability and unique designs. The focus has been to enhance the outdoor experience with our dogs.
Tell us more about the materials used to make EzyDog products?
We make our own webbing, which allows us to more closely monitor the consistency and quality. We end up with a webbing that is super soft and extremely strong and durable. We use materials such as Neoprene for padded comfort, easy to clean and absorbs less stink than traditional materials. We also use EVA to form to the dog’s body for truly a custom fit. These "outside the box materials" make a superior product.
What are your most popular products?
Our Chest Plate and Quick Fit Harnesses along with our shock absorbing leashes are really popular. The combination of these with your pup can truly transform your walking/running experience. Our DFD (Doggy Floatation Device) and Summit Backpack continue to be popular as well. We attribute these items popularity with the ease of use and the problem solving features these items provide.
Road Runner Leash
Tell us about the Road Runner leash.
The Road Runner Leash is out and we're are very excited about this leash. It incorporates our Zero Shock Technology, reflective trim for night-time safety and the hands-free adjustments make it perfect for running with you dog. Our proprietary webbing ensures a super soft leash that is just plain comfortable.
Zero Shock Leash
Some people might assume your products are only for large &/or tough dogs ?
While our active look may appear to cater to the medium and larger breeds, we actually make products for all shapes and sizes of dogs. The Sparky, as well as, our Lite range of leashes, use clips and webbing widths more appropriate for the smaller dogs.
EzyDog Vario Leash
This is also true of our collars and harnesses. We even have a Micro line of Life Vests. The Sparky weighs 3.9 oz while the Cujo (40 inch) weighs 6.0 oz. We do offer our Soft Trainer Leash, Vario 4 and Vario 6 leashes, as well as, couplers available in the Lite versions. Sometimes the little guys are the hardest to control and they need our products most!

There is something special about medium breeds that most people cannot ignore. After all, when comparing dog sizes, they are usually more physically active than small pooches. They are also more portable than big dogs. In this respect, we have some popular suggestions for you if you are open to adopting one!
Dogs that stay small are adorable, easy to carry and don’t eat much. This means they are easier to take care of, even on a budget! The thing about them is that they don’t always have a good reputation, primarily due to certain misinformed stereotypes. Chances are, you may also be having some of these misgivings.
Crate training is crucial because it ensures that your dog ends up with a good sense of security and comfort when you bring home one of these crates. They have to feel comfortable enough to enter the crate without feeling scared or forced.
Small dogs are adorable, cuddly, and they suit any home or apartment. They make the best companions for kids too! So, if you find yourself trying to decide which dog to adopt, we’ve got a few ideas on which ones should be at the top of your list.
