About

Our Story

When walking our dog we always found ourselves carrying our keys, tennis ball, cell phones, dog treats, and doggie waste bags. This became quite a handful and didn't want to carry a purse or backpack everywhere we went. So we sat down and came up with the idea of eleash and began sewing leashes on my mom's sewing machine before we found the perfect solution for walking our dogs. 

Knowing mom's living room wasn't a practical manufacturing facility we were referred to William Weinstein at the Center of Excellence, who assisted us in developing a business strategy. Anthony Cobb, a Freelance Designer assisted with improving our pattern and design. Danny Peter, Freelance Industrial Design Consultant assisted in branding, color, pattern and bill of materials for manufacturing.  Lucille Wu, Manufacturing Consultant has coordinated the manufacturing for eleash. We can not thank these people enough, they believe in our product and we have enjoyed working with each one of them.

The Design

eleash was designed to be resourceful, practical and stylish.

  • Two storage compartments, 7" length & 3" diameter with zipper that has a moisture barrier lining for easy cleaning

  • Four stretch mesh side cargo pockets

  • Baggie roll mesh dispensing pocket

  • Buckle on the handle allows leash to be secured to a post

  • Adjustable length 40" to 60" inches & made with 1" nylon

    Reflective piping for high visability

    Available is assorted colors: Red, Black, Orange, Green, Pink, Purple

Production

The patented eleash is ready for the devoted dog owner. The last few months we have spent fine tuning the design and establishing a relationship with our manufacturer. In order to deliver a cost effective product we need to place a minimum order of 3,000 eleashes.  We anticipate our first order to take 8 weeks to be fulfilled. Until the product arrives we will keep everyone posted with updates, we will prep all our shipping & handling as to expedite the process to our backers and answer any questions that you may have.

This is where Kickstarter comes in. With your support, we will be able to make the investment necessary to mass produce eleash. So, help us bring eleash to you.

Risks and challenges

Starting eleash has met many challenges. Designing eleash, creating and testing prototypes, receiving an approved patent and sourcing a quality manufacturer to partner with for production. There is still much to get done, but we have been working with professional designers, manufacturers and business consultants to build a strong platform to launch a full production run and implement our business strategy to get eleash available to all pet owners.

Once eleash gets funded we will begin our full production. We intend to work hard to meet our estimated delivery date of January 2014 and promise to keep our backers well informed our progress.
