Looking for a spray leash that solves all your walking woes with your dog? Relief is just a spray away with Spleash!
According to Kerry Cooke, founder and inventor of Spleash,
“Spleash is a spray leash handle that attaches to your favorite leash and holds 12 ounces of water and can spray up to 14 feet so you can walk, protect, and refresh your animal on the go…”
Inventing Spleash in All Its Glory
As someone who lives in the hot Southern California sun with a 91-pound black Labrador-Weimaraner mix, Kerry wanted to make her routine walks with her furry child enjoyable and convenient.
However, Lola, her dog, was a big girl with tons of energy and loves to go out on long, extensive walks, while Kerry was the type who remembered Lola’s water usually only when they were already halfway down the street.
“So, it’s generally very sunny and warm, and I couldn’t get very far on these walks without giving Lola some refreshment and cooling her down in some way. I saw the different solutions that started to pop around a couple of years ago, where you squeeze it and the water fills up a little bowl for them to drink. That was great, but it was inevitably hanging from my leash, sort of weighing down the wrist or hooked to my pants and knocking against my leg, or I just forgot it.”
This got Kerry mulling over the possibilities of having a squirt gun attached to one’s leash which she could use to spray Lola down during their walks. And with necessity being the mother of all inventions, the answer soon came to Kerry until they formed the company sometime in March of 2019.
Thus, Spleash was officially born.
How Spleash Works
As stated on their website, there are many ways you can use Spleash.
For instance, you can use it while walking with your pups since it’s more comfortable for your hands and gives you a better grip on your leash. It also fits most standard-sized leather, rope, and nylon leashes. Apart from that, a quick spray on the grass helps you ward off unsightly burn marks.
In terms of providing protection, on the other hand, Spleash has a 14-foot protective spray radius of water that serves as a non-aggressive way to ensure your Fidos remain safe during your walks.
Meanwhile, Spleash also holds up to 12 oz of water, allowing you to refresh your pooches and keep them cool during walks.
According to Kerry, the goal is to help better take care of dogs everywhere by hydrating and protecting them while you’re out at once.
“Essentially, you take off this little key right here—it’s called a cam—and it’ll fit with a flat leash or a rope leash. You can see there’s a divot that gets smaller as you turn it around. And when you trap the leash in the channel, which can be a flat or a rope leash, it sticks… So, it really locks in tight, but I didn’t want to be responsible for this not working and losing somebody’s dogs. So, we worked a lot on this mechanism to make sure it would work with most standard size leashes,”
A Step-by-Step Guide on How to Get Your Leash in Spleash
One thing that Kerry emphasized during the podcast is the fact that Spleash is not a retractable leash. On the contrary, there’s no leash included when you buy the product, as it’s meant to go on your favorite leash.
So if you’re wondering how to get your preferred leash in Spleash, here’s how:
- Step #1: Fill your Spleash with fresh drinking water before each walk.
- Step #2: Depress the colored buttons on both sides of the Spleash. Pull forward on the CAM wheel while you hold them down.
- Step #3: Pull the CAM wheel out of the Spleash.
- Step #4: Lay your leash in the CAM wheel. Position the CAM in the correct direction so you can insert it into the Spleash. Pinch the 2 silver pins on each side of the CAM and depress your leash into the Spleash.
- Step #5: Press the CAM into the CAM wheel until you hear a “click”.
- Step #6: Make sure the pet end of the leash always exits the top of the CAM. Tug on the leash to ensure it’s secure.
