Benefits of a Shock Absorbing Elastic Dog Leash
This elastic leash offers a degree of give when the leash is pulled. When a dog pulls a non-elastic leash, the force transfers through the leash to your hand, forcing your arm forward. To regain control, you need to tug the leash toward you. When a dog pulls an elastic leash, the elastic absorbs the force by stretching, then it contracts slowly, gently applying pressure to the dog.
The main benefit of the shock-absorbing lead is that it is self-correcting. If you have your hand jolted by an overenthusiastic dog, your instinct may be to apply equal force to the leash as a corrective measure. This can hurt and possibly injure the dog as the force he applies to your hand returns to his neck. The shock absorption of an elastic leash make it difficult for the dog to jolt his walker and for the walker to jolt him back with the same force as a non-elastic leash. Instead, the leash gently contracts, slowly applying more resistance as the dog pulls.
