I am a full time dog walker with a shoulder injury, fun right! I am looking for shock absorbent leashes to replace the ones I currently use. Right now I have EZ Steps leashes by Bergan but they have been discontinued. These leashes are awesome because they do stretch but they also offer some control. They also have a nice cushioned handle which you can remove and couple with another leash. Shock absorbent leashes are a life saver for me because they keep my injury from acting up.

On average I walk 3-5 dogs at a time and they range from 10 to 160 lbs. There may be some light pulling but nothing to crazy. I like these sort of leashes for the just in case factor, that being in case they decide to pull. I obtained this injury from an old cruddy job where I walked a 160 lb dog aggressive Great Dane on a wire leash and in a easy walk harness.

Anyway, these leashes are getting old and will need to be replaced soon. Also, would like to provide safe & comfortable leashes for future hires, to prevent what happened to me from happening to them.

Quick note: I did find some leashes called Wacky Walk'r. They are almost identical to the EZ Steps. In fact, when I emailed the company they claimed that EZ Steps were a cheap knock off of their item. I do like their item because again they are pretty much identical to the EZ Steps but they don't look like they offer much control. They pretty much look like a workout band with a handle and clasp.

Well, hopefully I can get some ideas and suggestions from you guys !:thumbsup:

I just bought a shock absorbant leash made from the same material as surf board leashes. I actually did a YouTube video review of it and got the owner (they are handmade in California) to make a discount code for anyone wants to buy one after watching! The code is my username haha =P
Anyways check out the video and let me know what you think :)
