Our “About Us” story started about 14 years ago... 

mr. breakfast best life leashes

My name is Liz and while working in veterinary medicine and volunteering for dog rescue groups, I interacted with thousands of rescue dog parents. This helped me learn why people choose to adopt their dog. 

All of the rescue dog owners had one thing in common: Seeing and hearing from YOU. 


They were all, at some point in time, inspired by seeing other peoples' rescue dog and hearing their rescue story!

I learned that people who had adopted a dog were all inspired to do so after seeing & hearing about other people that had adopted, too!

Ok... so where do we go from here?

What do we do with this valuable information?!

That's where my life partner, and creative problem solver comes in. 

He helped put together the pieces needed to accomplish our lifelong goal to help more dogs get rescued. 

We knew what we wanted...

...but we weren’t exactly going to start running up to strangers on the street or announcing to everyone passing by that our dogs are rescues. 

We’re passionate. Not crazy.

We gave birth to Best Life Leashes to make it easier to:

#1 Show others that you’ve chosen to adopt your dog

#2 Share your dog's story 

#3 Inspire more people to adopt a rescue, getting more dogs into forever homes

Now you're probably asking, "How the heck does a dog leash company do all of that?!"

Hint: It's all in the stripes

Those 3 goals of Best Life Leashes are accomplished by putting our signature two stripes on every leash or collar we make.  

They signify your dog as a rescue and let others know you chose to adopt your dog.

Use a leash with purpose...

...and one that looks good on you and is also built to last. (Because rescue dogs deserve nothing but the best, ya know!)

 I'm just going to say it...

Cheap leashes suck. Ugly leashes suck. 

And there are so many of them!

You know it's true.

Even the trendiest, most expensive, tacky-looking dog products always end up:

✖️ causing friction burn to your hands when pulling happens (and pulling happens...even with the best of dogs) 

✖️ fraying like crazy 

✖️ being uncomfortable to hold 

✖️ never lasting as long as a leash should (especially for the price you pay)

✖️ being unsafe to use 

✖️ and they never look that great… 

We've paid close attention to make sure our leashes don’t do any of those things.  Instead...

Our leashes include features that make walks more comfortable for both you and your dog.

Go see the 6 things you'll love most about our leash.

With such an attractive and functional leash, you'll find yourself wanting to go on longer walks, which means more opportunities to rep your stripes.

The more people who choose to adopt a rescue dog, the more dogs find homes, the fewer there are in shelters and foster homes.

Our leashes are the only ones that function as a new solution to a problem, all while looking good, feeling good, and supporting rescue organizations and animal shelters...all at the same time.

Stop using just a dog leash. Start using a leash with the sole purpose to save more dogs.

REP your stripes. SAVE MORE DOGS.
