Mako Client Spotlight: The Leash Mitten by Dolce Dog!

About the Leash Mitten

Designed by our very own team at our Canada invention design agency Mako Design, is the Leash Mitten for our client, Jeannelle Mckenzie, owner of DolceDog! The Leash Mitten is the perfect two-in-one solution for all dog walkers across the world. As seasons begin to get colder and colder, those who own dogs and dog walkers begin to dread heading out and walking their dogs in the cold. As harsh winds and snow make it more uncomfortable for dog-owners to hold their leashes, it can be a struggle to carry a tight grip on your dog’s leash while walking them around – especially if they happen to be bigger dogs. Luckily, the Leash Mitten was designed to solve all dog owners and walkers’ problems for the cold seasons. Designed with a waterproof and plush fleece lining material, the Leash Mitten is made for a more comfortable and warm experience that actually allows you to enjoy your daily dog walks during the winter! The mitten comes with an adjustable elastic drawstring so that it fits comfortably around any wrist and a durable plastic D ring to even hold your keys and poop bags. Our Canada invention design agency loves how the Leash Mitten is not only a great glove for the winter, but helps carry your additional items in a secure place while you walk your dog.

Our Canada Invention Design Agency, Mako Design’s, Work on the Leash Mitten

The team at Mako Design was excited to work on a new innovative pet product! Jeannelle approached our Canada invention design agency Mako Design with a prototype and idea and was ready to bring her product to the next steps before starting up the DolceDog brand. The team thought that Jeanelle had a genius idea that was super helpful for all dog walkers across the world, especially those residing in countries with harsh weather like Canada! Our industrial designer from our Toronto office, Paul Davis, took on the Leash Mitten project and helped provide tech-packaging and sourcing the right materials needed to further improve the product. After sourcing was done, Paul helped detail out the exact specifications that were required for the product to be pushed into production and ready for the market! Our Canada invention design agency is extremely proud of the way that the Leash Mitten turned out and can’t wait to see its success carry on throughout the pet product market – especially with the colder weather coming up.

From design to manufacturing your prototype, research the players involved

If you are hiring a professional design and development firm to create your product, do some research before selecting the firm. This also applies to the manufacturing stage of your product. You may need to work with multiple manufacturers for various parts of your product. Does the factory incorporate alternative sources of energy such as solar or wind into the manufacturing process? Are outputs and waste managed responsibly? Does it take steps to offset the CO2 produced during manufacturing?
