The leash is a high quality, super low recoil 16 foot retractable made just for cats. It is designed to feed off their instincts to chase the feathers, but they cannot catch them.
The leash has feathers & a bell that are tethered to the recoil on the leash so when kitty is distracted you allow slack on the leash with the push of a button and the feathers drop to the floor- give them a wiggle and kitty comes running towards them, as kitty does this you press the button again releasing the recoil and it sucks the feathers up the leash and towards you as kitty is already moving thus changing kitty’s direction to the direction you want.
Over time you’ll just jingle the handle and kitty will come in the direction you want with the foundation that the training builds.
It’s repetition training- because cats don’t react well to negative reinforcement, so this beats that obstacle.

Using the surfercat harness and leash has opened up a new world for me and my cat! The leash trainer feathers and bell really motivate and excite my cat and it makes outdoor time so much fun.
It’s super lightweight and gives her enough freedom to roam freely, in safety and at my comfort level. She’s always excited and eager to go outside and explore, and I love watching her play, grow, and learn to navigate the outdoors. Thank you!!
Pip loves it and it’s been so helpful whenever he gets distracted. We were walking in a straight line after day 1, and now we’re doing 2+ mile hikes. (The toy has suffered somewhat over the last few months, to no fault of the leash construction... that’s what happens when you let a Bengal near feathers. 😂 He still loves it and will pounce regardless.)
It is very easy to use and my cat, Dash, loves the attached feathers. It pairs with the sufercat harness trainer to be the best harness/leash combo that I have tried! Dash accepted this training system fairly quickly and we are excited to embark on more adventure cat training with him! I highly recommend this leash trainer and also the harness trainer for anyone out there looking to get started with adventure training their kitty!
