We present to you the Lishinu, the most intelligent retractable leash that you don’t need to hold in your hand. It has been designed for those of you who want to go for a walk, jogging or shopping together with your dog and at the same time don`t want to worry about tying your shoes, answering the phone, opening the door or carrying shopping bags.
In comparison to other leashes, Lishinu is characterized by the intuitive auto-lock system, which enables a harmonic movement of the man and the dog, ensures your hands to be free, is easy to use as well as is extremely light (weights approximately the same as a men's quality wristwatch) and at the same time very strong.
Lishinu was born from a rather bitter life experience which thankfully turned into a "hollywood like" happy ending story that lives on :).
Grega, one of the creators of Lishinu, adopted a greyhound named Red. While taking one of many regular walks, Grega had to tie his shoes. At that point something frightened Red. He started running and was soon out of sight and lost. Red was found after four days, all exhausted, but otherwise safe and sound.
Grega began searching for a solution to prevent this from ever happening again. He started sketching up some ideas that also his cousin Rok liked. The ideas kept popping and twisting and after more than 20 months of designing, testing and engineering the Lishinu was finally born.
Now we need your support to start producing Lishinu!
Lishinu is extremely easy to use, as you put it on your wrist in less than 6 seconds. There are neither buttons nor handles on the device. Your hands are completely free!
Self retractable, fully adjustable length of the leash on your demand. You have 300 centimeters of leash on your full disposal at any time you might want it, but you can always shorten that to as low as 50 centimeters keeping safe guard of your dog when needed.
Keep full control of your dog with simple, natural motions of your hand and body. The auto-lock system is triggered by the centrifugal forces. The "hammers" inside activate when the velocity of movement exceeds the desired speed. To put it in a real world situation, Lishinu would prevent a dog to dramatically increase the speed, make sudden changes in direction or undertake other unexpected movement. The auto-lock also allows you to pull the dog towards you in case you want the dog closer, avoid an obstacle or in any common situation when you want to prevent the dog from a certain activity or behavior.
We made sure that is easy to attach and also very simple to remove it in case of emergency. Just pull the safety belt.
You can also attach Lishinu to your dog, so you don't have to carry it. In this case you just reverse it, the functionality remains the same!
Made of strong and durable plastics. Reinforced with laser-cut stainless steel metal parts. Lishinu is resistant to many hits with longer
lifecycle. Choosing the right material made it possible to keep it
compact and lightweight while creating a fresh appearance.
And so does Lishinu. Lishinu is desgined in 6 standard + 2 limited colors for men and women. Its special shape makes it great as an accessory. Choose the one that best fits your lifestyle and be unique.
With Lishinu its easy to control your dog or any other pet with the simplest, natural motions of your body. Gain full control with no restraint. You can now really feel your animal friend. Its all the functionality without unnecessary wearable parts.
Lishinu comes in a beautifully and cleverly designed quality packaging. “It stands out from the crowd”. This is why Lishinu makes a perfect gift for a dog lover. But it doesn’t stop here. Be creative! Reuse the Lishinu packaging the way it best fits your every day needs.
Reviews from people who have had the opportunity to experience Lishinu in real life have further confirmed that the product is intuitive and practical. As a Vet excitedly said: »Its so cool - I keep my hands free and my wrist relieved - unbelievable!«. A professional dog trainer has entrusted us: »Great product, suitable for obedient as well as those 'a bit' naughtier dogs.«
Once we start the production of Lishinu, we pledge to donate a part of the annual revenue to animal shelters & rescue, because we want to help those who can not help themselves.
When developing new products we will engage students to offer them real life experience and prepare them for the working environment in the industry.
Your donation will enable us to start the production of Lishinu. Here is a list of perks you can choose from.
You can always help us spread the word by sharing our campaign with your family, friends and colleagues. Thank you!

Passion for creating new and enhancing existing things has accompanied me since my early childhood. When I turned 14 I was introduced to the world of application programming which later made the most of my professional career. Starting by developing a simulation application for casinos at the age of 16, through which results of simulations lead to the creation of the most accurate roulette wheel. I then moved into the world of web development, where I contributed in developing many web portals, stores, pages from database to GUI levels and integrating systems (like the early XI on SAP). After 12 years of application programming I was entrusted into project managing and process optimization, starting in the field of application development and integration and later switching to business operations. My focus is always on the bigger picture where simplicity and perfection of user experience is my drive. Being a vegetarian I am a natural animal lover, I cultivate a special feeling for dogs as many different dog souls have entered my life that I grew a special relation with them. The world of manufacturing is new to me, although over the past 2 years I realized that the process of successfully making a product or an application is not that different. Choosing the best people is the key.
Grega Likar, co-owner & Design director
The love for dogs was allways present in my life. Since I was verry young we had a dog at home - the Aliaskan Malamut was the dog of choice. I allways admired how stubborn and gracefull can they be at the same time. I started my study years as an industrial designer, as I always believed that all the things in life have room for improvement. Since my early LEGO days I tried to modify, never following the instructions - making a product better. This is my moto and I applied it in everithing I've done so far (more than 700 products). From boats to yewelry, glass design and advertising I've tried to broaden my horrizon with every new product. A lot of fails but also many successes brought me to the current day. I've done my best, allong Rok and the team ofcourse, to make good use of all the past experiences and have produced, I believe, the best product yet. As this is only the begining of a great story - Lishinu already has new products waiting to be introduced in the future. Try the first one and be part of the story that will change the world.
Oleg Carai, Engineer & Constructor
Thanks to the experience gained during 15 years of working on projects involving implementation in the construction design - from farm machinery to plastic products in the electronics industry - I was fortunate enough to contribute to the creation of a really cool product that I believe will more than satisfy a lot of dog lovers.
... and many others that contributed to the development and launch of Lishinu. Thank you all!
