2 dog lead...

Recommended Posts

I am considering buying a two-dog lead and was wondering what everyone else's experience was with them. I had one when the girls were way little but they found it and chewed thru it! lol Now that they are older I was thinking about buying another one so I can try and walk them without having to constantly untangle them.

I found this one on petsmart.com

Is there a better one?

Thanks in advance,

Amber :)

We use something more like the bottom one in this pic.

We have found if you get too much distance between the dogs, they will go in different directions and you need a leash that only places about a foot between them where they have to work together. If one starts off somewhere, he is tethered to the other one only a foot away. They kinda work in tandem when they are so close together. Do you need a 2 or 3 lead?

Petsmart has a 3 lead.

I dont remember if we got our lead at petsmart or petco, ;)

Good luck

It's because cats simply can't be trusted for heavy lifting & dirty work required in the war on terrior.

I only have 2, however my best friend bought one and now they are moving to Arizona and don't think they can take him. He's only 3 months and spends most of his time here with my two, anyway. They are thinking about giving him to me and I'm up for that--although, what a responsibility!!! Cairn's are sure addictive. :) Thanks for all your info!

I have a two dog lead and it's chain not material, so they can't chew through it.

I have to say that I find it easier walking them on two normal leads because although they tie themselves up, with a two dog lead I was the one constantly being tripped up. :confused:

the 2dog leads or brace couplers are good if you're just walking from point a to point b, but they do not walk well if you are walking your dogs to get them to potty - the one that isn't doing anything won't stand still and pulls the other over.....

I bought a 2 clead coupler for Mett & Bratt, it only has about a foot of space per dog..... I only tried to use it once with them. They were jumping over eachother!

I think they deffinetly have their place, I often think I need to break down and buy one for my furkids, sometimes the leash scramble is a bit much, you know what I mean? :surrender:

I have the same problem walking Ellie and Black Lady. What a nuisance! A two lead leash sounds like a good solution. I'll have to see if my local Petco has one!

Thanks for all the advice! I think I am still going to get one and just try it out...if it doesn't work maybe I will just ebay it :)

Trying to walk the dogs and push a stroller gets a little hard by yourself!! I got a new bike and bike trailer for my birthday last week and have given the dogs rides around town. They love it and so does Emily...plus it adds a few extra pounds for me to work off MY extra pounds! lol

I hear you about the lease scramble. I buy leashes all the time and have them in lots of places. I have their nice leashes for when we want to be dignified but I have other cheap and mismatched leashes all over.. in the closet, the basement the car, the hallway, basically every room. My two are 5 and 6 months old so it is helpful.

Barbara, you sound like me! I have leashes all over the place too. I even keep a set in my car! I like to take them to the park, and it's easy to take them when they just need to jump in the car (that's in the garage0 and go!
