Do you mean like a coupler, or like two horses being driven in harness?

I have seen only a couple of times,you conect your 2 dogs together ,so that they are side by side when on the lead,then you are holding the main lead.

Yes thats it.What do you think,i was thinking of useing that when the Archie is older,and able to walk with Alfie.I thought it will stop them going of in different directions,esp. near a road.What do you think Cathryn.?.

Hi Justine!!

Sorry to be a while replying had to do the school run and left the computer on! :rolleyes: Personnally I just use ordinary leads on my lot, they get a bit twisted up but nothing I can't untangle :lol:
If you think your boys will be easier to manage that way then fine!! I think some-one else posted about this a while ago and there was another coupler featured that had a twizzler on it so that the leads didn't tangle but can't remember what thread it was in!! :sl*p:

I found that coupler at this site,

They were priced at £4.99 + P&P which seemed pretty fair to me!

I have one of those, but don't use it because Lady is so much bigger and stronger than Amber that she pulls her over, so if you pm me I would be willing to post it too you, some one may as well get some use out of it.

Let us know how it works for you!

I tried one when India and Geordie were youngsters, and they didn't like it one bit. Their reactions were funny at first, but then they started a tiff - I quickly removed it and put it away. :rolleyes:

I've got the Sporn Double Dog Leash (http://www.sporn.com/product_info.php?products_id=30) and I love it. It never tangles & you can adjust how much leash each dog gets, which helps if you have a big dog & a little dog, or one the pulls

I use a coupler for two of my dogs and I love it! It is best if the dogs are about the same size, and I wouldn't use a coupler with puppies.

I tried a coupler with my two but it didn't work because Jake was so much taller than Shelby. I have something similar to what Karlin is using. I use the pet walker plus. Not sure when you can get it over there. I like that the extension are long enough that a shortie and a tallie and can walk next to each other with shortie's feet still touching the ground :D
