Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

well the do have couplers for attaching to dogs on a leash, but I've heard that huskies can break the retractable leash. there are have duty couplers I've seen, here's the link:

if you want a double line for urban mushing i would look in to getting the tug n' tow. its like a retractile leash on steroids  lol! . I'm defiantly going to invest in one when Leo is old enough to start urban mushing.

For bikejoring skijoring or scootering I would recommended a "mushing" 2 dogs line you can check out selections at ctcdoggear-usa, Alpine Outfitters, blackicedogsledding, howlingdogalaska this type line has a bungee in it for the "give and take" of the "joring" for walking I recommend a simple coupler or splitter for a leash. I have a hip belt that helps a lot for the skijoring and the walking then a bungee lead 2 dog for the other styles exercise (scooter bike).

I don't like the retractable at all - can cut your hand on it, the thing can let loose from its attachment inside the case, the retractable part can dysfunction at a critcal moment...

As to joring/mushing etc, I bow to others with more experience than I.

I agree with the others, the retractable is just too unpredictable...I foresee it snapping. My little girl has snapped a regular lead (the metal part wore...probly due to her pulling...she was after a bunny at the time) as for any other recommendations, I am useless, I'm still doing one lead in each hand...the arm that walks Mishka is probly longer than my other arm, haha

Can't do one lead in each hand as i probably need a flashlight at night.

it's on rollerblades.
I have a husky and somebody just moved in with a staffie.

I bought this crappy ring system with 2 regular type latches.

my flexi leash has been industructable.

I'm talking countless distance with hard yanks, it is the tape kind not the cord.


i liked this but the braking system looks subpar.

it is cheap.

main concern is their too close to each other.

and goly most gear people posted wasn't cheap
