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.

PostSubject: How to walk and run with two dogs?   Sat May 19, 2012 8:05 pm

I'm starting to walk more and more with the girls and I am looking for an easy way to walk both at the same time. A couple is out of the question as they don't like being that close together forcefully but, when we walk with two leashes, they walk next to each other..That's weird. Anyway, what's the best thing to use for walking, and eventually run (training using the Couch to 5K program), with the girls? I've heard of the leashes that attach to your waist but I'm not sure.

Thanks!

Denise

Need one of these waist leashes also! Asia's current leash has the option, but it's not as padded and it could be a bit longer when worn around the waist. Actually used it around the waist earlier today. Makes it easier to have a free hand and it alleviates the pulling too!

I was thinking of getting the ruff wear roamer leash. All of their leashes are ruff wear and I trust them. Plus, I think a few people on here have this one and love it. I believe Heather has it for Koda. Heather?

Have to wait a while though or Ivan will kill me if I buy something else dog related..lol.

I have the Ruffwear omnijore system and I use that with running- if I don't want to wear the belt with the omnijore, I use my roamer leash and loop one of the omnijore leashes through that so they are both on the belt.


BTW, Mel, I have a green roamer leash I don't use anymore that's the old style (his the plastic clip, not metal). If you want it let me know. It's wasted space on my behalf.
