    owners of multiple dogs

    Advertisements
    How do you walk them? Everybody on their own leash or a coupler? I'm leaning towards the latter since they'll be roughly the same size and I know lu would get tangled in a 2nd leash.

    Anyone wanna share their experiences. Thanks.

    When I had 2 small dog I tries a coupler but one of them was nuts and it didn't work. I couldn't walk them together. Now The size difference is way too big for a coupler and I use 2 leashes. I hate walking Emmie though, she is a little 6lb nightmare to walk. She pulls and gags herself the whole way.

    I just play with them in the yard rather than walk them. Buddy is too strong and Debbie chokes herself. It's kind-of a nightmare, really.

    I have a Pomeranian and a Rottie mix.. .. so a coupler wouldn't work. But if they were the same size, I would have DEFINITELY looked into it!

    We walk on two leashes. They both know their sides and stay on their sides

    Jennypage...get them halties. That's what lu wears. She pulled so bad as a youngin I'd get rope burn. Instant fix with the halti.

    I dunno if she can keep wearing it with the coupler. It may confuse her. That's the one downfall I forsee. She doesn't need it anymore. I just like the concept.

    I have 4 dogs so the 2 little ones on one side and the other 2 on the other. Separate leashes. i make sure to keep them at the same length as much as I can to avoid tangles and what not. the hardest part was the first few times getting them used to walking next to each other.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    We have two separate leashes and harnesses. When I am walking them alone, I wind the leashes together and they do great. But, neither of my boys are really strong pullers or bad walkers.
