No words can describe the usefullness of the Harness Lead. When I found this lead online, I had been working with "agressive" dogs at a shelter that very few people could handle, and I was using a regular loop lead and creating my own harness of sorts with it. Volunteers would see what I was doing and realized how helpful it was in handling these dogs and started doing it too. So I went on an internet search, because surely I wasn't the only person who had had this idea!, and came upon THE HARNESS LEAD! And OH My Dog! It is a piece of equipment worth it's weight in gold! Not only does it accomplish exactly what I was trying to do with a simple loop lead, but it does it Safely AND leaves you a full length of leash to work the dog on! I fell in love as soon as I ordered one!
Well, then I had the privelidge to meet the creator Lisa, and now have the even greater priviledge of calling her a friend. Not only are these leads amazing & Made in the USA, she even DONATES part of the profits to rescue organizations!!!!!!!
As a trainer, I VERY RARELY Endorse a product. But this one I believe in full hartedly and ask all my clients to use it... every time I hear how much easier it makes their dogs to handle as we start training.
So now you're asking what exactly does this leash do?
It is a ONE PIECE slip lead that turns into a harness and it is ESCAPE PROOF (when used properly) unlike other harnesses (which as a trainer, for me are only slightly better than retractable leashes ... shudder). It works as a slip lead, harness, emergency head collar or muzzle, long training line, short heel lead and it doesn't choke your dog!
