Got a new leash that I LOVE! When it arrived it was right before I went to work so I couldn't try it out. Mel was very disappointed in being teased by it.
Its really cool. You can get it here: Titan Tuff
It has a traffic lead on the end, but the handle is not a traditional handle. (Don't worry you can still attach a poop bad holder lol) Its great for walks keeping my hands free. the clasp is rated to 500lbs so I am not worried about it failing. I carry spray and treats so not having to worry about the leash gives Gargamel the freedom to switch sides and not get all tangled up or have to switch hands. And since we have a leash law, its PERFECT for picture taking and not having to unclip the leash to wrap it around something and keep your pup safe. The only issue I have is I wish it were a bit longer than 5 1/2 feet. I got used to the handle and really like the feel of the leash. Check them out if you are looking for a good hiking leash!
He was happy the next day when we got to use it.
