Split leashes

I'm hoping that someone can tell me the pros and cons of walking two dogs on a split leash (AND the kind you use). OR...if you recommend the separate leashes...

I've been walking Molly and Billy on their separate leashes (that are joined together), but I'm gonna' lose circulation in my hand if I don't find something else soon.

Mary and I have seen some split leashes, but the dogs would have to walk SO close together! Right now, they both walk together (neither pulls, and they stay at my side), but there's enough slack on the leashes that if one has to stop, the other doesn't get whiplash!

As always, whatever you suggest will be gratefully appreciated!

Maureen, I am not coordinated enough to walk them on seprate leashes. Although my DH hates to use the double leash

I love the dog walker plus leash-- it comes in nylon or leather.

I like it because they do not get tangled as where the leashes attach swivels
and the leashes split close to the handle so you can still grab the leash part if you need more control.

Maureen, I have something like that too, but mine are a lot shorter. I had three of them on it at once, now that was insane!! So Lily gets to walk on her own, and Logan & Lexi walk with the coupler. At first they give each other a little whiplash, but they finally "get it" and seem to know when the other has to stop = so they stop. I like is so much better than having the two leashes!!
When you come visit I can show you my setup.

Missy--

I, too, am less than gracefully coordinated with two separate leashes! I think I'm providing some entertainment for the neighbors...ESPECIALLY when Molly and Billy decide to play "May Pole"!

I like the look of the leash you gave me info about!

Laurie--

THREE? AT ONE TIME??!! I have the feeling they would...Hav their way with me! (OK...REALLY bad pun! )


Laurie--You could moonlight giving Hav-walking lessons!

My mom loves her double leash for her small ones. It splits up by the handle and has the parts that twist so the can cross over each other. It solved the whole tangle issue for her.

She got it online. I think this is the one (I just called her to see where she got it). http://www.arcatapet.com/item.cfm?cat=10922
It also comes in nylon versions. She just said again how much she loves it.
