Fabulous Leash Find for Nighttime Potty Walking

Living in a home without a fenced yard, every time Oreo goes out, it is on a leash. I am pretty obsessive about picking up his poop. At night, it was a real challenge trying to hold a leash and shine a flashlight on the poop, pull out a bag and pick up the poop with only 2 hands. I have found a fabulous solution that I want to share for others in the same situation. It is the Flexi tape leash with the LED light accessory.


Since the light is mounted on the leash, it doesn't take another hand to aim the flashlight, and the light is bright enough to clearly be able to see the poop if you are only a few feet away. I also got the Flexi Multi Box poop bag attachment, which is much easier to use than the dangling poop bag holders.
I am sure the more experienced pet parents here have probably found even better solutions, but this one has been great for me.

I used on very similar before we had multiple dogs and a fenced yard. They're great! I don't like flexes for regular walking, because people let their dogs get in all sorts of dangerous situations (for themselves, other dogs and people) with them. But they are GREAT for standing in one place and letting the dog sniff around and find a place to potty.

I agree that you do have to be careful using a retractable leash. When my son was little, a man walking a huge black Lab on a long extended leash let the dog go up from the sidewalk into our neighbor's yard and knock my toddler down. He was scared for years of big black dogs. That being said, when the only way a dog gets outside, it sometimes needs a little room to roam, especially if it is one that prefers a little privacy when it is doing its business.
