Also read the reviews on the website for more fun.

|KZoppa||HORRIBLE IDEA!!!! Too many people dont use the single ones properly! dual lines is even worse!|

Wow that is a very horrible product for novice dog owners to be able to purchase!
I do own some retractable leashes but I only use them when we're hiking up in the mountains if there's a lot of mountain bikers and I want my dog to be able to roam a bit but be able to have some control in getting them out of the way. Their recalls are good it's just sometimes those bikers go by pretty fast and I need a faster reaction time.
And we use one for our golden at the beach because he loves to run and swim and we don't always want to get wet lol and the closest beach to us does not allow dogs off leash.
They certainly have there uses though I am going to be switching to some really long training leads instead, those offer longer lengths and seems like much better control.
I would never dare use that dual leash though, wow.

|llombardo||I use a retractable leash if I'm just running the dogs out to go potty really fast. I don't use them on walks, for training, or at the pet store. I do not have a problem with them, but I can see how some people would.|

Wow, as if one wasn't dangerous enough in the hands of most people now it's two!
FWIW I have no problem with the leashes themselves in the hands if the right people are using them.

Dual retractable leashes Yikes!
Has anybody encountered these? Iíve seen two in the last week and my oh my what a sight it is! Iíve learned the best thing you can do is just walk in the opposite direction because these people have zero control. Iím thinking Christmas presents?
Anyways, here a link of the product yikes just yikes
