Stevenzachsmom I like when Lily meets the little boy on the leash and the parents start treating them like dogs. "He just wants to say, hi." "It's OK, she's friendly." And then they get all tangled up in each others leashes.

Ah, leashed children are so much fun.

I love this episode, especially when Lily get high heels in the end to keep her from running away.

jocoyn I will tell you what NOT to do. Once I tried to track with a 33' long heavy duty tape harness. ....... dog took off down the track......fast. When he hit the end I went down.

I have a tape flexi for pit stops when we travel...but that is about it.

I can see the points made by others, and they make sense when I look at it like that. I guess it's just the experiences I have had that have made me think ill of them.
Same here. I know there are good uses for it, I've just only ever seen bad ones.

wolfy dog What really would put me off is a kid on a leash and parent on a cell phone.

Reminds me, I never get lost, I just temporarily misplace myself.

Castlemaid I've no issues with a kid on a harness and a line - as long as it isn't a flexi!!! It's the parents' job to keep their kids safe, so if putting them in a harness and having them tethered to you is what it takes, then you are doing your job as a parent.

You know, I don't have any kids - but I have Asperger's (high functioning autistic) - hand holding is stressful for me, AND I have psoriasis and my hands are affected - I'd be a lot more comfortable having a kid on a leash than holding hands for extended amounts of time.

The flexi thing in a crowded place though - that's just not all that bright.
