I just bought a traffic lead. I like the way I can walk the dogs right near me with such ease and be close enough to them without reeling them in like fish.


I was just wondering if this was a safe leash to use on walks though? Is there a reason for the other 3-5 feet of lead on a normal leash that I am not thinking of? Like if a strange dog were to approach are we at an advantage or disadvantage?

Any other safety issues you can think of?

That's always my primary concern. (there used to be a little twitching gramelin that I used a lot!) Thanks!

I think I am looking for ease of use/nothing to hurt my back, so I now have the traffic lead and ordered this hands free belt thing to try. http://clickertraining.com/store/?item=traininggear Good thinking, Tracy.

I just find that extra length of lead gets caught up and I am kind of uncoordinated so I end up feeling all discombobulated.
