Wigzi Dual Doggie Retractable Pet Leash - Walk 2 Dogs ..
My family and I raise service dogs for the blind – 8 so far and whelped 27 puppies. I am so glad we use a leather leash that folds to a 3 foot leash. I had so many scary moments with the retractable leashes: puppies darting out to the road, chasing another dog and having the cable around my legs, nearly had my finger’s decapitated, not to mention the lack of control for corrections. I’ve even pushed the lock button to realize a moment later that I unlocked it. You will also get burned hands with regular nylon leashes as they rip through your hands – use leather. I rarely use retractables anymore. It has long been a concern of mine that the “Dog Whisperer” allows people who have dog control issues to use the extendable leashes. These leashes allow the dogs to run and lunge at others without any control. Especially if you have large breeds (we have labradors), don’t use these leashes. Please keep yourself and your pet safe.

Like any piece of equipment, retractable leashes have their place if used properly with training. Dogs can learn to respect the 20 or so feet of “freedom” the retractable leash gives them and not pull for more. These leashes retract and have a lock to keep the dog close when needed but way too many handlers ignore it. Users of retractables need to desensitize their dog to the leash bouncing behind them in a safe enclosed area so if it the handler drops the leash the dog doesn’t panic. I wouldn’t use them with a head harness as there is too great of a chance that the dog will bolt to the end and get snapped around causing neck issues.
