When you’re walking multiple dogs at one time, especially if you’re having a ‘pack walk’ of 3 or more dogs, you’re most certainly going to need a multi-dog lead. This will make your walk so much easier and make the dogs more manageable.
There are various types of multi-dog leads on the market and they vary in price and quality. If group walks are something you do a lot of you may want to look at the higher end of the market, to ensure you’re investing in a sturdy and long lasting product.
You also may require different types and sizes of multi-dog leads depending on the size and breed of dogs you’re walking, so consider having a couple of alternatives on hand to suit the dogs you’re walking that particular day.
Here’s our picks for multi-dog leads currently on the market:
The Mekeet bungee double dog coupler lead is a popular choice for people wanting to walk 2 dogs at once. Made from a strong rubber band, this is a lead extender that clips to an existing handle.
This lead is on the lower end of the price range so it won’t cut in to your budget.
The lead has mostly positive reviews from satisifed walkers, with many people commenting that it doesn’t tangle and is strong enough for even the largest of dogs, though some people have commented that it is a little too heavy for walking very small dogs, Chihuahua’s for example.
