    Great article, thanks Sharon. I have never used one because of the idiots I have seen following their dogs, 20 feet behind them. It makes me cringe when I see it, just the thought of what could happen.

    Good cautionary tale, though I do wish the author would mention the correct way to use them. Like most equipment, there's a time and a place and a right way and a wrong way. I see these misused so often, and I really wish people would have to get a certificate in common sense before buying them. (or better yet, before buying any pet or procreating, but I digress....)

    I hate them.
    I bought one when Kass was a puppy. The vet told me how to use it and it seemed fine for a few months until one day she decided to take off after something. The thing broke and the end hit me in the face splitting my cheek. I have never used one again until I was given one for walking the Lhasa. I couldn't control her and she kept jumping out into the road. I ended up joining my 2 together and using Ernie lead for her on the walk home
