    DefaultTell me how you do it?

    Walking Bogey alone was fine, he would sometimes get tangled on things (me, trees), but walking two OMG!

    While Im watching one the other somehow without my knowledge gets so tanlgled up on stuff I actually have to get down and figure it out! All the while getting kisses and licks, like "hey what are you doin here?"

    If I ever had to walk these two in public I would probly be embarrassed. Im forever stepping over this leash, twirling around to get that one straight. I look like a complete idiot, I know I do!

    Then there are the dogs who are completely oblivious to my attempts to just have a nice walk. Or are they? Sometimes I think they do it on purpose, LOL!

    So are your walks like this too?

    When I walk two down town I use a coupler that keeps them side by side.

    Very similar to this one.

    I walk mine everyday, 3 and never had a problem, but I have no pullers, so makes it easy.

    If two or more on lead was going to be the routine for me, it would be gentile leader, or prong collar, and short leashes until we all got used to each other. If each dog can be walked alone with ease, I wouldn't think it would take too long before they figure out the routine.

    Well when I go home for the weekend and have to walk Abbey with my parents dog who is much bigger and stronger than Abbey, they both have to be on their choke collars.. Abbey doesn't pull with that on, but my parents' dog definitely does. I try to have one on each side of me and make them both heel. I'll let them go sniff for a few seconds then it's back to heel. Works okay for me!

    I walk three at a time, all on Martingale collars and short leashes. The shorter the leash, the more control you have and less likely to tangle. If you walk one in each hand, keep them in the same place for every walk. Bruno goes on my left and M&J together on the right Mitzi on the outside. They get upset if their positions change.

    I tried the coupler when I just had two. Not a success. All hell broke loose when they realized they couldn't get apart from each other.

    Now I've got three. All on gentle leaders and they walk three across like little soldiers. Somebody should get a nobel prize for the gentle leader.

    Fits me to a tee! I have one puller and one lagger (or most of the time).
    Aren't we comfortable!

    We do pretty well most of the time. I have gone to Martingales with short leashes for the reasons mentioned earlier. Our biggest "opportunity for improvement" is when we meet another dog--Jake gets so excited that he pulls like a mad man. Then Kayla gets grumpy and snaps at him and we look like complete lunatics. Practice, practice, practice and ignore the embarrassment--that's what I'm trying to do.
    So, do you come here often?

    Boy, I can relate to this one too! I'm now not feeling so alone
