While having multiple dogs means having more love and fun to go around, it also means having trickier daily walks. This is especially true for pet parents of energetic, rambunctious pups who like to chase at anything and everything they see. And sure, you can try to wrangle two dog leashes at once, but if your pets are highly excitable, tangled messes are bound to happen. A much better and more comfortable way to walk multiple dogs is to either use a double dog leash or a coupler. Either one of these will reduce the number of leashes you need to handle during your daily dog walks, making the whole experience more pleasant for both you and your pets. That’s why we rounded up 10 of the best double dog leashes one can currently find on the market.
The Dual Dog Leash by U-Pick is one of the best models on the market, hands down.
