Double Ended Dog Lead From Truelove
This Truelove double ended lead is one complete lead with two ends. It is not two separate leads and as a double clip lead, it works very well with our range of Truelove front clip dog harnesses shown here and they can be purchased together as matching colour sets.
If you are looking for a no pull dog lead or one to help stop pulling and to give you more control, then you have come to the right place.
A double ended dog lead is used to add more control when walking your dog and it means that you don't have to buy a device that sits on the dog's nose and can rise up close to the eyes. The lead can be used as an effective braking and steering device when it is attached to a matching harness with two lead attachment points.
The image here shows how a double ended dog lead attaches to different points on the harness and how the lead can be used to apply a brake (D ring on the dog's back) and to steer (O ring on the dog's chest).
The lead can also be shortened and used as a traditional lead by clipping one end to various rings on the lead itself. This allows you to adjust the length of the lead to fit your requirements.
So where does the double ended lead attach to?
You simply attach one end of the lead to a ring on the top of the harness and the other end to the front clip on the harness. The top clip is the traditional fastening for most harnesses and is positioned around the top of the dog's shoulders and back. With this attachment alone, you have control when pulling backwards, which is basically a brake. You could attach a standard lead to this top clip.
However, when you attach the other end of a double clip lead to a front ring you will have a lot more control when steering or correcting your dog from left to right or right to left, depending on which side of you the dog is walking. It is this combination of braking and steering that puts the owner in control and this technique can reduce or totally eliminate pulling. This is why it can be classed as a no pull dog lead when used in this way.
This lead can also be used as a traditional lead by attaching one end to one of the rings on the lead - this will then form a handle. This gives you a multi-function lead where you can use it as a double clip lead, to attach to a collar only as a standard lead, or to tether your dog to a stable platform.
The leads are made of very strong fabric, are double thickness and highly reflective. The clasps are also high quality and provide a firm attachment to any harness or collar.
They are 2.1 metres in length and this is an ample length for most situations. They do not absorb a lot of water so they will not get heavy or need excessive water removal when wet.
The leads come in five different colours including Black, orange, Neon yellow, blue, and pink and these colours are a great match for our front fix dog harnesses. Just choose the colour you want and we'll ship one out from the UK with or without a dog harness purchase.
