The walking contraption

The Man had this idea, let's make a big coupler for the dogs with a tie out and leash.
Let's see how this goes:
Out the front door

Man holding on for dear life as we head down to the beach

Man at a stand still cause he can't hold on any more

Phod pulling so much he is walking sideways

The good: When at the beach we can let them both off tied together and they stay around. Phod can't swim as far when tied to Lee (and when he is swimming he can't pull her back into the water).

To work on: Pulling when they are walking on it. The pull a lot more than normal. They get tangled a lot (sometimes repeatedly around the same tree). You have to be fast or you get rope burn when they go around your legs.

We will keep trying and see if this can work!


  1. Mind you that is some pulling by Phod. Hope it does work. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Looks like you need a tractor and till some groung for a garden with that kind of work, Heeheehee.

  3. That is a great idea to make them a till, I will keep that in mind for next year!
    Phod sure can pull. It is worse if there are deer!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Hi Guys,

    That's a lot of pulling are they practicing for Santa and his Sleigh?! :)

    Cosmo (my buddy next door) and I walk and go running together - we both have a harness, Mum likes the front clip harness as I don't pull, then she uses a separator that she attaches to both of our harnesses and it has a central ring that attaches to the lead - we don't get tangled and it works really well - hope this helps :)

    Let me know if you'd like me to explain it a little more :)

    Have fun,

    Your pal Snoopy :)
