I was struggling to restrain my 170lb puppy at a pet convention when I was approached by a man offering to help. With a nothing-to-lose attitude I agreed to let him place his leash on Jax, our English Mastiff. Up until this point I was feeling defeated. There were hundreds of people all in awe of Jax and approaching him to take photos, we passed by dozens of vendors who all claimed to have a strong enough harness solution which we had paid for and returned. Jax is never on a leash but this event is out of his normal routine, so he was pulling a lot.
Anyway - I was shown how easy it was to lace the LeadMeLeash around his chest, through the hoop and once under his armpit area and POOF done. The man insisted I use his leash for a little while then pass by and tell him my thoughts. As soon as I had the LeadMeLeash in my hand, I was able to hold Jax with practically no force whatsoever. Since only moments earlier I was being dragged with 2 arms on his former leash I was hesitant in becoming amazed so I looked deeper into the placement and the quality of the LeadMeLeash. The placement is perfect. Its nothing new, only perfected. Any good quality newer age harness uses a similar style in wrapping the dogs chest, but the thickness of the leash and its quality makes the difference. The LeadMeLeash is a very well constructed woven material, and it was clearly strong enough to hold Jax. Jax was in no pain and had no strain whatsoever when in the LeadMeLeash. Taking it 1 step further I tied the handler-side into a knot leaving myself with a close-grip option and the full leash/handle option. For me, that worked perfectly. I was literally able to hold Jax with only 2 fingers while walking him through a huge crowd. For the first time I was able to walk Jax on a proper leash with no pulling or tugging from either of us.
I highly recommend LeadMeLeashes ( leadmeleashes.com) for any dog, large or small. You and your furry friend will thank them later. I was also pleased to learn this is a family venture of animal lovers and their leashes are handmade in the USA.
