I don't do much walking my dogs on a lead as I live close to a park but I do have to walk down a short road to get there. Now my problem is this- Dexter likes to surge ahead and Bonnie like to stay close to me and circle me. I'm sure if any of my neighbours are watching they must be laughing at me as I must look a comical sight trying to manage my little and large dogs and dancing down the road with them! When they are off-lead they are so good and don't stray far from me.

If you want to concentrate on teaching Dexter to walk nicely then it could be worth trying putting Bonnie on a lead attached to a belt as she stays close to you anyway and that gives you both hands for Dexter. Not sure how that would work with the circling but its a way of freeing up your hands to work with one dog while the other is safe.

Ive had both dogs on a belt if Im carless as I have to walk the dogs and two boys that firmly need their hands held as we live on a busy A road. The dogs were great and just trotted behind us.

Interesting thought. This is one of the questions that cropped up in my second puppy discussion with hubby :) I struggle sometimes with just one dog, her flinger and ball, my gloves, putting my keys away. Phew ! Then add into the equation a second poo ! I see a distater looming :D:D:D

I make my own leads, and walk mine on a double ended lead 12 feet long. I have them trained to walk on my left on a slack lead, the long lead means they can move around and change places without tangling the lead, but most of the time they walk that close to each other you would think they where joined together.:)

my girls all get walked on my left, i have the double ended leads too, my only issues are the leads getting tangled.


i also do the same a Shirley, and attach them round my waist sometimes.


Echo tends to walk off lead more now and walk on my right when off lead which i accidentally taught her as i hold the others on my left and throw the ball with my right hand.
