I am so impressed with the double handle leash. I walk two 45lb dogs every morning with the leash wrapped around my hand and fingers - one big "tug" can almost cut off blood supply! This morning I tried the double handle leash (one dog on either side) what a relief, complete control and they walked beautifully! When I was out of the path of joggers, etc ., then I could let them have the length of the leash, one at a time. You have control! This is huge for me!
