Tac Leash is a leash for dogs with a design based on the one for the leashes that are attached to canines during military operations. Each leash has two padded handles—one for you to hold and another that'll rest near the dog's collar—with a shock-absorbing bungee cord, coated in abrasion-resistant nylon, in between. This particular type of leash has been made to suit dogs of all shapes and sizes and comes in two different military-inspired shades.
The cost of Tac Leash is $19.99 and the shipping is FREE!
To get started with your Tac Leash, you'll need to first use its durable metal clip to attach it to the collar your dog is wearing.
Once your leash is attached to your dog's collar, you can grab onto the handle at the opposite end of the leash that's been padded for your comfort. Alternatively, if you want to keep a closer-than-average grip on your dog for any reason, you can instead grab the padded handle that's closer to the dog's collar.
Finally, after you've got a firm grip on one of your leash's handles, you can walk, jog or run with your dog as you normally would. If you want to let them off-leash for a while, you'll simply need to undo the metal clip you attached to their collar at the beginning.
The major difference between the Tac Leash and standard dog leashes lies in the addition of the shock-absorbing bungee cord that makes up most of the lead. With this bungee cord, you'll be able to pull your dog gently forward or back when necessary, without creating any sort of choking sensation around their neck. If your dog suddenly jolts their leash with an abrupt movement or a quick change in direction, this cord will also absorb the effects of that, so neither you nor your dog will become uncomfortable. Furthermore, each cord is coated in nylon to help prevent it from snapping or otherwise getting damaged.
As alluded to above, the Tac Leash comes in two different military-inspired shades, including tactical black and camo green. If you have two dogs, you may want to get one of them a black leash and the other a green one, so you'll be unlikely to get them mixed up. Having their own leash may be pleasing to each dog, as they'll be able to recognize their specific scent on their leash.
This leash is meant to be used by dogs of all shapes and sizes, and the gentle amount of control it'll provide will likely help you discipline even highly unruly dogs. Your leash will attach to your dog's existing collar, so you won't need to be concerned about it failing to fit around your dog's neck.
The metal clip attached to each of these leashes is more durable than a clip made out of plastic. That means it'll be unlikely to break and cause your dog to be running loose with just its collar, no matter how much the dog tugs on their leash. Along the same lines, the nylon material used to coat the handles and the body of each lead is abrasion-resistant, so it'll be unlikely to rip or get worn down quickly.
If you use a standard lead to walk your dog, you might notice that the handle feels uncomfortably scratchy against your skin after a while, which may cause you to cut your dog's walk short. Similarly, your dog may experience a choking sensation when you pull on their standard fabric lead, which may make them less likely to enjoy a long walk, too. Fortunately, your Tac Leash's padded handles will feel more comfortable against your skin, and this leash's flexible, extendable bungee cord will give your dog a bit more room to comfortably move.
A dog who escapes from its leash may get into things in the outdoor environment that it shouldn't, or it may even fight with other animals that are out and about. The Tac Leash will help keep your canine safe from those predicaments, though, as there's almost no chance that the leash will detach itself from their collar. There's also little chance that you'll drop the leash, due to the padded grip provided by its handles, even if you and your dog are running along at a fairly quick pace.
If you've got two or three dogs to walk, but only one of these leashes, you'll be able to attach the dogs together with other leashes or ties to get around this conundrum. Once the dogs are attached together, side by side, just attach your Tac Leash to the middle dog's collar and use it to control your small group of dogs. Due to the strength of this type of leash, you'll be able to keep control of all of them without ending up flat on your face.
While the amount of force that each of these leashes applies to an animal is appropriate for even the smallest of dogs, it may be too much for a cat's comfort. If you were to pull a cat forward or back by using your Tac Leash's bungee cord, the cat might feel overwhelmed, and due to their lighter weight, they might move more than is desired. In the event that you'd like to walk your cat or another animal that's typically smaller than a dog, it may be best to look for a shorter, slimmer leash.
The bungee cord within each of these leashes has been designed to last a long time without snapping, but it may eventually snap after you've used the leash for several years. If that occurs, you'll need to get yourself and your dog out of the way quickly, so it doesn't snap against one of you. You may also have to round up your dog if they've used the situation as an opportunity to run off-leash.
If you're holding on to one of your Tac Leash's handles, but want to hang onto the other one instead, it's a good idea not to take both hands off the leash to switch. Instead, keep holding onto the first handle with one hand while you grab the other handle with your free hand. That way, you'll be limiting your dog's chances to escape and run off somewhere. If you're not holding your handle of choice with your dominant hand (which will give you more control), you can remedy this by putting both hands on that handle and then removing your non-dominant hand.
