Designed without a clip for a collar, this lead can be looped directly round the dog’s neck or as by manipulating into a figure of 8 as a type of muzzle. This is a great lead for training and controlling dogs. Created so it could quickly be “slipped” onto a dog and be easily carried. To safety use, the lead should be positioned over your dog’s head with the sliding ring nearest the owner’s leg, this will allow the ring to slide up and down freely. When the lead is slack, as it should be at all times, the ring will drop freely down the lead under the dog’s head. If you walk with your dog on your left side then looking from the front of the dog the lead will go over the dog’s neck in a clockwise direction, down the opposite side, under the throat to the sliding link near your leg.
