Running with the dogs

If you're the proud owner of two or more dogs and you like to walk and run with them, you know that it can be challenging to keep multiple dogs on separate leashes headed in the same direction. After facing this challenge for over a year, we recently found a great solution that goes by the curious name of Knot-a-Coupler. The Knot-a-Coupler, made by RuffWear, is made from stretchy bungee cord material and allows you to attach one leash to two collars. For us, this little gadget was a great find - it allows our boys, who both like to lead and can't stand to get more than three feet apart, to stay side by side during our daily walk/run. Sure, if you have two strong dogs, they may still manage to pull you down the street, but at least they'll be heading in the same direction!

So, where can you find this cool product? You can purchase directly from the RuffWear website, but I would recommend heading over to my favorite outdoor dog site - Backcountry K9 - where the Knot-a-Coupler is currently on sale. And don't forget - whenever you order from Backcountry K9, enter the discount code 5HSJC to receive 5% off your order AND Backcountry K9 will donate 5% of your purchase to The Humane Society of Jackson County every time you use the discount code!
