Glo Leash

I think anyone with dogs and a small yard understands the fear involved in a late-night walk - total minefield for your shoes when you're trying to avoid the "used spots" in the dark. The Glo Leash helps you navigate with a super-bright LED on the handle so your path is illuminated. The leash itself also glows in the dark, so you and your dog are more easily visible to passing cars. The Glo Leash is $29.99 from petgadgets.

My second dogwalking fear involves walking my dogs near busy city streets. I live off one of the main retail streets in my neighborhood and there are always cars speeding by. I had a scare when I tripped over a pothole (but with preternatural grace and aplomb managed not to fall in it) and when I started to fall, I dropped my dog's leash. She, being the nervous type (where does she get it?), tried to run ahead home and I just barely managed to grab the leash before she darted off. The FreeLeash handsfree leash prevents such accidents by attaching a retractable leash to a bungee system that you wear around your waist. The FreeLeash not only frees your hands for carrying bags, but the padded waist belt absorbs shock and reduces stress on the lower back. It would be great for people with wrist injuries or arthritis. Or are clumsy. The FreeLeash is $24.99.

I use a similar belt leash thing called a BuddySystem.

The belt comes in plus sizes and has an extra bungee "lunge buster" option which has helped a lot.

Hope the dog in the top picture realises that its leash has gone over to the Dark Side.

Kat:

I like the idea of the FreeLeash - but Im afraid my dog would end up walking me instead, dragging me around where ever he wants to go.

stephen kinsley:

I would like to say i have 4 Boston terriers and they love to walk and i like the fact the leash glows makes it better to see what they are doing and what is laying around near my dogs i have to go and see if we have those around here i like that idea.
