Retractable Leashes – Please Beware!

Ok, heads up… Retractable leashes are a topic that I am quite opinionated on, but with good reason.  The article below lists several reasons why you may want to think twice before using on.  A few things that the article doesn’t cover that are of importance:

  • Injury to your rotator cuff
  • Burn injury
  • Lack of partnership between you and your dog (that’s what a walk is partially for, right?!)
  • It mentions bikers, but it’s a similar problem that I’ve faced as a runner too.


Please read this.  Worth your time.
