Puppy Love - Instant Leash Trainer Review

I love my dogs but they have one bad habit in common, their inability to walk on a leash. Bella is walk-able compared with Boss, but, once she gets going she just wants to run. We have tried traditional choke collars, martingale collars and harness all with no luck. Boss just has a leash phobia. It takes me an hour just to get a collar on him, when a leash is applied he goes into freak mode and will chew it off! He has been that way since he was 8 weeks old.

When I had the opportunity to check out the Instant Leash Trainer I of course jumped on it. The Instant Trainer™ Leash uses gentle but firm resistance to discourage your dog from pulling and It attaches to any collar! What made this leash different is that it’s not a choker and doesn’t require the finesse of a harness. See the choking resistance has no effect on Bella, she will continue to pull and I am afraid will hurt herself.  Since my dogs aren’t comfortable with a leash alone, getting a harness on them is pure torture and I’ve ran into a lot of sizing issues.

The Instant Leash Trainer clips on to your dogs collar, you then adjust the D-ring down your dogs back until it rest near their back hips. At this point it will still feel like a normal collar to your dog – no added stress. Once the D-ring is positioned you will loop the leash under the dogs hip and back up through the ring. Your now ready to walk. The handle portion has a nice rubber grip and is more like an actual handle as opposed to the loop commonly found at the end of a leash.

Since Bella is still nursing I chose not to feature her photo

I found walking her much easier with the Instant Leash Trainer. As soon as she went to pull she immediately stopped in her tracks, a far cry from the dog that would try and pull herself through the choking down the road. I can now walk her with confidence that she isn’t go to injure herself or pull my arm off! Unfortunately the Instant Leash Trainer was too small for me to try it with Boss. The Instant Leash Trainer is available in sizing for small dogs under 30lbs and large dogs over 30lbs. Boss it about 100lbs and I just couldn’t wrapped it properly around his broad hips.

Overall, I am a big fan of the Instant Leash Trainer. I would like to see a little extra slack in the leash, but that might be part of the reason it worked so well.

They are pulling because the feel like they are the leaders. I have learned from dog trainers to never let the dog walk out the door in front of you and when the start pulling, shorten the leash and make them walk beside you until they slow down and always reward them with praise when they are walking correctly. Mom dog always stays with me even when not a leash.

We don't have a puppy, and our dog is wonderful on a leash, but if we ever do get a puppy, I will have to remember this trainer. :)

Sounds like something I need to try with my Molly, she hates harnesses, is fine walking on a leash if I hook it to her collar but she chokes herself when she tries to chase a squirrel or bunny or her and her sister sees another dog.
