Try This Tuesday: Jessica Can’t Take Her Dogs on a Walk Without THIS Leash Coupler

Note from Collin:

Do you have a product you love? We definitely have many favorite products here on the Hip2Save Team, and thought it would be FUN to share some of them with you! I personally love product recommendations and I’ve also had a few requests from readers, so I have asked each member of the team to think of products they love (cosmetics, kitchen gadgets etc.) and to write up a post that will be shared here every Tuesday. Jessica, my sidekick, is sharing one of her favorites…

Hey everyone! It’s Jessica here, one of Collin’s sidekicks!

If you have more than one dog, you know the struggle of trying to take them both on a walk by yourself. Well, maybe you don’t? Maybe you are one of the lucky ones with well-behaved dogs that walk nicely on their leashes? In that case, I envy you. 😉

Well behaved? HA!

With a rambunctious Siberian husky puppy and an equally energetic mini Australian shepherd, I was in WAYYY over my head when trying to take them both on a walk. They would always get the leashes tangled together… get the leashes tangled around themselves… and even get ME all tangled up. We were a hot mess.

TWICE I got so tangled up that I fell over. I’m sure the neighbors appreciated the free entertainment. 😂

My life completely changed when I saw someone walking their dogs with this leash coupler. I then set out to get myself one, and taking my crazy dogs on walks has never been the same since!

Here are all of the features that make me LOVE this leash coupler:
  • It’s super easy to use – simply hook each end onto each dogs’ harness and go!
  • There’s a padded neoprene handle on each side of the coupler, allowing you to control each dog individually if needed.
  • Reflective stitching on each leash helps you to be seen when walking your dogs at night.
  • And best of all… the no-tangle swivel means that no matter how much your dogs run around and switch sides, the leashes won’t tangle!

There are two options when buying this product from Amazon. You can buy just the leash coupler and use your own standard leash (though you may want to use a short leash so that your dogs aren’t so far away from you when you add in the length of the coupler as well).

OR – you can buy this one, like I did, that includes both the coupler and a 2 ft detachable lead with a padded handle. The padded handle is SUPER nice if you have a dog that pulls – no fabric biting into your hand! And I personally find that the 2 ft length for the lead is perfect when combined with the adjustable 18-24 inch long coupler lead on each dog.

I know that there are many different leash couplers on the market that all probably work great! This Vaun Duffy brand one is the only type I have personally used though, and I highly recommend it. (I must not be the only pet parent that’s impressed, as they currently have 4.7 out of 5 stars on Amazon)!

Now I actually enjoy taking my dogs on walks. I only need to use one hand to keep 2 dogs in control without any tangles. Instead of needing to head back home after a 10 minute walk totally frustrated and exhausted, we can be out for an hour with no issues. AND now my neighbors actually believe I’m a totally put-together dog-mama. 😃

Note from Jessica: This is just an honest post that was not sponsored by the manufacturer. I just really like using this leash, and wanted to share it with you all. Enjoy!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
