Bred as hunting dogs, it’s tricky to train dachshunds out of their chasing habits on walks. Unfortunately, because they stop dogs suddenly and firmly, retractable and fixed leashes can strain a doxie’s long back and neck during all that running around. A softer halt is safer, which is where the Bungee Leash comes in. Made from a tough, fabric-covered cord, it provides just enough give to slow dogs down without jerking them, absorbing the shock of their movement. The slight resistance also acts as a deterrent to pulling, ultimately training dogs to tug less over time!
