The 10 function FREEDOM Lead was designed by Jessica MacDonald to work in conjunction with the patented Freedom No-Pull Harness.
The two most popular training leashes are the 4-configuration and the 10-configuration. Both leashes have a single floating handle and a connection on either end so you can clip to the front and back of the harness simultaneously or just the back. The 4-configuration is 3' when connected to the front and back and the 10-configuration is 4.5' when connected to the front and back. Additionally you can remove the handle on the 10-configuration. So the 10-configuration leash is 1.5' longer than the 4-configuration leash.
Most people select the 4-configuration because it is shorter and keeps the dog really close. I find that people who are taller or like the dog to have more space in front prefer the 10-configuration leash.
The 10-configuration lead features everything you love about the basic 4-configuration training lead with the advanced functionality that you can't live without. With a detachable handle, The FREEDOM Lead also has many other configurations listed below. This is the last leash you will ever need!
5/8" Width for dogs under 35/40 lbs
1" Width for dogs over 35/40 lbs or puppies growing that will be over this weight.
(1) Traffic handle all by itself
(2) Connect the Traffic Handle to the stationary ring at end of leash and use it as an 8' leash.
(3) Fold leash in half. Clip one end of leash to your dog and the other end to the stationary ring. Clip the Trafffic Handle to the floating ring. This makes a 4' lead.
(4) To create a 2 foot leash, continue from step two, slide the floating o-ring towards you and reconnect it to the bolt snap that is connected to your dog's collar.
(5) Place lead around shoulder/back and clip (1) end to floating ring and other end to dog. This makes a hands free lead.
(6) Place lead around waist and clip (1) end to floating ring and other end to dog. This makes a hands free lead.
(7) To create a temporary 7 foot tie-out, simply attach leash to your dog and wrap the handle end of leash around a pole, fence post, railing or small tree and attach both snaps in the handle to the floating o-ring.
(8) To create a temporary 4 foot tie-out, repeat step 4 and attach bolt snap in the handle to the fixed o-ring at the base of your leash.
(9) Leash and Collar Combo- Use it as a temporary leash and collar. Attach the bolt snap to the floating o-ring, creating a loop. Slip the loop over your dog's head , pull slightly as to gather excess and use it as a slip lead to get your dog home safely.
(10) Walk two dogs at once. Attach the bolt snap in handle of your leash to one dog, attach the other bolt snap to your other dog. Connect the traffic Handle to the floating ring.
