Lol, yesterday when I went on a walk with Mambo he spotted some ducks in the local park. When I tried to hold him back, this bit snapped:

I actually managed to catch him back because he stopped by the fence, where ducks flew away. We went to DIY self and I bought a snap lock, like a carabiner type thing and fixed it to the leash. It's rock solid because it's made of 6mm forged steel and it won't ever snap.

However...

I walked my wife to work this morning with Mambo and on a way back I popped in to local co-operative store for some food. I left the dog outside tied to some kind of post. I was halfway my shopping and when I was going through shelves I thought I saw a dog strolling across the shop alley.... Guess what, it obviously was Mambo Big Grin

I have no idea how he unclipped himself from leash and I was very lucky he followed me to the shop, especially we have got him for just about week now...

What else can I say.....

So when this metal bit on your doggy's leash does break off, you can fix it with carabiner but:

a) It has to be a proper one, a security snap lock made of forged steel or a proper climbing equipment. Forget about those lightweight alloy ones made to hold your keys together in your pocket... these last 10min.

b) Most preferably it has to have some kind of lock which prevents it from unclipping itself like this one:

if it's not an threaded carabiner (like this one on a pic above) than just be VERY careful

No problem Smile

I have no idea how he actually did it. I think that when you pull it back in certain way it can be depressed by the buckle and snap open but... it's hard to do even for me. Mambo did it with his neck... I'll just wait for him to pull some rabbits out of places... Laughing

Well what can I say... He has to love shopping Big Grin

Yea, Staffordshire Houdini Terrier... Laughing

That was actually quite funny. Most of people who seen him going through automatic door and strolling in co-op just laughed Big Grin

Where did you find these small high quality ones , I have bought a walkydog for the bike and need a couple to make the lead a little longer , could only find massive climber ones or the little cheap ones you talk about here, cost is irrelevant as my little baby gets whatever she wants (apart from my beer) Big Grin
