Knot-a-long® Leash

A couple of weeks ago, Preston’s puggle buddy Bruschi talked about his new Wacky Walkr® Urban leash in his blog. It is a short elastic leash that is perfect for dogs who like to pull. Living in a city (with a real wacky walker like Preston), Mommy especially appreciates a short leash that allows her more control when walking on busy streets. Mommy would like to share another great short leash option – Knot-a-long® leash by Ruffwear.
The handle of this leash is very comfortable to hold on to. The material is extremely lightweight yet durable. The length of the leash is 2.5 feet (it is not elastic) and great for keeping Preston by mommy’s side (as seen in Preston’s NYC trip).
Does Knot-a-long® leash magically transform Preston into a perfect walker? Not quite…but here is Preston’s best “on-leash” walk.

  1. I was wondering how you got Preston so well trained?
    I saw in your earlier posts that he went to puppy school, but my puggle is now too old for that. Do you have a certain trick like a clicker or anything? Im desperate to train my boy because he is sooo naughty!
    Please Please do you ahve any tips? Im sure you get this all the time!

  2. You are too funny, Preston! We wish we could go walkies and carry our leashes! What fun that would be!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

    it makes me so nervous watching preston bc he looks so much like mr. puggle and i am just ready to see him dash off for rabbit or into traffic. i could NEVER walk mr. p off leash. ever. never ever.

    preston you are such a good doggie! thanks for the tip on the leash too.

    Oh Preston! I think your Mommy is supposed to hold the leash, not you! BOL!

    To Preston’s Mommy- my daddy hates my Wacky Walkyr leash and now wants this one! He doesn’t like how the one I have SPRINGS into action. Looks like we’ll be making yet another purchase!

    Hugs and Licks, Bruschi

    Oh I forgot to ask….what size did you get, small or large? Does it work like the WW one… body weight?

    That’s so amazing! My puggle can’t even go out the door without me holding him back… He needs some good training…

    I’m shocked that you’re able to do this. I don’t trust my dogs (both puggles) to stay by my side — especially if they were to see a squirrel or another animal. How are you able to keep him by your side without a leash given that puggles have the hound (beagle side) in them. Once they hone in on a scent there’s no paying attention to anyone. My dogs walk very well on their leash but I don’t trust to do it without a leash. So I am thoroughly impressed.

  8. Hey Preston! My mom decided to get me a blog just like yours! Tell your mommy thanks for the idea!

    Wow! Preston I walk right next to human Granny but she holds the leash at all times. Sometimes human Papa lets me run with my doggy friend Rhino the Beagle, off the leash but only for a little bit and late at night when no cars are coming into the parking lot. Squirrels go to bed early and I don’t get distracted. Human Granny does not like it. But I do listen to human Papa pretty well. Snicker! Snicker! You are so well behaved. I think that this would get on human Granny’s last nerve. BOL! Have a Barking Great day….♥
    Licks & Wags, Ariel ♥

  10. Preston, I just saw your handsome face on Dogs 101! You were the perfect representation of the Puggle Bark & Howl! We recognized you by your Cool-It bandana. My parents are so proud of you. We are glad to know a Puggle Celebrity!

    Bruiser has the Walky Walkr that I got at Woofstock (large Toronto dog festival). It is wonderful and keeps him in check. Normally I use an exstensible leash as he likes to follow his nose and it gives him more freedom and it is safe where I walk him.
