I have tried every option on the market for my stubborn, fearful dog who pulls and wants to walk where she chooses. The wacky walker has been the answer to our problems. Our dog walks MUCH better on the leash and it is much easier to control her and guid her. I even bought two so my husband and I could each have our own color :)
I highly recommend this leash!

Leash rates a five. Price rates a one. The leash for our 16 pound mutt reduces the shock of her deciding to go in some other direction. It also effectively causes her to stay by our side because the more she tries to go the more tension on the leash. Nylon material is strong and well made. The clasp to collar clip is strong and very adequate. With regard to the price of the leash, it just seems a little pricey, but I suppose you get what you pay for and with that I will post my rating in the narrative to a five and fully admit, for me it was a tough call to rate the Wacky walk'r.

I have a hairless chinese crested weighing about 17lbs. She would pull on my shoulder. This leash lets her do the work and not my shoulder. Best leash I've used.

This is the best leash for our very active and pulling nine month old Berger Picard puppy. With this leash we feel better walking her that she won't get lose from us. The resistance of the leash works in a positive way to keep her under our control. The leash is well made and seems like it will last a very long time. Love that donations to animal charities are part of the sales. That makes picking a color very hard. So many good causes.

I bought my first Wacky Walkr 5 years ago when I wanted to control my 3 dogs (2 Labradoodles, 1 20# Yorkie) on a walk. My dogs are trained to walk to my side (Cesar Milan way) and generally very good on walks. But when they saw a squirrel or rabbit they would pull and with 2 70+ dogs pulling, it was hard on my shoulders. The Wacky Walkr helped a lot and I loved them so much I bought them for Christmas for every dog in our family (8 dogs!).
My daughter loves them for taking her Pit Bull out for a run while she rides her bike. The dog weighs almost as much as her and can easy sheer her bike by pulling hard on the leash, but the Wacky Walkr keeps him from pulling and throwing her from the bike.
My brother used the Wacky Walkr to train his Golden Retriever who use to pull on walks. Now he doesn't even need to use a leash because his dog automatically walks just at his side.
These are great leashes, last for years and I love the bright colors. The only one to ever break was the one my daughter uses for her Pit Bull in Mexico, but they're subjected to very hot temperatures and a ocean humidity, even then they last over a year.

I have shown dogs professionally at AKC shows. I have bred and owned Golden Retrievers for decades so I am an experienced dog owner. I have had to curtail dog related activity due to rotator cuff surgery, anterior cervical discectomy with fusion (neck) and lumbar discectomy. Let's just say walking one 80-90 pound dog was torture for me.
I decided to try the WackyWalk'r first with my strong male and things went well. So well that I decided to try the Crazy Coupl'r that I purchased at the same time (just in case these things really worked) Well, they really work. They work so well that I am now able to walk the male and one female every day for 30-60 minutes AND not have to use drugs, heating pad, ice pack or see my doctor! Nothing short of amazing. Truly. I am so grateful that someone designed and implemented this idea. It has given me back my ability to be outdoors with my dogs and get my exercise while walking them through the park. Fantastic! I encourage everyone looking to stop the quick jerk/rip of the shoulder and neck and back when your dog tries to take off with you to try this product.
I will end this with only one note of caution. This doesn't stop your dog from trying to pull you or take off at a dead run when they see a squirrel or rabbit or other dog. That would be a miracle. It merely slows their progress by making them have to work very hard to get to the thing they are trying to reach or chase. I still must be prepared and keep close eye out for these things. And be able to stand my ground (I'm only 130 pounds 5'5") when two dogs weighing 150 pounds together try to take off after a squirrel. That being said, my legs are strong enough as are my arms and back and I only needed this Wacky Walk'r to stop the quick jerk and tear motion that pulling does to my neck, shoulders, etc. It does this perfectly~

I used to walk too x-large dogs at the same time, til I had an accident when they both pulled together and I went face down on the sidewalk. My wife saw the wacky walkr mentioned in Simple Life and suggested I get one and walk them one at a time. The 51 pound Spaniel still oves to lunge at noisy trucks, but his enthusiasm is fading and my hands, wrists and shoulders are feeling much better than they felt than while using the reel-type leashes. Now he barely utters a peep and sometimes just glances around at the vehicles without bothering to bark or lunge. I look forward to seeing reviews of the extension to decide if I could walk both of them (the other is an 80-pound Lab 2-year old "puppy") and also to seeing reports of wear and tear; the Lab occasionally will try to carry the black lead in his mouth, so I wonder what the life-span is of these products.

My wife had a terrible time with our dog jerking the lease (a rather energetic pup) but the wacky walker has made her walks an absolute pleasure.

Not really sure if it will stretch 6 feet but it does stretch against the dog, and seems to slow her a bit. I have fibromyalgia so it does help my hand by lessening the tension on me, when the dog pulls me around the neighborhood, thank goodness I got a Jack Russell Terrier, shes 15 lbs and all muscle and 100% go. I need a nap

I really like the leash but wish the handle were a little bigger. It's difficult to get your hand in and out with gloves/mittens on or if you have a big hand (like my husband has). I love the clasp!
