it makes walks much more enjoyable Oct 29, 2011
By Kris Vonderahe
"God is a refuge for us"
The seller was Lucy A Wonder Dog. There are two sizes for these couplers: small and large. I own the small. I have 2 Chihuahuas: one 4 pounds, and the other 6 pounds. It works great for them. One dog is younger and pulls more (he is the heavier one), so I shortened his side to about 8 inches. The other dog is a couple years older and a heels (so he gets the longer end). This way the younger one can't jerk the older one around as much. It works well.
The coupler swivels, which means my leash doesn't get all twisted.
The alternative was to continue to walk them on 2 leashes, which would get tangled (and that was a pain, and walks were not as fun for me or them).
Also, the coupler is much safer. Since I only have to manage one leash for 2 dogs, I can pick-up both dogs much easier if there is an aggressive dog loose (or, I can fend-off the aggressive dog with my other hand). And I have had to do this a few times in my neighborhood.
In order to keep the dogs from getting tangled in it, I have to hold-up the leash if it is slack. Most of the time it is not slack, since the dogs are walking in front, or I have the leash shortened if they are walking beside me.
I have owned this coupler by Sporn since May 2011, and I would purchase it again (but since it is so well made, I don't think I will have to buy a replacement). They nylon is sturdy and the hardware is metal (no plastic parts).

Great For Little Fellas Oct 31, 2011
After reading reviews for the Sporn Double Dog Coupler, I decided to take a chance on the extra small version since some of the reviewers stated the larger one didn't work well with smaller dogs. We have a 10lb Morkie and a 6lb Yorkie and let me tell you, this works great. The dogs swap positions constantly and their leases don't get tangled or wrapped around the other during the walk. So much more fun walking and having a free hand now.

Great coupler! Sep 30, 2012
Bought this for my two miniature dachshunds averaging about 10lbs a piece. Using two leashes was not working so I searched for a coupler. Came across this but in med-XL. Read through reviews stating it would be too big for small dogs. I listened and bought this one, the xs. Recieved and it looked like it would be too short but when I walked both dogs with it fully extended it was a good length. The main reason I bought this one over others is because you can adjust the space between dogs. I plan on using this at a large crowded event, so it'll be easier to walk them while they are side by side on one leash. I didn't have a problem with the two getting tangled, they can switch sides easily. My youngest did sort of pull my oldest around a little so I'd advise using harnesses instead of collars as a collar could be pulled over the head easily. Overall I highly Reccomend!

Works with Dogs That Walk Close Together - Mine Don't Mar 11, 2012
By S. Rigby
I thought I finally found what I needed, a double coupler for an expandable leash. But for this to work with my dogs, I have a lot of training to do with them. I do like that it is light weight, so my 3 pound and 6 1/2 pound dogs aren't weighted down when I attach it. I also like that you can adjust it so that one side is longer than the other for the dog that is more of the roamer. I adjusted it so that the larger male dog was able to sniff in the weeds beside the road, and the smaller female dog could walk daintily beside me. Unfortunately it didn't adjust enough for that. It is approximately 28" long and by pulling up a little lever and pulling the strap through, you then just click the lever back down and the length is secured. I have adjusted it so that the bigger dog gets 24" of extension, and the little, more well behaved dog only gets 4", but when I adjust it that way, the bigger dog trips on it and the smaller dog is pulled along like a dog train has come to town.
I am still trying to figure out the best way to use this without inhibiting the male dog's love of weed sniffing.

Double delight. Nov 21, 2012
By lisa Bunny
Love this coupler. Now I can walk both of my small ( 4 and 6 lbs. dogs, and not get the leads tangled. These are good quality, and arrived in the mail fast. I am in a wheelchair, so it is important to be able to keep good control over my dogs and not have them tangled, and these work great.
