We have arrived at the fourth week of Multiple Pet Mania Month and the final giveaway, the Umbilical Belt! You humans need your hands like we dogs need our noses, so a hands free leash is a wonderful invention, and I love the red color too!
I took a good look at this Umbilical Belt before Mom and I gave it a try. We were both a bit skeptical at first, but it sure looks and feels like a sturdy piece of equipment. The belt comes in two widths, two or three inches. We opted for the two inch belt.
If you walk or run with your dog or multiple dogs on leash, your hands are tied up, and handling the leashes can cause you to change your posture. The Umbilical Belt creates stability around your waist which means keeps you from straining your neck, shoulders, arms, and hands. The belt also helps to strengthen your core while you walk or run by adjusting your body to direct your dog’s movement.
The Umbilical belt can be used for one or multiple dogs, but I guess the human wears the belt, not the dog…sorry about the confusion. Mom is starting out using it for just one dog at a time. The O-ring swivel prevents multiple leashes from tangling, and it’s built strong to handle pulling and jerking. Bailie and I are a bit wild when it comes to spotting critters, but the belt lowers the center of gravity to the hips or waist making stopping your dog much easier. We haven’t tested out a quick stop yet, but I’m sure it is coming up soon!
