Absolutely… Has you ever felt like your dog almost pulled your arm out of its socket, hurt your wrist, or even a burn from trying to hold the leash while your dogs runs unexpectedly?
This is where the thumb tab comes in to play. The thumb tab allows you to consistently place your hand in the natural position every time you take hold of your leash. Why is that? The design allows your hand to be in its natural resting state at your side. Meaning when you walk, your thumb natural rests on top of your hand facing the sky. For you, this allows the pack leader (YOU) faster response to correct the dog and unbeatable control without feeling like your fighting with your dog for control.
