The second installment of “Learning the Basics - Why a Thumb Tab” Interested in being better connected with your dog? Want a leash that will train you as well as your dog? The Trip Less Trainer dog leash was created with all dog owners in mind. We are delivering a product that alleviates most if not all headaches caused by traditional leashes. By replacing the traditional 6' leash with a shortened thumb tab leash, it now provides a better connection and more advantages. The excess material that once caused tripping and tangling by you or your dog is now gone but what really makes the Trip Less Trainer so great is the thumb tab. The thumb tab will provide you with a stronger, safer grip when walking or training your dog. With the combination of a shortened leash and thumb tab, the leash will now consistently enforce perfect behavior for walking or heeling.
