You could also use a long leather belt as a leash. If you have an old, spare belt that's just batting around or an old belt from the costume pile, pull it out and make it into the leash you need. With this method, you should make sure that you fasten the belt using the holes in the belt; attaching it any other way could harm the dog. Push the end under the collar and then through the buckle.
Dog Leashes and Collars - Wingo Belts
I have three dogs that I like to walk at one time. It can be a challenge with so many leashes. My dogs are well behaved and do not pull but I like the comforting thought that I can grab one of my dogs or a neighborhood dog with my hands now free. The belt is great quality and very comfortable.

HARRIETT, a 4-year-old, 55-pound Australian shepherd, jumped on her dog bed and bit down on what looked like a seat belt with a leash attached. She played with it as she watched Joseph Perrulli lace up his sneakers for a run, ready to dash outside with him the second he stood up.

Which One is Best?
This, of course, is really up to you, but in my professional dog-walking opinion (with my dogs, not yours), I would suggest a belted leash for all occasions. The only time I might suggest a corded leash is if you have a small dog where it’s weight won’t be an issue if it starts running around the neighbors legs or an older dog that, well, doesn’t really run around at all. But I have to say, whichever one you go with, get a quality leash. Remember, you get what you pay for and if you get a cheap Walmart special, expect it to have issues sooner than later. This is your dog and, to some, a family member. You’ll spend a LOT of money on a proper carseat for you child, why not spend a little extra on a safety device for your pet?Ruffwear is one of the best manufacturers of dog supplies out there.
