When my buddy Jeff Ferrand owner of Alpha Innovations and producer of my Jaw Jacker Knuckle Duster told me about his idea for The Tactical Dog Leash I kinda blew it off. Basically the idea is the Jaw Jacker with a hole on the front where you attach the supplied dog leash.

Jeff sent it to me for T&E sometime ago and it went on pile and I forgot about them. This weekend while packing to go to my parents house I tossed the
Tactical Dog Leash in the bag since I was taking my two Boston Terriers anyway. At home we don't use a leash much because we have a fenced in yard.

The first thing I did with the
TDL was examine it, both the knuckle part and the leash itself. The leash seems to be a quality run of the mill dog leash about four feet long with the traditonal quality snap on one end. On the other is a split ring through the regular handle with one end of a two headed snap on it, the other is a snap to attach to the knucles.

The first thing I thought was that the weak point was going to be that split ring. So I sat in a chair, put the leash under my foot, took the knuckles in one and and wraped the end of the leash around the other and pulled as hard as I could. I was unable to do anything to the split ring at all. As you know, at 6'2 290 I am no little boy and have huge legs.

Then I hooked up my oldest Boston Terrier Bogey who weighs around 35 lbs and being part Bulldog just loves to pull. I noticed that the knuckles provided a more comfortable grip on my hand then when the normal leash folds around it. Like the difference between doing pull ups on a bar or a loop of rope.

Most of the time when walking the boys I hold the end of the leash in my right hand with the leash running though my left hand with the dog on my left as pictured. From this positon I was surprised how easy it was to wrap the leash around my left hand once, unhook the leash from the knuckles and still retain the dog.

When I did let him run to full extension it was comfortable as well.

You actually have two great tools here, the origional Jaw Jacker design (which of course is only a collectors item and should never be used as a weapon) with an extra concentration bump, and the leash which makes a great flexible weapon.

There is no disguising what it is. It is a pair of knuckles with a dog leash attached. But that is the neat thing about it. That may just make anyone who sees it dismiss it.

One thing is for sure, if I am going to take one of the boys for a walk I know which leash I am using.
