Q: has anyone bought the leash and cuff quick connect straps wondering how they work in real life

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Found Bruiser,at least that's what he said his name was, and his dog Zeus at Chickamauga Lake in Harrison,Tn. Chillaxing in a big way . Chair in the water,shades, brew in hand,dog in his lap. I stood at the edge of the water and asked if I could take his photo. He said help yourself,so I did. I took several photos after Zeus settled down. He was quite aggressive at first,which accounts for the chain no doubt.Bruiser actually began to howl at Zeus when I took this photo.The look on this dogs face was priceless.Mine too probably. Just when you think you have seen,and heard it all.
