I was using two smaller pet leashes on my two dogs but felt that I needed something stronger so I invested in the Animal Planet Retractable Pet Leash with Bag Holder. At first it felt much bulkier than my usual so I knew it would take a while to get use to it. But I really never could handle it that well. The trigger for retraction did not work well and I was always afraid that I would not be able to handle my animals as quickly as I wanted to because I was struggling with the trigger. I really never had to use the light so that wasn't a real advantage. But I have to admit that I do like the idea of having the plastic bag holder on the side because I didn't always have a pocket to carry a bag to pick up after my dogs. So the best thing about this leash to me was the bag holder. Other than that, I probably would never have bought this product. It is entirely too bulky and hard to handle as far as I am concerned and I never use it as I have gone back to using my smaller pet leashes when we walk.
Animal Planet also did some filming at Off The Leash where thedogs were encouraged to use the doggy playground. Of course, sheacknowledged, "you never know how much they'll use" of the footagein the show.

On Monday, October 24, 2011, a very unique graduation took place; eleven prison inmates and six rescued shelter dogs listened to distinguished speakers and received certificates. The inmates graduated from the New Leash on Life USA program while the dogs successfully passed the Canine Good Citizen program. Keynote remarks were provided by Judge Ellen Ceisler of the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas and congratulatory speeches were given by Warden Karen Bryant and Commissioner Louis Giorla of Philadelphia Prisons Systems. Family, friends, the New Leash on Life USA board members, and trainers were all present for the graduation. . Keep your tiny pooch safe and sound in the car with Animal Planet's dog booster seat, an easy-to-install device with plush lining and a leash attachment so your little pup doesn't wander or slide around.The inmates have workshops three times a week that focus on life skills or job skills training. The classes cover everything from anger management and team building to resume writing and preparation for job interviews. A certified dog trainer provides training to the inmates twice a week. This training covers socialization, basic obedience, crate training, clicker training, walking on a leash, appropriate play with other dogs, and basic commands and tricks (i.e., sit, stay, leave it, down). A veterinary technician provides a weekly workshop on dog health, animal medicine, the benefits of neutering and spaying, illnesses, and basic hygiene (i.e., shampooing, brushing, and cleaning the teeth and ears).In addition to traveling papers, your dog needs food, bowls, blankets, leashes, a pooper-scooper and plastic bags, and any medication he may be taking. To avoid unpleasantness of traveling with a dog with diarrhea, you can bring some of your own water from home and make the switch over to local water a gradual one. Don't neglect your dog's grooming while you're on the road; bring along any necessary grooming supplies. Your dog's favorite toys and blanket or pillow will be familiar and comforting to him. Make sure your dog is wearing a flat collar (and never a choke collar) with identification tags listing your home address, a neighbor's phone number and a number at your destination. In the event that he gets lost, bring along a good photo. And it never hurts to have a canine first-aid kit with you.
