A Most Useful Dog-Walking Tool

The Multisak

I’m always on the lookout for products to make my life easier.  Some time ago, I had purchased the Multisak, made by Freeplay, to use when I walk Toto.  It attaches to your dog leash and can hold a variety of items.  They have a YouTube video that shows how to attach it to your leash but also a nicely illustrated guide on their website here.

Today was the first time that I actually sat down and tried to figure out how to use it.  It seems to be easily configured for those who use a retractable leash.  I’m not one of those people.  I much prefer a regular leash.  When I tried to attach it as illustrated, the sak slid freely down to Toto’s harness.  Well, that wasn’t going to work.  So I ended up putting the leash handle into the side slot, as directed, and then folding it back and looping the little tab through it.  That held it firmly up at the leash handle and still let me grip the handle and “accordion fold”  the excess length in the leash without too much trouble.

There are two big storage pockets in the multisak.  On one side, you have a perfect spot for putting things like kleenex and waste bags.  There are Velcro tabs so you can easily open and close the pocket with one hand.

The back storage pocket.

The other pocket is a little more secure and I didn’t hesitate to put my iPhone in there along with my keys.  There is an individual pocket designed for hand sanitizers but they would have to be the mini bottles.  It also says you can put in small water bottles and I think it is roomy enough.  I just wouldn’t want the extra weight.  There is an elastic cord attached to a clip and I’m not sure if that’s for your keys or not.  I imagine it must be and if so, you could just clip it to your key chain and slip the whole kaboodle into the pocket.

The whole contraption worked great.  I had forgotten how pleasurable it was to walk to music.  I’m sure we were a sight to behold as I strutted around the neighborhood to tunes like “Eye of the Tiger” and “Smoke on the Water.”    Toto probably wondered why the pace had picked up but I think you just have to walk to the music’s beat.

Time to rest, Mom!

Now it’s time to put my feet up and read over my Cabletta sweater instructions again in preparation for tonight’s knitting class.  I hope I stopped at a good point and won’t find the rest of the class has surged way ahead of me when I arrive tonight.
