Default New member really appreciate some suggestions for a leash

Hello everyone! I had a brain injury 3 years ago that made my hand coordination terrible. Does anyone have any suggestions on the easiest leach to clap on? I went to a pet store and asked them this question and they sold me one that they said was easiest. The harness has rings on the sides an*on the chest there is a hook on the leash that you squeeze to*open then hook it through the ring. Its a walk right harness. turns out that this one is difficult for me. I am pretty sure i could handle a clip. Any suggestions i would really appreciate. Really would love to walk my dog on a regular bases and tack here to the dog park i have to really on my wife and the nice people at the park. There has to be something out that would help thanks!!!

Welcome Jared, great to have you join us :-)
I have been through a couple of different types of leashes for my dog, Cheynie. Cheynie is a rescue pup from Turks and Caicos and has fear issues with loud traffic noises and when she is frightened, she will try to bolt. I ended up having a harness made for her (a no-escape harness from a woman on etsy) and I am really pleased with it. It also has a D-ring on the chest piece and on the piece across her back. Most of the leashes I tried were problematic and I really needed one that was "double-ended". I've found the "Halti Training Lead" to be exactly what I needed and, as it is padded fabric, it is incredibly strong and very easy on the hands. It does have a clip on both ends that is "easy on-easy off" and it is very versatile so that it can be used in several ways to meet different needs.
I picked it up at Petco in black... but, of course, I wanted a red one to match her harness, so I ended up ordering it in red too from a shop all the way in the UK! The link below will give you a picture and description:

I've found the easiest thing for my is to slip the leash loop in the waist clip of my fanny pack where I keep extra poop bags. That way I don't drop the leash when I am picking up the poop.
Welcome to Dog Forum too! Keep walking your dog. It will help keep you healthy!

I take it that it is the clip itself that is difficult. Is it a clip that you push the metal piece down to open or one that opens with a thumb slide?

If either one of those, perhaps the other one is easier?
I'm trying to think of a way you could slide the leash through the harness ring and then clip but all I can think to do is remove the clip and tie a knot if you are able to do that.
If I remember, I'll try different things on my dog.

Remove the clip from the leash.
Make a loop with a slip knot and push the loop through the collar/harness ring.
Then put the lop around handle of leash and snug down.
Your leash is now attached without a clip.
Only problem I can for see is if you need to remove leash quickly but you probably already couldn't do that and this might actually be faster.
