|I do the one in each hand method. I walk Fritz, Auda, and Cocoa at the same time. Fritz in one hand and Auda and Cocoa (small) in the other. One has to pay close attention and be ready to duck under a leash to keep them from getting tangled together or getting hog tied by the leash.
I like to use a retractable leash,(mine are around 10 feet, the long one's can be hard to keep in control with more then one dog) but if you do, you must know how to use them. (keeping the leash short when needed and know how to use the brake to suck the dogs back in if needed. They are only allowed to get long at the park or other place where they are not in danger or near other dogs, people, or traffic)
I would start out using two short leashes and slipping your hand through the loop in the leash. (I have been told not to do this, that I could be pulled into traffic of a dangerous situation...My dogs don't pull and I would rather be at risk with my dogs, then feeling guilty for letting my dogs get away/into trouble and be hurt)
You will need to practice moving your dogs around with the leash. Watch out for trees or anything you could get wound around and have fun.
