Are You Walking Your Dog or Your Child?

Child-Harness-LeashToday must have been parents night. I was walking one of my dogs by the school and the parking lot was packed. As I’m looking around I see what I thought was some lady taking her dog our of the car for a potty break. Being an animal lover I’m trying to get a better view of what kind of puppy it is.  As I keep walking I realize that it is not a dog but her son. This took me by surprise a bit.

Her leash was wrapped around her wrist, the same way I was holding my leash. I honestly thought she was walking a dog. I'm sure there are many people out there that do use these child-harness-leashes for safety reasons but I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to seeing that.  Maybe because I’m a dog walker.

I guess if you are in a place like Disneyland the leash would come in very handy. Perhaps your child is a runner and can easily slip out of your grip and for safety sake I can see why you would need to leash your child.

Have any of you leashed your kids? Would you consider using one for your child?
