|regular waist belt tether system|
The length of the tether allows your child to walk on either side OR DIRECTLY BEHIND their service dog. Adjust the waist belt loosely on your child. The tether loops over the waist belt and can slide around the belt as the child moves around the dog.
The Weighted Waist Belt Tether ($27) has a metal O-ring that hangs from the child's waist belt. The metal ring serves a number of purposes;
|dark denim weighted tether|
- the weight of the ring gives your child a physical sense of wearing the belt
- the weight helps your child orient themselves to the dog, even when the tether is not under tension. For example, if the child always walks with the dog on their right, position the metal O-ring on the child's right side to give them a sense of 'sameness' each time they are tethered to their dog.
- any comfort toy that your child routinely takes on their outings can be clipped to the metal O-ring on their belt
Each Waist Belt Tether System comes with a black stuff sack for easy transport and to keep the belt contained when in the washing machine.
Available in black, dark denim blue, red, purple and pink.
