UK company MDC specialises in animal handling equipment. Their new dog holders come into the ´quick release - anti-strangle´ category.
The quick-release mechanism is very useful and is operated by a pull-ring on the holder shaft. The anti-strangle feature is a pull-out tube at the end of the handle. When pulled the cable is released to enlarge the loop. After the loop is placed over the dog´s head the cable is pulled through to secure the dog. The cable will not release without pulling the release-tube out.
The MDC dog holder is well made with a heavy-duty aluminium pole and good hand grips.
The cable is 6mm stainless steel with heavy plastic coating, and features a secure metal end-stop.
