    10 Life Hacks with Carabiners

    I recommend that you buy a second soft leash and use this as a cross body or waist harness. It depends on the size of your dog and the condition of your body, but I feel this is much better than the wrist. It allows you to be completely hands free and only use the leash for control when you need to. The stopping force or resistance is much shorter and stronger too so your dog will quickly learn that pulling is not effective. I find that the space between pull and stop is what encourages dogs to pull. I have a 42kg Sarloos and she only pulls when she's got a rabbit etc by scent but she pulls hard and I find no problems (I'm 69kg btw). Only caveat would be careful going down hill ;)
