Tabs are short 'handles' that can be left on the collar when a dog is working off leash. It provides a quick hand hold until the dog is released. Great for off leash work, dog training and Frisbee. They can be used as a traffic leash. Our tabs come in 4 styles, 'vari tabs' which open up to make a handle, and flat tabs which remain closed and each is available with or without a D-ring to attach your leash. Super quality, tested and guaranteed.
