There is no right way that I can tell you. Try different combinations untill you find the best one. A dog that always walks in front of you and pulls you down the street, may not run in lead at all. Some dogs also run better on one side of the line or the other. Hook them up different ways and see what works the best. Try short runs at first untill you and the dogs are comfortable with everything as well. Good luck and have fun.
