Dog Leashes

Thursday, February 7, 2013
posted by Jim Murphy

The best leash allows you to communicate with with dog and keep him under control. A six foot leather or nylon lead is the standard for taking walks and basic obedience training. Nylon can be rough on your hands but more durable than leather. Avoid chain leashes as these can injure both you and your dog. ¬†Also avoid leashes with decorations that could come off and choke your dog. Retractable leads can come in links up to 26 feet. These are great for giving your dog more room to run and teaching him to come when called. Look for one with non slip handles, a sturdy lock with quick release, a smooth rewind and reflective tape to keep you both visible at night. Bigger dogs need wider leashes so know your dog’s weight.

Remember, your pets count.
