The Best Fit Leash for your Pet

Living in the city or busy areas, it is important to keep your pet on a leash. How do you know which leash is best for your dog? We suggest starting out with the standard leash and see how your pet is reacting to it. Maybe they’re pulling too much, or maybe they want to be way ahead and smell everything before you catch up to them. We have listed out top three favourite leashes for dogs specifically.

 

#1 Standard Leashes

Standard leashes are intended for basic training and everyday use. They have a loop handle at one end and a metal clip at the other end to attach to your dog’s collar. Typically available in lengths from 4-8 feet, the 6-foot length is ideal for most dogs. The material varies, and usually decided upon based on preference of the owner.

#2 Retractable Leashes

Retractable leashes contain a nylon band or cord of up to 26 feet that retracts into a plastic case with a handle. The leash can lock in place at any length. The mechanism is similar to that of a measuring tape. Retractable leashes contain a nylon band or cord of up to 26 feet that retracts into a plastic case with a handle.

#3 Slip Leads for Dogs

Slip leads are all-in-one collars and leashes. The leash loops onto itself and goes over the dog’s head. If you or your dog pulls on the leash, the collar part will tighten. This can be dangerous if used improperly since it can close off your dog’s airway if it gets pulled too tightly. Also be aware that your dog may be able to loosen the area around the neck and slip out. Use caution when walking a dog on a slip lead.
