Choose the Proper Dog Leash

Finding a leash for your dog can be difficult with so many types of leashes available you are probably like I was at first puzzled by which ones will work and which ones will not work. I know when I walked down my local pet stores leash aisle I was absolutely amazed at the amount of leashes and brands that are available. So I kept picking up a leash and ended up buying a lot more leashes than I really needed. So here are my tips and secrets on how I narrow down the wide selection of leashes to the one that works best for me.

The first tip that I have is I always look for a leash that has some type of guarantee. Some of the leashes such as Lupine have a lifetime guarantee while others have a limited guarantee. Either way I want to make sure of a guarantee to make sure that if my dog snaps the leash within the first week of him having it I do not have to purchase a replacement just return the leash for fulfillment of the warranty.

The second tip that I have is find the leash that is the right size for your dog. Now some people will choose a leash that is meant for a Boxer for their little Yorkshire Terrier. I know that the leash will work, but it also is huge and can get really heavy on your dogs collar while he is walking. However, I have to really look hard for a leash that is meant for my dogs size because he is a two hundred pound English Mastiff and that is hard to find a leash that will fit his weight.

The third tip is find a leash that is the right length for what you want. Some of the adjustable length leashes have a wide variety of lengths that are available for you to let your dog walk farther in front of you or you can retract them to be right next to your side. Now I know that these work nice for smaller breed dogs. However, for my large breed dogs they would not work at all because they are well above the weight limit for them. So you do have to keep that in mind when checking those leashes out.

Finding a leash for your dog is not as hard as it may seem when you’re inside the pet store. As long as you know exactly what you need to do and what exactly you need for your beloved dog, you can easily find a leash for your pet.
