Dog Leash Types

Are you fed up with your dog’s incessant barking at every little thing? If you are, then it might time that you think seriously about getting a new one. Dogs like all other animals (except maybe snakes) need to be socialized, in order to learn how to behave properly around people. This is why it’s so important to choose the right kind of dog lead for your dog.

martingale leash

The martingale leash is probably the most common of the two. This is because martingale leashes are just that: adjustable. Most dogs can be easily fit on a martingale leash, as they are fairly small, and regular walking around isn’t going to put too much stress on the leash itself. You’ll find that the majority of dog owners use a martingale leash when outdoors because it makes walking their dogs much more comfortable.

slip leads

Slip leads, on the other hand, are typically used by larger dogs. Slip leads are made from leather, which is strong and durable. While these leashes are not as adjustable as martingale leashes, they are much more comfortable for larger dogs, and since the leashes are adjustable, larger dogs can easily get their weight on the leash without tugging too hard. Keep in mind that slip leashes are extremely important to train your dogs as they are much more difficult to control than martingale leashes.

single hand

Some people would say that there’s no difference between a single handle and a double leash. Well, actually there is a significant difference. Basically, there is only one handle on a single leash, whereas a double leash will usually have two handles. With a single leash, you can just grab the leash and start walking, and with a double leash, you’ll need both hands to hold onto the leash to keep it steady and to make sure that you don’t slip off. So which one is better for walking your dogs?

double leash

Overall, double leashes are preferred by most dog owners, although there are some pet owners who prefer single-handle leashes. It really all depends on the type of pet you own, because each breed has its own individual personality and likes and dislikes. Most dog owners will agree that dogs that are well trained, and who know their dog’s temperament best, are generally happier pets overall, as compared to those who are not well-trained.

different types of collar

One last thing that you should keep in mind is that while some dogs like to pull most dogs won’t pull. Therefore, if you have a dog who likes to pull, or if your dog pulls on you when walking, then you may want to consider a strong enough collar. There are many different types of collars and you can purchase them at various stores such as Pet Smart, or even buy them online. So keep these things in mind, when choosing the right dog collar for your furry (or feathered) friend!
