Dog leads are available in the market to suit all purposes: for a walk in the city, one in the countryside; a lead for training your pup or even one for controlling your big sized- uncontrollable dog.
A dog lead helps to make your time with your pet enjoyable and comfortable. It helps you to have control of your pet. These leads can be made of metal chains, leather, suede or nylon to walk smaller dogs but comfort level of the dog is important to consider along with the temperament of your pet. Leads come in a superb range with diamantes, bows, sparkles, colors you can get matching leads to suit your imagination.
Slip leads, check collars and metal choker chains can be terribly discomforting for your dog. Head collars are good for dogs that prove difficult to walk as they are self correcting and yet they do not cause any discomfort to your pet. For the purpose of training your dog, a leather lead is a good idea as it gives you better grip and control, does not burn your hands and is long lasting; though a bit more expensive compared to the other kinds.
The length of the lead must also be correct for a walk, one that is four or six feet in length is comfortable. For outdoor training, a twenty to fifty foot leash is required along with rubber gloves on your hands to save them from blisters and burns. Whatever your choice, just ensure that your pet is comfortable and can move without encumbrance so that wearing and moving with the lead does not become an ordeal for your dog.
