Dog Collars And Leashes
When it comes to dog collars and leashes, you can either go out and buy the first product that strikes your fancy, or you can put a bit of thought into the purchase, before you buy.
I'm the first to admit that the easy approach is appealing, especially when there are so many varieties to choose from. But, we're talking about Rover here, your best buddy and pal! He deserves a little more care when it comes to his needs, don't you think? Not only that, but you will see that there are many unique dog collars as well as leashes that are designed for different purposes. Many owners find dog training leashes are necessary in addition to regular everyday leashes.
So if you're up for a little bit of effort, I'll try to help you out with a few pointers. Included in the listings will be a range of collars and leashes even though you may never need to consider some of them for your pet.
Ready? O.K., let's go.
Dog Collars And Leashes - Style And SizingAside from the type and style of dog collars and leashes you decide is best for your dog, the next important part is to get the right size and strength. This goes for harnesses also. Collars should be selected based on the size of your dog - obviously you don't need a big monster of a collar for a little cockapoo. Make sense? Likewise don't choose a flimsy collar for a big strong dog.
When measuring for a dog collar, think safety and comfort. Here's a guideline for a fitting that is comfortable for your
dog, but not loose to the point where he can give you the slip. After attaching his collar, there should be a two-finger width of
wiggle room between his neck and the collar. This should also prevent any problems with chafing or hair loss.
that important step covered, let's get right down to...
Types Of Dog Collars
But, fashion aside, here's how it briefly breaks down into
types - we will cover more details on separate pages of the website, so just look for the links to find those covered so far. The
listings that follow are informational only and not endorsements of one product over another.
Dog Harnesses and Head Collars
The idea is to give the handler more control on a walk while gently getting the dog to cooperate. Head collars are more geared toward basic training commands such as sit, stay etc., in addition to leash training. Among the varieties available are:
Other Everyday Dog Leashes And Collars
Other types of leashes include the retractable types which let you control how much leash you let out, ostensibly giving your
dog more or less freedom to roam on his walks.
Cotton dog collars and leashes - I personally like the 100% ones made in America.
They are economical, washable, eco-friendly and come in naturally dyed colors.
And finally, tie outs. I'm not really
in favor of these, with the possible exception of using them for travel purposes.
