KPS way of choosing the pawfect leash

A leash is not just the leash… it is your most important training tool and has a direct impact on your relationship with your dog. It also helps to keep your pooch safe, here’s how to choose the right leash:

  • Leather leashes are soft and strong, besides being gentle on your hands.
  • Cotton leashes are soft and are good in water. If your dog loves swimming, it is an excellent choice.
  • The length of the leash should be such that it can allow your pooch to do his ‘business’ and can sniff around, while you hold his leash in your hand.
  • While buying a leash, always remember to consider the age and weight of your pet. You can use a 10-15 mm leash for a Pug pup up to 4-5 months but you cannot use the same for a Labrador Retriever pup who will require a 20 mm leash.
  • Chain leashes can hurt your dog if it happens to get stuck in his teeth. If used for walking, remember to use an additional gripper, to avoid hurting your hand.
  • Nylon leashes are probably the most attractive ones in different hues. It is light and strong. Use a padded leash, to avoid leash burn on your hand, if your dog has a habit of pulling suddenly. If you are buying the first leash for your pup, it is a good idea.
