How to choose dog leash

Standard Dog Leash

A standard 6' leather or nylon leash is great for walks or basic obedience exercises, but it won't allow you to give corrections to your dog over long distances.

Retractable Lead

A retractable leash that can extend 25' to 30' can be useful for leash training a puppy or for teaching the stay command, but it may not be the best way to keep your dog under control.

You should never use a chain leash. Not only are they ineffective for training purposes, they can easily injure you or your dog.

A nylon show lead makes for a great puppy leash. They're usually inexpensive and serve as a gentle introduction to leash training. As your puppy grows, you'll need to step up to a stronger nylon or leather dog leash. A 4' to 6' leather leash in a width that's suitable for your particular dog and a nylon retractable leash should be enough to meet all of your training needs.

The number one function of designer dog leashes is to keep your dog safe, and under your control. With that in mind, dog leashes should be judged for durability, length and security. Look for designer dog leashes that are about six feet long, made of leather or nylon, with a good quality metal clip. The clip should securely fasten to a metal ring on your dog's collar. Check your designer dog leases periodically for signs of fraying. Dogs like to chew, and sometimes-designer dog leashes are the handiest things around.


Look for designer dog leashes that are comfortable to hold, and give you good control over your dog, especially if it is a larger breed.

Designer dog leashes come in the retractable style, but retractable leashes, when not used with extra care, can allow a dog to wander too far and potentially get into trouble. Designer dog leashes with a loop on one end, and your dog on the other, are a safe choice.

Designer Dog Leashes Safety by Design

Designer dog leashes that glow-in-the-dark, or which have reflective properties offer important safety considerations. In addition, whether you are using designer dog leashes, or any kind of leash, always tug firmly on the connection between the leash, and your dog's collar, to check the strength of the connection before setting out on a walk.

Your Ideal Choice in Designer Dog Leashes

The ideal designer dog leashes are those that offer strength, durability and control. Look for designer dog leashes that are non-retractable, and about six feet long, to keep you close to your dog, and minimize the chances of a nasty encounter with other dogs or people. Designer dog leashes should feature a secure, heavy-duty clasp the holds firmly to your dog's collar, and they should be comfortable to hold in your hand. Have fun when choosing dog leashes, and pick a leash that expresses both your—and your dog's—personality.
