If you have a dog, then you'll probably have to bring them on a walk. There are many factors to consider when you when choosing a dog leash for your dog. Understanding different types of materials and styles that best suits your dog's lifestyle is of utmost importance.


The majority of dog leashes are made from nylon. They come in a variety of colors, sizes and designs. Metal chain leashes also exist and these are much heavier than their nylon counterpart. If you're considering a natural material that is durable you can consider leather. Note that leather needs special care from time to time to maintain it's use.


There are many different styles of leashes. There is a standard dog leash which has a handle on one side and usually a swivel hook that's used to attach your leash. Retractable leashes are good when you want to maintain control of your dog but also allow them off in the distance.

Some leashes are made specifically for a certain purchase such as running leashes. These leashes have a belt that go around your waist and a bungee cord to absorb any tension when your dog pulls ahead. Selecting your leash depends on the material you want and the intended use.
