There are five types of leashes available on the market today- stay till the end and we will be covering one of the best leashes available. Choose your dog leash with care.
Standard leashes are intended for daily use and basic training. They have a loop handle at one end and a metal clip at the end to attach to your dog's collar or harness. Typically lengths are from 4-8 feet and 6-foot length being the most ideal for most dogs.
Retractable leashes contain a nylon band or cord of up to 26 feet that retracts into the case with a handle. The leash can lock in place at any length and the mechanism is similar to that of a measuring tape. Some retractable leashes have a built-in flashlight or even a poop bag dispenser.
Adjustable or multi-function dog leashes are similar to standard leashes, but they have several loops along the leash that allow a clasp to shorten or lengthen the leash. Adjustable leashes are usually between 4-8 feet. The various sizes can be useful during certain kinds of dog training.
Slip leads are all-in-one collars and leashes. The leash loops onto itself and goes over the dog's head. If you or your dog pulls on the leash, the collar part will tighten. This can be dangerous if used improperly since it can close off your dog's airway if it gets pulled too tightly.
There are several leashes made with a combination of features. Some standard leashes have special grip handles or a second traffic handle near your dog's neck. Certain adjustable leashes have elastic or springs in them to help absorb the shock of a pulling dog such as running dog leashes. There are leashes with reflective strips for nighttime walking or running. Some leashes are even equipped with flashlights, built-in waste bag holders.
