Making the Right Choice on Dog Collars and Leads

dog and ownerThe Best Choice in Dog Collars and Leads

There are a couple of items that every dog should have – a collar of some sort and a leash. There’s such an assortment of collars and leads available that it can be rather overwhelming when making a choice.

Generally, the collar and leash you choose is merely a matter of personal preference. The most important thing to remember is to get a collar that fits properly, and a leash that is neither too heavy nor too light for the dog you have. Every pet should wear a collar with an identification tag that gives your name, address, and phone number. Here are some guidelines to follow when making your selection.

Getting the Proper Fit:
This depends on the size of your dog. A large, strong dog can easily break a collar or leash that is lightweight, so they need a heavier collar and leash. Smaller dogs, on the other hand, don’t need to carry around a heavy, wide collar and leash.
