Sometimes your dog gets so thrilled about the idea of going out for a walk that from the moment you two leave the house it’s extremely hard to control it. If the dog keeps chewing on its own leash, running around in circles or simply trying to escape it, can potentially make the walk a real nightmare. You obviously can’t let it run freely, as the law requires your dog to be on a leash in public areas most of the time. What to do in this situation?
The solution is choosing a proper leash for your dog. Depending on the breed of your dog and its behavior, the type of the leash that you choose will differ as there are leashes of different widths, lengths, and strengths. Although, for everyday walks any leash should be suitable, if your dog is a strong and nervous type that attacks everything around, including its own leash, then it requires either a good training to teach it to stop pulling the leash or you should immediately invest in an indestructible dog leash – the one that’s capable of surviving your dog’s most frivolous attempts to escape.
The basic purpose of every leash is always the same – to keep your dog under your control (though sometimes the dogs seem to control their owners). You should not be pulling the leash too strong in order not to hurt your dog when trying to tame it, even if its behavior makes you want to scream. By treating your dog well, you can create a unique bond with it, unique to a relationship between people and dogs, and impossible to create with any other animal species.
How to choose your special-needs indestructible dog leash? To make a good choice you should pay attention to a few factors that will either make your dog cooperate well while wearing it or hate you wholeheartedly. First of all, you should forget about the metal dog leash made of connected together thick metal rings. Some dogs won’t stop chewing the leash, even if they notice it’s indestructible and, in the end, it can be a very harmful experience for them, even resulting in a severe teeth damage.
A much better choice would be the one made of a solid steel cable, usually with a vinyl coating. This makes it only slightly heavier than a typical leash and it’s less of a problem and danger for a dog. Make sure that when choosing a clip, you take into consideration the strength, weight, and size of your dog – so that it won’t break free.
Despite the fact that indestructible dog leash is in fact almost impossible to be destroyed by a dog chewing on it, there are other things that could happen to it – that’s why you should always try to have a spare one, in case you lost your main one or it got damaged in any way. Keep your leash well-maintained and if it gets wet, hang it and wait for it to dry.
Remember that there’s no perfect leash for a dog – statistically, they behave better while they are allowed to run freely. To stay on the safe side, invest in an indestructible dog leash and remember to check it regularly for any damage, ensuring that the clip is strong and secure – this should protect both you and your dog from any damage and will let you build a real bond each time you go for a walk with your dog.
