The warm season is upon us, urging us to get out and exercise our muscles and bones. However, when a dog goes out or on a walk, he still needs to be under parental control. If you escape your grip, the consequences can be dire ~ so it’s important to choose the right leash for your dog, too!
1. Collar materials are classified as leather, nylon, plastic, cotton fabric, and synthetic leather. Leather collars made from cowhide have a long life and are close to the dog’s skin. Oil from the dog will seep in and the skin will shine, enhancing softness, increasing toughness and extending the life. But puppies don’t have to use leather, and the usual traditional bell single-ring collar will work.
[2. Chest strap] Almost every chest strap will be surrounded by the chest of the dog and a circle in the front abdominal area behind the front legs. Also, most of the cross meetings are located on the back near the leash attachment point at the center of the back above the shoulder swollen bone.
3. The sternum strap evolved version of the sternum strap is often found on medium to large dogs. The first is an additional one in the middle of two large circles on the lower skeleton; the second is a chest strap with two skeletons on the top and bottom. Because more braces are added to the chest strap, it will hardly break free as long as the length is adjusted to the dog’s size. At the same time, the parents can be evenly dispersed across the chest and abdomen.
【4. Chain P-chain】 P-chain has thickness, you can choose the right one to wear according to the size of the dog, using the P-chain, the most important thing is the correct way to wear it. If the person is on the right, the dog is on the left, help the dog to wear, must be the chain in the p” shape , so that the direction of the force applied is correct; if it is the mouth shape , the direction is completely wrong, you pull, the dog’s neck will be bound, improper use, and even hurt the dog’s trachea. Of course, if the person is on the left and the dog is on the right, it should be worn in reverse, in the q” shape. In addition to the correct chain direction and dog position, the user should always pay attention to the chain lubrication, otherwise it can easily hurt the dog.
The primary function of the P-chain is not to make the dog hurt. Its focus is on instant use. It must be used quickly and accurately, mainly with a fast zipper that instantly tightens instantly and makes the dog feel uncomfortable. At the same time, when the chain meets the dog, it will stop, just like people compete with swords. Also because the use of the P-chain must be quite careful, the slightest carelessness will hurt the dog, if the dog is naturally timid or the human-dog relationship has not yet been established, do not use it. Always consult an expert before using it, and also put the P-chain on your arm a few times to practice and get the hang of it, then use it on your dog.
[5. The headcollar follower belt originated from the horse’s halter, a type of leash that allows for better control of the dog. The direction of the dog’s movement is basically determined by the direction of the head. The headcollar follower belt is used to control the dog’s behavior by changing the direction of the dog’s head with only gentle pressure to prevent the dog from running forward. When wearing it, pay attention to the neck buckle at the root of the jaw, not the throat. When the dog starts wearing it, it will not adjust to the leash on its nose, which will improve quickly with slow training.
[6. Retractable Leash] This is the legendary semi-control collar, which is actually a combination of a collar and a P-chain. The control strength and comfort is also somewhere in between. Choose the right collar according to the characteristics of your dog. The retractable leash is divided into large, medium and small dogs, the handle is ergonomic and just right to hold, the control button decides whether to put a long line, as well as the function of automatic contraction of the rope. The invention of this product focuses on strong nylon rope, which is both fine and resistant to pulling, and the quality of the retractable leash is also key. The point of purchase is to measure the length of extension you need and the weight of the breed you can handle.
[7. Collar Stop Bark] There are two main types of stop bark collars, one is a stop bark collar with an electrical discharge device installed at the throat knot. When the dog barks, the collar naturally generates an electric current, and the other is a stop-bark collar that emits some odor that the dog cannot tolerate. These will immediately make the dog feel uncomfortable and the dog will bark less.

There are a variety of leash devices on the market. How do you choose the right one for your dog? Both leashes and collars have a controlling effect. When they are worn, the dog loses its freedom and, in general, it is inevitable that the dog will resist. Therefore, when choosing a leash and collar, try to choose a higher degree of comfort, without affecting the function. Leashes and collars are made of leather, nylon, cotton and plastic. Many parents of large dogs prefer collars and leashes made of cowhide. They are strong and durable, but also attractive. In addition, the skin becomes softer and tougher as it grows in life. As for puppies and small dogs, you can choose a chest and back leash, which is more comfortable than a collar and leash combination and can provide better protection from dog discomfort and rebellion.
Different leash equipment can also be chosen depending on the actual need. For example, for large dogs that are naughty and not easily controlled, a combination of a neck strap and muzzle can be chosen. The muzzle is attached to the dog’s mouth and nose, and the neck strap is attached to the dog’s neck. Controlled by the leash, the neck strap and muzzle can be divided into loose and tight so that the dog knows what to do when they go out and the parents are upset. They will not feel uncomfortable only if they act according to the parents’ wishes. Muzzles and neckstraps are good for correcting dogs that like to jump on people.
Small and medium sized dogs can also choose a retractable leash. The length of the leash can be controlled by the button on it, and the texture of the leash is mostly nylon, thin and durable. When buying, try to choose a reputable brand and base your choice on the size and weight of your dog and the length of extension you need. It is not recommended to choose a rope that is too long. When walking your dog, keep the dog close to within 1 meter of the square, this is also a way to train obedience. The longer the leash, the harder it is for the dog to control and the more likely it is to develop I am the master and I can walk in front of the master. And so on.
As for P-chains from pet stores, they are not recommended for first-time dog parents. Because there are strict ways to wear and use P-chains, you need to be very careful. If something goes wrong, the dog’s trachea can easily be injured during use. For those who are building a close relationship with the dog, if you choose the P-chain, please consult an expert first and practice with your arm before using it to avoid hurting the dog physically and mentally. It is worth mentioning that even if you are familiar with the use of the P-chain, the dog will not resist and it is not recommended for long-term use, especially for dogs that go out every day and choose some slightly more everyday leash equipment. The P-chain is more suitable for some special situations, such as dogs participating in competitions.

Tips3. Ways to keep your dog on a leash
Not every dog wants to be covered by a collar and leash. Many dogs stay like wooden dogs and do not want to walk straight after first putting on a collar and leash. Therefore, at about 4 to 5 months, that is, before puppies have received all their vaccinations, they can begin to be exposed to and get used to the presence of a leash and collar. Proper leash traction is the key to successful dog training.
① First, put a collar on your dog. You can choose a nylon texture that is comfortable. It’s best to tuck it into your fingers and not just take it off. Maybe the dog will get used to the new thing around his neck in the morning. Then, attach the leash.
② Take the dog to an open space outside your home, put it down with the leash attached, walk 2 meters away and let it come. Don’t use force, let it come. Do not come, but call the dog’s name, pat the leg, etc. At this point, the leash is in a relaxed state. If the dog still doesn’t want to move, you can gently pull the leash to encourage it and give it a little snack until it comes to its parents.
③ Hold the leash in your right hand and keep it appropriately relaxed, with your left hand between your left waist. The state of the leash should be slightly down from where the dog’s collar is, keeping some slack. The owner should always pay attention to whether the dog is in the right position and pulling the rope or not. Otherwise, it will not achieve the purpose of training. One of the most common mistakes in the training process is that in order to get the dog in the right position, it often pulls the leash, with little relaxation. This way, kind of puts pressure on the dog’s neck so often that by the time it comes time to correct the dog’s behavior, there is no point in pulling the leash and the dog can’t tell the difference between the two.
④ At this point, you can pick up the leash and move it slowly forward. At this point, the leash is still relaxed. Move forward slowly as fast as the dog can keep up. If the dog does well, you can give an appropriate reward in the middle. Keep the training time to 10 minutes or less and repeat twice a day for several days.
⑤ When the dog pulls the leash in one direction, immediately force it in the opposite direction. It can turn in the road or go back and forth on the same road. In short, people walk with their dogs.
⑥ The moment the dog is ready to pull the leash forward – Notice the way the dog is ready to pull the leash. When this sign appears, pull the leash violently backward, strangling it around its neck. It is very important to seize this moment of strength and timing, apply sudden force to the dog’s neck, and then relax the rope. It is important to note, however, that the above training method will not be effective if the leash is kept tight around the dog’s neck.
⑦ In addition, when training or going for a walk, try to have the dog walk on the owner’s left side and in the same direction or switch to the right side if you are not used to the left side, however, we cannot ignore the owner’s presence and pull the leash straight at will. In this way, the owner is not attractive to the dog and simply not trustworthy. In this case, training is very necessary.

③ When the dog is fully accustomed to using a chest strap for traction, parents can switch to using a collar for traction, which allows for more effective control of the dog and also prevents hair tangles.
④ At first the neck should be moderately loose and tight so that two fingers can be put on it and it cannot be taken right off. Both parent and dog fit on the leash and can relax the neck appropriately.
When parenting, the parent can hold the leash on the dog’s left side, with the right hand on the waist and the dog parallel to you or slightly behind.
⑥ Pay close attention to the rhythm of the dog’s driving, parents need to do a good job of momentarily shaking and pulling the leash warning, the magnitude should not be too large.
⑦ When following normally, the leash should have a slight downward arc and the leash should remain relaxed. If the dog suddenly jumps up, the parent will immediately shake and the dog can immediately experience the owner’s warning.
