February 5, 2010, Newsletter Issue #325: Leashes and Collars

Tip of the Week

The type of leash and collar that you need depend on your budget and lifestyle. For most people, a regular nylon collar and leash is more affordable and will do fine. If you do quite a bit of walking in the evening, consider purchasing a leash and collar that is reflective. For the active dog walker or those of you who want to bike with your dog, consider a retractable leash for flexibility. Some canines are better suited to harnesses. Dogs that have easily collapsible tracheas like Pugs and Boston Terriers are better suited to harnesses. A leather collar and leash tends to be more durable as well as expensive. If you want something that will last and don't plan on any muddy outings, leather may be an option for you.
