Dog collars and leashes are not just for fashion purposes; they are required by law. The leash law protects both dogs and owners from unexpected accidents.
The advantages of putting a leash on your dog are numerous. For one, you can prevent your dog from chasing people, animals, vehicles or bicyclists. In the event that a dangerous situation arises, you can pull your dog back to safety. Further, you can prevent your dog from getting lost with a leash on. In a nutshell, dog leashes can save your dog’s lives.
How to choose the right leash?
When choosing leashes for a dog, you need to consider a variety of factors, from materials to styles and training. Knowing which materials and styles will suit your dog's lifestyle will enable you to make the best choice. To help you out, consider these factors below.
At eDog, our leashes are designed for comfort, style, and functionality. Most of our leashes come with adjustable sizing that allows you to get the perfect fit for your dog's size and shape. Many of our leashes are also built from soft leather, making them comfortable for everyday wear.
Whether you are doing alert training or a daily walk, our leashes will keep your dog under control. Our products feature heavy-duty snaps and just the right leash length. Using this tool, you can teach your dog to come to you with recall training or ensure you remain in control as you can still see your dog from a distance. There are also leashes with soft leather stops that can be adjusted according to the movements of the dog. This allows you to control your dog without using a harsh chain collar.
Without your dog feeling comfortable, it will be difficult to train them. For maximum comfort, choose leashes with multi-filament UV polypropylene material, like the ones we have at eDog. It allows you to react quickly when needed, without the harshness of a chain collar. With a soft grip that fits comfortably in your hand and enough pliability to fit in your pocket, this leash allows you and your dog to enjoy every walk, play in the park, and dog activity together.
Almost all our dog leashes come with a variety of lead length options, making them an effective and versatile training tool that makes controlling, guiding, and tethering your dog easy and comfortable.
How to train a dog to walk on a leash?
You can easily teach your puppy how to walk on a dog’s leash. You don't need to yank or drag your pup if he misbehaves on a leash - there are simple solutions.
Introduce the dog to the collar and leash
As a first step, let him get used to wearing a collar and a leash. Allow him to wear them in the house while you play with him and give him treats. It is important for the puppy to enjoy collar-and-leash time because it represents food and fun.
Teach a cue
Learn a sound cue that signifies the food is coming. You can use your own cue, but some people use a word cue like “yes” or cluck their tongue. No matter how you do it, make the sound while the puppy is on a leash and collar in a quiet and distraction-free area. Whenever your puppy turns towards you or looks at you, reward him with a treat. Your puppy will begin to look at you as well as come to you for the treat after a few repetitions.
Make the puppy come to you
If he's still wearing a leash and collar when he's on his way to you, back up a few paces before rewarding him. The progression should be continued until your puppy comes to you upon hearing the cue noise and walks a few paces with you. Puppy attention spans are short, so keep your sessions short and finish when your puppy is still eager to learn more, not when he is mentally exhausted.
After your puppy understands how to come to you, walk a few steps in a room where there are few distractions. It will be challenging enough for him just to feel the leashes around him. Whenever your puppy comes to you with a leash, treat and praise him so he becomes accustomed to it.
Take it outside
It's now time to put your puppy's skills to the test. This step will present new challenges for your puppy because all the sounds, smells, and sights he encounters will be unfamiliar to him. Take short walks during the first few days. As you're walking your puppy, if it looks like he's about to lunge or is about to become distracted, make your cue sound and back away from him. Once he has followed you, reward him with a treat.
