Dog leash (also be called dog lead, dog lead line or tether) is a rope or similar material attached to the neck or head of the dog for restraint or control. On the dog, some dog leashes clip or tie to a collar, harness, or halter, while others go directly around the dog’s neck.Dog leash types are various for different functions or Manufacturing process. For example, long dog leads can give the dog more active room and leather dog leads can make the puppies more adorable. We provide the dog leads online shopping service in Australia.

Dog leashes Q&A
Large dogs, especially herding and working dogs, will run after anything little, including dogs. They wouldn’t necessarily mistake her for a rabbit, but a lot of dogs (even if they are not aggressive) have something called ‘prey drive’. Basically, they will chase after anything that runs from them. This doesn’t mean they will hurt her if they catch her, but they could hurt her accidentally. A lot of dogs will roll a little dog that is running from them.
Your safest recourse is to teach your dog to lie down (quickly) on command. If she is being chased, you need to tell her to “down”. I know this sounds backwards, but a lot of dogs will just run up to her and stop and sniff her. It would also be quicker for you to get to her if she stops and lies down. It’s scary to think about, but it could save her life.
A dog trained to walk properly on a leash should be fine on a 6′ loose lead.
Retractable leashes or loose long leashes do not give you control of your dog should a situation arise. What are you going to do from 15-30 ft away?
Pulling on the lead is not only uncomfortable for you, but also for your dog. While your arm is getting pulled from its socket, your dog’s neck is suffering. And while harnesses are slightly better, they do allow your dog to pull with their entire body weight.
Choke chains are very traumatic to the neck, so please avoid them.
Ensure you have somewhere to train where your dog is not distracted, you can even start in the house or backyard.
Keep training sessions short, so that neither of you get frustrated. Training for 5-10 minutes a day is perfect.
Find some treats your dog really likes that you can easily carry with you. Train him when he is a little hungry.
STEPS TO SUCCESS
Ask your dog to sit next to your left leg, with his shoulder in line with you.
Hold a treat in your hand to get your dogs attention.
Step off with your left leg, while saying ‘heel’.
As soon as he takes off ahead turn around and start walking in the opposite direction.
As soon as your dog catches up and reaches the correct position next to your left leg say ‘heel’ and get his attention with a treat.
Repeat the turn-around each time your dog surges ahead and correct him by saying ‘heel’.
Initially reward him each time he is in the heel position and walking by your side, it also teaches him to look to you for direction. As he progresses, get him to walk for a longer period beside you before he gets the treat.
Enjoy your walk and continue intermittently rewarding your dog for paying attention and walking with you. Once the behaviour is established rewards can be in the form of treats, play or just simply a ‘good boy’ when he is doing the right thing.
Keep training sessions short, 5-10 minutes is perfect.
Initially train somewhere with few distractions.
Use rewards not punishment, and initially reward the correct behaviour immediately with a treat.
Remember to enjoy yourself and celebrate the progress you are both making by combining leash-training with some off-leash time.
