Reconsider your retractable leash
You probably haven’t thought about it but did you know that a retractable leash can be a potential hazard?
Not only have we heard reports of owners having their fingers severed from these leashes (when a dog suddenly pulls hard and the leash runs quickly through the hand) but these devices can also be dangerous for your dog.
We’ve witnessed plenty of situations where a dog on a retractable leash is allowed to get too close to an aggressive dog or even head towards a busy road. It is very difficult to be in full control of your dog if you are using one of these leashes so it is hard for us to recommend them.
When it comes to walking your dog, we can advise you on the most suitable leash or harness.
