Many new dog owners are uncertain as to whether they should be using a collar or a harness for their dog.
I am a huge fan of harnesses and will explain why shortly, but I think collars can have a place if your dog doesn’t pull on the lead.
I thought this article may be informative for people who are unsure about the best choice for their dogs.
Flexi leads (or retractable leads) extend in length when your dog pulls and then retract into a plastic casing when the dog returns to you, or as you catch up with your dog. They have a manual braking system to stop your dog from going further than you want them to.
Many of my new puppy owner clients ask me what my thoughts are on flexi leads. My answer: I absolutely detest them! I wish they had never been invented!
