Selecting the Correct Leash Length for Your Various Leash Training Exercises
Form enhances function when it comes to dog-management gear.
When you think leash, chances are you think of a four-to-six-foot strap made of nylon, cotton, hemp, leather, or (horrors!) chain, with a snap that attaches to your dogs collar at one end and a handle for you to hold at the other. You use it to keep him close to you when you take him for walks or other places where he has to be under control. But a leash can be so much more than that! Lets think outside the box. Theres no law that says leashes have to be a certain length, made of a particular material, or be limited to one snap and one handle. There are all kinds of things you can do with non-traditional leashes. Heck, theres even a good use for the grocery store chain leash.
