Since I live in the city, leash is a necessity. And with huge selection from the stores, how do you know which leash to get? It all comes down to preference.

I prefer nylon leashes. They are durable, don’t easily stretch and are easy to clean. When choosing the right leash, consider the following:

  • Does it feel comfortable in your hand?
  • Does it slip out of your hard easily? If yes, than this is not your leash.
  • If the dog were to suddenly pull, would the leash cut into your hand?
  • Are the clips durable and easy to open/close?

For city dwellers, the leash shouldn’t be more than 4-feet long. It should be long enough to keep your dog close to you and out of danger, yet let it feel unrestricted. If you live in a more remote location, than you can give your dog a little more wiggle room, as you aren’t limited by space
