The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Right Training Lead for Your Human

The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Right Training Lead for Your Human

Hey there, Good Dog!

Ready to take your human on some epic walks and training sessions? We’ve got the ultimate guide to help you choose the perfect lead. After all, keeping your human in check is a big responsibility, and you deserve the best kit to do it!

Why Leads Matter

First things first, why should you care about the lead? Well, a good lead is your secret weapon for teaching your human how to follow your lead (pun intended). It helps build trust, and makes sure they don’t wander off chasing birds or coffee vans. Plus, it keeps you looking fresh and feeling comfy on those daily adventures.

Key Features to Look For

When picking out a lead, here’s what you need to sniff out:

1. Length and Adjustability:
Think about how far you want your human to roam. Especially for those times you need to give them a bit more freedom, go for a longer lead. Adjustable length leads are great if your human can’t make up their mind.

2. Material:
You need a lead that’s tough but comfy. Easy clean also keeps them happy, now we are not saying you regularly pss on your lead, but we've heard some Dogs do. We ain't saying that's you though! Look for ones made from durable materials like nylon or waterproof coatings. They should be strong enough to handle a tug-of-war but not heavy for you to wear.

3. Handle Comfort:
Okay, this one’s for your human’s comfort. A good size handle can save their human hands, during those energetic training sessions. Plus, a happy human means more snacks for you! 

4. Clip Quality:
A sturdy clip is crucial. You want a clip that’s easy for your human to use but secure enough to keep them safely attached. If you're a 'Sniffari at beach' type of dog you want a smooth mechanism, that doesn't get clogged with wet sand.

5. Style and Design:
Why not strut your stuff in style? Choose a lead that reflects your magnificent personality. There’s no reason training leads can’t be fashionable too! I'm sure you, like us, are sick of kidswear prints being used on your kit. We hear ya! You should be worshipped not decorated.
