Choosing the right leash and collar for your dog

Choosing the right leash and collar for your dog


If you are like me and want to look stylish while walking your dog, then this article is for you! I will share with you my favourite collars, harnesses and leashes that can help make your walks fun and comfortable for both of us.

collar vs harness

Collars and harnesses are both options for your dog. However, there are some factors that you'll want to consider before choosing which one is right for your pup.

  • If your dog has short hair and doesn't pull much, then a collar may be the best choice for them. This will help keep their head in place so they don't get tangled up in their own fur or lose their balance when running around outdoors.
  • If your dog has long hair or tends to pull frequently (especially during walks), then a harness may be more suitable since it gives greater control over where she moves her body while walking on leash or running after something else nearby like squirrels! Also remember: Dogs with sensitive necks should avoid wearing collars because they can cause discomfort if worn incorrectly; instead opt for collars made out of softer materials such as leather instead!

choker collar

A choker collar is one that has a long piece of leather or another material wrapped around the neck. They’re designed to give dogs an extra level of control over their neck, which can help prevent them from pulling on the leash or chewing things up while they’re out walking with you.

Choker collars are ideal for dogs with short necks, as they don't have much slack in them and therefore won't get caught on branches or other things that might happen if your dog wasn't wearing one. This type of collar also makes it easy for you to check how tight it is by looking down at where it's fastened onto their bodies (in most cases).

leather and velvet

Leather is the most durable and affordable material for leashes, it’s also more comfortable than nylon. Leather collars are often heavier than other types of collars because they have more padding in them to cushion your pup's neck from rubbing against the metal fasteners on their collar.

Leather collars do tend to be expensive (though there are some cheaper options out there), but if you want a piece of clothing that will last for years and look good while doing so, then this may be worth it!

buckle or tags?

Buckle collars are the best option for your dog because they're safer than tags. Tags can come off and get caught on things, which is especially dangerous if you have kids in the house. They also pose a choking hazard for little dogs who may try to chew them off their necks. Buckle collars won't slip out of place or get caught on anything because they're attached directly to your dog's neck with a metal clasp that snaps shut when he backs up into it (or you pull him forward).

Tags also don't last forever! If your pup chews through one of these pieces of identification, then there will be no way to replace any lost pieces—you'll have no choice but to find someone else's dog tag that has been broken off somewhere along his journey through life so far!

You have to find a collar that fits your dog and meets their needs

Finding the right collar for your dog is important. It doesn't matter if you are using a leather collar, or one made of nylon and elastic; they all have their own benefits and drawbacks.

You can choose from many different materials when it comes to collars: plastic, metal, leather (or synthetic), rubber and even fabric! The material also varies depending on what type of collar you are looking for. For instance:

  • A heavy duty leather collar will last longer than other types of collars due to its durability; however this means that it may not be comfortable for your pooch if they have long locks or sensitive skin areas such as noses or ears. These areas will not be able to breathe properly if there is too much pressure being applied by such collars around them during playtime activities. (this topic deserves another blog post in itself!).


Now that you’ve learned about the best collars for your dog, it’s time to make a choice. We hope this guide has helped you decide which type of collar would be best for your pup! The key is finding one that fits well and looks good on them.
