Leash Walking – The Triple Threat

Spring on the way and we can all probably agree that we’re looking forward to the sunshine and dry pavement, but no one more than our dogs! Having the right accessories can make your walk a safe and fun experience for you and your pup. Here’s our “triple threat” of leash walking accessories:

Martingale Collar

A MartOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAingale style quick release collar gives you more control of your dog during the walk. The additional loop on the collar allows it to constrict and release based on the pressure placed on the collar. It also helps prevent the tricky dogs who’ve learned that a loose collar and an abrupt stop can mean freedom!

Easy Walk HarnessPremierGentleLdrHarness_blackC

The Easy Walk Harness, in our opinion, is the best invention since Camp Bow Wow. Unlike other harnesses, it’s incredibly easy to put on and take off and is even color coded for convenience. It provides control of the dog right at the power center, across the front of the chest. So when your dog starts to pull, the harness turns the dog around toward you. When your dog ends up walking the wrong way… viola, the pulling stops! This harness is great for all sizes and breeds of dogs and doesn’t involve any pressure on the neck. Even the most inexperienced dog walker can feel confident when walking with a properly fitted Easy Walk Harness.

Leash with Traffic Handle

Our lTraffic handle leasheash of choice is a standard 6′ leash with traffic handle. If you’re not sure of what a “traffic handle” is, it’s a loop right at the clip of the leash that allows you to pull your dog close to you for “traffic” situations (narrow sidewalks, bikers or other dogs passing, waiting at cross walks, etc.). A basic nylon leash gives you the ability to teach your dog to loose leash walk, which will make your walk much more enjoyable!
