Not all dog leashes are created equally. Read the full written instructions here: http://topdogtips.com/how-to-choose-the-right-dog-leash
Some owners make the mistake of purchasing the cheapest leash they can find at their local pet shop. Unfortunately, learning how to choose the right dog leash should not be based on price.
“Some retractable leashes are more than 30 feet long. Let’s say a strange dog comes running up to your small breed dog while he’s 25-30 feet away from you. Are you going to be able to get to him before the other dog attacks? No. What if your large dog gets himself tangled around a tree 25-30 feet away from you and the leash begins to choke him. By the time you get him freed, irreversible damage could already be done.”
