What Are Training Leads?

As the name gives away, these leads are specifically manufactured to assist in the training of your canine. Training leads are used for both puppies and older, larger dogs in obedience training, allowing you a tool to gain control over your pet during walks. This type of dog lead gives owners the option for multiple configurations, allowing them to manipulate the length of the lead depending on the environment and the nature of your pet. The versatility of the training lead is what gives this product much of its prowess, as it is known to have been used historically by police and army dog handlers during training.

Some of the purposes of training leads are:

  • Recalling dogs when distracted
  • Giving reactive dogs the impression of being more free when on a longer lead
  • Keeping distracted dogs focused, especially in public areas
  • To keep your dog from bolting after other animals / humans

Training Lead Safety

Before using a training lead on your canine, the pivotal safety rule is to use harnesses with long leads. When using long-line training leads, harnesses should be the only option to use with your pet. When using a collar, tugging on your pet’s neck with a long-line lead can cause serious damage to their neck and spine. It is also suggested to clip the lead onto the further point of attachment on the back, rather than the chest.
