Determine your dogs level of leash training, his personality, his breed characteristics, his size and strength. Determine you and your dogs activities.
Most dogs do well on a standard 6ft dog leash similar to our Black Raven. The length is long enough for basic obedience training and routine walks. A 4ft leash may be the best choice for daily walks; it’s a popular length and works well with most dogs.
A jaeger leash that’s worn over-the-shoulder, and allows your hands to be free is great for hiking or jogging but often used with leash trained dogs. A basic rule is that the shorter the leash, the more control you have of your dog, and the easier it is to communicate non verbal commands with subtle pulls on the leash.
Selecting the best climbing rope dog leash for your dog may not be any single leash, but different leashes best suited for specific activity’s, or environments. A short traffic lead may be best for crossing busy streets or maneuvering through crowds of people. A longer leash allows the dog more freedom where as some leashes like slip leads are best suited for kennel and rescue work.
Carabiners are a popular choice and fit naturally with climbing rope dog leashes. The light weight of the forged aluminium carabiner works well with medium to extra large dogs. Carabiners do not swivel on their own. Depending on the dog, the style of the leash and how the leash is being used, a swivel may be a necessary option. Dogs that walk well on lead do fine with a carabiner dog leash without the added swivel.
We all know that one dog that never behaves poorly, and we’re just so surprised that he would behave so excitably, and forget every leash command we thought he knew so well.
The prey drive kicks in, and the desire to chase that damn squirrel makes us realize we need a leash more capable of this 120lb dog. This dog will only be teased, and taunted by a 12 oz squirrel knowing how to stay just out of reach while it enjoys antagonizing a dog that is so deep in his prey drive hes not processing any commands, and is dangerously out of control.
If you know what its like to chase after this dog with a broken leash in hand, then you might consider our Ultimate Dog Leash that’s built specifically with this dog in mind. Some professional dog training would be an added bonus.
