Considering their sense of smell is much greater than ours, it makes so much sense as to why they always want to stop and investigate everything on their walk! But, that means they probably pull a lot while you’re out for your daily walk with them. Having a dog that pulls while out on a walk is no fun — so here’s some of the best leashes you can get for your dog that pulls!\n\nCombo harness. Dogs don’t always like the feeling of their leash being on their collar. Instead, consider getting a dog collar and leash set that works well with a harness. You’ll clip the leash to the harness instead of the collar! This makes your pulling on your dog less of a health risk to them. Instead of pulling on their neck joints and harming a muscle, nerve or vertebrae, the harness will guide them back over to you with minimal risk to their body. \nA retractable leash. Of course, you shouldn’t press on the button to stop them when they’re running at full speed — this can cause them to dislocate something or even break their neck! Instead, use the retractable leash for smaller distances and to help train them. Realistically, a retractable leash is for when a harness doesn’t work out with your dog. In fact, you should probably keep this as a backup or even as a last resort. But, it’s always helpful to have on hand. \n\n \nSource: Soloviova Liudmyla\/Shutterstock.com\n\nThick leash. Leashes with a thicker width are better for dogs that pull because it takes you a bit more effort to pull them along with you, so your dog will pay more attention to it. With a thin leash, your dog might not notice the pull as much. To them, it might just feel like it’s been swaying in the wind, especially if you’ve got a larger breed. These leashes are also better on thicker collars so they don’t pull on your dog’s collar. Our silicone pet tags look great on collars of any size, but they are especially great for larger breeds that a thick leash and larger collar would be used for.\nWeatherproof leash. A weatherproof leash is going to be a durable leash that works great for dogs of all kinds — especially ones that pull. Since weatherproof leashes are built with durability in mind, it’s a good leash to use with dogs who have a habit of not staying close to you while on a walk. The best part is that you know you can use the weatherproof leash while out in any kind of weather or climate! \n\nDiscover Our Noise-Free Silicone Dog Tags\n\nAdjustable length leash. A leash that has different lengths is always a good idea for dogs who pull while walking with you. You can shorten it without worrying about harming your dog, but you can also make it a longer length for when you’re walking with them in an open area, such as a field or the beach. \n\n \nSource: Rock and Wasp\/Shutterstock.com\nReasons Your Dog Pulls\nThere are a few reasons your dog might pull while on a walk with you:\n\nTraining: It doesn’t matter what’s in the air; the reality is that if your dog isn’t trained, they’ll pull while on their leash. Learning how to train a dog to walk on a leash can take a bit of finessing, but it doesn’t have to be super difficult. For many dog owners, this means taking a couple of days over a few weeks to use positive reinforcement, their favorite treats and their leash around the backyard or the largest room in your home. Once properly trained, you’ll find that your pup pulls much less than before.\nInteresting smells: We’ve already mentioned how sensitive a dog’s nose is. That nose, of course, is easily sent on a quest to find out just what it’s smelling. For many dogs, this doesn’t always look like them veering off too far, but it’s often just enough away from the walking path that it feels inconvenient to you. Dogs frequently find themselves pulled toward the scent of flowers in the soil beside the sidewalk or the scent of another animal hiding in the bushes. \n\nWhile there are some great leashes out there to use with your dog if they pull, sometimes your dog might get away from you. That’s why it’s important to have updated information on your dog’s tag — our pet ID tag QR codes are a great choice for every dog.
