Leashes used for training are often referred to as training leads or simply leads. They are perfect for teaching your dog several commands. Common commands that will keep you and your dog safer while out in public, or even at home, are “come”, “stay”, “heel”, or “sit”. You should spend approximately 15 to 20 minutes reinforcing these commands and then continue the lessons daily until your dog gets the idea. The traditional leash for walking comes in leather, nylon, or cotton. These leashes are the most common and are offered in numerous styles and decorations. Nylon leashes can have a reflective strip for added safety. These leashes come in various lengths however the six-foot length is what most local laws require.
