As a dog trainer, it's extremely important to me to have a leash that's long enough to allow my dogs to run while still giving me total control. I had to have the best possible leash CUSTOM MADE - because you basically can't find a leash like this in your local pet shop. Or online, for that matter.

Long lines are very important in dog training because we always want to set our clients up for success. Long lines are utilized during recall or off leash training when we want to ensure the dogs will come back to us when they are called. Lighter weight long lines can be a stepping stone to off leash work. Materials used for long lines include nylon, rope, biothane, and leather. Nylon and rope are lighter and cheaper, while biothane and leather are a sturdier, but more expensive option. Biothane is also waterproof, which can be beneficial in long lines since they drag the ground.However, even the best trained dogs are often required to wear a leash due to local leash laws. Leash laws are generally enforced in parks and other protected areas. However, even where dog owners are not required to put leashes on their dogs, dogs running at large may be subjected to impoundment.Bungee leashes are exactly what they sound like. These leashes have a bungee portion that absorbs shock. These are good for your clients with dogs who are heavy pullers. They absorb the shock when the dog bolts out and reduces the amount of jerk that makes it to your client. While your clients are training with their dogs, these may be a good idea in case an accident occurs. A bungee leash that I have personally used with success is the leash. The nice thing about this leash is that it can also be used as a waist leash!A good training leash is a 6-foot cotton web leash — it’s easy on the hands, easily manipulated, and just the right length. It’s also the most economical. For the average-size or larger dog, use a cotton web leash that’s 1/2-inch wide. For toy dogs, use a leash that’s 1/4-inch wide. Always stop your training sessions BEFORE the dog gets frustrated. This usually means leash training should be broken down into several short sessions. But if your dog seems relaxed and enthusiastic, and you can fit all three steps into one long session, great! For other dogs, this process can take a few weeks of consistent training (or longer if it’s inconsistent)Because these can take a long time to explain and relatively little time to show, I’m sharing some video of my favorite loose-leash walking training techniques. I shared an intro to loose-leash walking last week, and here is part two, which features some tips for reinforcing small dogs; how to hold your leash, clicker, and treats; and introduces Karen Pryor’s “Connect the Dots” exercise.
