If you own a dog I am pretty sure you own a dog leash. Nylon or leather, solid or retractable, which one is right for your dog?
The Flexi Classic Retractable Lead comes in several vibrant colors and sizes for any dog. This leash gives your dog more freedom than the standard nylon leashes or it can be locked in place at a shorter length when necessary.
The Top Paw Nylon Check Cord is perfect for training and field work. This six foot nylon lead is strong enough to keep the toughest dogs under control.
The Top Paw Reflective Dog Lead is a good choice for walking your dog at night; the reflection of the lead and matching collar will help oncoming drivers notice you. If you are like me and prefer leather leads, you may like the Premium Latigo lead. With shiny brass hardware and double tanned, this leather lead will soften with age.
The Hamilton Products Deluxe Nylon leads are available in many different colors and are made of rugged nylon webbing with a swivel snap.
The Puff Dog Lead with Bones is a pretty yet sturdy leash in colorful pink or blue with polished silver tone hardware and three dog bone studs. There is also a matching collar for this playful lead. Dog Paws and Dog Bones Leashes are sure to get your pup noticed when walking in the park. Whether you have a boisterous hunting dog or a petite lap dog, there are many dog leashes available to keep your dog on a leash.
If you are a dog lover, you may feel that one dog is not enough. However, before you add a second dog to your household, there are a few important points you should consider. First, you may want to consider your dog’s nature. If your beloved pet is a bit of a bully and the new dog isn’t submissive, there are going to be some major battles before they sort out which dog is in charge.
Sometimes, two dogs are equally dominant and these battles flare up again and again. By the time you visit your veterinarian for the fourth or fifth time to have their battle scars treated, you may be regretting the purchase of a second dog. If your dog is very submissive, you may also have problems, as the new dog could bully your first dog and make his life miserable. Hopefully, you have a dog that does not lean too far in either direction. When you have a submissive dog at home, never buy a puppy that refuses to let you turn it over and cradle it upside down in your arms. When a puppy lets you hold it like you would hold an infant, it is a sign that the puppy is willing to be submissive.
Next, you should consider your current dog’s size. If you have a Yorkshire Terrier, you may not want to buy a Boxer puppy. A big, rowdy puppy can hurt a small dog quite a few times before it realizes its own strength. If you currently own a big dog who has a great temperament, you may be able to add a small breed puppy to the family, but you will have to be prepared to keep a close eye on the dogs at first when they are together. More than one Standard Poodle or Saint Bernard has become the devoted protector of a tiny lap dog.
Do you have an unaltered female dog? These dogs often are upset when another female dog enters their domain. You may need to alter your dog before she will accept another female. She may still show some aggression after being spayed, so a male puppy may be a wiser choice. (Of course, you will have to alter at least one of your dogs unless you want to suddenly be the proud owner of 6 or 8 dogs.)
If you have an older dog, you may want to reconsider buying a puppy. to adjust to a dog who has finished teething and chewing. Finally, some breeds of dogs have more trouble accepting a new puppy than other breeds. Some of the toy breeds become a bit spoiled and jealous of other dogs.
If you have a pampered Yorkshire Terrier or Miniature Pinscher, you may find that introducing the new puppy can be a bit of a challenge. Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, and other breeds that have problems with aggression may have problems, as well. However, each dog is an individual and some dogs who are members of these breeds have no problem accepting a new puppy.
