Who wants to go with his dog without great incidences Gassi should get used to it already in the young puppy age on leash and collar. The first attempt in dealing with leash and collar should start in your own home or house. Let the dog first sniff on the leash.
Once he has grasped the smell and accepted it, put the leash and collar around him and talk to him in a very quiet tone so that the puppy realizes that you just do not want him harm.
When this step is done, it is best to let the puppy run with the leash and collar in the house. Once the puppy has no problem with the new thing around his neck, a first tentative attempt can be launched outdoors.
It is important that the dog quickly realizes that he has to follow the owner and not the other way around. When it comes the first time with a leash in front of the door, the dog is first on an exploration tour and distracted. Of course, he has the right to sniff, sniff and discover.
Nevertheless, the owners should make it clear that the dog is wearing a leash and only enjoys a limited clearance.
In buses, trains, restaurants and busy roads, a free-roaming dog has no business.
Which leash is the right one?
Collars, leashes and harnesses for puppies are available in thousands of different colors and materials today.
In the education of a puppy the color is irrelevant, it serves only the optical perception of the owner. The material, on the other hand, provides information about resistance to tearing and resistance.
The collars especially for puppies are usually made of a durable webbing, which is covered with soft fleece or other soft fabrics. A dog harness should only be used if the dog constantly pulls and tugs.
If the dog then only has a leash on, pulling and tugging can cause serious back damage, damage to the cervical spine, and neck injuries. Through a dog harness, the dog brakes itself out and thus does not lead to injury.
A towing leash is only used in the puppy upbringing if the dog walks away again and again and neither voluntarily comes back nor responds to commands.
