About Ancol Dog Leads
Ancol dog leads FAQs
What are Ancol dog leads made out of?
Ancol dog leads are available in a wide variety of materials, including leather, chain, and nylon. They usually come with a clip that can securely fasten to a metal ring on the collar. This can help you be in more control of your dog.
Ancol leads come in different colours. What do these colours mean?
There are four different types of Ancol dog leads: chain, fashion, leather, nylon/polyweave, and retractable. Typically, pet owners opt for colours that best suit their style but, in actual fact, the colours used for dog leads can have specific meanings. Red – you should approach the dog with caution. Green – the dog is friendly with people and other dogs. Yellow – the dog is anxious and nervous. Blue – the dog is in training or is a working dog.
How long should an Ancol dog lead be?
The most common length for a dog lead is 6ft, and it's ideal for walking in neighbourhoods or parks. A lead of this length allows your dog to explore its environment, without it getting tangled around your dog's legs.
Should I use retractable dog leads?
Retractable leads offer the owner more control over the length of the lead, allowing them to increase or decrease it at will. However, as retractable leads have a rope-like cord, they can cause burns, entanglement, deep cuts or even strangulation, if not used properly. If you grab the cord while you pull the lead, you could end up with a pretty nasty rope burn. You must also be careful when using these near busy roads, as your dog may run out onto the road if the lead isn't locked into position.
