About Hunter Dog Leads
Frequently asked questions about Hunter dog leads
Can my dog escape a slip lead?
You may worry that your dog can escape a slip lead. In this case, you may want to choose a harness. A slip lead will tighten and actually prevent your dog from slipping out of their collar, but it is possible for them to slip away if the lead becomes too loose.
What lead should I get for my puppy?
For a puppy, you should use a double-ended lead that has a front-attach harness. A double-ended lead is made by threading the handles of two normal leads together - or, if you find it easier, you can buy one. One end of the lead is clipped to the front of the harness. The other one is placed to the back of the harness.
Can I get a slip lead for my puppy?
Yes, you can, but keep in mind that slip leads should be used temporarily – under no circumstance should they be used for training puppies, especially when it comes to pulling.
Should I walk in front of my dog?
You can train your dog to always walk to heel, but the idea that you must always walk in front of your dog is not accurate. It’s based on an outdated understanding of pack dynamics. Always showing your dog ‘who’s boss’ can actually create an adversarial relationship with your animal that causes stress and anxiety for you both. As long as your dog is not pulling on their lead, letting them walk in front of you is fine.
How long should a dog training lead be?
For training, you will need a fairly long lead. Trainers recommend one between 1 and 1.5 metres long. Avoid retractable leads, because they are not made for training.
