Dog Collars and Leads
Items 1-12 of 327
Dogs, as fun as it may be running around free, many local by-laws now require that you be kept on a lead in public spaces. These don’t have to be boring however, there’s a wide variety available here at Equipet! From dangling chains to delicate floral prints, bold tartan and brilliant hands-free. Even extendable leads that seem to go on for miles and miles! But dog leads connecting to what? The debate over collars vs harness’ has only increased in recent years, with strong support on both sides.
Collars come in a million sizes and patterns. Predominantly being the primary purchase upon deciding to get a pet, they cater to everyone and everytail! A puppy collar will be smaller to fit a tiny neck, there are handsome bowties for fancy occasions, and some owners may choose to use a training collar to help assist them. Collars get some stick for dogs with respiratory problems, as an over excited dog may pull against his collar and hurt his throat in the process. For day-to-day life, a collar is the perfect place for hanging a dog tag. A good tag (ideally with your phone number and your own name) is a necessary precaution, should anyone decide to go on a solo adventure and get lost.
A dog harness is slightly different, though they do also come in many shades and colours. The shape of the harness helps keep the throat area free, and distributes pressure around a dogs body much more evenly. They come in front and back attaching styles; front suiting larger dogs and back suiting smaller. A puppy harness is a great way to train a new friend how to walk around with less potential for choking, as you have more control overall! An adjustable dog car harness is an option for people who travel around with their furry friends too; they keep a dog in place on a seat with the freedom to move somewhat but much fewer chances for jumping around or into the front seat! This is a much more enjoyable experience than a travel crate or the boot.
