Leather is an excellent choice for dog products, thanks to its affordable, flexible, durable and comfy nature. For these reasons, investing in leather collars and leashes is a smart move for both walking and training your dog. Unfortunately, no collar or leash can serve as a panacea for all your needs. That’s why choosing the perfect leather dog collars and leashes is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make for your furry companion.
Here are handy tips for picking the right pet collars and leashes for your pooch.
Choosing the Right Size
With dog collars and leashes, a one-size-fits-all approach will not help you get the ideal item for your furry friend. Every dog is different! With dog collars, you need to consider his size and make sure that the collar you buy is snug but not tight. You should order with custom sizing for your dog’s specific head and neck size to get things right the first time. A general rule is that you need to be able to easily slip two fingers between the collar and the dog’s neck. If you’re not sure on how to measure the collar size, use Woofwerks Sizing Guide.
Similarly, you need to go for a standard length (4-6ft) leash for everyday use and a retractable lead if you want to give your pooch a little freedom to roam in a safe public place.
Picking the Perfect style
There are many styles of leather pet collars and leashes to choose from depending on your dog’s size, disposition, and your training needs. Picking the wrong items can introduce adverse physical and behavioral side effects. Some dogs in collars can easily strangle themselves in a myriad of ways when running with other dogs or living around crates or gates in the home. That’s why you need to ensure that the collar you buy is safe and comfortable for your canine companion. For everyday use, the ideal collar should be durable yet comfortable with options for adjustments. “Breakaway” collars might be a nice option for you, while they keep your dog safe from harm during playtime, daycare, and other accidents with a quick-release buckle. Correction collars (shock, citronella, prong, and choke collars) are not recommended, as they may cause pain to your pet. At Woofwerks, we recommend a high quality leather or nylon-leather dog collar for durability and comfort!
Buying the Perfect Leather Material
There are different types of leather used to make collars and leashes including Bison leather and Italian leather to English bridle leather. Luckily, choosing the perfect leather is a no-brainer. Vegetable- tanned English Bridle leather made from top quality hides is by far the preferable leather material among dog lovers. Here is why Woofwerks English bridle leather collars and leashes are the real deal.
