Dog Leads, Collars, and Harnesses

Walking your dog is healthy for them, and gives them mental stimulation and a chance to sniff lots of things. It also gets you out of the house for a walk too, but we won’t go into that. You can either use a lead attached to a collar, or a harness, to take your dog for a walk. Each has its benefits, but its what suits your dog best. If your dog is energetic and likes to pull hard on the lead while walking, a harness is preferable. If your dog is more well-behaved, a lead and collar is perfectly fine.

What's the difference between a dog lead, collar, and harness

  • A dog lead, commonly known as a leash, is used for controlling and walking a dog. 
  • A collar is worn around the dog's neck and is where the lead attaches. Collars are suitable for well-trained dogs. 
  • A harness, however, wraps around the dog's body, reducing strain on the neck. It's ideal for dogs that pull or have respiratory issues, providing better control and comfort during walks.

How do I know if I need a dog lead, collar, or harness?

Choosing between a dog lead, collar, or harness depends on your dog's behaviour and needs. A collar is suitable for well-behaved dogs. A harness is better for dogs that pull or have respiratory issues. A lead (leash) is essential for controlling your dog during walks, regardless of the collar or harness chosen.
