The Dog leash or lead
A leash or a lead is a rope or similar material attached to the neck of the dog for restraint or control. Some leashes clip or tie to collars or harnesses, while others go directly around the dog's neck.
Purposes of a leash include:
IS THE BEST WAY TO DEVELOP AN AFFECTIONATE PET, as the cord connects you together encouraging an unique bonding between you and your dog.
IS THE BEST WAY TO KEEP YOUR DOG SAFE, restraining it from darting into traffic, preventing injuries, suffering, death and huge veterinary bills. Moreover, if in a fight with another dog, the dog roaming free is at fault instead of the restrained dog.
IS AN IMPORTANT DEMONSTRATION TO THE PUBLIC, confirming that dog owners can be responsible, considerate people with an equal concern for the community and its residents.
IS THE BEST GOOD NEIGHBOR POLICY, keeping your dog from trespassing, attacking other animals, becoming a neighborhood nuisance or violating community leash laws. It also stops your pet from inflicting injuries on children and adults. It prevents your insurance company from dropping your homeowner’s policy because of your dog.
IS THE BEST IDENTIFICATION SERVICE, with a current dog license and name tag attached to the collar, it will help reunite you both, should your dog get lost.
IS THE BEST WILDLIFE AND ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION, keeping your dog from harassing our wildlife, destroying irreplaceable native plants, or killing expensive livestock by itself or as part of a wild dog pack.
IS ALSO THE BEST CRIME PREVENTION DEVICE, because when this leash is not in use, your dog will be at home protecting your family and property.
IS THE BEST BIRTH CONTROL DEVICE, preventing unplanned pregnancies and unwanted puppies.
Many cities have passed legislation that require dogs to be on leash in public areas.
