Studies show benefits of using a shock absorbing coiled leash.

As responsible dog owners, we know that maintaining control over our dog’s behavior means keeping them safe, injury free, and healthy. Owning a pet is a huge responsibility sometimes, but there are ways to make it less stressful. Let’s address leash laws and enjoying the basics of a good dog walk today.

Just about every state in the US has instituted some form of leash law or restraining order for dogs (most are 6 feet and under). Reasons for leash laws include: to keep our pets safe, keep relations between neighbors friendly, maintain a safe community, and prevent damage to property.

A good dog walk includes enjoying the scenery (for both dog and owner), and getting exercise that keeps us both fit. In order to do that, it is imperative to assure that our pet is trained without causing injury. Research indicates that neck injuries in dogs occur when poor leash and collar combination's cause sudden jerks against the throat and neck. These neck injuries can mimic whiplash in a human or bruising as if someone had tried to strangle us.
