Dog accessories for walking your dog: from leads to light-up harnesses
Do you always have everything you need with you when you leave the house with your dog? The most important dog accessories for small dogs and large four-legged friends are, of course, a lead and collar or dog harness. In public, the dog should also be on a lead for its own safety; in some places, leads are even compulsory. With a suitable combination of lead and collar, you will always have your dog under control. You can also attach important information such as a name tag to the collar. You can also consider accessories such as luminous and reflective materials for walking at dusk and in the dark when choosing dog accessories. This way, your four-legged friend is perfectly equipped for every outing.
What do I need to consider when choosing a dog lead or dog collar?
The most important criteria when choosing dog accessories such as dog collars or dog harnesses are as follows:
Size: Dog accessories for large dogs have to withstand different stresses than their counterparts for very small dogs. When choosing a collar or harness, use the manufacturer’s measurement charts as a guide: dog harnesses or collars should not fit too tightly, but should also not allow the dog to slip out. Small dogs should have correspondingly light leads.
Material: The most common materials for collars, dog leads and the like are synthetic materials such as nylon or paracord, leather and sometimes metal in chain form. Each variant has its advantages and disadvantages: Leather is more expensive but almost indestructible when properly cared for, nylon is practical and offers great visual variety. Choose what best suits your practical needs and taste.
What else should be included as an accessory when walking the dog?
Does your dog love games of fetch? Then take a toy with you that is only for games when you go out together, such as a special ball, a rope for tug-of-war games or a dog frisbee. Your four-legged friend will associate their toy with the outing and be motivated to go for a walk. Food dummies, which are filled with small treats and used as retrieval toys, are particularly popular and helpful for training dogs. The dog cannot get to the coveted snacks without the help of its human and therefore reliably brings them back. Indispensable dog accessories, especially for walks in residential areas, parks or agricultural areas, are poo bags with which you can hygienically and discreetly remove the dog’s excrement and dispose of it in the waste.
