When you are selecting a leash, collar, dog harness, or a muzzle really depends on your personal needs and choices.
On all four of my dogs, Shepherds, Golden Retriever, and Border Collie, I use adjustable choke chains (my preference over leather collar) for their collar. I just have not had the need for anything else. All I have is one nylon 6-foot walking chain. I have never had to use it in public because my dogs are so well trained. With that said, I spoke to a dog trainer in person who trains dogs for a living and asked his advice on this subject.
His answers to me were:
It all depends on the dog owner’s situation with their dog’s demeanor and training. Use a chock collar to train pups or even older dogs just obtained from pulling and other training exercises such as sitting, standing by your side, walking on your left side, etc.. Once training has been completed and the normal dog issues have been solved, you can, if you want, go to a nylon or leather collar. Leashes are all dog owners preference whether it be chainlink or nylon.
Leash size and material should be chosen based on the size and weight of your dog. Standard leash lengths vary between 4 to 6 feet, with widths between 3/8ths of an inch to 1-inch wide.
Bob was against owners using Retractable Leashes. Reason for owner: you want your dog to have the freedom to explore while still being attached to you, but oftentimes these retractable leashes cause more problems than that freedom is worth. Not only do retractable leashes teach a dog that pulling on the leash is acceptable, but retractable leashes can also cause injury to both other people or themselves and to their dogs, but that doesn’t mean you can’t use one responsibly if you want.
Adjustable leashes are a good option for when you need to shorten the leash temporarily, need to tether your dog to your body or to a tree or post, or even walk two dogs at once using one leash. It is a great leash for attaching to both your dog’s collar and their front-attachment harness. Instead of a regular handle, this type of leash has clasps on both ends and rings at different intervals of the leash length. Based on where you attach one clasp to determines the size of the handle and the length of the leash.
