How to Decide on a Dog Lead: Length & Material

One lead does not fit all. The lead that you choose for your forever friend should be based on your needs, your doggo, and the activities that you share.

Length

We recommend longer leads for dogs that are well-lead-trained. While your doggo learns leash etiquette, you will want to keep your dog at a slightly shorter lead to be able to control their movements more easily. 

Material

When it comes to lead materials, opt for a lead with a high-quality, rust-free latch or clip. Because your doggo’s lead is likely to get wet at some point, you want to invest in a lead that will last without locking up due to rust.

Padded leads work well for dogs that are learning how to walk on a lead and have a slight tendency to pull. The extra padded will keep your hand and wrist a bit more comfortable. These leads tend to take a bit longer to dry should they get wet, so you may one to keep an extra on-hand if your doggo loves to swim or walk in the rain.

Leather leads repel water and offer a secure hold on your doggo. 

How to choose the right lead for your doggo?

Unsure of what lead length and lead material are appropriate for your pup? Dogs still learning leash manners often benefit from shorter lengths. As your dog becomes a lead-walking like a pro, a longer lead will give them more freedom on walks. 

Smaller breeds do well with thinner leads, while thicker leads provide a bit more control for medium and large dog breeds. Padded leads are an excellent way to cushion your grip and make walks more comfortable. 

Leads for your puppy

Puppies aren’t born with the knowledge of collars and leads, but before they are very old, you need to start working with them. Start with a lightweight collar and lead, and just let your puppy wander around the house, getting used to the weight. 

Make sure the collar isn’t too tight–you should be able to easily slip a finger between the collar and your puppy’s neck. Remember to check the tightness of your puppy’s collar every few days since puppies tend to grow very fast.

When you go for walks, puppies do well on shorter leads. The shorter length allows you to keep your pup close to you and helps you more effectively teach them lead etiquette.

Leads for your adult dog

The length of lead depends on your doggo and the activities you participate in. Most leads are between 1.2 meters and 2 meters, with 1.8 metres being the most common. Just make sure that it is sturdy enough to restrain your doggo if they get excited by a passing bird or pushbike and decide to give chase.

Leads for small dogs

Most small dogs prefer leads that are a little longer, up to 2 metres. It gives them a little more freedom to explore, which they like. Just make sure that it is lightweight and doesn’t get tangled as you walk. Retractable leads work well with small dogs, so you might consider one of those.

Dog leads for different purposes (training, walking, hiking)

There are a wide variety of leads for a variety of purposes. There are long leads that are used to train your doggo to come, fetch and retrieve. They can also be used when training dogs to hunt. Care to take your doggo on a run with you? There are hands-free leads that attach to your waist. There are heavy-duty leads designed for hiking rugged trails with your best friend as well.

FAQ's

What are dog leads?
The lead is what connects you to your dog. They are to help you maintain control of your dog as well as help train them, as well.
Most leads connect to a collar or harness, but some are designed to connect directly to your dog. They come in a variety of colours, styles, and lengths. Most leads are set or fixed-length while others are adjustable. Others come with a plastic shell and are retractable. Some are made with highly reflective materials so that you and your dog can be seen at night.
Most leads are made to be held in your hand, but some are made to go around your waist so that you can have your hands free while walking or running with your doggo. There are even leads made to connect to your bike.
Have more than one dog? Well, look into the leads that have two or three clips so you can walk multiple dogs with just one lead. But beware–your doggoss still may tangle or tug on each other. You can even buy a lead that has a “shock absorber” built-in for those dogs that like to tug and lunge.
What is a training lead?
Dog training lead, as its name implies, is a lead that you use when you are training your dog. When it comes to teaching your doggo “recall,” you will want to use a longer lead at, 5-10 meters. While longer lengths work well when teaching your dog to come, shorter lengths work better when you are working on various aspects of your dog’s behaviour. It gives the dog a sense of freedom while still giving you control of your dog.
What is the difference between a dog leash and a lead?
In most cases, they are interchangeable. They both connect you to your dog and enable you to control your dog as you walk. Lead is the more common term in the UK and Australia, while the leash is used more often in the US.
Is a dog lead or harness better?
Most leads will connect directly to the collar or harness, but some leads are made to do the job of lead and harness. They have a loop that will fit over your dog's head and another that will slide over your doggo’s snout or around their chest. If your dog isn’t good on the lead, you will probably want a lead that connects to the harness. A collar-connecting lead can put pressure on their neck and trachea, causing discomfort and sometimes injuries. If they have good leash manners, they will probably be fine with the all-in-one style.
Are gentle leads OK for dogs?
Sure, but you have to remember that they are used to control your dog and they will not necessarily help you to train them. Most dogs like them and adjust to them quickly, but they might not be appropriate for large dogs that like to pull and lunge because they can harm your dog’s trachea and neck.
When should dogs use leads?
The lead connects you to your dog, and without a lead, it is difficult to control them. The lead will prevent them from chasing other dogs or critters, it will also prevent them from running into traffic and getting injured. In many places, you are required to keep your dog on a lead at all times. If you are in an enclosed area or you are out away from others and your dog will come when called, you can consider removing them from the lead. But always remember, the lead keeps both your dog and others safe.
What are dog leads made of?
Most leads are made of nylon, Biothane, leather, rope, or chain. There are advantages and disadvantages to each, but in the end, use your own judgment based on the size and temperament of your dog. If your dog is large and muscular, the lead needs to be sturdy enough to restrain them without breaking. Since there is such a variety available, try to find a lead that reflects you and your doggo.
How long should a dog lead be?
The length depends on what you and your doggo are doing and the size and temperament of your dog. If you are just using the lead for walking your furry friend, lengths of 1.2 metres to 2 meters tend to be most common. Most little dogs like longer leads while larger dogs feel more comfortable on short dog leads. You might opt for a longer lead to allow your doggo to explore all those wonderful smells a bit more, and it also gives them an opportunity to get off the sidewalk if they have to use the bathroom. Dog training leads can be anywhere from 4.5 metres to 9 metres in length. This gives the dog a little more separation from you as you are teaching them various commands. If you choose a longer lead, you can shorten it if needed simply by wrapping it around your hand a couple of times.
What dog lead is best for training?
You will want to use a long dog lead, from 4.5 metres to 9 metres in length. This will give your doggo the space needed so that you can teach them skills like come and fetch. They can also be used to help train dogs for hunting.
Can you wash dog leads?
All leads can be washed, but how easy it is to wash and care for varies by material. Biothane is a slick, smooth plastic that is very strong and resists tearing. It won’t absorb water so if it gets wet or dirty, you can just wipe it clean and dry it with a rag or towel. Nylon is easy to wash and clean but will take a little time to dry because it will absorb water. For rope and leather, wash by hand using a mild soap. If your dog has allergies, you might want to use the shampoo that you use when you bathe them to wash your lead. You can wash nylon and rope leads in your washing machine by putting them in a garment bag with a couple of towels to pad them so the metal hardware doesn’t damage your machine.
