A REPOST … Because it’s that important to me.

Dog owners far and wide, PLEASE get rid of your retractable leashes! I abhor the device and feel it needs to be banned. I do NOT understand why so many favor it, other than pure laziness.

Retractable leashes are dangerous for pets and their handlers. They teach your dog horrible leash manners, primarily pulling. They also have a huge potential to cause injury to both the dog and the handler.  In addition, when you visit us at the vet’s office, you put your dog, our staff and other pet owners at risk.

Read my previous post here.

If you use a retractable leash and have a rebuttal please contact me.  I would love to discuss other leash training options with you.
