Dog LeadsA dog lead is an essential accessory and you are spoiled for choice. The Time for Paws range will give you the perfect lead for your needs whether you are searching for an extendable dog lead, a dog training lead, a double dog lead or dog leads to stop pulling. Chosen from the Ancol, Clix Training, Flexi, Halti and Rogz collections plus more, our leads offer the durability and practical features you need to enjoy walking with your pet.
How to choose a dog lead
A standard lead features a loop handle at one end and a clip to attach it to your dog’s collar at the other end. Fashioned from leather or nylon, standard leads are available in a variety of lengths and are great for everyday use. You can select either a flat style or one of our rope dog leads. If your dog is given to chewing their lead, consider investing in a chain which is heavier but which cannot be destroyed by your pooch.
If you like to let your dog wander but without allowing him off the lead, consider a retractable dog lead. These feature a nylon band or cord which is several metres long that retracts into a plastic case with a handle. The lead can be locked in place at any length and boasts a mechanism similar to that of a measuring tape.
Slip leads for dogs are all-in-one collars and leads which are useful during training or if your pet continues to pull. The lead loops onto itself and goes over the dog's head. Some styles boast plastic tubes which slide down to help keep the collar in place. If you or your dog pulls on the lead, the collar part will tighten. This type of lead can be dangerous if used incorrectly as it can restrict your pet’s breathing but will teach your dog not to pull.
Do you need more than one dog lead?
It is always useful to keep more than one lead to hand. Many dog owners like to have different leads for daily walks, hiking, cycling and running. You may also find that some of the special features which are available prove to be extremely useful. Grippy handles can help you to keep control of a boisterous hound while reflective elements enhance safety after dark. You will also discover leads with built in poo bag holders. One lead may not be ideal for all of your activities and it’s always good to have a spare in the cupboard.
