Dog Leash Is a Must-Have for Bulldog Walking and Training

View #1. I Choose Flexi Dog Leash

I prefer flexi usage. There are some imperfections by no means, f.e. the dog is much more difficult kept under control with the help of flexi. Why flexi is my choice? It may seem for someone that it's my Bulldog has taken me for a walk and not the reverse. But I don't think about self-affirmation. My Bulldog likes to sniff everything and the aim of his walks is to run, to smell and do its duties. That's why flexi is the very accessory for us.

This model has comfortable handle, which doesn't slide out of the hand. You have to adapt to flexi. First it will be not so convenient for you to use this leash, especially when you want to pull up your Bulldog immediately.

Bulldog Leash Should Be Safe, Reliable and Convenient

There are tape and rope flexi leashes. Rope has grave disadvantage – it can hurt a hand or legs if Bulldog run suddenly and the lead touched them. That's why never try to catch the rope with your hands.

Tape is less traumatizing. The main point is not to buy Chinese copycats. Choose only quality flexi dog leashes of famous dog trademarks (like this one you can see on the photo above). You will pay more, but the leash will serve you for a long time.

Dog leash is my choice. It's very difficult for me to control my Bulldog with flexi. I should keep my finger on fixing button all the time so that I could click – fix, click – release the fixation in time. Rope is tangled in trees, bushes in the flicker of a second.

Bulldog feels discomfort when plays on flexi tape and it's even dangerous for the dog. Besides, when you hear loud clicks and the noise of flexi leash in the dark, you always expect that a dog's owner will amputate your legs with flexi lead. Usual dog leash is much simpler.

First, because the length of the leash (2.5 – 3 m) is enough to give Bulldog freedom. You can always pull up your Bulldog when you need and walk it alongside. You can hold the leash by two hands if the dog pulls on the leash. You can change the speed of your Bulldog. Even unavoidable pulling at sudden stop can be softened by your hand's absorption. You can speed up, slow down and take your Bulldog aside with subtle movement of your fingers if you have enough experience.
