There's a lot to look forward to a fun. Days of playing with her and taking walks feeding her teaching her tricks taking walks cuddling on the couch with her and yes taking more walks. Dogs require walks. The obvious reason is that they have to go out to do their business meaning urinate and defecate. The frequency depends on the breed. But if you live in an apartment or a house without a fenced yard where they can roam freely to take care of the call of nature as the adult in the room you are responsible for taking them out to a designated area where they can go and you can clean up after them but there's more to it than that dogs need lots of exercise. They need to burn off energy and socialized dogs. Hello Dog Park. Walks are an important part of your dogs. Daily routine and that means you're pups leash is a crucial canine accessory. But there are a dizzying number of options. So we he talked to an expert about her favourite leash and why she recommends it Susie. Aga- is a nationally recognized dog trainer an expert in dog behavior modification and the founder of Atlanta dog trainer. She has decades of dog training experience and has clear preferences about leashes for starters. She never recommends a retractable leash. She explained they're very popular leashes but everyone hates them. It's irritating for the dogs on the leash. They've got constant tension on them and it's irritating for humans in the community most pet owners. Don't ruin their dogs. They just let them wrap up. Whoever's walking by retractable leashes are dangerous? Dogs and humans. How many times have you been strolling along in the park minding your business? When suddenly there's a Doberman Pinscher staring at you a good twenty to thirty feet or six to nine meters away from its owner also retractable? Leads can hurt you the dog Walker. Should you attempt to grab it in case of an emergency it could give you a rope. Burn and be leashes are infamous for snapping due to strain or mechanical mechanical failure and whipping back with high force toward the walkers body and face Aga- also doesn't recommend the slip lead which is basically a slipknot allowing knowing you to slip your dog's head through the loop and poll to tighten Think of those leashes you get at the vet but they can be very dangerous. She said I don't like them. Because it puts that's a lot of pressure on the dogs. Trachea can cause a lot of damage. Aga's leash recommendation is a basic six foot or approximately two meter braided leather leash with brass fittings the clips onto the dog's collar or harness. Whichever the dog wears when walking Aga- says six feet is plenty long for every breed of dog to get away to use the bathroom the only time she doesn't recommend the brass fittings is for small dogs because the brass can be too heavy for those smaller dogs try stainless steel or aluminum fittings fittings instead ag- explained a leather leashes last a really long time? I've got one leash. That's fifteen years old. Most leashes available in the market are made of reinforced. Nylon or cloth webbing some even have carbon-fiber with an into them others are made of nylon rope. Aga- says those are fine but to be prepared hard to keep buying them she said nylon leashes even the ones that are sturdy. webbing are fine but they don't last. As long as leather dogs can chew through them and then the owners ended up tying them in nuts. There's a lot of stuff in the dog world designed to make you buy more as a trainer. I want something that's going to last a long time. Aga- says all all dogs should wear collars so that they always have tags on the leash clips onto the caller. Some dog breeds though benefit from wearing a harness when they go for walks especially large. Large breeds like huskies or Bernese mountain dogs and much smaller ones. such as toy breeds or puppies. Harnesses are good for dogs. Who pull a lot too? I explained harnesses are designed. So there's less pulling front clip harnesses seemed to work best for that and you don't want to put a lot of pressure on the trachea of a small breed so a lot of toy breeds. I use harnesses rather than color because of how small they are. This episode was written by Patty Rassmussen introduced by Tyler claim steps production of iheartradio's.
