Looking to treat your dog—and yourself—to a new leash for your daily walks? Most pet parents opt for nylon leashes because they come in fun colors, are affordable, and can be easily purchased from any pet store or big box retailer. But while nylon leashes usually get the job done, they often cause terrible leash burns, lack of grip, and fraying. To avoid these problems altogether, try handmade leather dog leashes leash instead.
It's common for dog owners (especially new dog parents) to want to buy the brightest and trendiest leash, or go for the cheaper alternative of a store-brand nylon leash. But there are several reasons why leather dog leashes are a better option. Here are some of them
Although leather is not entirely indestructible to chewing, it is much stronger in comparison to nylon. Furthermore, a leash made of treated leather will withstand the elements and almost never looks dirty or dingy. And unlike nylon, leather dog leashes become softer with time without losing their durability.
Easier on the Hands
Nylon leashes can cause skin irritation, especially if your dog is a puller. Leather, on the other hand, is much stronger and more comfortable to hold. It even adapts its shape to fit your hand over time. Plus, it's much gentler on your skin compared to nylon because it is not abrasive.
Better Grip and Control
Ever wonder why most dog trainers recommend or even require using a leather leash during obedience training? That's because leather dog leashes provide good grip stability. They are less likely to slip out of your hands when your dog lunges or pulls. And if they get wet, they will not become slippery like nylon leashes would.
Although leather leashes are usually more expensive than nylon ones, they last longer and look timeless—perfect for you and your stylish dog.
