While there is some information out there about the proper way to hold a pet leash and how to leash train your pet, I didn’t realize they could be so dangerous. That’s right – retractable leashes do come with a hefty list of dangers – for you and your pet.
Unfortunately, I was unaware of these dangers and had purchased a retractable leash (after all, it is what my family had always used to walk our family dog). It wasn’t until I began walking our dog along with my children (ages 3 and 4) that I began to see the dangers first hand. So, I began to investigate the dangers of retractable leashes, and wanted to share this information for all pet owners out there – especially, if you are in the market for a new leash.
On my way home, I will be purchasing a new leash for my precious pup – one that doesn’t double as a decapitating machine. Hopefully, after reading this, you will be informed about the danger of some leashes and it allows you to make a better choice for your pet.
