I’m very particular about how I keep my dog controlled when we walk. It’s not that I don’t want him to have free reign. It’s just that there is too much going on around us, which can be a distraction.
For instance, he loves to chase squirrels and cats, so if I don’t see them, you know he will, and then he’s off and running.
Likewise, other people allow their dogs to run loose, which is beyond inconsiderate. They come barreling toward us, and then my dog starts going, too.
Needless to say, an unbreakable retractable dog leash is needed so that he doesn’t get too far away and into a dangerous situation.
When the first retractable leads came out years ago, they weren’t that good. They were so thin they tangled up and invariably broke or frayed. They were at best only good for tiny dogs that didn’t weigh too much and didn’t put much strain on the lead.
As time passed, more big dog owners wanted to have something that allowed their dogs to go farther, while still having the ability to pull them back when needed.
Eventually, manufacturers listened, and newer, stronger models were made.
