If you own a dog, that means you must own a dog leash. Having a leash is a fundamental part of having a dog. There a variety type of leashes for different types of dogs and different environments, so make sure you find the right fit for both you and your dog. If you are in an open area but still want access to your dog from a distance, you can get a retractable leash or a long leash. These provide the dog more freedom while still keeping them safely attached to you.
