Having a six foot leash, like the one used in the video, is important in early training. Avoid using the extendable leashes until your dog is properly trained on the leash. We recommend using a leash like this one,
We recommend this one for two reasons that have a big impact on the success of your training. 1 – The slip knot is much more effective in creating communication between you and the dog. When used properly the slip knot is a faster way to let your dog know if his behavior is or is not desirable. 2- The circular design of the rope, instead of a flat leash design, is easier on your hands. Too often when you are training with a flat leash, especially if it is an older adult dog, the edges of the flat leash can quickly burn or cut your hand.
