Decide between a collar and harness based on your dog's size and breed. Harnesses provide better control for larger or excitable dogs.
The collar or harness fits snugly but not too tight. You should be able to fit two fingers between the collar and your dog's neck.
The right material for your dog's collar. Nylon is durable, leather is stylish, and some dogs prefer softer materials like neoprene.
Select an appropriate leash length for your needs. Short leashes for control, longer ones for freedom, and retractable leashes for versatility.
Look for safety features like reflective strips or LED lights on collars and leashes, especially for nighttime walks.
Consider training aids like martingale collars for dogs that tend to slip out of regular collars. These provide added security.
Enjoy a variety of stylish options. Collars and leashes come in various colors, patterns, and designs to suit your dog's personality.
