German Shepherd

German Shepherd

German Shepherds are strong dogs, so you want to make sure to get the most durable and suitable leash and collar for your shepherd. If you want to use a harness, you should use one with a leash clip in the front rather than the back, which will help in retaining the dog from pulling. Leather leashes would work better than nylon leashes because they are easier on your hands. If you train your German Shepherd not to pull, the type of leash or collar would not matter as much.

As for collars, German Shepherds have a unique shaped head, which makes it especially important to choose a collar that fits properly. When the collar is fitted correctly, you should be able to slide two fingers between the dog’s neck and collar. The collar should be 1-1.5 inches wide with a durable buckle mechanism to prevent the dog from breaking free. If you are in the midst of training your shepherd, a choke collar, head collar, or harness would suit best. It may also be best to have both a conventional and a training collar on hand. A good conventional collar would be Gibdog’s “SL – Standard Leash.”
