Walking the dog collar and leash are helpful accessories for managing our days with the dog. Thanks to them, we can take our favourite dog for a walk safely and without problems.

But is it also possible to choose these accessories with an eye to fashion and aesthetics? The answer is undoubtedly yes. Here are some tips for finding the best leash and collar for our four-legged friends, perhaps even matching it with suitable clothing.

Dog walking accessories. Functionality first

The first thing to consider when choosing our best friend’s collar and leash is functionality. Buying a very light and thin collar for our large dog may not be a good idea, especially if our friend decides to “pull” on the lead. Similarly, a weighty object if our favourite is a puppy a few months old or a small dog.

With the arrival of autumn, some dogs, especially puppies, the very old, or those with health problems, may need help fighting the cold.

A collar and leash are the right pair of accessories for walking your dog

So, let’s first determine which leash-collar combination is most suitable for our friend. Each dog is an individual case, and much also depends on the education received.

To put it bluntly, a dog that understands how to go composed on a leash will have no problem going for a walk, even with a collar and a very light lead. In contrast, a dog needing instruction that tends to ‘pull’ may be challenging to handle on a leash, regardless of size.

We can say that more massive and robust tools are more suitable for large, strong animals. On the other hand, thinner and lighter ones are more suitable for smaller animals and puppies.

Dog walking accessories. Cool but trendy

Fixed collars are perhaps the most common on the market; their main characteristic is that their size does not change. They close with a buckle-type system and can be made of different materials, ranging from leather to synthetic and other materials, such as wool, canvas, leather nylon or even nautical rope.

The thickness of the collar is variable and, as mentioned, must be chosen according to the characteristics of our friend. As far as colours and patterns are concerned, on the other hand, we can indulge ourselves among the many proposals on the market.

Greenlight to collars with the most varied motifs, perhaps embellished with studs, rhinestones, special inserts, or real jewel buckles.

Often, collars are available on the market with a matching leash, which takes up the collar’s size and pattern for an effect of great elegance.

Beware of measurements

As mentioned, the fixed collar has the characteristic of not changing its size, so when we put it on our friend, we must ensure that it is not too loose because it would risk losing it or being too tight. After all, it would cause discomfort to our fur.

The ideal size collar should be about one centimetre wider than the dog’s neck so that it does not tighten but at the same time does not slip off. If, however, it is a long-haired dog that is regularly groomed, remember that we will need different-sized collars, larger when Fido has longer hair and narrower when the hair is shorter.

Harness, mon amour

An alternative to collars that is very popular with an ever-growing segment of dog lovers is the harness, which, as the name suggests, ‘wraps’ around Fido’s chest and does not cause pressure or discomfort on our friend’s neck.

And for those who fear that the harness may be a somewhat ‘anonymous’ or unstylish object, we have good news: the harness can also be an excellent accessory to look at, practical and functional.

Many models are on the market; many harnesses are embellished with studs or trendy details, while others are made of fabrics in the most varied patterns. Finally, some models are designed as genuine ‘jackets’ for pets and are very effective when the temperatures get colder.

Passe-partout solutions

The collar or harness goes with the leash and is a necessary complement to the other if we want to walk with our friend in peace and safety. You can play a lot with the combination of these accessories, matching them for similarity or contrast.

As mentioned, some companies offer solutions with a matching collar leash (which can also be a lovely gift idea for a dog-loving friend). Still, plenty of Passepartout solutions are on the market, such as the black leash, which is suitable for practically all occasions.

There is also a type of extendable leash, which is very popular. It is extendable and efficient to store, even in the bag (when not in use, the entire leash is folded into the plastic handle that forms the leash’s grip).

This is available in many colours and patterns, and we must choose the most suitable match for our chosen collar or harness.

Allies against the cold

With the arrival of autumn, some of our friends, especially older ones, puppies or dogs in general who can hardly stand the cold, may need protection with a coat or other piece of dog clothing.

Fear not; here, too, the options are almost unlimited. The market has coats, sweatshirts and natural dog clothes of all sizes and pockets. Combine them with a suitable collar and leash, and create outfits that give your dog the ‘edge’ on walks. Trying is believing.
