Your dog is a wonderful friend, and you have watched him grow quite a bit in the time you’ve spent together. This doesn’t just mean physically. In fact, he has grown quite a bit in his skills as well, particularly when walking on a leash. Should you get him a longer leash to try out?
Your pet may be ready to have some more freedom if he is listening well and behaving appropriately when you are out and about. However, there are other factors to consider as well. Think about the areas you spend your time in. Some may be more suitable for a longer leash than others, and some may not be appropriate for one at all. If you plan on walking your pet in crowded areas or places where he will need to stay by your side anyway, a longer leash won’t really be of much use. For more information, please contact your local Wake Forest, NC vet.
