For owners who have medium to large sized breeds, walking the pet can be challenging. Yet, a good walk is an important part of their health.
Medium and large sized breeds can be difficult to handle since they have a tendency and much energy to pull. Making use of no pull leashes usually gives the owner the control over the whole body instead of just the head and neck.
Additionally, it allows the pet to walk more readily by a person’s side and redirects the pet’s attention towards the person, improving the ability to actually enjoy a walk with the pet.
