Leash
Even if your dog is a recall superstar and impeccably behaved off-leash, there will still be times when you need a leash for safety or out of respect for other hikers. Except for designated off-leash areas, many parks require dogs to be leashed on the trails anyway.
Two Handle Leash
Two Handle Leash

This leash is ideal for dogs that tend to pull. Two neoprene handles enable you to keep hold of your dog (one is at the end of the leash for more freedom, while the second is closer to the clasp to maintain control). The nylon webbing and metal fixtures are strong and stand up to frequent use.

This leash is designed with medium and large dogs in mind. It comes in four different colors.
