Dog leads and collars, which one suits your dog

Choosing the right Tool

When you trawl through the internet or walk through a pet shop you will be confronted with a scary amount of different dog leads and collars. Choosing the right one for your dog can unfortunately be an expensive hit or miss game.

Many of you will know how this feels and will have a draw or cupboard full of leads, collars, harnesses ect that you have brought. Each one just didn’t work the way you where expecting them to or promised by the manufacture.

Many dog leads and collars just don’t work unless you put the training in from a very early stage and more importantly creating a positive to the lead.

The Modern Labrador

The history of the faithfull Labrador Retriever

The modern Labrador’s ancestors originated on the island of Newfoundland, now part of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
The founding breed of the Labrador was the St Johns Water Dog, a breed that emerged through ad-hoc breedings by early settlers of the island in the 16th century. The forebears of the St. John’s Dog are not known, but were likely a random-bred mix of English, Irish, and Portuguese working breeds. The Newfoundland (known then as the Greater Newfoundland) is likely a result of the St. John’s Dog breeding with mastiffs brought to the island by the generations of Portuguese fishermen who had been fishing offshore since the 16th century.READ MORE
