We've had our timid rescue dog since September. Since we got her, she's become very fearful of the leash and we're unable to get her on it and out the door without a lot of struggle. How do we help her get more comfortable with this? [more inside]
Our 10 month old pup, Kesugi, is still struggling with loose leash walking. We were doing reasonably well with the combination of a Gentle Leader and very frequent high-value treats, but then real winter hit. Now what do we do? [more inside]
Help me train my dog not to bark at other dogs while we’re walking. [more inside]
My 3 month old shelter puppy seriously dislikes everything to do with his leash. This makes getting him out of the house....frustrating, and carrying him out the door will be ridiculous when he is 70 pounds. What am I doing wrong/not trying? [more inside]
I have a dog leash with a snap hook (it appears to be called) on one end and something else on the other end. [more inside]
Neighbor problem. My neighbor lets unleashed dogs run around. [more inside]
My dog is an incredibly vocal dog, in play. He growls like he crazy with humans playing tuggy or rough-housing, with other dogs he meets who he wants to play with or is playing with. It all sounds so fierce but it's not, he's just being playful (he's nearly 3). How do I deal with this on walks, when other dogs don't always figure out the playful part straight away, and other owners who basically call me a liar when I assure them he's friendly? [more inside]

Had an idea for a new design of dog leash and want to make and hopefully sell it. I've had a heck of a time finding a source for all the little locking/clasping components found on your typical leash. How do I find them? [more inside]
Are multi-dog leashes easier than separate leashes? Please give me your thoughts on, and/or recommendations for, multi-dog leashes. [personal specs, and probably too much information, inside] [more inside]
What is the best type of leash/collar/harness to control a large, unruly Pomeranian that likes to lunge and bark at people during walks?
WalkingDogFilter: Any experiences with three-dog leashes/couplers? I've seen several options online, but I'm looking for personal recommendations. Dogs are all about 15-20 pounds. Bonus for reducing tangling and/or pulling. Thanks!!!
Dog Leash Longer than 6 feet? Where can I find a nylon dog leash longer than the industry standard 6 ft (not a retractable type)? Ideally I'd like 8 ft, or possibly 9. Looking for online store recommendations.
We got a 12 week old lab that loves to go for a walk, but she just pulls on her leash ( has a standard nylon collar ) and it sounds like is choking her. How have you personally trained your dog? What can I do to make her walk by my side without strangling her all the time. Professional training is an option but this seems her only setback.... Thanks!
