A standard 4-ft or 6-ft leash is perfect for you! Choose from either leather, nylon or waterproof in many stylish colors. You and your pup don’t need the extras .. you are content together when it comes to walks and they are a breeze! The hardest part about owning your pup is saying thank you to all the passersby when they mention how cute your dog and their dogIDs gear is 😉  

Mostly B’s 

The traffic lead will be perfect for your pup! Choose from either 2-ft or 3-ft depending on your dog’s size and how far you want your pup to be able to roam. You and your dog enjoy walks around the neighborhood or the occasional walk downtown or to the local farmer’s market. This leash will keep your pup with you in case she gets a little too friendly with a good sniff or another cute dog! 

Mostly C’s

You and your happy-go-lucky dog have a couple options! For walks around the block, we recommend the Waterproof Slip Leash to help your pup with their leash manners and adding some extra control when you walk by distractions. But, your dog also looooveesss to adventure, so adding in the Waterproof Long Line will let your dog get a little extra play romps in without the risk of losing them. 

Mostly D’s

The Jaeger Lead is the leash for you! Your friendly, well-behaved dog enjoys a walk here and there, but is always up for more adventure if the opportunity presents itself! The versatile jaeger lead will do just that! For walks around the block, you can use it as a regular leash, then switch it to a crossbody leash for a walk around your dog friendly store. It also serves as a slip leash if you need extra control or want to tie your dog up to your park bench for a picnic.
