Dog Collars, Leads & Harnesses
The moment you take your dog for a walk, you should be able to walk him on a leash. There are countless options for doing this. You can walk your dog using a dog collar, dog headcollar, dog harness, dog leash or retractable dog leash... we could go on and on!
It is important to choose a practical and animal-friendly method. In addition, your four-legged friend also has his own preference. Vetsend has a large selection of collars, leads and harnesses. In this category you will undoubtedly find an item that suits both you and your furry friend!
A dog collar only covers your dog's neck. This is pleasant for your dog, because you do not restrict him in his freedom of movement. There are different kinds of dog collars available. For example, you can opt for a classic collar, such as the Ruffwear Headwater Collar. leather. Also available are dog bandanas, reflective collars for dogs, head collars and anti-bark collars.
Dog collars are nice because they offer your dog a lot of freedom of movement. It becomes a disadvantage if your dog tends to pull on the leash. If your dog pulls on the leash, all that force will be absorbed by its neck, resulting in neck injuries. In this case, a dog collar is probably not the most ideal solution.
Harnesses for dogs, such as the Easywalk Harness or Puppia Harness, include your dog's chest. When your dog pulls on the leash, the force is distributed over the entire chest. There is a range of harnesses in different models, types and sizes. There is almost no harness that fits every dog. Which fit fits your dog best depends on different factors. Think of physique, but also the personal preference of your dog. In the article 'How to determine the right size for my pet?' we give tips on how to best measure your dog. This article can be found on our Veterinary Tips and Advice page, accessible on the bottom right of our homepage.
Did you make a choice between a dog collar and dog harness? Then it is now time to find a proper dog leash for your furry friend. How does your dog behave on a leash? How big is your dog? Are you going for a long or short leash? These are all things you should take into account when selecting the perfect leash for your dog. Fortunately, you're at the right place.

Classic dog leash
The classic dog leash is simple but practical and available in different lengths and materials. Do you live in a city? Then it would be better to order a shorter dog leash. Do you have more space and more freedom? Then a longer leash could be the solution. For example, EzyDog Vario 4 Lead is a simple but functional belt that is adjustable in length.
Retractable dog leash

Dog slip leads
A slip lead for your dog is both a dog leash and dog collar in one. This makes it one of the quickest and simplest ways to lead your dog. This line has two loops, one for your hand and one for around your dog's neck. Please note that the line has a so-called safety stop! This way you can prevent that the collar-loop becomes too small or rather too large for your dog. This line is perfectly suited if your dog is allowed to run around freely. A high quality dog lip lead made of durable polypropylene and nylon is the Rebel Petz Training Leash.
