Leashes and Collars for your French Bulldog
One consideration of course is aesthetics. While it’s far less important than your dog’s health, you do of course want them to look as good as possible. Why not choose a collar that’s going to enhance their cute factor?
In that case, you will probably consider looking at a studded or even a spiked collar. These are particularly popular among bulldogs and are featured in many cartoons and the like. It’s the prototypical bulldog look!
But now onto comfort. What is a comfortable collar/leash for a bulldog? The most comfortable option as always is to look for a full-body dog harness. These harnesses will wrap around your pup at the front – crossing over their chests and their torsos. Because the leash isn’t just around their neck, this means they are less likely to restrict their own breathing by pulling against you, or by running at speed.
That said, collars as genuine leather dog collars are more suitable for smaller dogs such as French bulldogs as they don’t run as fast or generate as much power. This also means that a French bulldog is more suitable for a retractable leash like slip lead dog leash. These leads will extend as your dog runs away and will shorten as they get closer. That in turn means that there is no slack, which in turn means it’s always much easier to guide your dog, even as they are running around.
Another tip is to consider using training collars like prong training collar when your dog is younger, in order to better teach them how to walk. You can then either transition to a harness when they are older if they have learned how to walk properly or you can use a retractable lead if they’re still prone to running around!
