All dog owners know this scenario: you’re out for a walk with your new puppy when suddenly a rabbit darts out from under a bush. Your dog lunges toward the creature, but your grip on the leash yanks him back before he can get too far. To a still developing and sensitive neck, that abrupt pull can certainly cause physical pain for your puppy.
All Sleepy Cotton leashes are made out of a naturally elastic yet very strong cotton material. They are designed to have just enough give to prevent the chance of neck injury from occurring. The pressure on your dog’s neck when they begin to pull or need to be moved out of a dangerous situation is much less than when using a nylon or leather leash.
Regardless of what kind of pup you have at home - big, small, medium, miniature - a stiff leash is not the best option for daily walks. Young pups especially benefit from a Sleepy Cotton leash; their necks aren’t fully developed yet and can be easily damaged. Easing some of that tension is key to keeping your dog safe and healthy on walks.
