Alcott’s reflectivity and wide, flat ribbon structure makes it a great all-around leash, whether you consistently keep it locked or safely use the retractable functionality. And this month, they’re 15% off at Kriser’s. Pick up these great options for your dark winter walks.
And as you pick up a retractable leash, here are Brad’s tips for safe and comfortable use of them.
- Use a retractable leash to allow your pet to run a little more free when there’s an open space away from the road, but you still want him or her tethered to you. It’s is a great way to keep them close, but not too close!
- Always keep it locked near streets or near animals your furbaby isn’t familiar with. Your reaction time will be far longer than your dog’s—don’t test it. By the time you lock it, he or she could have run!
- When it’s unlocked, make sure you’re not distracted by a text message or a friend nearby. That will only lengthen your response time.
