CHAIN LEASH W LATIGO HANDLE MEDIUM 4 FT This 4-foot Medium Weight chain lead has welded links and hardware and a riveted brown leather handle . Chain leads are a good deterrent for chewing dogs. In a pinch, these leads convert to a temporary tie-out by unsnapping the lead, wrapping it around a secure object, slipping the snap through the handle and connecting the snap to the dog's collar!

Management tool: Swap your fabric leash for a chain leash. Chain leashes are not nearly as fun to chew on and can’t be grabbed or tugged as easily as a fabric leash. If your dog is chewing the leash simply because he wants something in his mouth, give him something he can carry, like a stuffed toy or ball, to serve as a type of pacifier during walks.

Growing up in the ’80s, dog chain leashes were extremely popular. I’m not sure if it was due to function, but I think it was mostly due to style, as everything had a metallic sheen back then. 🙂 Chain dog leashes are still available 30 years later, and they can be useful in certain situations, but they have downsides as well.Not only are dog chain leashes heavy, but they hurt too. For smaller dogs and puppies, look for thin and lightweight chain leash options. Remember, chain leashes will hurt your hands. They will definitely pull a layer of skin off when you’re grabbing the chain portion to stop a dog from pulling.Some dogs get excited and pull on their leashes, which can quickly damage even the most durable leash material. One time, when working with a fearful dog that became frustrated around triggers–he lived in an apartment complex, so triggers were everywhere–the dog grabbed his leash and chewed through it. Understand, this was a huge . He could sever a leash in two pieces with few purposeful chomps. It was frightening. We did have tremendous success changing his behavior though, and his pet owner used a chain-and-cotton dog leash until she learned how to quickly identify and reward different dog behavior.For some reason, some pet owners feel chain dog leashes are sturdier than leather or nylon options, but I would disagree. I have a large dog, and a high quality 1-inch wide nylon leash works just fine. If your large dog pulls against his chain leash during walks, those chain links can crumble apart over time.
