Default what lead and collar?

In need of a new lead and collar as the lead handle has warn out and he's out growing his collar.

Seeing as kai is a puller ive opted for the clip on collar with padding inside.

Would a nylon collar with padding inside (belt buckle style) be okay?

or should i look for a harness with the d clip at the front?

On to the lead

currently ive been using a 3ft chain link lead with a padded handle grip.

Would a nylon lead be strong enough to hold his weight or should i stick with the chain link?

Theres no many different types to chose from when every i go i always get lost in thought

lead and collar in thought are
Wainwright's Chocolate Nylon Dog Collar | Pets at Home

Wainwright's Olive Nylon Dog Lead | Pets at Home

current lead and collar

Red Nylon Chain Lead by Pets at Home | Pets at Home

3 Peaks Black Xtreem Trek Dog Collar | Pets at Home

Going to go get one as soon as i have my mind set on one (based on who ever gives me their opinon)

thanks x

I use both leather collars and leashes, easy to clean and long lasting

No, a good leather is very strong and soft.

If your dog is a puller then I wouldn't be using just a flat collar, either a halti head halter, easy walk harness, or a prong if your dog is old enough. That coupled with training will help

I just bought an easy walk harness on amazon, but it won't be here until next week.

Kylie doesn't pull nearly as much as she used to, but it does still happen. It isn't that much of a problem right now when I am walking her, but if she still does it when she is bigger and one of my girls is walking her, that could be a problem. My golden actually managed to break my middle dd's arm when she was 10yo by pulling so hard that she yanked her off her feet. My girls are all bigger now, but I don't want anything like that to happen again.

I am working on teaching her not to pull and she is definitely much better about it than she was, especially with me. She doesn't respond to my girls as well as she does to me though and sometimes they will walk her instead of me.
