Getting the right kind of lead for a big dog can be very important.  When we are out with Ozzie in new places, or on the school playground – or anywhere where we want to be sure of full control, we use a lead and headset from Dogmatic.  This company originally developed this style of lead specifically for Italian Spinone, but they have become popular with many other breeds of dog. They give full control, but Ozzie stays comfortable, is able to eat, drink and pant (and dribble, and slobber etc.) as normal with it on.  Make sure you get the right size – the company will help ensure you do.
