When your pup is walking for exercise, collars can compress his trachea, making it hard for him to breathe. Instead, place him in a harness or head halter that will help you guide him without restricting his air. Non-retractable leashes are the best for keeping him by your side, but if he won't budge without some free rein, try a retractable leash that extends no farther than 12 feet.
