Matchy Matchy Leashes to Collars and Harnesses?

Even if you're not down with coordinating with your furry friend, Thurman Murman's constantly rotating leash collection got me thinking – is it necessary to match the leash to the collar or harness? While Samson's sporting a set here, I know my pooch has many more harnesses than leashes . . . but he still has that basic black Flexi that just seems to go with everything. I make an effort to at least grab a leash that looks OK with the harness I slip on – how about you?

Viva has a matching houndstooth leash and collar, but I'm looking for a nice pink set. I want people to know she's a girl and stop calling her a boy.

I totally go with matching leash collar combo. The problem with harnesses is that they don't always come in matching colors or patterns so it's hard.

I started out buying matching collars and harnesses, but there are so many cute collars that do not have matching harnesses in meidium - large sizes. I recently purchased black and brown step-in harnesses. Now I can match almost any collar to my hearts content! She has leather leashes in pink, red, brown, and black, too. Yes, I freely admit my baby is spoiled rotten!

I try to match but if I can't find the matching leash quickly I'll grab whatever is available.

even though i voted that i grab whatever is closest ... last weekend i bought a darling black and deep purple agility lead with matching collar. my pup has at least two dozen collars but i couldn't resist - the leash was so cute ... it needed a matching collar.
