The right equipment is essential when training your dog, and the tow and training lines are very important. There are several types of lines available, each with their own features and benefits. In this blog we will talk about the different lengths and materials of dog towing and training leashes, and the benefits of Biothane as a material.
Lengths of tow and training lines
The length of the tow and training leash you choose will depend on the purpose of the training and the size of your dog. A 1.5 to 2 meter line is recommended for most workouts. This is long enough to give your dog some room to move, but short enough to keep him under control. A shorter or longer leash may be required for specific training purposes.
For example, a longer leash can be useful when training remote commands, such as recalling your dog. This gives him the freedom to run and play, while still allowing you to control his movements. A shorter leash can be useful when training behaviors that your dog needs to learn, such as sitting, lying down and standing.
Materials of towing and training lines
A variety of materials are available for tow and training lines, including nylon, leather, and Biothane. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages, but in this blog we want to talk specifically about Biothane, which we also use from GULA for our trolling lines .
Biothane is a sturdy, waterproof and durable material made of a layer of nylon with a polyurethane coating on top. It has the look of leather, but is much easier to maintain and more durable. Biothane is available in different colors and retains its color well, so it always looks like new.
Benefits of Biothane
Biothane has a number of advantages over other materials used for towing and training lines. Below we have listed the most important advantages.
Water resistant: Biothane is waterproof and will not weaken or rot if it gets wet. This makes it ideal for use when training on the beach, in the forest or in other wet environments.
Durable: Biothane is very strong and can take a beating. It is resistant to scratches, tears and abrasion, making it a good choice for dogs that spend a lot of time outdoors and often come into contact with rough surfaces.
Easy to maintain: Biothane is easy to clean and maintain. It can be easily wiped with a damp cloth and dries quickly.
Lightweight: Biothane is lighter than leather and nylon, making it easy to carry for both dog and owner.
Biothane is also a safe choice for dogs because it won't break or tear easily. For example, if the leash gets caught on a tree or bush, Biothane won't tear and the dog won't get loose. This makes it a reliable material for both training and everyday use.
Biothane leads are suitable for a variety of training purposes, including obedience training, hunting training, tracking and agility. The material is durable enough to withstand the toughest workouts and water-resistant enough to use in wet environments.
Biothane lines are also a good choice for everyday use. They are easy to clean and maintain, which is especially useful if your dog likes to roll in the mud or play outside a lot. The leashes are available in different lengths and colours, so you can choose a leash that suits your training or daily needs.
Choosing the right tow and training leash for your dog is important for keeping him safe and under control during training and daily use. Biothane is a material that is sturdy, waterproof, durable, easy to maintain and safe for dogs. It is suitable for different training purposes and everyday use, and is available in different lengths and colours. By investing in a Biothane line like that of GULA , you are investing in the safety and comfort of your dog during training and daily use.
