Selkie is a very strong-willed wee spaniel. She is also very clever and has excelled at all kinds of training. With one notable exception. She (and HDB!) simply cannot get “walking nicely on the lead” no matter how hard we try. And we’ve tried, believe me, we’ve tried………

…..Of the different products HDB likes the all-in-one Gencon lead with clip to collar as this means you have everything you need in one hand when you need it. You also have an “extra” safety clip on the collar which adds another layer of security when walking in town/near traffic. The Gencon was also a life-saver when I hurt my shoulder and still needed to be able to walk Selkie. I also like the fact that the collar responds quickly to the dog – so if Selkie is pulling hard, it gets tighter, but as soon as she stops, it loosens, so she has a say in things. I know that headcollars aren’t for every dog, but if you are going to try one we have found the Gencon to be an extremely useful, hardwearing piece of equipment.
