Did you know? There are increasing reports from dog owners and doctors of injuries caused from dog leads and collars. These include lacerations, friction burns, ligament injuries and even fractures, particularly of the hand and wrist. The British Society for Surgery of the Hand stated that in Cornwall there were 30 serious hand injuries caused by dog leads last year alone.
With over 8 million dog owners in the UK, and a growing number of borrowers too, it’s important we are more aware of how to avoid injury and to ensure we’re holding our furry friends correctly.
If you ever have any concerns about how you hold your dog lead why not contact a local dog trainer or even your local vet.
