Adopted a Tea Cup Pom that's 6. Which is better. Retractable or regular leash
The best leash to go for is the regular or normal type as they last longer and does not malfunction as the retractable ones. Furthermore, retractable leashes are known to cause injury, burns and even cuts.
I also think the regular leashes are better. To remain the " alpha dog/ pack leader" you need to walk slightly ahead of your dog or the dog assumes it is in charge.
