Why do dog trainers hate retractable leashes?

They’re so annoying and people do not like them.

When people buy retractable leashes for their dog, that’s what they go to, dog and owner. They want that cute pet that they love at their home, but also a companion that can do any type of task. If you just bought something and have to use the leash often, it’s really frustrating to see dogs getting tired or getting into bad habits because they don’t have the proper technique to get themselves off the leash. If you’ve ever worn a retractable leash, you know exactly what I mean.

Dogs who are used to retractable leashes have to work a lot to be comfortable. The longer they do the more tired they can get and they get worse if they are lazy. If a dog was going to have an easier leash, they could easily become that lazy. It’s a really frustrating scenario.

Others have a really quiet, shy nature. That’s all fine and valid. I have a dog who’s always in a pack and when I bring her to a meeting or her birthday party, she’s the first to go in that particular class. That’s OK. She’s used to that so I don’t need to be pushing her into it. I don’t need to be doing that for a lot of people when I bring my dog to a meeting. I would probably find her more uncomfortable, although I probably wouldn’t tell her because that’s a bit silly.
