We can all agree that maintaining control over your dog’s behavior is important—and leashes help us keep them close and in check. While regular leashes are best for teaching boundaries to puppies, retractable leashes—along with commands and rules—may be better suited for adult dogs with well-established manners. Like all canine accessories, one size doesn’t fit all. The best retractable leash for large dogs will be different than the best retractable leash for small dogs, and dogs that pull will benefit from an even stronger model. Overall, we think the best retractable leash is the Flexi Neon Reflective Retractable Dog Leash ($17). If you’re on a budget, have two dogs to walk or want a stylish retractable leash, we got you covered, too.
