Leash went up in price

Leash is in Large only, which is 1/4" wider than the Small. Both are 6'.

Carhartt Hunter Orange/Brushed Nickel Dog Collar is Medium, so unless your dog's neck is over 18" in circumference, you can get the Large here: https://www.amazon.com.au/Carhartt-Tradesman-Collar-Hunter-O… I don't know why it's a different listing and it's a tiny bit cheaper from Amazon US.

So as far as I can tell, the Medium collar and Large leash are 1" wide. And yes, orange is the best colour.

    If you and your dog need something so heavy duty i recommend a chest harness instead of a leash for safety and comfort

    Over my many years of dog ownership ive stopped using collars except when absolutely necessary for identification

    • If they don't pull on it, then what's the problem? I currently use a harness on my kelpie puppy, but my old border collie didn't even need a leash. Kelpie is currently at puppy school and we're doing loose lead walking.

      • Its physically uncomfortable to wear. Try wearing a big thick choker necklace for 24 hours.

        It creates a kind of anxiety.
        Look at this way: How secure would you feel walking around with a noose on your neck with someone holding the other end, even if you trusted them?

        It can go very wrong in an accident. Not likely but possible. I dont take the chance anymore.

        If they need to pull in an emergency, it makes it difficult painful and dangerous.

        • Any harness recommendations? The ones I've tried in the past weren't great

            @chiprillis: They are a pita, nothing wrong with collar and lead, have been waking dogs 4-6ks a day for 15 years with no issues.

            • @Surfsalot: Yeah, did dogs suddenly, and collectively, decide "no more collars!" after centuries of domestication?

          I dunno, that's a bit intense. I need a collar with tag because of local laws (also my contact info), same with the leash, except at certain parks and reserves. I don't believe my previous or currrent dog suffers anxiety wearing a collar, but I'll ask the trainer in a couple hours at puppy school. In fact, when I put my border collie down, I was told to keep the collar on because that's what they're used to and makes them feel more comfortable.

          My border collie never pulled, nothing really bothered her, never touched the road unless told to cross, ignored barking dogs etc, but if I can't train my rescue Kelpie to do the same, I'll get a harness (which he is currently on). Problem solved.

          Asked the trainer and, I quote, "that's probably the dumbest thing I've ever heard". So unless you're a vet, experienced dog trainer, or a certified dog therapist, I'm going to call BS. Sure, all dogs are different, but I would like to think I'll have enough awarenss to notice if my dog is anxious.

          The collar I linked is 59g. His current collar is 56g with a metal tag. His harness is 92g. Leash is 105g.

          I bought these to for him when he's fully grown. I think he'll be fine.

            @rosebank: Is the rspca good enough? This mentions at least some of the things i said

            Dogs left outdoors who try to escape can die from strangulation if their collars become caught on something, such as on a fence post.
            Loose collars can trap a dog’s limbs, teeth or tongue, which may cause serious injury. Tight collars, on the other hand, can dig into your dog’s skin, causing irritation, fur loss and even infection. It is also a good idea to remove collars at night to allow the skin to breathe.
            Another way collars can harm your dog, even if correctly fitted, is by causing neck injury if your dog pulls on the leash or is tugged along. The pressure of the collar on the neck due to pulling or tugging can cause injury (through ‘whiplash’ or nerve damage) to the thyroid gland, lymph nodes, trachea and oesophagus and can even worsen respiratory symptoms in brachycephalic (short-nosed) breeds or cause abnormal increases in eye pressure. A recent study using a simulated neck model showed that no collar type can prevent pressure injury in dogs who pull on the leash. This is one reason why ‘loose-leash walking’ with a front attaching harness is recommended.
            Training your dog to ‘loose-leash walk’ (which means your dog walks on the leash without pulling) is safest when using a front-attaching harness with a double-ended leash that attaches to the back and front.
            Front-attaching harnesses are safer than collars because when the dog does pull, any pressure is absorbed by their chest or back, rather than their neck, reducing the risk of injury and preventing coughing and choking. Unlike collars, they also prevent dogs from slipping out and escaping

              @bargain huntress: That rspca article linked to this article which also mentions some of the things i said https://www.petmd.com/dog/care/5-ways-collars-can-harm-your-…

              “If you have a really stiff collar on a dog, it would be like if we were wearing some piece of jewelry that was really tight,” she says. “It’s going to impede their mobility and they’re not going to be a happy camper.”
              “If the dog sits down or rolls over, their skin and body fat is redistributed,” Hodges says. “A collar that sits perfectly when it’s standing up may be too tight when the dog reclines.”
              Repeated stress on the neck can even lead to long-term medical issues—including damaging the thyroid glands and tissues around the neck area and salivary glands, she says. A chest harness can be a safer alternative to neck collars that put a lot of strain on a dog’s neck, she adds.
              She also recommends letting your dog sleep at night without a collar to give your pet’s skin a chance to air out.
              For example, if a pet is “scratching its ear and the collar is loose, their back leg or their front leg could get stuck inside the collar, looped through,” Hodges says. “It can lead to a limb breaking.” She has also seen dogs get their teeth or tongue stuck in a too-loose collar while grooming themselves, which can lead to broken teeth and other mouth injuries.
              To avoid both physical injury and strangulation, Pacy recommends breakaway-style collars, which are designed to snap apart when pressure is applied to the buckle. He has seen breakaway collars prevent many potentially fatal injuries, both among his clients and his own dogs.
              “A dog … can jump up and snag their collar on a fence post or a window latch,” which can lead to suffocation, says Dr. John Pacy, owner of Healthy Pets House Calls, a mobile veterinary service in Palm Beach County, Florida. Hanging tags can also get caught on crates and other objects and cause choking, he says.
              Even a well-fitting collar can be dangerous if used to tie up a dog in the backyard, says Dr. Barbara Hodges, a veterinary advisor with the Humane Society Veterinary Medical Association. She says she has heard of dogs who tried to jump fences while tied on a long leash and ended up hanging themselves with their collar.

              @bargain huntress: Yes, I'm I'm currently training my kelpie to loose leash walk on a front attached harness. Which still connects to his collar as recommended by my trainer. So once he's fully trained and grown, I think we'll be okay. But thank you for your concern, and info from the RSPCA. My border collie never pulled, and I hope I can train my kelpie to do the same.

              Edit: I was on mobile and realised I replied to the additional info about collars. My border collar wore a collar maybe 80% of the time. Sometimes I take it off and forget to put it back on for weeks and she'd be 100% free range. I also take my Kelpie's collar off occasionally, but it's staying on right now becuase he's a rescue street dog, and has a habit of bolting out the front door for a fun run when I'm not paying attention. So I need the collar, with the council tag, and an engraved tag with his name and my number, in case he gets lost.

              It's just a collar mate, most dogs have them, and I only see the occasional harness at the park or on the street. So again, thank you for for the info and everything, but it's like I'm having to defend my purchase of a plain nylon collar, and that I'm an animal abuser or something. It's just a collar.

    Tradesmen leash?

    You mean like the ones I've seen people use to attach their 25+kg "best mates" onto the back of their flat-tray utes?

    I mean, atleast they won't fly off the back, but why do people let their puppers go to the gallows and back?

      Ngl, I just like Carhartt shit so I can cosplay as a farmer. And the drip.

      I don't own a ute, but would never put any animal in the back tray. Some dudes don't even secure the dog.

        Sometimes it's better that way.. Atleast the dog just falls out in the carpark/driveway on exit. Worst thing I saw was a ute with no tray walls, doing handbrakes getting out of a shop carpark, with a solid german shepherd on the back. Pupper couldn't get good footing on the metal, didn't have the ute walls to lean on. He was literally just being dragged by the neck for whoknowshowlong until he stopped driving.. Mind you this was probably 15 years ago. I assume he'd be followed by members of the public nowadays for doing that dumb sh*t.

        Also, the brand is cool and looks quality anyway. Even as heavy as that metal looks, I'm sure an overweight rottie can handle it.. 😅

  • The leash is showing as $46.97

    • looks like they upped the price
