Your dog’s leash can become quite dirty with daily walks, runs in the rain, drops in puddles, and clumps of fur from your dog. It doesn’t take much to make your dog’s leash dirty. And a dirty leash is a stinky leash. Your dog’s leash is built with strength to take your dog from place to place. Washing it is important, but maintaining its strength and integrity is equally important, so placing it in a washing machine might weaken the material. So, just how do you clean your dog’s leash so it remains strong yet no longer smells like dog?
Your dog spends a lot of time getting dirty. He also spends much time getting clean. Though he might not appreciate not smelling like a stinky dog quite as much as you do, he might appreciate a clean smelling leash. His nose is strong and offensive odors might hit him quicker than they do you if he’s attached to them on his leash.
