Your pup's leash is one of their most essential accessories. It is literally the complement that allows them to connect to the outside world and keeps them safe while they explore it. An excellent quality leash can give your dog the freedom to navigate the outside world, all the while ensuring that they are protected and out of harm’s way. Premium leashes should be comfortable for both dogs and their parents, keeping everyone happy as you and your pooch revel in exploration and embark on family adventures.


When it comes to finding the perfect dog leash, consider these factors.

  1. Consider the breed and their temperament: One of the first things that you need to consider when shopping for a dog leash is the size and temperament of your pup. If you have a small 2-kilogram Teacup Yorkie, it will definitely need a different type of leash than a strong-willed Great Dane weighing in at 40 kilograms. While most small and medium breeds can get away with standard leads, certain breeds will need more comprehensive designs specifically tailored for dogs who pull or who need some extra guidance while walking. If your dog is struggling to walk correctly and needs some basic obedience support, it's always a good idea to consult a certified trainer. They will offer professional knowledge and positive reinforcement-based tools, and might even recommend a remedial leash that can aid the process.
  1. Think about the quality and materials: Next, you need to consider the quality factor. Unless your dog has perfect recall, the leash is one of the most imperative features that will guard their safety. Great quality leads keep your dog close by and ensure that they don't get into trouble while outside the protection of your home. This is why you need a durable leash that won't erode, fray, or break. Opt for high-quality leashes like the Valgray models. They are made from sports-grade PVC-coated nylon, ensuring enhanced robustness on every walk. Our models are also latex-free, tear-resistant, and odour-proof, adding to their overall quality and ultimate client satisfaction.
  1. Are they weather resistant? Another important contemplation is whether or not the leash is able to resist harsh elements. If you live in an area prone to strong winds, rain, intense sun, or any other extreme weather condition, you want to ensure that your leash can weather the so-called storm. This enhances its lifespan and ensures that leads remain safe and secure at all times. Moreover, when you invest in higher quality products, you won't have to keep replacing them.
  1. Decide on the style: Finally, you need to consider the style of the leash. When it comes to dog leads, there truly are options galore, and your chosen design will depend largely on the breed and personal training initiatives. At Valgray, our leads are modelled on the standard leash design. They're 140 cm in length and come in an array of colours, including lilac, pistachio, turquoise, and bone. We also sell collar and leash sets for those fashion-forward pups who want to break away from the pack and showcase newfound sophistication and style.

Valgray is one of the few brands that caters for all dog sizes. From our extra-small collars for the truly tiny pooch to the extra-large collars for giant breeds, we go the extra mile to make sure your fur-babies can put their best paw forward. 

It’s important to measure your pup’s neck to make sure your new collar will fit comfortably. Remember to include some space around the neck for your pooch’s safety and comfort. As a rule of thumb, you should be able to fit two or three fingers between the neck and collar. 

Once you have your doggo’s measurements, check our sizing guide below for the best collar size.


No problem! You can use a variety of household items to safely measure your dog’s neck. See our guide here.

We try our best to cater to every breed, but some doggos might need a little extra at-home customisation to achieve the perfect fit. Making adjustments to our soft, PVC-coated nylon straps at home is easy. Simply use a standard leather punching tool to add additional holes, or use a utility knife to trim the length of your collar.
