Best Leashes For Your Pomsky
A Pomsky is adorable! But this designer mix of Husky and Pomeranian has the best of both its parents, which means you’ll need to make sure you have a reliable leash on hand. Here are our Best leashes for your Pomsky.
What dog doesn’t love to walk? Few we know, and Pomskies are no exception. A designer cross of a Pomeranian daddy and a Husky Mama, these babies are a relatively new breed that shows the best qualities of both its ancestral lines. This means walks (and lots of them!) are probably in your future, so be sure you’ve got a great leash!
1. Editor’s Pick: Mighty Paw Training Leash
Pomskies are perfectly playful, but they have a bit of the stubborn diva in them–one of the many reasons people love this new breed. But you’ll want to be sure you have a good listener because huskies are known to wander, and this training leash from Mighty Paw will have them there in no time! Made in the USA by a family-owned business in Rochester, this will keep your Pomsky safe and happy for visiting as well.
2. Runner Up: PetSafe Nylon Dog Leash
Sometimes, simple is better. If you don’t need any bells and whistles and just want a lightweight yet durable dog leash for your Pomsky, this trusty nylon flat leash will be perfect. PetSafe Nylon Dog Leash is made from heavy-duty, fade-resistant, tough nylon that will stand up the wear and tear of regular use. The 360 swivel clasp is made from nickel-plated zinc alloy to ensure durability and it’s easy to use, as well, as it attaches to a harness or a collar in seconds- and stays firmly in place. Pomskies can vary in size, but that won’t be a problem if you opt for this versatile leash: it comes in 6 vibrant colors and 5 different lengths and widths. Every pooch can find a match with ease!
3. Best Bungee: TinyPaw Premium Absorbing Bungee Dog Leash
Tiny Paw’s Bungee Leash uses a premium nylon and top of the line elastic banding that creates a bungee that gives your dogs more space to explore and be free while the bungees adsorbs and softens the pull that protects your dog from any choking or abrupt pulling. The premium nylon belt is threaded with highly reflective threads so you can be comfortable walking at night knowing that both you and your dog have real visibility. You may instinctively know that your Pomsky is more of a Husky than a Pom by the fact that they are more of a wanderer than a lounger. So this is a great choice for the Husky side of your Pomsky. The handle is made from a comfortable foam that won’t hurt your hand if you dog sudden lurches and pulls. The handle design will reduce the pressure on your hand and protect your wrist. Don’t forget that both of you need to be comfortable in order to have a truly productive walk.
4. Best Double-Handed: Max and Neo Double-handed Leash
We love this leash for those who have Pomskies in the city (they make great apartment dogs if you can get them the exercise they love on walks!), and we love it more because every purchase means a donation of a leash to a dog in need! This double handed-leash is great for traffic areas or obedience training so you can let your dog have some freedom or keep near as you need. It’s easy-to-care-for nylon, and is guaranteed for life if you have a chewer!

10. Best Leather: Highland Farms Select Premier
Some things are just timeless- it’s hard to resist the elegance and the practicality of a classic leather dog leash. If you want your Pomsky to strut their stuff at the end of a stylish and functional leash, you can’t go wrong with the Highland Farms Select Premier’s design. This practical leash is 6ft long and half an inch wide, with a braided detail on the end of the leash. It is made from genuine full grain leather in brown color so even though it is fairly lightweight, it is exceptionally strong and durable- in fact, it can withstand 500Lb of pull force. The attractive hardware (360 swivel clasp) is made from copper alloy casting so it won’t rust and won’t weigh down the leash, either.
How to leash train a puppy?
Puppies can be a handful, particularly Pomskies which can be stubborn and wilful, but leash training them can be much less difficult when you know which methods to rely on. The best way to approach leash training a puppy is to use positive reinforcement technique which involves rewarding and praising a dog for a job well done to let them know what type of behavior is desirable. When leash training a puppy, first introduce them to the leash and harness or collars they will be wearing- let them sniff them (but not chew or play with them), and let them wear them a bit around the house before going out. Next, you’ll want to arm yourself with treats and dole them out when they go out and for every little milestone- such as slowing down when told, letting you put the leash on, etc.
