Sat: 8AM – 5PM
At Wilderness Animal Hospital we are dedicated to the safety and well-being of your pet. To keep all of our patients safe and decrease the stress in our facility, we request you do not bring in your pet on a retractable leash. Retractable leashes are not appropriate in the close quarters of our reception area. We will happily exchange your retractable leash for one of our standard leashes for use during your visit. If you want, you can even take it home.
If you use a retractable leash regularly with your dog, please consider the following:
Long leash = less control
Long leash = more momentum = injury to you or your dog
The thin cord can break
Long leashes do not encourage good training
The leash handles are bulky
