how old is your dog? i cant speak for anyone else but when we first got our pup she really did not walk very well with the collar and leash. once we put a harness on her she seemed to be more willing to move with the leash. she seemed a little more responsive when you would tug on it. with the collar she would just sit back on her but.

our pup is now a bit over 4 months and we use a collar for 80% of her walks (just so she will get use to it).

as for leather or nylon i think it all breaks down to personal preferance and price. once again depending on how old your dog is you may have to go through a few collars and harness's due to their growth. if your dog is full grown this is something that you will not have to worry about.

What are you wanting it for?
Around the house a collar. Harnesses often are not monitored and cause rashes.
For walking a collar. Harnesses encourage pulling and a collar helps enforce proper walking habits.
I only use harnesses for weight pulling and weight pull training.

As for material depends on what you like and what you do. If you often go swimming I don't recommend leather.

well !...... i am a leather only kinda guy when it comes to collars for my dogs they both get very aggitated neck lines with nylon , i was just kinda curious as to what the majority uses and if there would be any reasons as to why or why not.
here is my dilemma my female rosie is 40 lbs last time i hooked a harness on her it was like holding on to a nitro powerd freight train ( it was 2 yrs ago), my male sunny is 60 lbs and 7 months old they both walk well on a collar but i'm sick of the tangled leashes when they start playin around or doin circles around each other while sniffin out the best poo spot,i was thinkin it may be easier to harness them both and use a dual lead leash or get a coupler and keep my current lead, i know i'll have to put in time gettin them to walk pretty much in unison the only other major issuse i forsee is the size difference once sunny is full grown

I do not recommend using a coupler for our breed of choice. You have no control over what happens if one of them decides to smart off and then you have two dogs teathered at the necks (basically) possibly acting at each other or what has peaked their interest.

For collars I would suggest nylon for every day use as it is always a VERY good idea to keep collars on your dogs AT ALL TIMES. This simply gives you the ability to take control of your dog for training, response, correction, or control.

We keep our dogs in Leather collars when we go out in public because they just look cleaner (when maintained), sleeker, and gives a higher class impression to the public.

Just my two cents!

good point ! one day they might just decide to have a serious go at each other or something else and being linked together would make it that much harder to seperate them so scratch that idea, i think i'll just harness them and use individual leads

As a dog trainer and someone who works dogs in sports all I use for obedience is a collar and leather leashes. Leather will not rip out of your hand and give you rope burn, nylon will. It is also more comfortable if you dog pulls. A collar give you control over the dogs head, have control of the head have control of the dog. Now if you are doing hand walking and want your dog to pull I can see a well fitting padded harness would work great.

As a little female I use nylon leashes for for walking , protection training and obedience . My hands are very small so leather leashes are too bulky for me to handle. I have also gotten a nasty burn/cut from the side of a leather leash. We keep nylon buckle collars on our dogs at all times. Never use the collars with plastic "click" buckles. I found out the hard way. One of our dogs who was fairly small at the time made a break for it, I grabbed the collar , the buckle snapped and I was left holding the collar and no dog.Belive it or not Walmart has " bully collars" - they are thick nylon and have a metal buckle and are only $6-7. All of ours have them and they last a long time. Some are 2 years old and still in good nick. Also they are machine washable - a VERY important fact !!!
