I have notice where I live most dog owners that use retractable leashes have a hard controlling their dogs and the dogs do not seen to be trained at all. People seen to think if they use a retractable leash the dog needs no training in my city. It's this the same where you live? I think most dogs are taking their owners for a walk in my city.
