Welcome Kelarvely!

Overall, I like a regular flat leash for a dog that walks well (doesn't pull too much...remains under control during the walk)

The walk should be for the dog....the regular leash gives more freedom...so if they are well behaved, most dogs prefer a looser leash.

With bigger dogs, it adds control. I used to use them when I walked larger dogs on a regular basis. But once the dog walks well...it might not be needed...but it might be needed. This really is case by case.

Smaller dogs don't pull too much, so I've never put one on a smaller dog.
That said I'm an average-sized guy with average-sized strength.... and 'smaller' means different things to different people.

Maybe an older person could benefit if the had a harness on a feisty small dog.

Hope that helps a wee bit!
