You want to be careful of the type of leash used on the dog you walk. Everyone has their preference leash vs harness but some dogs need a specific type because of their behavior or in this case breed. Sophie the greyhound has a very small head and if you pull on the leash to get her to move the collar comes right off. Fortunately Sophie was very chill and just stood their looking at me. If that was not the reaction I would have suggested to the owners they get a harness or a gentle lead. You never know if a dog will bolt if it sees a squirrel or something else makes it curious. If you feel the leash/harness being used is not appropriate or risky don't be afraid to say something to the owner. They may appreciate your expertise.
