Tommy ate his today as I wasn't watching him so was going to buy another Trixie lead as it's been great

HOWEVER - found their website today and it seems that they market prong collars so off my shopping list and going to spend more money on Ezydog

Does this have to be a long training lead type one or would something like this be OK:

Got one of these for Ledger tbh tend to walk him on half length but the full length option is long enough to give him a bit of freedom

I have the ezydog vario 6 and I am extremely happy with it. I use the handsfree leash for jogging and the short leash for regular walking (and i have found that you don't really have to put the leash through the hole in the middle of the leash to do this) and the long leash for park walking and sniffing

looks like some good options there , the only thing I particularly like about the Trixie leads we have now is there is a big ring and a D ring on them and they are not stitched into position and have sliding adjustment on the lead so you can make a small handle/long lead or a bigger over the shoulder (again adjustable so for me as i am taller it's tighter under my armpit for more length whereas Jenny can have it a bit looser as she is shorter than me so it is very versatile

Going to try one of these , little bugger is chewing leads now if we stop and tether him for a while (at a bench for lunch or something) so not paying a fortune and if you recommend them then that's good enough for me Big Grin

im having the same lead chewing issue with Ledger but only when he is at agility he went through a nylon and a leather lead so has been on a chain (although he has figured that the handle is nylon) however the chain isn't practical so I picked up a cheap slip lead from P@H and blotted some tabasco sauce onto it 2 classes attended and no chewing (so far)

Hmmm is an extendible lead not practical for you? I know you can get them different lengths, different sizes and even different size hand grips and everything! I'm thinking about changing ebonys extendible lead to something like the posts above though; I usually just let her roam wherever I'm walking on a long lead as she's very well behaved, I am extremely visualant and I make sure she comes to be before going round corners and is trained to wait at roads so things like that are no problem. I've seen so many people using those leads! Whenever I walk her she tends to spend most of her time off lead (on fields) and I just wanted something a bit more practical since her extendable is pretty big to carry/hook on anywhere since it's a really long one so the actual handle is huge (It's kinda hard/uncomfortable for me to hold too). I wouldn't want to cut her freedom down when walking through woods and stuff because the new lead was shorter though? I'm in two minds really, I'd rather be in discomfort than shortening her roaming freedom so any help would be great Smile

I really don't like flexi leads as you don't have the control when you need it . If doggie is on a long line much easier to haul in than on a flexi .
Most times for us it is just off lead , used a long line lately a bit more with Tommy as he has been a little naughty so want top make sure he is back on track, but we do have some places where dogs have to be on lead. Also lately have had a couple of times whilst walking roadside (short lead ALWAYS) you get some person with their kid walking the dog on a flexi that thinks its perfectly sound to walk on a roadside with 20ft of flexi extended ready to walk out into the road or into the path of my unpredictable dog which I am making great efforts to control

Ohh I see maybe not an extendable then! Can you buy the same style training leads from Pets At Home? After seeing how many people use them I'm so tempted to get one! Just unsure of the brand or anything; I'll probably go with Ezy dog as I've seen so many people with their stuff and she needs a new harness too! Which one did you have before? Is it just called a Trixie lead? Smile

yer i would never recommend a flexi lead (the extendible ones) go for a police style these in this thread that has a clip either end, and a long training lead for a run around as you can get up to 100ft ones Smile

The trixie lead i do not recommend as their site supports prong collars . Ezydog stuff is fantastic, collars and harnesses go for it but as I'm finding out there are better and cheaper stuff out there

I bought a training line from PAH 30ft I think for over a tenner but you can buy them from amazon , ebay etc for peanuts so I've just bought a 50ft ( the red one you see in my other pics for £6.25 ) and on the back of that bought a black one and a splitter for them both when I am on my own ( 2 training lines is a nono on your own)
