    Hi guys :), i have started ringcraft, but took my leather show lead with me.
    Anyway the trainer suggested that i use a light weight thin slip lead to use for practice and save the posh one ;) for shows.
    I have been looking on the websites and can't find what im looking for????

    Sorry not much help, any ideas?
    Thanks

    blackdog trading sell slip leads google for their website. I use my show leads for ringcraft then the dogs learn that when they have that particular lead on they are expected to behave.
     
  3. The only advise I can give is to get the widest ones you can get away with - I have two very thin ones for my weim and I find them very difficult!

    There are hundreds on Ebay - or there were the last time I looked just search show lead - should cost about £3 - if you have probs pm me your addy as they sell them is a shop loacal to us for the same amount

    Well i thought that, but because i'm a complete novice :rolleyes: the leather one i have needs to soften, i must admit it was a bit tough, anyway she lent me a slip lead and was loads better, well Archie was not me! :D
    Thank you both for info will see how i get on :D
