    I use a large Ancol control lead from pets at home, its wicked!!

    Has a clip at either end and 2 D rings along the lead, so you can have it at different lengths, wear it across you body or walk 2 dogs on it, yesterday I made a halti out of it :thumbup:

    only a tenner, and it holds my working husky fine :lol:

    Pets at home are stocking a new range of 4Peaks leads and collars,iv bought a couple for my motley crew and am really pleased with them.Theyre not dainty leads or collars,more your outdoorsy type rugged ones,and not badly priced either :)

    I bought a training lead off of ebay, was £6, and has triggers on each end, and then a o-ring in the middle, and 2 d rings also.

    I use a Halti training lead which has a clip on each end a big O ring in the middle and 2 D rings, it cost me £5 from my dog training class. It's a brilliant strong lead you can wear it around your waist for hands free dog walking, make it adjustable lengths, attach a stray dog in an emergency (one on each end).

    It's my favourite lead I've ever owned and over the years there there have been MANY.

    *Edit: I forgot to say that it's also brilliant for short term tethering I.E. outside shops etc. as you don't have to un-clip it from your dogs collar and it will go around almost anything.

    I started off like you with the more flimsy type then got an ancol rope one with reflective bits. Much nicer to grasp and much more substancial.

    I've also got Halti training leads for my two.

    As metaldog mentioned, it is very adaptable and it's also strong and very soft on the hands all the way down so you can comfortable wrap it around your hand if needed.
