    Hello I Am looking for a better quality dog leash. I am confused between cotton rope dog leash and Nylon climbing rope dog leash. Which dog leash do prefer better.? Appreciate your help.cotton is good for earth and comes in different elegant colours while Poly pro Nylon is more durable I guess.

    I use one of these horse lead reins:

    Shires Cushion Web Lead Rein
    £4.30

    Cheap, strong, soft in the hand, various colours. I have a black one and a neon green one. Has a handle, unlike many lead reins.

    Made of polyester.

    I`ve used a halti training lead for years but I don't bother with things like colour, I did try a change with a double ended fleece lead but didn't like it as much so gave it away and back to my trusty old lead!

    They are aren't they, I sometimes walk family dogs and have to take my lead as I find anything else so uncomfortable. I have a leadmate on my lead too because I get pain up my little finger and side of my hand - worse in the winter. The halti training lead definitely works well with the leadmate.

    I like leather leads - strong but softer on the hands than nylon and have a bit of natural 'give' in them, so there's no harsh jolting.

    As @Burrowzig says, a good, stitched leather lead is my first choice; invest in a nice soft one (or treat it with Flexalan to soften it) and it will be easy and comfortable to hold and last for years. I have one that is probably 20+ years old and still used daily.

    Otherwise, cotton over nylon every time for a training lead.

    Have to agree with this, Stan can be a really excited puller and loses his head. Till he starts to listen its him he's a 0-,60 dog is how we describe him. He's got 3 lovely rolled leather leads and you can feel the natural give in them. Friend has just made me a fabric leads so all leads are patching and it's not quite as nice due to the natural leather give.
