    Best ones we brought were leather with slip chain collar not too long... cost approx £15.00 each.

    mistakes: rolled leather - just kept twisting

    ok: flat cord.

    good luck in the ring.

    Yes, I agree, the ones from J R Whippet rescue are brilliant - but they don't have any a the moment. They are currently looking for a new supplier, if I hear that they have managed to get some in stock - I will post it on here.

    Thanks very much. We're in South Wales. Danny's- Vanjonstone Fox Fleet, Sire is Elvencharm Zola at Turnstone and Dam is Turnstone Foxy Dreams. Dads a JW but mum has never been shown. First show is on 25th at Monmouth, getting nervous now but Danny doesnt seem bothered, suppose that all that matters.

    i was so nervouse at first ,,, think everyone is ,,, now i just think " its a dog show ,, not life or death ,, just here to enjoy it " no more nerves (w00t) go in with an open mind ,, think of it as a lovely day out and if your lucky enough to gain a place then so be it ,, if not then you still take the best dog home and plan for the next show :)) very good :luck: and please try and stay calm ,, nerves do pass down the lead so just enjoy ,,, :cheers: let us know how you get on ,, sharon

    I agree I did nothing at the hound show but still swore blind that I was taking the best three dogs home. :lol:

    Welcome to k9

    As for show leads I have several different types the same one does not necessaryily work for more than one dog. Bandit wears a nylon slip lead but his son Blaze hates it and makes himself sick with it on.My greyhound is usually shown on the same sort of lead but suddenly decided he didn't like it fortunately a friend with ridgebacks lent me a fine brass choke chain and he loved that and showed really well I now have to get him one. I am lucky as I have quite a few leads to choose from and swap round until I find one each dog is happy with.I will point out I would not use a choke chain on any of my whippets

    I try to match the colour of the leash to the dog's coat, so it is as invisible as possible. Sort of silvery grey for blue brindle, beige for fawn etc. While I choose the colour of my clothing to contrast my dogs. Never wear clothes in colour that match the dog, it is hard to see the dog properly in the lineup if he just blends into the background.

    :luck:
