What type of leashes?

I use a cotton horse lead I throw it over my neck, and hands free walking. I have 2 ft leads. and 30 ft for trails and swimming. What types do people use? I had a 6 ft lead that had a handle at 2 ft it always got on a foot.

I have just three: I have a 18" walking lead and a 6 foot nylon slip lead and a 30 foot nylon training lead. The 30 footer also gets used on the "cable run" in the back yard. I attach it to the pulley on the cable and to Neka's collar.

I don't know how long mine is but I want to point out that when you get one to get metal hooks that connects to your dogs collar. The plastic ones break!! I had it happen to me in the middle of the woods. I was freaking out because the whole way home I had to Carry him and I thought I was gonna die!

I use six foot leather leashes, though I've been wanting to purchase shorter ones. Jasmine somehow always managed to get all tangled up.

I have 4' and 6' long nylon leads. The 4' ones are used on normal walks while the 6' ones are used in obedience training. I also have a 30' nylon lead for working on recalls etc... with an unreliable dog.

OH my....I have a BOX full of leashes....
I have at least 10 of the normal leashes in various colors and designs depending on the dog.

I have 1 of the longest flexi leashes (quite a few feet) and one normal flexi.

I have a extreamly long leash for teaching recalls and stuff.

I am getting some leather leashes for competitions and stuff.

We use the retractable leashes. Lady's is 20 feet, i believe, and Gizmo's is 10..but we keep the leashes short on walks and such, and let them run as they please on potty trips in the yard.

I have a veritable dog supply store, here. I have numerous 6-foot leads, mostly, but not all leather. I use a 6-foot 1/2-inch lead that's braided at the ends for Bubba on a regular basis. Numerous long lines, ranging from 10-foot to 30-foot. I have a 23 year old special quick-release police lead.
Zora'sdad, I had the same problem with that particular leash!! Hahahaha.
I have enough supplies here for the rest of my life. Every once in a while, I find someone with a need I can fill, so sometimes something in my collection gets donated.
As you can see, Bubba loves the 10-foot cotton horse lead the best!

I have 12" leads for off leash training, they are almost there. I use 15' and 30' for training and longlining.They are great for sit on recall and down on recall at distances also for sit in motion and down in motion I can do these at different distances. I have 4' leads for walking, I found that 6' leads are too long for walks.
rest in peace my little Nikko. until we meet again. momma misses you and her heart aches every time she thinks of you, wishing you were still here to play with Joey and Elsa.
