1 flexi lead
1 30 ft nylon training lead
1 red traffic tab
1 bright orange mountain rope with a heavy duty bull snap for camping (I love this leash)
6 rescue leashes (one for each dog) two upstairs two down stairs and two in my car.
2 slip lead leashes
1 6 in one leash that I use when I take Dodger running.

So I'm back to update this thread. Last time I got a 7 feet police lead that can be used as a waist leash. I LOVED this leash for jogging and running errands. Also key to tethering in the house. 6 feet leash with handle loop was great for walking and potty runs since this gave her more leash to sniff. Traffic lead wasn't used as often.

Unfortunately she somehow pulled these into her crate so here I am for new leashes!!!

Getting a replacement waist leash, another 6 feet, and a 4 feet leash with loop handle.

The leashes are cheap and great but shipping is hella expensive.

Lol you're welcome!!! I've had several dogs at a time and have accumulated a bunch of dog training equipment.

Just for Grim, I have a 6 foot leather, a long line, and The Ultimate leash. This is just so far, mind you. My wife just informed me she saw a Batman leash and collar at a pet store....

You can get all sorts of different leads... especially for sports.

On the post you quoted:
-6ft nylon leash is just a regular leash that most people use on a daily basis.
-Flexi leash is one that is retractable.
Flexi® Explore Extra-Long Retractable Leash - Sale - Dog - PetSmart
-Nylon training leashes are usually long lines to use for tracking, or anything where you want the dog to have a longer leash (10ft +)
Top Paw® Cotton Web Training Leashes - Leashes - Collars, Harnesses & Leashes - PetSmart
-Traffic tab is used when you want the dog close to you... Many use it for sports to attach to other collars (like a prong), or some use it to have more control in crowded areas (hence the name, traffic tab)
Olive - Traffic & Training Lead - Tan
-Orange mountain rope.... or any sort of bright orange lead... is used when in the woods, camping, hiking, etc... so this way the dog is easily spotted by owner and other people in the woods... especially hunters. Bull snap is just another snap for the end of the leash. (used a lot with horses and cattle)
Here's some of the different snaps, including the Bull snap:
"Boss Lead" with Bull Snap, Dogs, Dog Leashes for Large Dogs, Custom Hardware Snap Leashes
-Rescue leashes are usually leashes that require no collar. They just slip on and resemble more of like a soft choker. "slip leash" (unless he means something different by this)
Leerburg | Dominant Dog Slip Lead

Hope this helps.
