huntergreen thanks, never heard of the lock jaw till i clicked on the sight.

jocoyn It is heavy and you have to make sure it is rotated right in order to use it..then it is kind of clunky putting on the collar. I will accept that it could be more secure in some situations but, honestly, for most applications a simple bolt snap or the scissor snap he uses (which I have bought at Lowes and tied onto lines) is adequate.

I think there must have been a half dozen people at my recent seminar with his leads (beta biothane is good for HRD dogs since you want to decontaminate the lead at times) and not one of them liked that lockjaw snap.

Skywalkers Mom I admit my guy has 9.8 acres to enjoy and smaller fenced yard. He does have warp speed but can go off leash and can be called back. For walks in towns or cities I use a Gentle Leader. No long distance "hope I dont end up on my ass" moments. Though some fools think its on him because he is a "biter".

lalachka Hey, jafo. This happens to us a lot. I fell a few times already (I had him tied to my waist on a 33ft) and when I let him drag 33 ft I'm always worrying he will get caught on something.

It seems like you had the same problems, how did you solve them? Both if it's dragging and tied to you?

I'm taking him on vacation to a cabin and he will have lots of room to run. I have not let him roam free outside because it worries me. Even though I don't think he would leave me I wanted to get him a long lead to keep him from getting to curious in the new sights and wilderness tat will surround us.

Does anyone have a good recommendation for a long lead I should get? He's an 80 lbs Dutchie/GSD cross and reaches low flying jet aircraft speeds haha. Should I get a harness too or just use his normal collar?

Thanks in advance! Jerry thanks you too!
That is one good looking shepherd!

I got my long lead from a local pet store. That with a flat collar works for me. I would recommend some training in basic obedience though before using it. Collars and leashes can cause injuries to you and the dog if he reaches warp speed with the long lead on. You will run out of leash fast and the sudden stop is painful. Trust me.
