I just got a 30" lead for Shania. She is completely untrustworthy off leash since our city has been so anti-dog. It's only recently that I've found the 2 metre limit on leash length removed from the by-law and the other being reworded from prohibited from "parks" to "playgrounds." Now we can go play ball at the park and be legal
For the first 10 years she had always been combined to a 4-6 ft leash off our property and god forbid she touch city grass. In our yard it was a leash or tie out (as long as I could make them).
