equipment questions

wolf had his first evaluation today and we're going to persue personal protection. our trainer said we needed a nice thick leather collar, a good thick long leed (leather, synthetic, or thick nylon), and a short leed. we went to 5 petstores and found nothing. can any of you recommend a place online i can get them? i don't want to just buy anything online, i'm afraid it may be cheap-that's why i didn't just google it...hoping for some recommendations from you pros

Elite Hallmark Ray Allen to name a few.... You'll need to buy it online, no local 'pet' stores will carry what you want, and the quality is usually good at the ones above or they would have complaint after complaint. I've never been disappointed.

Did your trainer suggest places to order from?

thanks! he suggested this one local pet place, but they were out in our size and we need them by next saturday, so i thought it might be quicker to order online.

Elite has quick shipping, I get orders within a couple of days without spending for overnight/that has always been my experience. Hallmark is the same, I've not ordered from Ray Allen.

You can get the collar at fleet farm for cheap. You buy a calf collar and cut it down. Same thing as an agitation collar, but cheap and easy to buy.

I use a 1/2" - 6 " leather leash for the long one and cut the handle off of a 1/4" - 4' lead for a short one. I get these from the pet store or else you can also get these from fleet farm.

You can also go on-line to the places above and get the official, but more expensive version.
