I use various lead lengths depending on the dog and depending on the venue I'm showing in. If I'm at an all breed show and the ring isn't huge, I'll use one of the shorter, finer leads that I've used on the English Cockers I showed. Those are generally 4-5' long, and yes, they have pretty beading xD
If I'm at an all breed show and we're outdoors/have a bigger ring, I'll use my 8' buffalo hide lead (that's my "go to" lead). I use it on dogs that I know will move out, but won't haul butt (aka, drag me), or on smaller dogs, like Mirada (50 lbs vs a 90 pound freight train). Mirada is relegated to the 8 ft lead usually, as she can use the whole lead and continue doing her job. If I give her the 12 ft lead, she decides she can just gallop with the extra four feet (we're working on that, and the issue should be taken care of before nationals).
