For a collar we use either a choke chain, a short link fur saver, or an all chain martingale. The lead is a 1/4" leather lead at least 6' long,and you can go longer for specialties when you have more room to move your dog out.
You can get Maya to move out in front of you. Get someone to call her from each corner of the ring when you are practicing gaiting. Just go from corner to corner, till you get all around the ring. Use a command like "let's go", and make it upbeat and happy.
