Bette will hopefully be in her first show in November. We have been working with her slowly and just getting her used to the lead that a family member gave to me. The problem is that this show lead is meant for smaller dogs (family member shows English Cockers) and I know I will need a more sturdy lead when Bette gets a bit bigger. Does anyone know where I might find one and the best to use? I've looked at dog shows and haven't seen one, just regular leashes. I've seen some people showing bassets with a light chain around the neck area and the rest cloth or leather like. Thanks for any advice!
