Thanks for the heads up about dropping the lead, I hadn't thought about that happening so will have to be extra careful!

I use the 6 foot ones for walks around the busy city, and the 15 foot ones for the parks.
Thanks for mentioning the training leads LS. I have seen them used a couple of times when we have been at puppy classes and the one they used there was a really thick old thing that looks pretty heavy and not great for a 4 pound chi! I had a look at the link you gave and they look much better and easy to use! I'm going to have a look to see where I can get one over here and give it a try. Think I'll still get a retractable lead too just to see how we get on with it.
I can't wait to go shopping now so we can try them out. I just feel like our routine walks have got a bit boring recently so I'm hoping these will make things a bit more fun!
