    Who makes a good lead for taking dog to and from the holding blind? What length is best, 36"?

    Try Dogs Afield or one of the other catalogues. I just use the same ol' couple dollar lead I've had forever. Snap end through the handle to form a "collar."

    I had a guy make me one out of para chord and it looks awesome, has a twist to it, and is a slip kind, hit me with your e-mail and I can send you a pic, he made a couple for me, I could part with one if need be.

    I bought a Mendota lead to use at hunt tests. I think I picked mine up at Bass Pro. It was about $14, and it works well for what I needed.
