The ideal show lead is like an invisible string. The judges eyes should be focused on the dog not the lead or the handler.Cordo-hyde is a unique wax-coated cotton material that can be balled up corral the lead in hand and it has enough body so that the dog will respond to a handler's tug on the lead in the show ring. Resco Cordo-hyde show leads are available in black, white, mahogany (dark brown) and tan. Available in two width; 3/16" and 3/8". All are packaged in zip lock bags.
