Default Single buckle or combination lead.

Well I need another Greyhound muzzle, I always like to have at least two in the flat, and I looked around, and saw a set, you can get a muzzle (either pink or blue) a collar and either a single buckle or combination lead with it, so I decided that when I get paid I may aswell get two sets of this, pink for Honey, blue for Diesel, but I have a question, does anyone have experience of and know about both types of lead and what would they say is better? They will be for when the dogs have to stay on leads only and a bit of extra secrutity for when their needs to be, and although they wont be used a lot tbh I've wanted a buckle lead for a while for them, but don't know enough about the other lead to say yes or no

Chaz, sorry to be so long replying. I just noticed your question, and that no one had replied.

To be sure we are talking about the same thing:

Combination lead - lead permanently affixed to the D-ring on the martingale or sighthound collar, usually with rivets through the lead.

Single buckle - detachable lead that can be unbuckled, if needed.

I would always go with the detachable lead for safety reasons. For instance, let's say you were out somewhere and lost your grip on the lead and Honey took off, and the lead became hopelessly entangled in something. With a combination collar/lead, you would have to remove the collar to free Honey, leaving you with no way to hold onto Honey. With a buckle lead, you can always unbuckle the lead and still have the collar in place.

Besides, the buckle is a little more stylish.

Thanks Vagreys, I did begin to wonder about the lead being permently attached to the collar, I think that I will just order a couple of buckle leads

Ive always personally preferred the buckle leads. I have traditional leather ones with good strong clasps and always use leather fishtail collars.....I do have some of the webbing broad type of collars but hardly use them to be honest.
