I don't like retractable leashes either, as I think they are dangerous for many of the reasons Pam mentioned. I have a couple of 20' heavy webbed nylon leashes that I have used at the beach and in the yard when training. I think they are much better and provide the same freedom as the retractable leash. If you do settle on a retractable for the park or wherever, don't forget to use it with a harness and not a collar because as Pam said, the end of the line can be violent and definitely is not good for a small breed like ours.
