Hi, we are not doing hunting sport, but I was wondering if anybody here uses the Hunter brand, and if yes, what size/width for the Hunter fetch line?

Thank you in advance!

Yes, I guess it goes by different names: slip cord, check cord, training line. It comes in 2 rope widths: 8 mm and 10 mm. I was wondering which is appropriate for a GR.

That is a slip lead (leash). The larger diameter would be better for a retriever. Most slip leads are about 6 feet in length.

A check cord is basically a long rope that attaches to the dogs collar. Check cords can range in length fro 20 feet to 50 feet.

I like 4 foot slip leads - more control when they're closer to you. And I think thickness of the leash can be dependent on your dog. I have one that is wider diameter, but wound up buying a skinny one one day for a variety of mundane reasons. Turned out, I like the skinnier one much better - but I have a very small Golden.
