D&H Rolled Leather Slip Lead
Our classic rolled leather dog slip lead, now in colour,Â handmade in England.
The thickness (gauge) is 10mm, constructed with a 6mm pre-stretched polyester cord around which we wrap, glue and stitch the soft leather. The internal rope isÂ made for sheet and halyard use by yachtsmen - which means it won't rot if it gets wet, and has excellent strength and durability and a tensile strength into the thousands of pounds.
The length of the lead on an average size Labrador, for example, is about 80 - 90 cm from the nape of the neck to the start of the handle (overall length of the lead is taken up by the neck size. So, on a Springer Spaniel, the length to the handle will be longer than if the lead is used, for example,Â on aÂ dog with a thicker collar/neck).
Originally available in Brown or TanÂ with brass O-ring, now also available in Pink, Blue, Yellow, Green, Red, Orange and Black with silver O-ring. (The silver O-ring is nickel-plated brass.)
Please note: leather is a natural product. To ensure its durability, allow to air-dry completely before re-use if yourÂ lead/collar gets wet. Do not allow the leather to come into contact with the chemicals from commercially-available flea spot-on treatments. This will damage the leather and may cause the dye to run.
