D&H Rolled Leather Slip Lead
Our classic rolled leather dog slip lead, in traditional or vibrant contemporary colours, 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 is 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 hundreds of kilograms.
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, on a dog with a thicker collar/neck).
Originally available in Brown or Tan 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.)

Important note about slip lead usage: slip leads are used commonly by show dog and gun dog handlers as well as in kennels and dog groomers and, with correct and safe use, they are ideal for most dogs. The slip lead is not appropriate for all breeds however and we recommend you understand correct and safe handling of a slip lead before using.
Please note: leather is a natural product. To ensure its durability, allow to air-dry completely before re-use if your 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.
