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).

It takes 3-5 business days for the making of your item. In most cases, we can dispatch immediately from available stock in our workshop. Sometimes we'll have to make your order on demand.
The full length of the slip lead is approx 155cm - but you'll need to account for how much length is looped over your dog's head to determine the length of lead remaining (hope that makes sense!)
A cleaning with dubbin or saddle soap, then buffed up with a leather restorative like Neat's Foot Oil or a beeswax product (e.g. Renapur or Leather Genie) will help restore the leather to its natural lustre and protect it against the elements.
To help ensure the longevity of your dog's leather collar, allow to air-dry (not on a radiator) after it gets wet and ensure it is dry before re-using.
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.
