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.

Care Instructions

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.

Beautiful but practical collars and leads

I can’t praise these products highly enough . They are beautifully crafted and look wonderful , but are strong and practical too . Presentation and packaging first class and customer service excellent - I will be back for more

Fantastic quality

A quality rope with soft covering. The slip noose forms a nice firm circle which easily releases as pressure relaxes to form a gentle restraint.... no sticking tight like the cheaper examples.

excellent quality lead.

These lead are very useful for agility as quick and easy to remove. This is MUCH better quality and longer than other slip lead I have. I am using it to do some walking to heel exercise with my Jack RussellXCavalier.
