D&H Double Twist Leather Dog Lead
Our rolled leather dog lead but doubled, and twisted.
Made of soft European leather in a range of colour options, solid brass or nickel-plated brass fittings.
Suitable for medium and large breeds.
The internal core of our lead is a specially-made pre-stretched polyester rope (6mm or 8mm) with a breakage point in the hundreds of kilograms. The rope (around which we wrap, glue, stitch the soft leather) is also ideal for marine use and won't rot therefore if it gets wet.

The Double Twist leather lead is approx 130cm (about 51-inches) long including the handle and trigger hook.
Medium Plus is approx 1cm thick per strand with proportionally larger clip.
BIG DOG is thicker again at approx 1,2cm per strand and furnished with a substantial closing hook normally used to secure race-horses.
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.
I have ordered 2 leads and a collar from these guys, and the quality and craftsmanship is amazing! Defiantly will be using again.
Just what we needed. Short and strong lead for large and lively dog.
Dog lead needs to be much stronger
Handel on collar is a bit to big looks ugly
Thanks for your feedback though I can assure you the lead is made with two intertwining rope cords that have a breakage point in the hundreds of kilograms (also used by racing yachts so won't rot if it gets wet). Likewise the trigger hook will have a breakage point in the hundreds of kilograms. All pieces are hand-selected and all items individually handmade to ensure these are the strongest items you could find anywhere. The handle on the collar is, I guess, an aesthetic choice. Sorry to hear you think it looks ugly but we think it looks fab and works brilliantly and have supported with images on the product page so that you could see what it looks like before purchasing. Thanks again.
Another great quality product. I have the matching Big Dog Collar, the two are stunning products and are both a must have for your large dog. The product not only turns heads (looks great), but the craftsmanship that goes into the production, is felt by owner and dog alike. Very happy, can only recommend.
