Sometimes called the Police Dog Lead or simply Training Lead. It's used historically by police and army dog handlers (the different length settings vary depending on type of patrol or pursuit). The Adjustable Training Lead is now much sought-after by dog owners who appreciate its versatility.

Ideal for the multi-tasking dog owner. Perhaps you're a parent pushing a pram and walking the dog at the same time. Perhaps you're a runner and want your dog to tag along hands-free. Or maybe you're glad to adjust the lead to its full length of 6-feet to give your dog more room to roam on its walk. It's also brilliant for securing your dog to a park bench, or a pub table, when you stop for a rest or refreshment.

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 thousands of pounds.
Metal fittings are solid brass or nickel-plated solid brass.
Total length is 6-feet at its longest (create a handle at one end). But the lead can be adjusted to throw over your shoulder or secure around your waist. Can also be configured to a standard length of about 1-metre.
You'll notice the lead also features two trigger hooks so you can actually use it for two dogs. Most dog owners, professional handlers and dog walkers appreciate the hands-free option.

    Available now in ALL classic and contemporary colours, although not images ready yet (we're working on that).*

    Internal rope cord is a pre-stretched polyester braid-on-braid (the same rope used by racing yachts with a breakage load into the hundres of kilograms).

    Around the rope we wrap, glue and stitch the soft European leather.

    Metal fittings are secured / stiched into the lead supported by full-grain hide leather sections.

    Metal fittings are made of solid brass or, in the silver, a superior metal alloy with 100kg+ load-bearing.

    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.

    The only lead I will ever own!

    I love this lead so much, it is so versatile and lightweight. I love how easy it is to clip around a chair leg when you’re out at a pub, the long length option so my whippet has a bit further to roam and most of all the hands free option which has made going to the Post Office with her a whole lot easier! It’s beautiful quality. I am so glad I invested in it.

    Purchase of rolled adjustable training lead with additional short lead and padded collar

    Amazing customer service.
    I asked if the training lead could be customised with an extra attachment in the middle of the fold to be able to attach to collar and harness for safety and more control to train to not pull but not so reliant on the collar. I never just attach lead to harness for safety in case of failure of harness breaking. This D&H customised exactly how I wanted.

    I also purchased a padded collar this is the best collar I’ve ever had. Nothing was too much for the D&H team. Very impressed with all my products.
