Create Your Bespoke Lead
The Heritage Slip Lead
This Slip Lead is smart enough for the show ring, but also very practical. Great for lasso-ing your dog quickly when out walking! The lead is approx. 36" long, though other sizes are available to special order, just let us know what your requirements are.
This is a traditional slip lead made from best quality 4mm Bakers London Tan Oak Bark Tanned Bridle Leather. We recommend that all products from this collection are oiled with Saphir Neatsfoot Oil when they are first received, which will change the colour from the original honey colour to a rich mid brown, soften the leather quite considerably and impart excellent weather resistance, making the Heritage Collection ideal for day in day out use in all weathers.
This lead is made from a full length strip of bridle butt to give a lead approx 36" from dog to handler when in use, hand cut, finished and stitched with tiger thread and using brass or stainless steel fittings to make a unique item that will last a lifetime given correct care. These slip leads can be worn across the body when not in use and slide freely, making an excellent and easy lasso to allow you to put your dog on the lead quickly and easily before they jump out of a car or similar without fumbling with trigger clips. We always use these leads ourselves, plus a rolled collar for tags, with our Italian Spinones.
