The perfect companion for your Classic Collar

 


I make these dog leads with high quality, USA bridle leather and solid brass hardware. Each lead is made with hand tools - the result is a strong, handsome lead that will last for years.  The lead has a comfortable handle and a mechanism for two different lengths (long mode & heel mode).


The leads are 48" +/- when in long mode & 28" +/- when in the shorter "heel" mode


How the leads are made:

  • It all starts with a side, which is half a cow, of 10-12oz Wicket and Craig bridle leather
  • A ⅝” strap is cut with our homemade strap cutter. 
  • Straps are cut to length, and the ends are shaped with strap-end punches
  • Holes are punched for the snap swivel and handle
  • Both ends are skived down to reduce the thickness and make it easier to attach the hardware
  • Swivel snap & D-ring hardware are attached with Chicago screws
  • Maker’s mark is pressed into the lead
Materials:
  • 5/8”Wickett and Craig veggie tanned bridle leather (10-12oz)
  • Antique brass swivel snap 
  • Antique brass Chicago screws
  • Antique brass o-ring
