6ft Long Training Lead - Leather & Solid Brass
Long Lead Length - 183cm/6ft long dog training lead is suitable for walking two dogs at once or simply training one at a time.
Clip Closure - Trigger clips at each end to allow for adjusting the length and function of the lead, along with two dee rings and one o-ring.
Durable Quality - Made from three pieces of genuine leather joined with solid brass rivets.
Reliable materials - Three pieces of genuine leather give the lead longevity, strength and durability. Solid brass hardware is long lasting and resistant to corrosion. We use quality brass trigger clips and rings and this does give the lead some weight, so we recommend this lead for medium to large breed dogs.
Choices - You can choose from a gold (solid brass) or silver (nickel-plated solid brass) hardware colour and 11 leather colours.
DOG - HOW TO MEASURE YOUR DOG'S NECK
Using a soft tape measure, record the circumference of the neck at the point where a collar would naturally lie. Pull the tape so that it is snug but not tight. Enter this measurement in the personalisation text box when prompted. This measurement will be the middle hole of the collar, we will add at least another two holes either side. If your dog is a puppy, please let us know and we will make an allowance for growth when sizing the holes for the collar.
Please feel free to give us a range (up to 12cm, i.e. 38-50cm) so that we can make sure there are enough holes to suit your dog's growth. We can be very flexible with the number of holes provided in the collar.
This is personal preference, but as a guide choose 1/2" for tiny dogs, 3/4" for small dogs, 1" for medium dogs and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" for large dogs.

Leather is a natural material and it can display natural marking and colour variations. Over time, the leather will soften with the oils from your dog's coat, developing a natural patina. With a bit of love and care, leather ages gracefully! Give it the occasional clean and recondition with leather dressing, and it will reward you with many years of service. Avoid getting it saturated with water as this can cause the leather to become brittle. For dogs that love to swim, we recommend keeping a secondary, nylon collar for water-based outings. If your leather dog collar does get wet, allow it to dry naturally and then recondition with a good quality leather dressing.
We recommend using our leather balm regularly.
Brass will naturally dull and tarnish over time. You can leave it to develop a beautiful, natural patina or you can bring yours back to a beautiful sheen by polishing with brass cleaner.
