Solid Brass Chain Lead/Leash with Leather handle
Featuring a heavy duty solid brass chain and leather handle, our 1" (25mm) wide brass and leather dog lead is well suited to medium to large breeds.
Handmade using premium vegetable-tanned Italian leather and rust-proof solid brass hardware.
Choose from 11 premium leather colours to complement our leather dog collars.
The vegetable-tanned leather has been selected for its strength and beauty - as it ages it will soften and develop a unique, natural patina, whilst remaining extremely strong to withstand harsh and demanding conditions. It has been dyed all the way through with non-toxic water dyes. The edges of the leather lead handle have been rounded, smoothed and sealed so it feels comfortable in your hand.
Cast from solid brass, our hardware has been selected for maximum strength and to ensure our products remain rust-free for life. All hardware is kept securely in place with strong solid brass rivets.
Lead length: approx. 72cm from tip of trigger clip to top of handle.
Lead width: 1" (25mm)
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.
