8-Way Lead ™ 

By popular demand, our awesome multi-functional leash design is now available in Brahma!

The 8-Way Lead ™ is our most popular leash design. This European style, multi-functional lead is the most versatile leash available. This leash can do almost anything!

Features a bolt snap at each end, 3 fixed rings, and one loose ring. This leash does NOT HAVE A LOOP HANDLE, rather it has a bolt snap at each end so you can use the leash in any configuration. Worn hands-free over the shoulder, this leash allows approximately 4.5 feet from your shoulder to the dog. 

Check out the illustrations to see what this leash can do. This super sturdy yet supple lead goes beyond the standard dog leash. This multi-function lead can be clipped to a collar or harness, or may be used as a slip-collar for effective yet gentle training. The lead can be shorted or lengthened at any time. May be used as a hands-free leash by placing the leash over your shoulder. For dual control, you can connect one end of the leash to a training collar, and one to the regular collar. Great for use with head collars or harnesses.

Great for Schutzhund/protection work, obedience training, service dogs, and everyday use.

There is no stitching to come undone or rivets to wear out. Top quality hardware assures strength and durability. We believe so strongly in the quality of our work, we offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

Soft-Grip leather alternative:

Brahma Soft-Grip is constructed with webbing on the inside and a durable, non-tacky PVC coating on the outside.  This durable material is great for any extreme weather condition, resilient in cold weather, and is resistant to abrasions. It’s kinder to the hands than webbing or rope, and also resists knotting and tangling. Easy to care for: just wipe clean with soap and water.

Yes, our famous lifetime warranty stands behind the quality of this product.

Choose the width:

  • ½” wide (12.7 mm) for most dogs, medium and large breeds
  • ¾” wide (19 mm) for large breeds, this is a heavy-duty leash (not recommenced for dogs under 80 pounds)

All are made with durable chromed solid brass hardware (silver finish). Our heavy duty hardware is rust-free! Assembled with screw posts. (We never use unreliable rivets or stitching that can unravel.)

Modifications are possible!  Just let us know what you’d like. Check out custom options here. Need different hardware? Click here for leash snaps. 

Note: as with other synthetic materials, the lead can build up static and attract dust and hair. But it easily wipes right off.

    I just adopted a greyhound and this lead has been a life saver! The Brahma material is amazing. Feels like like well worn leather. It is tough as nails despite the soft feel. The multiple lead positions have been great to help my retired racer adjust. I LOVE the hands off feature! I will be getting the regular 6 foot lead. The craftsmanship on these leashes is outstanding! Well worth the price!

    I was looking for a well made leash with several length options for working with guide dogs and service dogs in training. I work with our local prison socializing these dogs as they work towards their goal of being placed with either a blind person or someone with PTSD. Bold Lead Designs was recommended to me and I am very pleased with the leash I chose. I can keep a dog close to me to reinforce their heel position training, I can loop it over my shoulder if I need access to my hands while walking, I can make the leash longer when working on loose leash walking. I also use this leash for walking my Wheaton Terrier to give me more control, as she loves to pull. Strong materials, looks great, rapid response from the company when I had a question. I love that it was made especially for me, not mass produced. I have recommended Bold Lead Designs to others looking for a high quality product!
