Light, thin, and flexible. This narrow dog lead is designed for training, dog sports such as nose work, and is perfect for playtime and exercise.

New extra small width/weight is great for small dogs or puppies when our regular Brahma Leads are just too heavy or bulky. A safer alternative to retractable leashes, this light line is perfect where freedom to wander is desired, but being off-leash is dangerous. This dainty leash is very flexible, and best for dogs under 30 pounds. Makes a great light check cord for fieldwork or house training for larger breeds when a heavy-duty line is unnecessary.

Made to order to your desired length, with or without a handle, and choice of leash snap hardware.
