Read the Article

Light, thin, and flexible. The skinny Brahma Lead XS is designed for training, dog sports such as nose work, and is perfect for playtime and exercise.

The extra small width of the Brahma Lead XS provides a lightweight option that is great for small dogs or puppies and can be an excellent alternative to our regular Brahma Leads which can be too heavy or bulky for smaller pups. 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 best for dogs under 30 pounds.

Made to order to your desired length, with or without a handle, and choice of premium leash snap hardware (solid brass or stainless steel). See below for more information on customization options.

Artisan handcrafted in our own workshop. Made in Colorado, USA!

Custom made to order! Allow 3-5 business days for creation.

Brahma XS is available in any length ranging from 4 to 50 feet long. Established lengths include: 4ft, 6ft, 8ft, 10ft, 15ft, 20ft, 33ft, and 50ft.

If you need a length that is not listed, you can modify the leash to make it longer or shorter. To do so, select the length of the leash that is closest to the desired length and add the leash to your cart. Next, go to our webpage called Add Features – Modify or customize your lead. On that page, specify the leash you want modified and then select an option to modify the length. There are two options:

  1. Modify the length: shorter
  2. Modify the length: longer, starting at.

Select the option that you need, indicate the desired overall length in Notes or Special Requests (just above the Add to Cart button) and then add it to your cart. Now you can continue shopping or checkout, and we’ll take it from there!

Example: You need a leash that is 25ft. long. Begin by selecting 20ft. for the leash length. Add the leash to your cart and then go to our webpage Add Features – Modify or customize your lead. Under “What product would you like to modify?”, type the description of the leash to be modified (ie: 20ft Brahma Lead XS). Next, select the Modify the length: Make longer and in the Notes or Special Requests box (just before the Add to Cart button) indicate the leash length that is being requested. For example: “Please make 20ft Brahma Lead XS 25ft long”. Finally, Add to Cart and you’re all done! Once we receive your order, we will review it and if we have any questions we will reach out to you.
