Designed for dog sports such as nose work and tracking. Perfect for play time and exercise, too. Super-durable, affordable training leads in any length!

Strong as a Brahma bull, this man-made leather alternative makes a fantastic all-weather dog leash. We love it for tracking leads (or long lines) due to the continuous length. It can take a beating through brush, creeks, and saltwater. It is flexible has a nice weight and feel that resembles leather. It won’t give you rope burn or absorb dirt/moisture like rope or nylon leads.

Brahma Leads come with our unmatched Lifetime Warranty.
Many lengths up to 50 feet available, price depends on the length. Select a regular handle, or no handle. Choice of color and width!

“I’ve finally just started using them over the last month because I wasn’t sure they were any different than my other long leads…..I absolutely LOVE them!  I have had dogs working in the rain, allowed them to swim and had them in very dusty environments…  The clean up and ease of use if fantastic.  My other former leads, needed washed, or oiled, etc…  These are fantastic training tools that I am thrilled with! Thank you! – Lorette, hearing dog and service dog trainer

Brahma Leads: 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, slides through brush without getting snagged. Easy to clean: Just wipe clean with soap and water.

We use screw posts to fasten the handle and hardware, so there’s no stitching or rivets to wear out or come undone (braiding not available). Can be made with or without a handle loop at your request. Yes, our famous lifetime warranty stands behind the quality of this product. (Most of our leash designs can be made in Brahma by request.)

Customization is available!

  • Add an O-ring to the handle, or an O-ring for a slip-collar
  • Distance Marker: a smooth marker rivet, or a tactile marker fob. Example: you may want a distance marker at 6 feet from dog end on a 10 foot leash. Perfect for CGC training!
  • Quick-Grab handle: add a second handle loop for convenience. Example: you may want a handle at 3 feet from the dog end to hold your dog closer.


Brahma Leads come standard with premium stainless steel bolt snaps! Our exclusive Shackle Snap is available by request. Or, click here to see alternate hardware selections.

This is a 33 foot Brahma in 1/2″ width being dragged through the mud as Hazel swims. Apologies for the poor quality video, but the dogs had fun swimming in the muddy lake, and that’s what counts!

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. Although not stain resistant, grime just rinses off! Simply wash with soap and water.

    Had one of these made without the handle for inside the house training. The material held up great, and it is really lasting a long time. I took it back in to add a handle, and they graciously added a handle at no charge. Great company and business!

    Amazing lead! We use it daily, and it still looks brand new (after 1 year). High quality materials at a good price point. My only suggestion would be to add minor texture so when wet (we train rain or shine), you would still have traction with the lead. Otherwise a great all around lead.

    Very affordable and are lasting! These leashes are wonderful for me. The leather hurts my hands but this material is a great alternative to it that doesn’t bother me at all. I use these leashes regularly and BLD is the only brand I buy.

    I have now purchased three of these leads, after being really impressed with the functionality of the first one. We like to go hiking in the woods and brush, and these leads don’t tangle, are easy to work with, don’t pick up brush and debris, and don’t get soaking wet, so our dogs are even able to go swimming.
    In addition, one of our dogs is fearful, and would bolt if spooked. I feel very secure using these leads, because they are so well constructed.
    I recommend them all the time. Thank you for making a quality product that is so functional!

    Tough lead for active dogs! I have two of these in the longest length – one 3-4 inch orange for my 90 lb. bloodhound/golden retriever and a 1/2 inch for my daughter’s French bulldog. They are perfect for both for Montana where the dogs want to run free and swim but can’t because of wildlife. They almost think they are off leash!

    I bought the 10′ for Nosework. It’s strong but lightweight not slick when wet an overall excellent lead. No doubt I will be back for other lengths. It is a big improvement over the leather leads I have been using.

    I have purchased two Bramha leads to use with our head strong golden retriever! He never leaves the house or the car with out his lead. It has been absolutely amazing! He pulls that lead through anything and everything, and all I have to do is wash it off with soap and water if needed! On one occasion he got it caught on the edge of an old building, and of course he kept pulling, and really got the lead stuck . We had to pull and tug for quite a while, and it finally popped out! If we had done that with ANY other lead it would have broken!

    I love this leash! I’m a full time dog trainer and this is by far one of the best training leashes I have ever used. Mine is 15ft – 1/2″ wide leash and I will soon be upgrading to one in 20ft length. This leash is tough, durable, easy to clean/disinfect and it’s just the right weight.

    This lead is wonderful. Sturdy yet not stiff, it cleans up in a jiffy and really makes walks a breeze. We use the Perfect Pace on our forest walks, a miracle lead if there ever was one, and this one for our treks to stores and dog classes. Everyone loves it and we let folks know exactly where they can get one.

    I purchased the 10′ to give my Great Dane a little more sniffing room on our field walks. I have no problems keeping the slack from tangling around her legs, the leash seems to glide through my fingers with ease. Works even better than I hoped.

    We were very excited to try out our Brahma; Dog Lead in Soft Grip coated webbing (leather alternative) in black 10´ length [medium 1/2" width]. Here is our honest review of the product ;
    We have been using the lead for the last few weeks and have been enjoying its length, evident durability and the easy clean ´non-tacky´coating of the product. It has proven to be fantastically light (dainty) yet hard-wearing in various conditions – we enjoy, for example, that it is not as heavy as our normal leather leash and doesn´t get heavier when wet. It is perfect for both light and extreme trips with our dog (in or out of town). The only negative remarks we would make about the product is the difficulty of grasping the lead when it becomes frozen/cold and thus slippery in our gloves. Also, since our dog is quiet large we would purchase a larger clip + thickness of lead. Overall, we are quiet satisfied with the lead and will continue to use it along with our other Bold Designs lead.
    Looking forward to continue using and purchasing your products in the years to come!

    I ordered a 50 foot long line and am absolutely thrilled with it! The huge amount of snow we currently have doesn’t make it slippery at all, and it isn’t showing any signs of wear. It is also comfortable in the hands, so even in warmer weather when you’re not wearing gloves, it will not give the rope burn effect like other long lines. It also doesn’t seem to tangle as easily as the average long line. I’m in love with this product!

    I ordered a 50 foot one and absolutely love it! It doesn’t hurt when it tangles around my legs, doesn’t get slippery from the snow and is seems to be very durable. My dog is 70 lbs and very strong but even when she ran to the end of the line, it didn’t hurt my arm. I’m also happy that in the warmer weather when I don’t need to wear gloves, I won’t have to suffer rope burn if I don’t, unlike the other long lines I’ve used.

    Now that we have had some snowstorms, I will add that this long line is great in the snow and does not get damaged the way that the rope ones I used previously did. Thank you so much! I just ordered two more.

    I am beyond thrilled with the long line! I had three others previously and often suffered cuts on my legs if I became tangled. Your line does not hurt if it wraps around me and also is clearly way more durable (and attractive!).

    I love the collar/leash/harness LED light. I just ordered several more to give as gifts.

    Asked my dog walker to help me review your
    Brahma lead:
    1) Very grab able, even with gloves.
    2) Not stiff in the cold.
    3) Flexible and light.
    4) Water proof.
    5) Hopes 6ft or 4ft will be available.

    Eleanor: Could not improve on my dog walker’s
    review, except to say Bold lead offers great service.

    This is a fantastic lead. I used it with my 11 month old German Shorthair Pointer. The lead was easy to clean and incredibly strong. I was so impressed with it, I let my parents use it with their 7 month old doberman. They LOVED it! The 10 foot length was a perfect length for us. We also enjoyed how the lead had a bit of weight on it, which really made a difference when working on recalls with the dogs. Fantastic product! Might get one in orange!!!

    I love my new Brahma Lead. It is durable and good-looking and perfect for NoseWork. I am pleased that dirt and mud will not affect this lead. Thanks for creating a great new product!

    I’ve been using the new Brahma lead for about a week now. I train dogs in AKC style trailing and I usually use 20 and 30 foot leather leads. The Brahma material feels good in the hand and doesn’t get slippery when wet. It doesn’t absorb water, so it dries quickly and is easy to work with. The material is a little bit stiff at first, same as new leather, but with a little work it seems to be loosening up…again, similar to leather. Overall I am impressed with the product and will continue to use it for trailing. This is a great utility material that is much cheaper than leather.

    Love the new line! I have ordered leads of similar material from other manufacturers but the workmanship on yours is exquisite. I have the brown 1/2″ lead with lovely brass accents. The best part about these leads is that I can trekking through a muddy field and then just quickly wipe it clean before putting it away. I hope to get a few more in the thinner size too!
    Thank you!
