“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 cleanup 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 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!
Handle End Styles available:
- Regular Loop Handle (most popular)
- Regular Loop Handle with a loose O-ring in the handle loop
- End in an O-Ring (no handle loop)
- Bolt Snap on Handle End (no handle loop)
- No Handle (no handle loop or hardware) Great for Tracking leads!
- Open Handle (bolt snap that clips to a fixed O-ring 18″ from the end) Overall length is measured with the handle loop closed
- Distance Marker: a smooth marker rivet. Example: you may want a distance marker at 6 feet from dog end on a 10-foot leash. Perfect for CGC training! (marker fob no longer available)
- 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 close. Quick-Grab Handles are made with the center of the handle grip at the requested measurement. Please note: Due to the length of handle, and hardware, used to form the Quick-Grab Handle, requests made that are 16″ or less from the dog end will be crafted at the dog end.

- Make the “dog end” chew-resistant with a 24″ stainless steel chain (ex: a 10 foot leash will have chain plus 8 feet of Brahma)

- The following specialty snaps are available by request.
- Scissor/trigger style snaps are available for 1/2″ or wider leashes by request; please know we don’t recommend these as they are not as reliable as our standard options. You may select special hardware if you’d like. (NOT available on small width)
