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.

“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.

32 reviews for Brahma Leads – affordable dog training leash / tracking long line

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    Just bought a 33′ teal Brahma tracking lead at Clicker Expo Saint Louis this weekend. I did not catch the names of the salespeople but they were very kind, helpful, informative, and not at all pushy or coercive. I arrived back home today and got the chance to use my lead with my dog in a huge field where we go to play fetch. The brilliant color showed up perfectly against the grass! At one point my dog did unfortunately yank me toward another dog, and the lead was wrapped around my hand – I have ZERO rope burn. No injury at all really. The brahma material is incredible and safe to boot! The leash was very easy to wind back up on the way back to the car, and didn’t tangle at all. I’m very impressed and 100% satisfied with my purchase.

    Love my 10 meter orange lead. My German Shepard Pit Bull mix puppy cannot break or damage this thing and he is currently 10 months old, not neutered and 80 lbs. He has chewed on it but I do not see any damage. We live and play in the mountains, rivers and on the beach. Works great in water. It is easy to handle no matter how wet and dirty it gets. The more you use it the better it is. I am impressed at its resistance to tangling. I have never had it tangle on me. The orange color has been a great safety feature. We use the caddy and I feel it is a must with the longer leads.

    I have two of these leads now and absolutely love them! The material is sturdy and holds up in all weather conditions and it’s not too prone to wrapping up around my dogs’ legs. Being able to choose from a wide variety of lengths makes it so easy to personalize this to your needs. (I have a 10′ and a 20′.) I was a little skeptical since it’s narrower than my usual leashes, but the 1/2″ width works perfectly for my 40-50 pound dogs. The addition of new colors has only made this product better! The only thing I’d like to see for the future are options for padded handles and elastic “pulling” protection.

    I bought this lead in the 15 foot length to work my GSD in nosework. We live in the Pacific Northwest so I was looking for some thing I could use during the wet season. The lead is great for all wet conditions and I have used it when we go to the river. It floats ,is water proof and the hunter orange can be seen in the water as well as in the late evening. The construction is top notch and the durability is great. It has a few scuffs from rocks and brush but that has not effected the strength integrity. The only con is it is a bit stiff, but I am use to the softness of a leather leash.

    I ordered the 50 foot, 3/4 inch Brahma in orange. It’s been a great addition to my younger dog’s “outdoor wardrobe.” It’s a great and durable training good and it’s held up well through all the seasons. The lead has acquired some dark spots with age, but these do not seem to affect it’s durability or it suppleness. Great addition for dogs in training and when you need the flexibility of a long line without the expense of leather.

    We bought a 33 foot, 1/2 inch Brahma orange lead for training our dogs. This is a really excellent product. We went on vacation and took our dogs out on the beaches where they could run free with the training leash attached. The orange shows up well even in the water. The lead is very strong and sand resistant, winds up well; good solid clasp. Just perfect for what we needed. The only caution would be to watch out for ‘rope burn’ on the hands. Would recommend your company to anyone. Thank you!

    I love this leash! I’ve used both nylon, rope, and leather leashes before, but this Brahma leash is my favorite. It’s super comfortable in my hand, no more rope burns! Plus, I never have to worry about it getting dirty because after a simple wipe it’s back to looking brand new. I always recommend this leash to everyone I know who has dogs!

    I learned about the Brahma leads through the trainer I work with and just ordered my first. The material is easy to take care of – wipes clean easily and does not absorb fluids. I purchased without the hand loop so it’s especially wonderful as a drag line when we’re training. It’s easy to handle and grip and the best material for use in water.

    Will be ordering more Brahma leads in the future. The service and workmanship from Bold Lead Designs surpassed expectations.

    Thanks for offering great products and service!

    I really love the fact that this leash is made of a leather alternative, but is incredibly strong and durable. It’s also great because it isn’t affected by water, sand and dirt at all. It is easy to rinse off and dries quickly! I have the 6′ leash but I’m considering getting a longer one as well! Definitely recommend!!

    Very durable, quality parts and feels good in the hand. Love the 20′ length— gives my dog the extra freedom she deserves! Thanks!

    I have gone through about 5 ‘other’ 30 ft leads in the last year. Picking up a Brahma lead was the best thing I ever could have done. It has made if six months through rocky, Utah mountains, hiking, and camping without showing any signs of wear.

    I was givin a 6 foot lead as a gift a few years ago. I have to say that it is one of the best gift I have ever gotten & my ultimate go to leash. This lead has been used on 10lb puppies to an 80lb American Bulldog. It has been drug over and through grass, dirt, mud, water & concrete. A quick wipe down & it looks as good as new.
