A classic, simple slip lead. The Kennel Lead is a British style slip lead. All in one collar and leash. No snaps or fasteners. We make the lead with a fob for adjusting how far the ring slides, so it can be snugged up to the dog’s neck.

Made from the same premium American leather we use to make all of our products, artisan handcrafted in our own workshop, with a lifetime warranty. You won’t find a better leather slip lead anywhere.

The classic simple gear is often the most difficult to find. Here’s an old-style British slip lead, easy to use leash with slip collar. No fuss. No snaps. Made to order.

Made of our soft and extremely durable leather, this traditional leash will out-perform any regular leash. We are so confident that this is the last leash you will ever need, we offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

This is the best quality leash you will find anywhere. There is no stitching to come undone or rivets to wear out. We use only the best and most durable leather that is always soft to the touch and only improves with age. All edges are beveled for a smooth feel. Top quality hardware ensures strength and durability.

Select Leather:

Our Golden TAN BRIDLE Leather is 100% American vegetable tanned leather, made with NO dyes or toxic metallic chemicals. Reminiscent of fine English horse tack, this leather is superior in quality to any other leash you’ve seen. Every leash is HAND-OILED to bring out the softness, so your leash arrives supple and feels great in your hands immediately and only improves with age. The color will darken with use and age. Solid brass hardware.

Our lovely BLACK LATIGO is solid black, and superior to ordinary leashes in texture and quality, cut from select from USA hides. It is incredibly durable, yet is very flexible. Feels great in your hands and will simply get better with age. We use only the highest quality chrome plated solid brass hardware (some hardware is stainless steel depending on the size).

Choose the overall length of leash:  4, 5 or 6 feet  – The length of this leash is measured with the slip collar portion closed/collapsed. Please note that your dog’s neck will use of some of the length of the leash to form the collar section, the overall length will vary depending on your pup’s neck size.

Choose Width Size:

Small (3/8” / 7mm. width)—Best for smaller and medium-sized dogs. Lighter weight leather is braided at both ends; this narrow width is very secure. Small yet strong hardware.

Medium (1/2” / 11mm. width)—Great for medium sized dogs, yet sturdy enough for larger dogs. Great for people with petite hands, or who prefer a lighter weight leash. Braided at both ends. *most popular choice!*

Large (5/8” / 14mm. width)—Sized for larger dogs, size fits well in your hands. A good sturdy weight with larger hardware. Screw posts used for durability at the “dog end” of the lead.

Extra Large (3/4” / 17mm. width) —Sized for large, giant, and very strong dogs. Great for people who like a big, sturdy leash. Heavy duty hardware. Screw posts used for durability at the “dog end” of the lead.

    I have the tan 1/2″ wide, 6 foot lenght. LOVE IT. I use it mostly on my elderly Airedale, who is my retired obedience dog. Gentle but gives me control. I also bring it to work at the boarding kennel and use it for moving dogs around. Strong, way easier on the hands than those thin nylon kennel slip leashes, and beautiful to look at.

    This is the best leash ever and I love the larger width for my dog who is a medium sized dog but super strong. I love it and it’s really the best training tool and leash I have ever owned!

    Fast shipping , nice looking , strong slip lead that is made in America. I use to get shelter dogs from their kennels to play area as the collars they have on never fit and they slip them. I had mine made to a custom length as I must keep the big excited or unruly dogs closer to my side so I don’t get pulled.

    Everyone needs this lead around the house. Excellent for quickly moving your dog to the car, run out to get the mail together etc. Perfect for vet visits too, no worries about the dog backing out of a collar. Gorgeous quality leather.
