Easy Grip Lead ™ a hand braided leather dog leash. 

We have improved upon the basic leather lead by adding braided grip-points along the length of the leash. No longer will the leash slide through your hands. Easy-Grip points are even better than fully braided leashes because the braided sections act as a “stop” and provide a comfortable handhold. Perfect for people with limited strength in their hands, including people with disabilities, arthritis, post-polio syndrome, injuries, etc.

Our unique, easy to handle lead is custom made by our artisans in our own workshop. Includes our famous lifetime warranty. Choose the leather, width, and length. Braided grips are approx. 9” apart.

Made to order! Allow 7-10 business days for creation.

Easy Grip Lead ™ a hand braided leather dog leash. 

Our unique, easy to handle lead is custom made to order in your choice of color and length! The braids are approx. 9” apart.

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 assures strength and durability. We believe so strongly in the quality of our work, we offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

NOTE: this leash is very specialized and is a bit bulkier than a traditional leash due to the braided grips. Custom made to order, allow approx. 5-7 days.

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 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.


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


Standard bolt snaps are shown. Special hardware or modification is available by request.

6 reviews for Easy Grip Lead™ the best custom braided leather dog leash

  1. Cynthia Aldridge (verified owner)

    This lead is great! I use it for taking my dog for walks in the city – it is easy to grip braided areas to shorten the leash for greater control. It is also easy to hook around my waist when I go sheep herding. I showed it to my trainers wife and she suggested it would also be great once agility trials start again because you can hook around your waist during the runs instead of having leash runner’s handle your leash. I also ordered two collars. All really nice quality and I ordered on Friday and received on Tuesday. I am ordering another one for my other dog.

    I got this lead to use with my search and rescue dog–nice to have easy areas to grip and the leash is beautifully made with small snap. I highly recommend this lead as a nice option especially on rainy days when a smooth lead might be quite slick to handle!

    My family loves the leather medium with the perfect pace halter. It is light weight, soft, easy to grip, high quality, attractive leather. It is much more comfortable in your hands than a fabric or woven leash that can give rope burn easily.

    I bought this leash as a gift for my daughter and her dog. It is just the right size and looks so good on Maui! We all call this her fashion leash as it’s so much better looking than her everyday walk to the potty area in her complex!

    This lead should be at the top of the page, because it is the BEST. As with all Bold leads, the craftsmanship and the quality of the leather is amazing. Soft and supple and does not have that icky oily feel that some leashes have. (Some leash makers think they can just oil the heck out of a lesser quality leather to make it supple) The multiple braided “stops” are a god send. SO easy to adjust your grip and lengthen/shorten where you hold it. If you have a dog that’s a surprise lunger (“look a squirrel!!”) you will never lose your grip again. I’ve owned my leash over a year and it is my #1 leash.

    This lead is amazing and so is the maker! I found this lead when searching for something easier on my hands. When I got it in the mail, I was happily surprised at how soft the leather is and the good feel in my hands. The placement on the braids are just right for the distance between you and your dog and they are not rough on your hands. This lead is very high quality made and still looks brand new even though my service dog has put it through a lot of love and abuse! I would buy this again in a heart beat but the one I have now will last for the rest of my lifetime :)
