Bold Lead Designs’ two position Service/ Guide lead is available in three lengths to suit your needs. 

The simplified design makes this leash lightweight and easy to use. It has a clip on both ends and two fixed rings so you can use this leash in multiple ways. One ring is 24″ from the end to fashion the handle portion of the lead, the second ring is at the “dog end” so the leash can be made shorter.

We designed this leash for use with a dog in harness, but its convenient features make it a great every day leash for walks, training, etc.

The longer 52 inch length is just right for leisurely walks, relaxing, or relieving. The short position is 34 inches long ideal for use with a guide harness handle. This versatile leash also can be used as a tie down by looping around a post.

This is the best quality leash you will find anywhere. We use a unique longer braid technique to make our guide dog leash; 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 stainless steel hardware (silver color) assures strength and durability. Solid brass hardware available upon request. We believe so strongly in the quality of our work, we offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

Select Material:

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. Crafted with a special braid pattern for reliability (no rivets or stitching to wear out).

Our lovely BLACK LATIGO leather 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. Crafted with a special braid pattern for reliability (no rivets or stitching to wear out).

Brahma Soft-Grip material 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. Easy to clean: Just wipe clean with soap and water. Crafted with screw posts to fasten the handle and hardware. Available in classic and bright colors.

Standard premium stainless steel bolt snaps are shown; they are the highest quality and most reliable snaps we’ve found. Special hardware or modification is available by request.

14 reviews for BLD’s Guide Dog Lead (2-position double-ended leash)

  1. Jeanene (verified owner)

    This is my go to lead when working my service dog in harness. The length is absolutely perfect (the guide length) for both working and general walking. I love the leather, even with my lead only being 1/2 inch it’s still plenty sturdy enough for walking unruly shepherd pups. I’ve used this lead for everything from dogs to less ‘approved’ things as hauling things up and down hills.

  2. Dana

    By far, the guide dog leash is my favorite leash ever. I have 2, one in tan and one black, and they are so versatile and supple and I know they will last us a lifetime. Super strong even on the narrower widths (I have tiny hands and prefer the 1/2″ leash even for my 115 lb Bernese)

    No other leash will do for me!

  3. Mechelle Lech

    I love my guide dog lead. It’s a good length and very soft on the hands. It has broken in well.

    I brought this leash about two years ago and I use it every day still today. Great leash, perfect length, excellent quality. Will recommend.

  5. aliceherbert@verizon.net

    I am so happy that a reasonable priced leather works(collar, Leash etc.) in now available. I am training a bullmastiff for service dog work and The nylon leashes cut my hands. Say Hi to Smootchie the wonder dog.

    I love, love LOVE the service dog leash I recently purchased. It’s long enough for me to stand and put my dog in a down without having to take it off my shoulder. I also use it on the shortest position for extra control as she’s learning to run with my bicycle attachment. The leather is heavy and will soften up nicely and last for years, and the hardware is substantial. Glad I found your site!!
