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.

    I love everything your company makes. People stop me all the time to ask me where I got my lead. My service dog and I will be customers forever. This was my first lead, looking forward to trying out the Working Dog Lead.

    The customer service matches the quality of the product and visa versa!
    Nicole was so helpful in selecting the right product & following up with me.
    Everyone comments on the ascetics and design of the leash. I have had other leashes but Bold leashes surpass them in ease of use. I have so many options with the 8-way lead, the service dog leash and I absolutely love the 50 foot leash.

    I recommend Bold Leash Designs to all of my contacts with dogs or service dogs. The leashes have even survived my service dog who loves to chew.

    I plan on buying two more leashes before christmas.

    My dog wears her harness every time we are out and this is a great leash. I use it so its at its shortest and it’s nice because you don’t have a lot of extra leash to hold. Leather and hardware are highest quality as well as the craftsmanship.

  4. Janet Smith (verified owner)

    Like everything from BLD the leather and craftsmanship are beautiful. This lead is just the right length for guide/service work. It’s perfect.

    I have the service dog lead in black leather, large size. It works great for us; you can use the snaps and ring to set it to various lengths. Most often, I use it as a hands-free leash; the leash loops over my belt and I click the snap onto the ring to keep it on my belt while the snap at the far end attaches to Shep. That means I can hold Shep’s harness handle in one hand and my cane in the other, but Shep is still attached to me with the leash and it gives him some freedom to move a couple of steps away in case he needs to pee, :) Richard

    Gorgeous leash, very comfortable on the hands and looks awesome.
