The Big Dog Lead ™

Beyond the basic short traffic lead, this functional leash adjusts to 2 lengths for versatility. Use it extended for a three-foot lead (just the right length for large dogs), or shortens to an 20″ traffic lead. This leash has special hardware to make it multi-functional. You can also use this leash for DUAL CONTROL by attaching one end to the dog’s regular collar, and the other to a head collar or training collar.

Features a regular braided loop handle. There’s a bolt snap on the handle and a fixed ring for shortening the leash.

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.

Crafted with a braided handle and screw posts at the “dog end” of the lead for 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 (silver color).


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

    Exceeded my expectations! Comfortable in my hand. Enables me to easily walk two or three puppies concurrently! Outstanding Quality! Love the fact I can modify length from 3′ to 20″ traffic lead. I’m sure I’ll be purchasing other items from Katrina and Bold lead in the future as my puppies grow. Thank you Katrina and your awesome team. Melita

    I use this leash for my service dog. I’m a full time wheelchair user and this leash is perfect for my working dog! It’s just the right length to use in all situations and when we need a “hurry” break I can give her a little bit more space. It has held up very well to my all day everyday use. I live in New England and it has been used in all types of weather. Love it!!
