About the Atlas Leash:

Five O-rings are strategically placed along the length of this leash to offer the most configurations possible. This means that you can take the snap at either end of the leash and clip it to any of the O-rings to make your leash nearly any length you need! “Double Up” the leash by clipping TWO rings at once for even more variations. The adjustable-ring-fob allows the leash to be worn as a belt and it can be adjusted to fit any size person or dog! Try it. We think you’ll love it.

About the Atlas Leash Design:

Jennifer Kolar, founding board member of Atlas Assistance Dogs , approached Katrina with ideas to make a better leash. Jennifer asked if the BLD’s famous 8-Way Lead could have a few more options, including over-the-shoulder and around-the-waist options AND have both a longer and shorter leash for different activities. The goal was simple: one leash that could be used for training, working, playing, and relieving that could fit almost any size dog or person. The resulting leash was so amazing that we at BLD knew it would quickly become a customer favorite. We’ve partnered up to offer this special edition leash design to the world.

About Atlas Assistance Dogs®

Atlas Assistance Dogs is a 501(c)(3) non-profit disability rights organization that helps people who would benefit from a service dog take control of their own solution to live more independently. This ambitious organization is expanding the possibilities for assistance dog training by offering a comprehensive online training program for professional dog trainers and by supporting dog/handler teams with skilled Team Facilitators in as many locations as possible across the US.

Atlas Assistance Dogs’ model: 

Atlas supports the individual who wants to and is able to be an active part of training their own dog. Our Atlas Team Facilitators are skilled volunteers who assist clients who are working to train their own service dog, either entirely on their own or with a trainer. The facilitators guide the team (client and their dog) through their final six or more months of training, working with them to refine the dog’s performance, develop the dog’s skills in mitigating the client’s disability, and prepare the team to pass our public access test and work with confidence in all settings they frequent.

We are also working to address a critical shortage of qualified service dog trainers through a comprehensive online program designed to prepare experienced dog trainers to train service dogs and work with people with a wide range of disabilities. Our courses provide training related to dogs, working with people with disabilities, and training for skills to mitigate the client’s disability.”

BLD’s founder, owner, and designer Katrina Boldry has served on Atlas Assistance Dogs’ board of directors. Additionally, Katrina volunteers on several committees working on Atlas’ curriculum development. She is sharing content related to best practices for health and fitness of service dogs, as well as her knowledge and experience with specialized equipment including leashes for people in wheelchairs and mobility/balance dogs. She is also ensuring that the true challenges of facing a disability while working with a dog are acknowledged as a part of the training and certification process. Katrina is on a personal mission to share her unique knowledge regarding specialized canine equipment and believes this is just one way to attain that goal.

This special offer Atlas Leash is available in 9/16″ wide Black Latigo leather and comes with nickel plated (silver colored) hardware. No hardware modifications are available for these leads.

About our leather:

Our lovely BLACK LATIGO leather is solid black and cut from select USA hides. Superior in quality and texture, it is incredibly durable yet very flexible. This leather feels great from the start and will simply get better with age.

Premium Leather:

Leather care is easy! Don’t worry too much, and don’t be afraid to use your items — we promise leather is incredibly resilient, and regular weather won’t hurt it. If you think your item looks dirty, dry, or just need a little extra love, pouring a little leather conditioner on a cloth, and rubbing it in like lotion will usually do the trick. Baths and a jaunt in the river are just fine, but you might want to offer a little conditioner to your products afterwards. Saltwater can be harsh, so after a visit to the ocean, a good rinse in fresh water and proper conditioning will help preserve and protect your treasured leash or collar. See our Leather Care page for more specific information.

Brahma Soft-Grip—a vegan leather alternative:

Brahma Soft-Grip is constructed with webbing on the inside and a durable, non-tacky PVC coating on the outside. Easy to care for: just wipe clean with soap and water. Brahma is always assembled with screw posts for durability. This material is heavier than leather (in a comparable width), and does not soften over time the way leather does. Black is the most popular color for wheelchair leashes, but assorted bright and classic colors are also available. Just ask for available color choices!
