Traditional Leather Dog Lead: in 1″ XXL size! 

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, flexible, and only improves with age. All edges are beveled for a smooth feel. Top quality hardware assures strength and durability. Constructed with solid brass screw posts for extra durability. Sorry, we can’t do braids with this Heavy Duty leather! –NO stitching to wear our or cheap rivets to fail. We believe so strongly in the quality of our work, we offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY.

Recommended only for dogs over 60 pounds.

XXL (1″ / 25.4 mm) — A big-fat-extra-wide leash only recommended for people who like a lot of leash in their hand and/or giant dogs.

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 to a lovely chestnut brown.

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.

Choose the length:

From 2-6 feet.


Bolt snaps, as shown, are the most reliable hardware we’ve found for this XXL leash. Choose solid brass or stainless steel.

Our exclusive swivel Shackle Snap is now available! See details here. 

Custom Options:

You can request an o-ring on the handle if you like.

Need a slip-collar lead? Request a loose o-ring on the length of the leash, and you’ll have a grab-n-go collar leash combo. Simply clip the snap to the o-ring. Adjustment fob included.

(Other modifications are limited on this width of leash.)
