    DefaultGood leather leash suggestions

    I'm not positive yet, but I'm thinking I want to invest in a good leather leash for each of the girls. Preferably 6'. If anyone has suggestions about a website or even one at petsmart or a place like that they like I'd love to hear about it!

    I've never used a leather leash before, but I've heard several pepole on here talk about them and how they last a lifetime so I think it would be a good investment.

    Also do you reccomend the flat leather leashes or the braided ones? I've also seen where they are only braided by the handle and the clip of the leash.

    The only suggestion I have is that if you are expecting to do any heeling corrections while using the leather leash, get a wider one. *The thin one I have really hurts my hand, and I think if it were fatter, it would be better. *I could be way wrong, and others with more experience may correct me. * *That's just how it seems to me....

    The leashes Laura/Labby suggested are what we use - the Leather training leash on that page to be exact. There is nothing better than a quality leather leash - they last forever, get softer as they age, give great control, have some resilency if you require a leash "pop". The price is real good on those as well.

    Look especially at the "harness leather" leashes in the link Laura posted. They're the toughest and nicest.

    J&J is THE best. The braids (v. a rivet that can pop) wear like iron and never let go. And the leather only gets more supple w/age. I LOVE my leash.

    Watch the width - When you close your fingers, you should be able to do so comfortably, w/no leash 'showing' on either side of your hand. It needs to completely fit in your palm, covered by your fingers.....

    Leather leashes only last until your dog eats them

    I use this one for my previous Rottie for 10 yrs and now for Murray for the past 3 yrs. It's braided at both ends, no rivets. High quality, inexpensive, and lasts forever. Plus...you don't have to pay shipping. Just walk into Petsmart and pick it up. ;D
