POLICE DOG type Lead

Following requests from a couple of serving Police Dog handlers I started to make up these leads, as the ones they'd been supplied did not last well in hard use.
Totally handmade & only using solid brass fittings, these leads are built to last.
The normal colour of these is black, though I can supply them in brown if required.
The leather used is made at the tannery specifically for dog leads and as such is guaranteed as unbreakable by them.
(I've had several tries and I'd say that their claim is a safe one to make)

These are available as standard in 1 1/4" width, at £55
They can also can be supplied in a lighter 1" width for £50
Narrower widths for smaller dogs are also available

The photographs below show some views of the lead design and construction.

Set up for "normal" use

Set up for over shoulder hands free carry, or for when a shorter lead is desired for more control
