  • Australian nut
  • Black
  • Burgandy

Dog Slip Lead with a Stop

October 17, 2017

A custom request to fit a stop to one of my handmade dog slip leads. This stop prevents the lead from opening too far when your dog is walking and not pulling against the lead. This means that the collar part of the lead stays in place. Slip leads are a great lead for dogs that either pull back on their leads slipping their collar, dog walkers who walk a variety of different size dog breeds, kennel assistants, and for working dogs that don't need a collar.
Handmade to order using Oak Bark tann...

Additional Leather Loop on a Dog Collar

October 12, 2017

What is the purpose of an additional loop?
The additional leather loop on one of my handmade leather dog collars serves to hold the point of the dog collar tightly against the collar. The extra loop is the one on the right of the picture, after the dee ring. It is stitched in place and blocked square. It make the collar look nicer by not leaving the point flapping around. It can also help if you have more than one dog that like to chew one another's collars.
