Would you like to add a nameplate?

A heavy duty solid brass chain lead with leather handle. Our 1" (25mm) wide brass and leather dog lead is approximately 72cm end to end and is well suited to medium to large breeds. 

Handmade using Italian vegetable-tanned leather and rust-proof solid brass hardware. We round, smooth and seal the edges of the leather lead by hand, for your comfort.

Customisation Options

Leather - your choice of 11 colours in premium Italian veg-tan leather.

Nameplate - if you would like a nameplate added, your dog's details will be hand-stamped and clearly seen on the solid brass or stainless steel nameplate. The standard placement of the nameplate is directly above the two rivets that attach the chain to the leather. However, if you would like a different placement just let us know - we can attach it wherever you like.

Is this suitable for your pet?

We recommend using a specialty lead when attached to a tie-out and keeping this leather dog lead for walks. While our leads are extremely sturdy, and will withstand forceful tugging, there are determined dogs out there for which any lead is no match!


The vegetable-tanned leather has been selected for its strength and beauty - as it ages it will soften and develop a unique, natural patina, whilst remaining extremely strong to withstand harsh and demanding conditions. It has been dyed all the way through with non-toxic water dyes.

Cast from solid brass, our hardware has been selected for maximum strength and to ensure our products remain rust-free for life. All hardware is kept securely in place with strong solid brass rivets.

A solid brass nameplate, attached securely to the collar using solid brass rivets.

As our leads are entirely handmade by us, marks from the tooling process and minor inconsistencies in the stamping will occur. Neither will detract from the quality and beauty of the lead, in fact we think this adds to the charm of choosing a handmade, unique product rather than something that has been mass-produced.


The width of the leather is 1". The length of the lead from the tip of the trigger clip to the top of the handle is approximately 72cm. The leather is 2.8-3mm thick.

70 x 16mm - up to 3 lines of information in 3mm text.

Sizing Guide

This lead comes in the 1" width only.

Care Guide

With appropriate care, this leather lead should last your dog many years.

Leather is a natural material and it can display natural marking and colour variations. Over time, the leather will soften with the oils from your hand, developing a natural patina. With a bit of love and care, leather ages gracefully! Give it the occasional clean and recondition with leather dressing (we make one!), and it will reward you with many years of service. Avoid getting it saturated with water as this can cause the leather to become brittle and more likely to break. If your leather dog lead does get wet, allow it to dry naturally and then recondition with a good quality leather dressing.

Due to the nature of the product, please expect some wear and tear. Scuff marks, surface scratches and colour fading are completely normal - how quickly these changes occur depends entirely on the environment in which it is used.

Brass will naturally dull and tarnish over time. You can leave it to develop a beautiful, natural patina or you can bring yours back to a beautiful sheen by polishing with brass cleaner. If the hardware is exposed to salt water, rinse well in fresh water.

As with all dog gear, check leather and hardware for signs of weakness. If rivets need replacing, contact us.
