|Bob_McBob||Hooking the leash to itself was the big one I had forgotten. It sounds like I won't miss the ring for my training purposes. I don't mind them when they're light and fixed in place, but a heavy ring loose on the handle is pretty annoying if you don't actually use it.|

|volcano||mine has a big ring on the handle so you can loop it through itself and use it as a slip lead. Comes in handy when I forget to put her collar on.|

Metal ring on leather leash handle?
Most leather leashes I've used have a round or d ring in the braid, handle, etc. I gather people like to either tie on a poop bag or use it to somehow shorten the leash or attach a second line in some situations. My favourite cheap everyday 4' leather training leash has a loose ring I've never used in the handle that makes a huge racket when it's dragged or hits the floor, and occasionally gives me a good whack when the leash snaps around. Is there some extremely important mystery use for this ring I am going to discover the next day if I cut it off?
