Re: Leash?

I use a leather leash. I love the leather leash I have for Ivy.
If it gets dirty/muddy I just wipe it off. I use it all year round in all weather- snow, rain, sleet, hail, sun etc...

Re: Leash?

I have a nylon right now. At some point I'd like to get a leather, as it does get dirty and you can't just wipe it off.

Re: Leash?

I have all types but for letting them go potty we use no leash, but for taking to a vet I have a 2 handle nylon leash very strong, dog shows I have a soft leather leash and my husband uses a 35 ft retractable which we have had for 6 years now

Re: Leash?

did horses for years - won't own nylon equipment for horses or for dogs...nylon burns the hands, will not break if under stress ( have known of horses to break necks and die!)

Leather for all leads, beeta for long lines

Re: Leash?

What I love of leather leashes is that any other material, the longer you use it, the worst it looks and feels. With leather, the longer you use them they become softer and as if made for you.

Re: Leash?

I use a leather leash. It's made locally by a guy that makes reins/bridles and such for horses. They come already soft, no need to work the stiffness out, which I love.

I also have a Flexi, but that is only used for outside bathroom breaks. No fenced yard.
