This slim 6mm diameter slip lead is small enough to slip into a pocket, but at the same time it produces a definite checking action and so is great for reinforcing heel work; if the dog pulls, the slip tightens around the dogs neck, but as soon as he walks nicely to heel, the slip loosens off and becomes comfortable again. The handle, leash and collar are in one piece, so the dog can't slip the leash, but when it is removed there's no annoying collar.
Firedog make their slip leads by hand from the finest quality extra-durable polyamide climbing rope. As an added feature, the collar part is limited by an adjustable reindeer antler stop, which comes in very useful if you need to tie the dog up. The eyelet through which the leash 'slips' is made from stainless steel for maximum durability.
This lead is 130cm long, which is a good 'average' lead length and can be used for just one dog, but it's still long enough if you're walking two dogs together. This lead is also available in a shorter 110cm length (great if you like a nice short lead, and/or you're only walking one dog) and a longer 150cm length (useful for walking multiple dogs at once or if you just like a longer lead!)
