Dog Leash Extender + Training Tab Design
A growing puppy shouldn’t mean that a dent should grow in your bank account too! Grab a waterproof leash extender to extend the life of your Hands-Free Dog Leash and save a few bucks. Buy the appropriate leash size for when your dog is full-grown, then grab a leash extender to use while your dog is a puppy! You can also use this as a dog training tab in high traffic areas where you need your dog close by.

All of our dog leash clasps swivel and you have the choice of standard bolt snap or trigger snap. We generally recommend trigger snaps, since the spring mechanism in standard bolt snaps can fail at a quicker rate. Clasps are offered in nickel-plated, solid brass, and stainless steel. The rivets or screws will match the clasp choice. If you choose nickel or brass hardware, your product will be finished with rivets. If you choose stainless steel it will be finished with Chicago Screws.
Which Metal Should I Choose?
Nickel will likely rust eventually, stainless steel may eventually rust (but much less common than nickel), and brass does not rust but rather develops a patina. Stainless steel and brass are the best options if you plan on using your leash in water, especially saltwater.
To prevent the hardware from oxidizing it’s best to dry your product ASAP, and to especially rinse off any saltwater. In the case that your hardware rusts or patinas, we recommend searching Google for the best methods to remove the discoloration (methods are different depending on which metal you chose).
To clean your waterproof dog leash extender, take a bucket of water (temperature doesn’t matter), and add some dish soap. Then swish the leash around in the bucket, rinse clean and allow to air dry. For more stubborn areas use a gentle wet cloth and rub with a bit soap and rinse clean.
