Slip Lead Design
The Slip Lead is the perfect waterproof leash for on-the-go dog owners. 4′-8′ length options mean you can choose the right length for your specific needs.
Please note the slip lead length options (4′-8′) listed are measured from the top of the handle to the bottom of the leash at the smallest loop size (2″). When deciding the proper slip lead length make sure to account for both your dog’s neck size AND the actual leash you need. For example, if my dog’s neck is 12″ and I want a 4′ total leash length I will need to choose a 5′ slip lead length.
A shorter lead works well for large dog breeds or as a dog training leash, while a longer lead is great for small dog breeds or casual walks.
Slip leads are designed with an o-ring that forms an adjustable loop that acts like a built in collar. An adjustable stopper also prevents the lead from loosening too much.

Which Metal Should I Choose?
Both stainless steel and solid brass are very durable and make long-lasting options! Stainless steel is rust-resistant and classic silver color. It is possible for stainless steel to rust, but much less than nickel and it can be cleaned more easily. Brass does not rust but does develop a patina over time. Stainless steel and brass can both be used in the water.
Even though stainless steel and brass are durable, it’s still best to prevent the hardware from oxidizing. To do this make sure to dry your product ASAP, and 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.
To clean your lead, take a bucket of water (temperature doesn’t matter), and add some dish soap. Then swish the lead 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.
