So, what is a traffic lead? A traffic lead is a traditional lead with an additional handle added at the bottom of the lead that allows you to keep your pup close in high-traffic situations.
If adventure is your pups middle name, you are sure to fall in love with our adventure-ready line of waterproof collars and leads that your dog will love! And, what is better than a gorgeous, low maintenance collar and leash?
Every piece in this line is hand crafted from coated webbing that is durable and easy to clean. It even stays flexible in cold weather! This amazing webbing is soft and has the appearance of leather but is more durable, cleanable, stronger and easier to maintain than leather. It's also:
-stink-resistant **NOT resistant to skunk smell.
-stronger than nylon and leather
-cleanable with soap and water
You'll start by choosing from our constantly growing color choices for your leash! You'll also choose your width, leash length and hardware. This particular leash comes standard with a d-ring at the end of the handle so that you can easily carry keys, waste bags, etc. on your many adventures.
Both the regular handle and the traffic handle are approximately 8" long and the openings are approximately a 12" circle.
Choose from your choice of width (for most dogs, we highly recommend going with the 5/8" or 3/4" width in the standard weight - 1" and super heavy weight is recommended only for large breed dogs):
**NOTE: the length of the lead does NOT include the length of the snap hook in the total length. The total length is the length of the biothane material, only, not including the snap hook.
Choose from your choice of snap hook color and style:
-Stainless Steel Bolt Snap
-Stainless Steel Trigger Snap
-Solid Brass Bolt Snap
-Solid Brass Trigger Snap
-Aluminum Auto Locking Carabiner (comes with black hardware)
Please scroll through the pictures to see all available collar color choices (note: if a color does not show up in the drop down list, it is likely sold out).
Standard vs. Super Heavy:
The choice between purchasing the standard thickness leash and the super heavy thickness leash is personal preference. We DO NOT recommend the super heavy weight material for small dogs due to the additional bulk. Both thicknesses have a break strength of 750-1,000 pounds. The standard thickness material is approximately 0.1" thick and the super heavy thickness material is approximately 0.15" thick.
Engraved Name Plate:
Engraved name plates are available at an additional cost and attach to your new leash on the front side just below the handle using the same strong rivets we use to make the collars and leads.
Your name plate will come in the same color hardware that you choose and will come attached to your leash.
You can choose up to 3 lines of text. Please note, the more text you choose, the smaller the lettering will be. We recommend no more than about 15-18 characters per line.
• Each leash is handmade from the very beginning to end; you may notice a slight variation in length from one leash to the next
• Hand wash your leash and collar with soap & water. If your leash or collar has been exposed to an especially stinky substance, you may wipe down with a diluted 10% bleach solution (1 part to 9 parts water) or wipe down with vinegar to help neutralize odors.
It is very important to note that our long lines are not designed to be used as tear for a "tie out." Damage caused by using any of our collars or leads to tether a dog are non repairable. We also do not recommend tethering a dog due to the excessive risk of injury, damage and loss. If you are planning to tie your dog to a tie out or an outdoor line, please be sure to purchase items from a manufacturer that designs products specifically for this purpose.
