lead is a personal choice but usually the smaller the dog
the longer the lead. The most popular length of slip lead
is 1.5mt (5') in 4, 6, 8 and 10mm and our 12mm 1.2m (4') and
1.7m (5'7") lengths.

for years but have added it to our list after a customer gave
us some fantastic feedback, saying it was now a joy to take
her dog for a walk. See our code 029 which is a 2m slip lead
