Learn to Lead Leashes are custom made of double braided, high quality rope, similar to climbing rope. Their strong inner core and woven outer sheath make them strong and durable. Our 42" and 66" leashes come with a safety back-up for extra security.
Learn to Lead Leashes were designed to help you gain better control of your dogs on a walk. When you twist the slip lead into a figure 8 and adjust it over your dog’s muzzle, it will have a similar effect to a halter on a horse. This “power loop” will help your dog achieve a “chilled out” state of mind, allowing you to gain greater control on your walks. Clip the backup to your dog’s flat collar for additional security.
We recommend the 66” leash if you’re planning on using the figure 8, as this will give you the added length needed to create the power loop.
Learn to Lead Leashes can also be used as a simple slip lead. Simply place the loop slip end around you dog’s neck and position the leather keeper to the back of the neck, securely but not too tight.
If you’re using the leash as a basic slip lead, you may use either the 66” or the 42” length. It’s a matter of preference!
