Leather leashes have always been my favorite type of leash when walking our dogs. A leather leash was recommended by our trainer over 20 years ago, and we haven’t had to replace it until now. Leather is super comfortable in your hand, it’s soft, flexible and won’t cut into your hand like a nylon leash will, especially if you have a dog that pulls.
I purchased this Leatherberg leather leash on Amazon last month because I wanted an extra leash to use with our foster dogs. It’s a 6’ x ¾” high-quality, soft, all natural leather leash. It is double-stitched with a metal rivet on each end of the leash, and has the basic clasp to hook onto your dogs collar.
We had two leather leashes (of a different brand) for over 20 years. Last weekend, we took a canoe trip on the Kickapoo River with our dogs. Our dogs had a blast swimming next to the canoe, but Bear decided he wanted back in the canoe and ended up tipping over the canoe! We didn’t realize until the end of our trip that we had lost one of our leashes in that fun moment. But it gave me the perfect opportunity to use our new Leatherberg leash.
Our other leather leash is still in great condition, with the exception of the stitching on the handle has come undone. I am sure we can bring it to a leather shop and have it sewn, but just haven’t had the time to do it.
I’m hoping that since the Leatherberg leash has the double stitching plus rivets, we won’t have the issue of the handle coming apart again.
Leatherberg also offers a lifetime 100% money back guarantee, so how can you go wrong! You can get more information on their website at www.leatherberg.com.
This leather leash is perfect for dogs from 20 lbs to 120+ lbs. It is lightweight so you won’t feel like you are lugging around a heavy leash with a smaller dog. Yet it’s sturdy enough to withstand a big, strong pulling dog. It is important to note that this leash is not chew-proof, so do not allow your dog to chew on it or be alone with the leash.
I’ve been walking our dogs for the last week with the Leatherberg leash on one dog and our old leash on the other dog. I’ve noticed the new Leatherberg leash is slightly lighter weight, even softer, and I really love the feel of it. I will definitely be ordering one more leash from Leatherberg!
