First, lets talk about our leather choices.
I use only high quality leather; your dog and your hands deserve the best. We purchase Austin and Classic shoulders. This leather is 8-9 ounces in weight making it perfect for rugged durability and heavy wear and tear a dog leash will have. Austin and Classic leathers are soft to the touch with a natural finish and coarse grain look.
For stronger dogs, we can customize your leash with Latigo leather. Latigo leather has exceptional strength and durability, which make it ideal for large breed or reactive dogs. This leather is a thick 10 oz weight - the weight used for horses- so definitely tough enough for a strong dog! This leather is stiff in the beginning , but becomes beautifully smooth after use. Please add $15 to the individual products cost if you choose Latigo.
Every product is personally hand cut, designed and handcrafted by Tara- each and every one. Pride and passion for the right feel is important to her, and each leash shows this. Tara personally tested the different types of leather for strength and durability with her rehabilitation cases at Training By Tara.
