Discover The Best Leather Dog Leash for Your Pooch | The Definitive Guide 2018


Leather Dog Leash Guide

Leather is a softer material than the common nylon counterparts. The feel of pulling on leather as opposed to a tight grip on a piece of nylon is tangible. Friction is greatly reduced in leather. Have you ever had a rug burn? Synthetic materials will do that to you.

We like leather because it tends to last a very long time. Unlike fabric it doesn’t absorb dirt, there is no need to wash it. A nice leather leash doesn’t clash with any collar types, which is definitely a benefit for us. 

Some benefits of leather dog leash material include:

Types of leather dog leashes

Braided Leather Dog Leash

The Soft Touch Collars Leather Braided Dog Leash is our top choice in this category. We LOVE lifetime guarantees.

Despite the interwoven appearance, you may be surprised to find out that it’s one piece of leather! A skilled tradesman places precise cuts and interweaves the piece to make a braided design that ends up looking stylish. We really like the look and the technique that goes into creating it. 

Not only will they replace it for life, it also has a great build quality. Burnished edges mean there are no leather fibers to scrape against your hand. Coupled with padded handles,customers love this leash. With over 650 reviews and 4.5 stars on Amazon, it’s our winner. There are 5 variations of colors and 3 variations of lengths. These are 4 ft x 1/2 inch, 6 ft x 1/2 inch and 6 ft x 3/4ths of an inch. The last one is better suited for larger dogs.

Rolled Leather Dog Leash

Commonly using two or more pieces of leather stitched together, this gives the dog leash a round circumference. The stitching is the most important aspect of this design, because poor quality stiches could mean it won’t have a long shelf life. We do like the look though.

Leather Dog Leash Sizes

We found three good options for the most common sizes of dog leashes. All the way from 4ft to 10ft!

6 foot leather dog leash

Leerberg sells a highly touted 6 foot black dog leash. Handmade by the Amish with stainless steel rivets popped into place.  That means a secure connection that is molded around the metal, those things are staying put for sure. Thick stitching that didn’t pop straight off some assembly line. This is definitely our top pick for leashes of this size. 

This also tops the list for black dog leashes for us.
