Black Dog Wears' Smart Lead Range
Sizes- Mini, Small & Regular sizes - for Tethering dogs from 1kg up to 26 kg.
Smart Leads are one of those "Why hasn't anyone thought of that before" designs.
A quality lead for everyday use, with the added advantage of being length adjustable and enabling you to securely tether your dog to a tree or pole without unclipping the lead from your dog, or tying knots in it.
The rated strength is related to the breaking strain of the Plastic Buckle in the handle when used for tethering. In normal walking the lead is substantially stronger, but the rated strength is due to the plastic buckle being the least strong component.
Care should always be exercised when tethering a dog, to make sure the dog is safe and supervised, that pathways are not restricted by the tethered dog (not all people are comfortable near dogs) and keep in mind that an agitated dog could easily chew through any lead to escape.
(for tethering larger dogs go to our NEW Double-Ended 1.5m Stainless Steel Lead)
Length Adjustable 0.8 to 1.5 Metres with buckle- 12, 20 or 25mm wide webbing - with corresponding sized snaphook.
Smart Leads are rated for tethering strength - based on the breaking strain of the buckle in the handle. The Lead is significantly stonger when the buckle is not in use.

Ive used this (same) lead for over 10 years. It was used for 2 dogs with a joiner for several years (50kg) now i use it for my one dog (22kg). Its still pretty good but would like another as the clip is starting to slip. Love the clip on the handle for easy tying up when running into a store. Would recommend for sure.
I have had two of these leads (one for each dog) and they have lasted for over 4 years (2 walks a day with 20-25kg dogs)!!! The clip at the handle is very convenient as it is the perfect diameter for putting around signposts. I always recommend these due to durability and convenience.
