There are Three types of dog lead in the Doodlebone range. The Original is a strong, durable dog lead that's comfortable and designed to match the Originals Collar range. It uses the same durable Polyester webbing and reinforced stitching. The new Originals Slip Lead and Originals Rope Leads are identical apart from how you attach it to your dog. The Rope lead has a conventional clip, so very straight forward. The Slip lead slips over the dog’s head and has a safety stopper, both made with a nylon outer around a terrifically tough inner core for strength.
