Designer Show Leads

BullieShrink Designs Designer Show Leads are 4-plait kangaroo leather adorned with combinations of one-of-a-kind Lampwork or Murano glass beads by a variety of exceptionally talented artisans.   Other beads can include  Swarovski crystals are and a variety of accent beads.

Kangaroo leather is considered the strongest available.   Kangaroo leather is naturally soft, however I bevel and conditioned the leather for added comfort.  To increase strength and reduce stretching, the leather is beveled and set with additional strength and security from a core of doubled “Brutally Strong” 200 pound shark line.

Show Leads typically range in length from 20” to 36″; however custom leads of different lengths and handle size are always available.  I typically have a loop on the end to securely attach to the dog’s collar with clasps available upon request.  Of course, custom designs may have clasps attached as desired.
