Tracking and Hunting Leashes

We now make our own tracking/trailing leads, after 20 years of trial and error and general disatisfaction with the usual products on the market.
Leads are made to order, to any length, and are suitable for bloodhound tracking, trailing or for blood tracking with deerstalking dogs such as Teckels, Bavarian Mountain Hounds and HPR breeds.
Our leads are made from the revolutionary material called biothane, and have marine grade stainless steel fittings.
I choose to use the hunting "blaze orange" or bright cerise colour with my bloodhounds and my blood tracking HWV, simply because Ive lost count of the number of leads Ive put down and lost in the undergrowth, however its available in many other colours. We do a thin light weight biothans for smaller breeds like Teckels and bavarians, with heavy duty ones for the large hounds and GSDs etc.
Among the many advantages of this material , is that it doesnt snag on brambles or wire, it runs effortlessly through undergrowth, doesnt catch around hounds legs like webbing, and is grippy in all weathers. Being rot proof and easily cleaned with a quick wipe, it remains like new for many many years.
If you are interested in seeing the leads I can bring samples to shows/trials, so just ask. Leads are priced by the metre, and are made to order.
We do not make our own harnesses but we do strongly recommend Geoff at Canine Outfitters for harness making to the highest standard.
