Hey Mighty Paw fam, Barbara here to introduce you to our beautiful new Braided Leather Dog Leash!
As a matter of fact, we added two different design options to our premium leather collection, and we're equally proud of both.
The first one is a DELUXE version that comes with all the bells and whistles. The second one is a STANDARD version with a minimalistic design approach.
In this blog post, I'll show you the individual features and differences so you can decide which option may work better for you and your pup.
Walk Your Dog In Style With Mighty Paw's Braided Leather Dog Leash
Before I dive into the differences between the deluxe and the standard braided leather leashes, let's look at the features that form the classic base for both:
- 100% genuine, durable leather
- Heavy duty metal leash clasps
- Braided top and bottom
- 360° swivel attachment
- Leash length: 6’
- Thickness: 4mm
- Width: 5/8”
**Did you know? Leather leashes are naturally stronger than nylon leashes.**
Mighty Paw Braided Leather Leash - Deluxe
Now that we've covered the basics, here's what sets our deluxe version apart from the standard version:
- Aviation aluminum carabiner
- Super soft padded handle
- Decorative handle stitching
The carabiner clip on the deluxe version of our leash withstands 850lbs of pulling force.
The padded handle with its decorative stitching does not only look very luxurious, it's also super soft and comfortable to hold.
So next time your pup makes a sudden movement on the leash you didn't anticipate, your hands will thank us!
Combined, both features make it easy and comfortable to manage your powerful leash clowns!
They're particularly helpful when you're working on restraining your dog reactive pup or when you're trying to convince your squirrel crazy guy NOT to give chase...that would be the case with my pup Wally!!
As a matter of fact, his hunting genes show in his love for chasing anything that's small and moves fast. He really doesn't care if it's a cat, rabbit, mouse or a squirrel - if any of them happen to move past us on our walks and hikes, he's ready to sprint after them.
So if your pup's like Wally, treat yourself and your hands to this leash!!
PRICE INFORMATION: The standard version of our Braided Leather Dog Leash currently retails for $29.99.
Mighty Paw Braided Leather Leash - Standard
Moving on to our standard version!
Besides the basics that we already covered, here's what you'll find on this leash:
- Good grip leather handle
- Metal clasp
- Plain handle
The leather handle on this particular leash does not feature additional padding on the inside. But even without it, you still have a comfortable, good grip experience.
The clasp on the standard version is a metal clasp that withstands 385lbs of pulling force. That said, it's a really good option for active dogs who aren't stubborn pullers.
Staying with the minimalistic design, there's no decorative stitching detail on the handle.
PRICE INFORMATION: The standard version of our Braided Leather Dog Leash currently retails for $22.99.
How To Clean Your Braided Leather Dog Leash
In order for leather leashes (& collars!) to keep looking their best throughout the years, you should treat them with a leather conditioner or saddle soap every so often.
If your leather leash gets wet, wipe it down with a soft cloth and then treat it with the conditioner or soap.
Let it dry and you'll be ready to head out on more adventures with your furry best friend(s) in no time!
Walk Your Dog In Style With Mighty Paw's Braided Leather Dog Leash: Bottom Line
At 6' in length, our Braided Leather Dog Leash is perfect for everyday adventures with your pup. That's also the length that most dog trainers recommend to teach your pup polite leash manners on!
The braided details at the top and bottom of the leash don't just add an elegant touch, they also make this leather leash even stronger, which means you'll easily be able to control your pup on leash when they act up.
Obviously, the padded handle on the deluxe version is more comfortable than the plain leather one on the standard version. But even that one won't hurt your hands if your pup decides to test your patience and the strength of the leash!
Remember that the aviation aluminum carabiner on the deluxe version can handle 850lbs of pulling force vs 385lbs for the metal clip on the standard version.
The price difference between the two leashes is currently $7.00.
