Description

A drag leash is a light weight leash that is designed to be used by trainers who want to let their dog drag a leash so they can quickly grab the line to either control the dog or to give a correction. A drag line should not have a loop handle. When dogs drag a leash with a looped handle their hind legs are constantly getting tangled in the loop. This can cause a bad injury if the dog is running and it trips them. I have heard of dogs actually breaking a rear leg when this happened while they were running.

MADE IN THE USA

Leerburg leather products are works of art.

The cow hides used to make all of Leerburg's leather are hand selected for Leerburg before tanning. We need and use the thickest hides available. Our hides go through over 85 steps in a tanning process that takes over a month. There are many types of Latigo leather that are made in Mexico, India, or Pakistan, but none can compare to the quality of Leerburg’s Latigo leather.

Once tanned, our Leerburg Leather is delivered to the Amish family that crafts our leather products right here in Wisconsin. This family has been making all of our leather products for the past 20 years.

These 5 Amish craftsmen hand cut, sew, pop-rivet, and tailor all of our leather products. We have yet to come across another leather product that measures up to our products' quality.

In 2015, we switched from using brass or bronze hardware to stainless steel. Stainless Steel is stronger and lasts a lifetime. You can go and find a cheaper leather product somewhere else, but the quality will not measure up to our products.

100% of Leerburg leather products are made in Wisconsin. We don't use leather from India, Pakistan, or Mexico like 100% of our competitors use.

Notes

Our Amish leather products are made with American-made leather that is stained using natural oils and dyes. There is a possibility that some color may transfer from leather products. We recommend that you use discretion when using this product with lighter colored clothing.

Please keep in mind when ordering that all of our leather leashes are handmade. We try to be as exact as possible with the sizes and colors, but variances do occur.

Just received a 6 foot leather drag lead today from Leerburg, wow it's awesome. The leather is very soft and overall quality is a 10. Can't wait to use on my GSD puppy when she comes home. You will not be disappointed with this leash.

Thanks

We are training for rally and agility and this 3 foot lead is wonderful for that with nothing to snag. Relatively soft leather. Strong. It's being used on a sheltie. I also have the six footer which is great too!

I have several of these that I use for drag lines for foster dogs. They work great! The leather is beautiful and supple- very nice. I am very pleased with this product!

I just received a new 6' drag leash, and there is a marked difference from the 5' drag leash I bought about 5 years ago (width was not specified back in 2009, at least not on my order email). The hardware doesn't look like the same quality of brass (it's lighter and smaller, and the new one looks slightly discolored like it's not real brass); there was no pop-rivet; and the end of the leash looked like it hadn't been finished off, with it looking like the end was cut halfway through a hole (easily enough fixed with some kitchen shears, but still...). Maybe they don't pop-rivet the 3/8 inch leashes, and what I had before was considered 1/2 inch (though the side by side comparison indicates the width is pretty much the same), but nonetheless the difference between the quality of the two leashes was surprising. The leather itself also seems thinner and less flexible. Perhaps that will change with use, but nonetheless, I'm very surprised at the apparent drop in quality. I'll be using the new leash with my small dog rather than my GSD, even though it's longer, since I don't trust this one not to break with a strong dog.
