These are a wider, shorter lead that is designed to keep the dog close to you while walking or training. They are easier to grip than a normal leash and offer better control when the dog needs to remain close to the handler.


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.


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 and dogs.

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.

Hi Cindy,

I really love our new "traffic leash." I walk (kinda sorta) with MS, so it is really helpful to have my dog close to me. He is a big guy -- his shoulders are where my hand is, and he helps me balance. So it is really nice to have a leash that is short enough that I don't have to wind the leash up when we walk very close together.

In all my videos from Leerburg, I've listened to Ed talking about the quality of the leather in the leashes, but you really need to put your hands on one of the leather leashes to get a full sense of how really good the leather and crafting are! Our new traffic leash from Leerburg is a wonderful leash -- well fashioned and exquisite leather. I can tell it's only going to get better with time and use. Thank you for a really good product!

I can't tell you how happy I am you carry this leash!!! You are the only company that I can find that carries a 15 inch LEATHER leash. Thank you so much!

As always the leather they use for leashes and collars is amazing! But some of the photos of this product display a brass ring on the handle portion of the lead. This was a determining factor for me when deciding which one to purchase. The ring is great to attach to my service dog's harness. I would contact them before ordering this product if that ring is something you desire.
