THE TETHERLEADS STORY
We rarely go anywhere without our springer dog, and as we like to travel a fair bit, she’s become a well-travelled pooch.
When we travel, we love to sample the best of the local culinary action, be that in the pub, inn, restaurant or café – and this is when our Springer can truly live up to her name. She doesn’t mind being secured but it has to be on her terms.
Inconveniently and uncomfortably, we used to end up with the lead wrapped around our ankles or wrists (have you ever tried eating with a canine strapped to your arm?) or, slipped with little confidence, under a chair leg.
After trying many leads and many methods, we decided to take matters into our own hands.
Our experiences had shown us that we needed a lead with a method of being attached swiftly and securely to a wide range of fixtures.
It would also need to be quickly adjusted for length depending on the location.
We trialled a number of different samples and arrived at two optimum ‘dog’-approved models.
The Oxford Lead is made from English saddle leather with reinforced eyelets along its length. The lead uses a brass quick-release bridle hook that swivels so the lead doesn't twist as your dog moves.
The Woodstock Lead is also made from English saddle leather and similar in operation to the Oxford Lead, but uses solid brass rings along the leather strap.
We only wanted our products to be manufactured from the highest quality British-produced leathers and brass cast fittings, so we source our materials from purveyors to the equestrian world’s most exceptional saddle and harness makers.
We didn’t stop at just the Tetherlead, we have also produced a matching range of leather collars and slip collars using the same high quality, durable materials.
The finished products have more than matched our expectations and we hope you will feel the same.
