----------

Introducing our Trainer Slip Lead, the go-to choice for both dog owners and professional dog trainers. Handcrafted upon order, each slip dog leash is meticulously made from rolled BioThane, offering unmatched strength and durability.

We make our lightweight slip leads using a custom-designed, high-quality secure stopper that ensures the loop stays in place, making it ideal for leash pressure training while prioritizing the safety and well-being of your dog.

Measuring just over 5ft end to end (or 7ft), the slip lead varies between 4ft to 4.5ft (or 6ft to 6.5ft) after putting it on your dog's neck, depending on the size of the dog. Available in both thumb loop and drag line options, the Trainer Slip Lead provides versatility for different dog training scenarios. The thumb loop option ensures a secure grip, while the mini-loop drag line option is perfect for house training, allowing your dog to safely drag the leash. Please note: Our Mini-Loop Drag Line option has a small 1" loop at the end for the option to connect another KONOS leash to add length.

Also note: O-ring is made of stainless steel, not black as shown in the photos.

Trust in the reliability of our Trainer Slip Lead for effective and comfortable training experiences.

FAQs

What is BioThane?

Our premium rolled BioThane leashes are made of Beta-coated polyester webbing that's stronger and more durable than leather. This remarkable material is engineered by enveloping a core webbing with a protective polymer coating, ensuring unrivaled durability and strength.

BioThane is waterproof, odor-resistant, fade-resistant, lightweight, soft, easy to clean, and durable—leading to longer-lasting leashes with fewer replacements.

What is a thumb loop?

The thumb loop is a 2-inch design element integrated into the handle of our leashes. It allows you to anchor the leash securely on your thumb while holding it, providing an added layer of control and preventing accidental drops during walks or outdoor activities.

Note: While our thumb loop feature provides an added layer of security and control, it is essential to remain attentive and alert while using the leash. The thumb loop is designed to reduce the likelihood of accidental drops and improve handling, but it does not replace proper leash training or supervision. Always ensure the loop is appropriately secured on your thumb and maintain a firm grip on the leash while walking your dog.

How strong is Biothane?

BioThane is an exceptionally robust material, providing outstanding strength and reliability for our leashes. In particular, the 1/4" width rolled BioThane rope used in our leashes boasts an impressive break strength of 500 lbs. The strength of this material ensures optimal security and control, even for larger and more energetic dogs.

What sets our leashes apart is the ability to deliver such strength while remaining surprisingly lightweight. Despite its immense durability, BioThane is significantly lighter than traditional materials like leather or nylon. This means you and your dog can enjoy long walks and adventures without feeling weighed down, making it the perfect choice for both small and large breeds.

Note: Our BioThane leashes are not designed for tie-outs or tethering purposes due to safety concerns. Tethering can lead to potential risks and harm to your pet and others. Any damage caused to our products as a result of tethering or misuse is not covered by our warranty. We strongly advise against using our leashes for such activities and recommend supervising your dog at all times during walks and training.

Are BioThane leashes waterproof and easy to clean?

BioThane leashes are super easy to clean! They are designed to be waterproof, making them ideal for any weather condition or outdoor adventure. Whether you encounter rain, puddles, or mud, you can trust that your BioThane leash will remain in excellent condition. We can't say the same for your dog, though.

Additionally, the non-porous nature of BioThane makes it incredibly easy to clean—simply wipe it down or rinse it off, and your leash will look as good as new.

Are BioThane leashes safe for my dog's skin and coat?

Yes, BioThane leashes are safe and comfortable for your dog's skin and coat. The smooth surface of BioThane minimizes friction and irritation, preventing chafing or discomfort during walks. Additionally, the waterproof nature of BioThane prevents the material from absorbing odors or bacteria that could potentially irritate your dog's skin.

Are BioThane leashes suitable for all dog breeds and sizes?

Yes, absolutely! BioThane leashes are engineered to cater to a wide range of dog breeds and sizes. Whether you have a small, medium, large, or extra-large dog, you'll find one of our BioThane leashes that suits your dog's needs. The strength and durability of BioThane ensure that it can comfortably handle dogs of varying sizes and activity levels.

What are the benefits of using a BioThane leash for outdoor activities and adventures?

Our BioThane leashes offer several advantages for outdoor activities and adventures. Their waterproof properties ensure they won't get weighed down or weakened by water exposure, making them perfect for beach walks, hikes, or rainy-day strolls. The material's strength and durability provide a secure hold, giving you peace of mind during any adventure with your dog. Additionally, BioThane's resistance to odors, mold, and mildew ensures the leash remains fresh and hygienic throughout your outdoor adventures. No more stinky leashes!

Can I use a BioThane leash for training purposes, such as obedience training or leash manners?

Absolutely, you can! BioThane leashes are well-suited for training purposes. Their sturdy construction and reliable grip give you better control during obedience training, leash manners, or teaching your dog new commands. The lightweight and comfortable feel of BioThane also allows for extended training sessions without causing fatigue to your hands.
