Thank you so much for Harry's beautiful new lead to match his similar new collar. As with the collar, the craftsmanship and the quality of materials is outstanding. Harry is quite the smart gentleman doggy in the village now on his walks. We also really appreciated the personal approach, attention and service throughout the order and production process (which I did not expect to be so quick). An absolute pleasure to be a client. We would not hesitate to recommend Hugo & Otto. Harry (The Retriever) & Sean (The Owner)

Beautifully hand crafted our Bucklers Hard Dog Leads are a gorgeous and each one is individual. The Bucklers Hard is a luxury dog lead handmade in our studio and available in 3 widths of 8, 10 or 12 mm. This beautiful navy rope is a Superyacht grade braid on braid which is silky soft to touch and perfect for your hands and your dog's coat. The rope does not stretch and is designed to withstand the elements facing severe sea conditions and salt corrosion. We hot splice and sew the rope together and then whip over with a beautiful Turks head knot in stunning red cord at the handle end of the City lead over a white flat whipping cord and at the bronze clasp end we whip in red flat whipping which perfectly compliments the beautiful Bucklers Hard Dog Collar.

Rope Width guidelines:
Please ensure that you order the correct width for your dog breed we recommend the following widths as a guideline the 8mm line is perfect for small breeds and feels very lightweight on your hands and on your dog's neck. All the ropes coil up really well and are super handy in the car or in your bag. You will notice that we have said large labrador on the 12mm as our own labrador is from working stock and he is super strong, whereas his little friend Milly is a small black labrador and the 10mm is perfect for her and looks great.
