Dog leads, collars, head collars and harnesses, all handmade.
At Meg Heath Dog Leads I handmake a full range of dog leads and collars. I have 12 years experience in the e-Commerce Pet Industry and bring to you 30 years of experience with dogs.
I currently own a boarding kennel, and with various roles within the canine world, such as rescue and training, you will not find a broader range of skills and experience where the only limitations are your imagination.
Our service is speedy and diligent with a reputation most will only dream of. Browse my website and if you can’t find the dog lead you want, please contact me.
We offer a no quibble Lifetime Stitching Guarantee, we are confident your product will be just perfect.
Special Pet Designs & one-offs
Recently I was asked to make a unique design for a mum of an autistic little girl. Mum had a bad experience with her little girl running out into the road so asked me if I could make a child-harness design for her. I gladly accepted and made the harness as a prototype with a view to a padded one with a leash with a padded handle. Her limited motor skills meant that a front buckle clip was most suitable, but with our design, it is fully reversible.

Dog Identification tags / discs
Dog tags are new to Meg Heath. At the moment we are focussing on tags that are just that little bit better than mainstream tags. The ones we currently stock are slide on dog tags. Please add about 5 extra days to your order.
Fellow doggy designers & pet product retailers
Are you a designer of pet apparel, but do not make your products? Do you have an idea or a prototype that you want to develop? No matter what stage you are at, we can work together to get you in business.
I first used Meg Heath to purchase a car boot restraint, which is very strong as I have a big strong dog and it keeps him in the boot and not in the car. So when I needed a bigger collar and lead I had no hesitation to use Meg Heath again and was dispatched very quickly.
The simple leader headcollar is the best headcollar we’ve found so far. My dog has to wear a muzzle when out because she’s been attacked by other dogs and is now scared of them and other headcollars we’ve tried don’t work underneath her muzzle. The simple leader headcollar stops her pulling without hurting her and without twisting her muzzle around or pulling it into her eyes. Customer service was excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to order again.
We got a 30m long training lead, a martingale harness, and a collar. All are exceptionally well made and fit perfectly. The harness is a little work of art, combined with the long line, our rescue pointer has the illusion of freedom in complete safety while we get some basic training done.

Does handmade mean lesser quality?
… and why should you buy ‘handmade’ as opposed to going to a competitor? The answer to this question is no. I sew all of the orders when they come through using a high tenacity 40 tkt nylon thread. I use an industrial sewing machine that has been modified to work efficiently for me. The quality far exceeds that of shop bought products and all items are inspected by myself before they are packaged. We use polypropylene cushion web, which is a double thickness soft woven narrow fabric with breaking strains between 375 and 450 kilos.
