What is unique about our dog products?
Meg Heath is based in the UK and every lead, collar, harness or head collar is handmade to order. Our products are tough, well made, washable and designed with your dog in mind. Being a former dog trainer and boarding kennel owner, I know what is suitable for your dog. I am confident knowing what will work and what design is required to make the products long lasting and effective.
Bespoke Handmade Dog Leads & Collars
Sometimes you may want something that is not listed. You may also want to slightly change a design to make it perfect for you and your dog. We are open to bespoke ideas and welcome your creations.
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. HerÂ limited motor skills meant that a front buckle clip was most suitable, but with this design, it is fully reversible.
Collection & tailor-fitting service
We are based in between Metheringham & Navenby in the (LN4) area of Lincoln. We are near to Sleaford, Newark, Boston and Lincoln and further afield Gainsborough, Leicester, Skegness, Market Rasen and Nottingham. So if you are local, you are very welcome to drop by to get your dog measured by myself, or handpick the components to design your dog lead, dog collar, harness or head collar. We can give you a demonstration of how our Car Boot Lead works and you could even pick a fancy colour that’s not listed in the online store.
The benefits of this are you get to touch and see the quality of our products before you buy, we are not a shop per se, but you are welcome to make an appointment to pop in and have your dog tailor-fitted with their very own bespoke dog collar, dog lead, harness or head collar.
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.
Best advise from the pro’s
We were asked to make a child harness for an autistic little girl. Mum was advised by her physiotherapist that with regards to her little girls hyper-mobility, a body harness which had an attachment in the centre of the back was going to be best. Being able to put the harness on like putting a coat on was also a criteria, Beth explained: “particularly with an autistic child or ADHD, it’s a lot easier to keep them still whilst stood in front of them than to try and do something up from the back”. The clips are really stiff so if your child does not have the fine motor skills to undo a buckle clip, this won’t be a problem, however, like I said these are fully reversible.
Soft, safe, secure products
Beth wanted something that was soft, safe, secure and that didn’t cost a fortune. She also wanted something that was suitable for children who can walk well but bolting was the issue. So there you go, the harness is all ready for testing, but not ready for sale yet.
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.

What exactly is a handmade dog lead or collar?
… and why should you buy ‘handmade’ as opposed to going to a competitor? I sew all of the orders when they come through. I use an industrial sewing machine with tkt 40 thread (very strong). 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, it is a double thickness but soft woven narrow fabric.
