What we do?
We hand make dog leads, dog collars, head collars and dog harness‘ here in my work room in Lincolnshire, UK. When your order comes through, I pick the components and sew your dog lead or collar together. It then gets despatched usually by courier & sometimes by Royal Mail. I work on an industrial machine sourcing my raw materials from a company in Cheshire. I keep most things in stock but sometimes I have to order materials in to complete your order.
A lot of my hand-made products are unique to Meg Heath Dog Leads, some have Design Rights registered to me such as the Simple Leader Dog Head Collar, The Car Boot Lead for Dogs and the Martingale Dog Harness. I offer a no quibble Lifetime Stitching Guarantee, but returns are few and far between.I have been making dog leads & collars for 11 years now and still enjoy it as much – if not more – than the day I started.
What is unique about our products
We are based in the UK and every lead is made after your order comes through, it is not pre made and waiting on a shelf. 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 just what is right for your dog and what will work.
Sometimes you may want something that is not listed or you might want to slightly change a design to make it perfect for you and your dog. We are open to modifications and welcome your suggestions.
Special Designs & one-offs
This week 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 in to 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 this design, it’s fully reversible.
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.
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 that bolting was the issue than support. So there you go, the harness is all ready for testing, but not ready for sale yet.
