June 2016 is our 10 year anniversary & we’re quite excited. This time 10 years ago I was at Heckington Show, Lincolnshire and I was inspired by a stall – I thought “I can do this and better!” Back in 2006 I was also a dog trainer, I did classes, private lessons and residential training. I knew the importance of the long line and as a trainer I knew that without a long line, you couldn’t really train a recall (coming back when called) with any degree of success.
So after I designed my training lead I made lots of different types of dog leads, I even designed a new type of head collar. All my leads were made with a passion. They were hand stitched when each order came through – none of our leads were pre-made.
Today I still use the same sewing machine. I have bought another straight stitch machine and an embroidery machine, so we do personalised leads and collars too now. This business supports my work in the boarding kennels and now the dog rescue at Meg Heath.
A bit about our dog leads – our 10 year anniversary !
We mainly make long training leads from 5 up to 50 metres and primarily used for recall training and allowing dogs extra freedom who would not ordinarily be allowed of the lead. They are made from a soft cushion web which is strong and durable but still nice to hold. Our leads are popular amongst dog trainers & I use them in my kennels, especially the ones made with brass fittings as they last longer with abuse! We find that they are great for dogs who have maybe been rescued and have had no previous training. It’s such a shame that they cant always be allowed off the lead but with a long line, they can.
