Because these are crafted from Beta Biothane and Stainless Steel, they are WaterProof and OdorProof. If you want waterproof, you want Stainless Steel. It’s such a waste to make a biothane leash and then use coated or plated hardware that will tarnish, rust, and chip.
If you opt to have a handle, it has 8″ of length for your hand to comfortably grip. (16″ doubled) Three permanent Stainless rivets securely fasten both the handle and the Stainless Swivel Snap.
If you’re looking for the regular heavier weight stainless swivel snap, you can find it here: Biothane Regular 1/2 Leash
If you’re looking for 5/8″ wide leashes, you can find them here: Biothane 5/8″ wide Leash
Lightweight but durable and strong. Perfect for Tracking, Nose Work, as a Drag Line and for safely Teaching Off Line Obedience.
Current AKC Tracking rules state: “The handler will follow the dog at a distance of no less than twenty (20) feet,
except during the TDU or VST test where the handler may follow the dog at a distance of no less than ten (10) feet.”
Distance markers are measured from the Snap end of the leash, not the Handle end.
If you would like permanent stainless steel rivets, as shown in the above photo, placed as distance markers at 10′ or 20′, leave me a note in the “Order Notes” box as you make your purchase. The last picture shows you where to find the “Order Notes” box.
Crafted from Beta Biothane with Stainless Steel Hardware
AntiBacterial ~ HypoAllergenic ~ Maintenance Free ~ Waterproof
Will never crack, rot, or stretch ~ Unlike leather, no conditioners or oils are necessary
Does not mold or mildew under any conditions
Does not absorb odors ~ Whatever disgusting gunk your dog finds to roll in, it is not a problem. Just rinse and pat dry or air dry
Has a minimum pull strength of 1000 pounds per inch of width and is 20% lighter than leather.
Stays supple in cold weather ~ Does not feel gunky in hot weather
Looks and feels like leather but simply outperforms and outlasts leathe
I do not use plated metals because the plating chips and wears through to the base metal over time
I use only Stainless Steel for these reasons:
Stronger and Harder than Brass
Virtually indestructible, with inherent long-life properties that do not diminish over time or repeated use
Well-known for its antibacterial, hypoallergenic and hygienic properties, stainless steel is very easy to clean
I will do everything possible to make sure you are tail wagging happy. Please think carefully because this leash is made specifically for your order and is not returnable unless I made an Ooopsie.
A portion of profit goes to 501c3 Hartmans Haven Dog Rescue ~ Hartmans never leaves a Mother behind and doesn’t turn away the difficult dogs, the neglected and abused, the heartbreaking medical need cases.
Collars and Leashes have a laser engraved “Collars by Kitt” somewhere on their stainless steel hardware so you’ll remember where they came from. When you decide your other dog must have one or when your friends ask “Where did you get that?”, you won’t forget. 🙂
All Leashes and Collars are lovingly wrapped in PawPrint Tissue Paper and garnished with PawPrint Ribbon. If you have any questions or requests, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Thank you very much for visiting, Kitt
