Dog Leads and Collars Handmade in the U.K.

I've always loved both dogs and business.

I studied and still am studying business learning all about the 'world of business'. I have always known that I have wanted to start my own business, but wasn't sure what to do it on or how to go about it.
When we got our pup Maximus (known as @dappermaximus on Instagram) I straight away got inspired and knew exactly what I wanted to base a business on.

I wanted to try and create something unique. You see so many coloured rope leads on Etsy and Instagram, so many companies have done it. I wanted to make it different. I spent 6 months coming up with lots of different designs and testing them and after all that time I ended up with a design that I was happy with. The leather handle makes the leads look more luxurious and expensive as well as the touch of my signature antler charm.

I hand make all of my leads and collars with time and care to make sure each one is perfect. The strength and quality are tested before any are sold, but please appreciate that these are handmade so if you have a large dogs that pulls, opt for a figure of 8 slip lead.

Thank you for reading.

    I am 19 years old and I am the proud owner of this shop, hand making all products around my University work. I love making the products and then seeing them on all your pooches! So if you have some photos send them in :).

  • Dapper Maximus

    Assistant, Strength Tester

    Maximus is my absolute love. A mad Spaniel who watches over me whilst I’m making my products wondering why I'm not making a fuss of him. He strength tests and quality checks the products before they’re released. Perfect dog for the job.

  • Oscar

    Helper And Tester

    Oscar is our lovely West Highland Terrier who watches over me to make sure everything runs smoothly and struts his stuff in his new gear....

Production partners

  • My dad

    England, United Kingdom

    My dad has supported me throughout my whole venture with opening this shop and has always had faith it would succeed. He helps me everyday with some of the making of the leads and collars. He drills handles and rivets collars. This speeds up the production process and has made this business possible

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalised orders

I accept custom and personalised orders. These may include:
• Different charm
• Different rope length
• Different rope colour
• All rope lead or all leather lead instead of both

However, this may come with and extra cost.


I can accept cancellations up to 24 hours after payment. No longer as I may have already started making your lead. However, get in touch and I may be able to.


My processing time varies, but should take no long than 1 week, and it is then shipped 1st class and signed for, so once shipped it should arrive next working day.

For international orders shipping varies from 3-7 working days depending on which country you live in. However these delivery times may vary which is out of my control. Custom taxes may apply.


These will discussed individually with the customer who wants to return.

I will return and refund or exchange the item if it is faulty. I take a lot of time and effort into making sure these products are good quality, but if there is a problem please contact me.
My products are good quality, are strong and have been well tested to ensure you are satisfied.

I am not responsible for any accidents or injuries caused by this product. They are strong, but make sure you order the correct thickness for your dog to make sure it’s the right strength. It should be used in a safe way.


If you have any other questions, then feel free to get in touch and I will respond as quickly as I can. I can be very flexible if you are looking for something that isn’t listed on my shop.

Care instructions

Leather: To clean the leather handle, gently wipe away any dirt with a cloth.

Leather collars: My collars are coated in a waterproofing wax before sold to make them more durable for your pup. However, if your dog loves the water then this may need upkeep (leather care). If wet, leave to dry on your dog or hang to dry. Don't leave in a enclosed damp space.

Biothane: These collars don't need much upkeep as they're waterproof. However, if it does get dirty, just simply wipe the dirt off with a cloth.

Rope: This can be hand washed in warm water with gentle soap. Rub away any dirt. Hang to dry.

Bandana fabric: These can be hand washed or in the washing machine. Then iron them back into shape.
