The soft leather leash is buttery soft and easy on the hands. These start out soft and pliable and are prone to stretch a bit. Soft leather is not recommended for large dogs that pull, they may snap. If your large dog pulls we recommend going with our Latigo leashes or braided soft leashes. We have been making our leather leads in our shop since 1982. These are all handmade.
We recommend the 1/4" for Toy Breeds, 3/8" up to 30#, 1/2" up to 45#. The 5/8' and 3/4" work great on larger dogs.
