This multi-functional lead has 5 different uses and is fully stitched with two swivel bolt snaps at each end, a D-ring, as well as a floating ring.
Size: 3/4" x 8'
The Leather Jaeger Lead is a fine quality leash. The snaps at either end attach to one of three 'D' rings or a floating 'O' ring. One small issue is that in use, when snapping to the 'D' rings, the orientation of the 'D' rings turn the resulting loops wrong-side-out. Not a functional problem, but perhaps an aesthetic oversight. The 'D' rings should be mounted facing the other way around. I might also add another 'D' ring closer to a snap end to create a smaller loop handle. Would love to see this leash offered in a smaller scale, maybe 1/2" wide with lighter weight hardware for smaller dogs. Overall a great leash, but not quite perfect.
I got the Jaeger Lead for use with my service dog. She's a 65 lb lab and it is a pain to maneuver together holding her leash, especially if I need to carry or do anything else. The leather is high quality and the construction is excellent. It deserves 5 stars, but it falls short of perfect to me for 2 reasons. First, I wish it had one more ring, close to the end, so you can form a handle for times when you don't want to wear the lead. When we're in the woods, and she could use a little more slack in the lead, it could be helpful to have that shorter handle loop. Second, from all of the pictures and descriptions I could find, I believed the lead to be one continuous piece of leather. It isn't. It's two pieces, stitched and riveted together at the middle where the d ring is located. A friend had given me a different leash that ended up falling apart at the seam between two pieces of leather, so the single piece construction appearance was a big draw to me. It is a much higher quality of craftsmanship, so I have full confidence that it will perform well and last, but I wish that description or the pictures would have been clearer. It has been a great tool for me, it looks great, and I'm happy that it was made in the USA!
This is the 2nd lead I have purchased. I bought this one for my wife after I have used one for two years. The leather is initially a bit stiff, but softens very soon. We have two standard poodles and these leads are awesome! They are high quality and functional and worth the price if you like these aspects and have a dog that is well mannered.
This product exceeded expectations. Wonderful in the hand.
This is a great product from its functionality to the aesthetics. The multi-use features are very useful, and the hands-free option is great for teaching the dog to remain in the heel position. The leather and brass attachments are both of very good quality, giving the lead a classic/timeless appearance.
Good. The leather is nice quality. Very pleased.
We take our dogs to the beach often and nothing tests quality like salt water. As with any other Mendota products, this one too retains it shape and colour after hours of soaking in the Pacific Ocean. Well done folks of Mendota. Thank you for the hard work.
