Our Position on COVID-19
While we recognize the importance of safety pertaining to COVID-19, we also know chances are high that a pup will develop irreversible issues if it isn't exposed to all the things it may encounter in its lifetime, ideally, by the time it's 14 weeks old. Additionally, troubling behaviors, not only in puppies but in older dogs as well, should be addressed before they become concerning habits, and later, serious problems. Waiting until the COVID-19 pandemic has been resolved may very well be too late to help in these situations. For reasons like these, we are currently open for business, and adhering to social distancing guidelines.
PowerLeads with optional Quick-Release clasps are custom made in the USA.
PowerLead Details and Options
   When designing our PowerLead, our mission was simple: We wanted a leash that was light, compact and comfortable, yet super-strong, adjustable, and equipped with the perfect clasp for the task at hand. After proving to be a taller order than we initially imagined, we finally developed the perfect formula.

   Our PowerLead's leash material is a pliable, 16-strand, flat diamond-braid construction, which enables it to be incredibly only 3/4" wide and 1/4" thick, yet extremely strong. The result is a leash with a soft and supple feel, and strong enough to hold a horse!

   Clasp options include our Quick-Release and Scissors clasps, and we custom make each and every PowerLead to your specifications right here in the USA in 24 hours!

   Your PowerLead can be made to any length. Below is a 2 ft. PowerLead ordered by a customer with a well-trained dog that's off-leash most of the time. The 2 ft. PowerLead is essentially a little more than a leash handle and clasp that fits easily in a pocket so the owner always has a leash handy when the dog needs to be leashed. The Quick-Release clasp enables the owner to instantly release the dog again. Remember that the lead material is only 3/4" wide, but because the lead in the pic below is only 2 ft. long, the lead looks much wider than its true 3/4", and the clasp also looks bigger than it really is. See the sidebar at right for actual clasp dimensions.

   At 2-1/4"x1", our Quick-Release clasp is small yet powerful, and is great on leashes for protection dogs, hunting dogs or dogs that owners simply want to be able to release instantly. Quick-Release clasps are either solid brass, or nickel-plated brass or iron, depending on the lead color you select, as shown at right. Note that due to its design, the Quick-Release clasp has a bit of weight behind it, so the Scissors clasp (below) is recommended for small dogs or puppies in training.

   Our Scissors clasp is a mere 1-1/2"x7/8", but don't let its compact size fool you. The Scissors clasp is exceptionally strong, and its dual "hook" design (shown at right) is more secure than typical dog leash clasps. In fact, we use them ourselves when training protection dogs without issue. Because they are light in weight, Scissors clasps are also great for small dogs and puppies in training. Although not specifically designed to be an instant-release clasp like the Quick-Release clasp, the Scissors clasp does indeed provide for quick releases via a convenient "trigger". As with all our hardware, we'll use the Scissors clasp color that best matches the lead color you select, as shown at right.

   The PowerLead's length and handle loop are instantly adjustable via special buckles. By adding knotted grip-stops, a simple shift in hand position enables you to quickly and comfortably shorten up the leash temporarily when you need to, such as on a crowded sidewalk. Note that each knotted grip-stop will shorten your PowerLead by approximately 3 inches, so if you plan on adding knotted grip-stops to your PowerLead, you might consider ordering a length that is longer than your desired working length.

Clasp Options

   Our Quick-Release clasp opens instantly by pulling back on the center slide, making this clasp a great choice for protection dogs, hunting dogs, and owners that simply want to be able to release their dogs quickly. The Quick-Release clasp's dimensions are 2-1/4"x1".


   Despite its small profile and light weight, the unique design of our Scissors clasp utilizes two hooks that "scissor" around the ring on a dog's collar for a secure hold, while the "trigger" facilitates quick releases. This is a great clasp for all-around use, and works well for both large and small dogs alike. Scissors clasps are 1-1/2"x7/8".


Color Combinations


   PowerLeads are available in stunning, unique designs and colors, as shown below. Note that the 2 ft. versions make the lead and hardware look out of proportion and bigger than they really are. Remember, the super-strong PowerLead is only 3/4" wide and 1/4" thick. Click the pics for hi-resolution Images.
