This listing is for a guide leash made of 3/4" biothane. 

It has 2 stationary rings. On a 5' leash, when clipped to the ring near the top, it becomes a 4' leash, and when clipped to the bottom ring it becomes a 2.5' leash. This style is generally used with service dogs as the shorter length makes it less cumbersome when the dog is performing a guide task, and the longer length option makes things like potty breaks simple. Even though this style of leash is intended for service dogs, it makes a great leash for pets, too! This leash can be clipped around a chair leg at an outdoor restaurant, can be used as a wheelchair leash, or you can attach one clip to your dog’s collar and the other to their prong or head collar so the leash is still attached if the training collar fails! 

The available hardware choices are nickel plated trigger snaps, stainless steel bolt snaps, solid brass trigger snaps and bolt snaps, and aluminum auto-locking carabiners. Solid brass and stainless steel are rust proof, so if your leash will be repeatedly exposed to water, they would be the best hardware choices! Please note that brass will darken as it develops a patina. This is a normal occurrence and does not affect the hardware. 

To maintain, simply wipe with a wet paper towel or wash with soap and water. Avoid wetting plated hardware as it is not rust proof, and it should be dried after water exposure.


While biothane is the perfect material for dogs who are frequently exposed to water, it should not be used in chemically treated pools. Chlorine can cause the biothane to crack. Biothane should not be used with a flea collar. Collars should be removed when a topical flea treatment is administered, and may be replaced once the treatment has fully dried. As with chlorine, flea collars/treatments can cause biothane to crack. This does not happen in every instance, but be aware that it is a possibility and these things should be avoided for the longevity of your gear.
