KJK Ropeworks ~ What size of rope
lead will you need?
The length of clip
lead is a personal choice but usually the smaller the dog the longer
the lead. The most popular length of slip lead is 1.5mt (5') in 4, 6, 8
and 10mm and our 12mm 1.2m (4') and 1.7m (5'7") lengths.

popular size for a showing slip lead for most breeds of dog. It's a
perfect unobtrusive lead for the show ring. Our white, natural or black
code 000 slip leads are ideal for this.
6mm dia. Ideal
size for the smaller dog, yet strong enough for larger breeds.
8mm dia. The
most popular size of rope or braid lead. Strong enough for all breeds
and a nice size to handle. A perfect pocket size lead, whether it's a
clip or slip. These leads are used and recommended by dog trainers and

Try our rope slip
halter. It's our basic slip lead that we have been making for years but
have added it to our list after a customer gave us some fantastic
feedback, saying it was now a joy to take her dog for a walk. See our
