Climbing Rope Dog Leashes Handmade in USA Designed for Medium to Extra Large Dogs.

Hiking with our big dogs in the back country, or down the street is always an adventure for dogs. It’s up to us to watch their back, and keep them safe; they often do the same for us. A well made climbing rope dog leash is a perfect addition to your dogs gear, and will provide added peace of mind that your big dog is safe at your side.

We use marine grade 316 stainless steel clips in our standard dog leash design. These can be upgraded with a small forged aluminium locking carabiner; the same kind rated for mountaineering and rock climbing.

American made climbing rope is among the best materials for dog leashes; it meets strength and safety standards within its industry that is non existent in the main stream pet industry. This is why we can consistently build climbing rope dog leashes that are well made, reliable, and trusted among our customers with strong dogs.

More Dog Leashes 

The best dog leashes for walking and training your big dogs.

Climbing rope dog leashes are strong and dependable. They are perfect for dog walking, and rugged enough for hiking, backpacking, jogging or obedience training. Our slip leads are strong enough for daily kennel work with multiple dogs.

For the professionals K9 trainers our rope dog leashes are the absolute best in durability and can be customized for your needs. Handmade in the USA.

We insist on using only quality materials from industries that supply their customers with products that meet strict and reliable strength and safety standards. This allows us to consistently build dog leashes that are better designed than most any dog leash sold in major pet stores.

Dog Leashes are available in many different styles and configurations. Listed below are the most popular leashes we build. For more information click the links to see the dog leash you’re interested in.

Climbing Rope Dog Leash with Traditional SS Clip

Most medium to extra large dogs trained to walk on leash will do perfectly well on a traditional four or six foot leash with our 3.5 inch marine grade 316 stainless steel clip. The website defaults to these leashes shown in the main images. Click any image to view that particular leash.

The option menus listed for every leash offers customization with carabiners, professional swivels, affordable Heavy Duty Locking Swivel Clips, and different handle styles. If you are not seeing the options you’re interested in please feel free to contact us.

Heavy Duty Dog Leashes

Heavy Duty Dog Leashes are designed for strong Dogs weighing 90 pounds or more. A four inch locking stainless steel swivel clip is used for its strength, durability and safety. These are perfect when combined with climbing rope and will give many years of reliable use.

Carabiner Dog Leashes

Carabiners are a popular choice for strong dogs, we use only professional forged aluminum compact locking carabiners. These will not swivel like our stainless steel clips or ultimate dog leash. If you need a rope leash with the added strength of a carabiner, and the ability for it to swivel, consider the Ultimate Dog Leash with both a nanoSwivel and carabiner or the Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Swivel Clip. If your large dog is well trained, a carabiner dog leash provides the added strength and safety needed without the ability to swivel.

The Ultimate Dog Leash

The Ultimate Dog Leash was designed for my own large dog during hikes in the mountains, and latter made available to different U.S, Military K9 Units. Working K9’s are trained in a variety of different jobs and sometimes a heavy duty leash design is required. Some large dogs that normally walk well on leash may also have strong prey drives, become overly excitable, protective, frightened or aggressive; these dogs can easily ignore leash commands and the handler will at least have the peace of mind knowing the leash will not fail.

The ultimate dog leash uses a professional swivel with a stainless steel axle and sealed bearings. It’s machined from a solid block of high strength aluminum. The swivels are commonly used in mountain climbing and rescue work. Weighing in at 2.0 oz and 2.5 inches long, this is the lightest load-rated swivel available with a breaking strength around 5060lbs. These work perfectly with our climbing rope dog leashes.

Slip Leads

Rope Slip Leads are a simple and reliable leash and require the handler to be familiar with the correct way to use this style dog leash. We took the popular European style slip lead and Americanized it with climbing rope and our original heavy duty customized rope connections. A durable mil spec para cord adjustable keeper helps keep the slip lead in place. When used correctly these work great for training strong dogs not to pull on lead. Slip leads are popular with animal rescue teams, veterinarians and many dog trainers.

Jaeger Dog Leash

AKA, handsfree over-the-shoulder dog leash is great for hiking with your big dog. These are worn over the shoulder and clip in to an adjustable O ring on the main leash or into a second O ring on the dogs end of the lead. This style dog leash allows you to keep your handsfree and still maintain control of your dog. Hiking and jogging with your dog is a popular activity with this style leash. It’s another example of how climbing rope dog leashes can be used in a variety of ways with medium to extra large dogs.

Double Dog Leash Coupler

Double dog leash couplers are designed to work with a carabiner dog leash. Leashes with a stainless steel clip will not fit the reinforced eye on the coupler. Couplers are built with stainless steel marine grade swivel clips that work great for most medium to extra large dogs. For our pro version we use cnc machined swivels with forged aluminium locking carabiners.

Quick Release Dog Leash

Intended for police and military K9’s or any professional working dog where a quick one handed release of the dog is needed; even when the dog is pulling in anticipation of being released. The quick release is cast in marine grade 316 stainless steel and works well with medium to extra large dogs.

Double Handle Dog Leash

A double handle dog leash gives added control when you need to keep your dog close to your side or in a heel or sitting position. This is useful when crossing streets or any time maximum control of your dog is needed. If you ever find yourself trying to reel in your dog to regain control, a second handle is recommended. For people in wheel chairs with service dogs, this gives another convenient hold that helps direct a dog when navigating through high traffic areas.

Dogs are Family

Dogs deserve nothing less than the best, and a climbing rope dog leash is a great way of keeping your big dog safe on your daily adventures around town, hikes in the mountains and backcountry or during your training and rescue work.

Our custom climbing rope dog leashes & slip leads sell worldwide and used by Professional Dog Trainers, Animal Rescue Teams, Military, Police K-9 Units, and those of us that just want a better than average dog leash.

Most secure leash I've ever used.

We discovered this leash three years ago when we adopted our first retired racing greyhound, Biscuit. She got spooked by a runner and in the process of trying to soothe her, my hand dragged across the leash's snap hook and it opened. (She didn't escape, but it was too close for comfort!) I called my husband in tears, he did some research and finally sent me a link to the Ultimate Climbing Rope Leash with nano-swivel and locking carabiner.

This leash has performed flawlessly for three years of daily use, and I've since purchased one for each dog we've adopted! We ordered one for Buster, our male greyhound, before he even came home so I could be sure he'd have it from day one -- and now our little Italian Greyhound has one too, although for him we opted for the snap hook. I am so glad to have found these leashes, and I know we'll be using them for many years to come.

Stephanie You're Amazing! Thanks for the kind words but more importantly your desire to adopt, and help retired racing greyhounds, these dogs need people like yourself. Biscuit and Buster are the most perfect names I've heard in a while, and certainly they are perfect dogs!

Thanks so much!

Perfect for my rough and tumble girl!

Super quality leash. Looking at other rope leashes, the hardware just doesn't compare to this one. Very sturdy! Perfect for my rough and tumble girl! Beautiful color too 💙

The best

This is the best leash I have ever owned and I'm in my 60's. Extremely well made yet light enough for long walks. Looks great on my Airedales and I will recommend to anyone looking for a quality piece of equipment. Quality and usability are what I look for in everything I buy, I sure found both here.

Thank you Ed! Building custom dog leashes helps us support local no kill dog shelters. Customer reviews helps us get the word out that are little business exists; it's also a hell of a motivator that our dog leashes are appreciated; that matters to any small business especially ours. Thanks! Josh Sterling

Great Leashes

I bought two leashes from My Dogs Cool. The Kingfisher color is awesome. The quality of these leashes is unsurpassed. Light, strong, and functional, the best leashes I have ever owned. A great American made product.

Thanks Ed!! Your business is certainly appreciated and customer reviews are an awesome bonus! Thanks so much!! Josh Sterling

Raven Quick Release Leashes

We love our Raven Quick Release leashes for our two Giant Schnauzers so much! So well made, good looking, and superior function. Recommending you to our other Giant owner friends. Large, strong, active working breeds such as ours require something that will hold up to them, and this is it!

Wow! Thank You Monique for recommending our leashes to your awesome friends! That means a lot to us and greatly appreciated!

Thank you!
