Dog Leashes constructed of climbing rope and quality parts are often the best for medium to extra large dogs. These will outlast most any dog leash on the market.
Unlike most other types of rope used for making dog leashes, climbing rope is tested to meet UIAA safety ratings.
The Union Internationale des Associations d’Alpinisme (UIAA) is the international mountaineering and climbing federation.
The UIAA Safety Commission develops and maintains safety standards for climbing rope and related equipment. These standards are implemented worldwide.
The main stream pet industry has no UIAA safety standards for the leashes they sell.
UIAA testing procedures are in depth. Only products that pass the testing procedures carries the UIAA mark. This is not something you will likely see stamped on a dog leash sold at your local pet store.
A dogs leash is its lifeline between you and harm’s way. Climbing rope is a perfect choice if you think this way.
