Glacier Slip Lead for medium to extra large dogs. Made in USA.
Glacier Climbing Rope Slip Lead for Medium to Extra Large Dogs. Welded Stainless O ring, 500 para cord stop, custom rope fittings.

Slip Leads for the Big Dogs.

Climbing rope slip leads are a popular choice among animal rescue groups, dog kennels and trainers. Slip leads can be a helpful tool for training large dogs not to pull.

An optional carabiner can replace the normal loop handle allowing more flexibility in how the leash is used.

Slip leads when used correctly, and placed high on the dogs neck are reliable, easy to use, and comfortable for the dog. This type of leash should be snug but not tight. Position the para cord keeper so that the lead stays in place during walks.

Mountain climbing rope is an ideal material for slip leads. The stainless steel welded O ring helps reduce friction so the slip lead will release immediately after a correction is given. The stainless steel O ring is fully welded and has a breaking strength of 1200lbs.

We make what we call a “paracord keeper”. This is made with 550 mil spec paracord, and grips the leash holding the slip lead in place. Paracord was originally used as suspension lines on parachutes. The number 550 indicates the nylon cords minimum breaking strength in pounds.

The custom aluminum rope connections are the same industrial strength connection used on all of our dog leashes. These connections are bomb proof and will not come loose.

Our climbing rope slip leads are a very straight forward design. The durability and quality of materials we use is better than most anything found in your local pet store. The design of our slip leads, and the method of assembly is original to us, and often copied. If your not purchasing direct from us, your not purchasing an original My Dogs Cool dog leash.

Custom lengths and colors are available in the drop down menus.

Slip leads when used correctly are designed to loosen immediately after a correction is given. The use of a Slip Lead requires the handler understand how to safely, and correctly use this type of lead so as not to hurt or injure the dog. Slip leads are not available in lengths longer than 6ft.

Slip lead

I'm a little behind as I received my slip lead a little over a week ago. BUT.... I absolutely love it! The quality is exceptional. Also, I had asked for a couple custom additions which turned out perfect and just as I had hoped. I couldn't be more pleased.
Thank you for your service and honored to support products made in the USA.

We appreciate the kind words and your business; they both help with our efforts to support local no kill dog shelters. We are happy to know the slip leash is liked and hope you and your dog make good use of it.

Thanks So Much!

Great products!

First things first ........ Thank you for your service! My wife and I are proud of our Veterans.

Second ........ Thank you for an awesome made in the USA product! Barring abuse, your products will last a life time which makes them worth every penny. These are not fake, imitation, "inspired" climbing rope leads, these are the real deal. Strong, well made, great looking, simply an outstanding product.

We ordered one 4ft slip-lead, one 4ft leash, and one 6ft leash from you. So far, the 4ft slip-lead has been our go-to lead. It has everything we need and nothing we don't. Our newly adopted Bull Terrier from our local no-kill shelter does very well on this.

Thanks again for your service and a great product!

Thanks Mike! Customers like you, and your wife make all the difference in what we do. Your support and kind words are appreciated. ~ Josh

Just received my leash today and I love it!

Hi Josh,

Just received my leash today and I love it!!

It is great on my Belgian Sheepdogs (same as the Malinois, but long hair and black.) The hair doesn't stick to the mountain rope like it will with other materials, and the ring is large enough that the hair doesn't get caught up in it. The paracord wrap also is tight enough that the leash stays up behind the ears so it can be more effective for correction. I have a leather one that the wrap just flaps around so it is ineffective.

Lastly the thing I probably like the most is the thickness of the lead! I have horses so, I didn't want a horse rope slip collar which most of them are made from the same type rope and this is definitely not! It is easy to hold on to with a good grip, and yet thin enough that if you want to just use a couple fingers to make mild corrections you can do that too.

It reminds me of super sensitive fishing line, compared to the crappy stuff. You can feel the dog going out faster then with a traditional leash, and correct that behavior quicker!

Thank you for your product, and will be ordering again soon!!

Top Notch!

This is our second MyDogsCool product and it's as great or maybe even better than the first (if that's even possible). Great slip lead, amazing quality to even withstand a puppy who takes his "teething" seriously! Top notch product, top notch customer service, top notch company. They do it right.

Thanks so much for taking time to share your opinion - its appreciated! We always like getting feed back on our custom dog leashes. :-) Keep an eye on that puppy, they can chew right through an anchor chain if given the chance. :-)

Strong and reliable.

Brilliant lead, strong and a pleasure to use even in wet conditions. Carabiner is brilliant light and strong and awesome when you need to tie up your hound.

Excellent service too, dilivered to the UK in less than a week and at Christmas time too.

Thanks Richard, that's terrific! Im glad to hear the custom slip lead meets your approval and that it found its way to the UK so quickly! Thank you so much for your business, its appreciated.

Rescue Heaven!

I just ordered three 6 foot slip leads. Two as gifts for fellow animal rescue volunteers and one for myself. I am thrilled with the quality. I work with a lot of strong dogs that pull and the general run of the mill nylon slip leads are simply not durable and they stretch out. I have been searching for something made really well. This is it and it is made in the USA by a vet! I am going to tell all of my fellow animal rescue volunteers about this wonderful product! Awesome color selections too so people won't mistake your leash for theirs on the job. Just Awesome for the price too!

Thanks Anita!! As an animal rescuer your comments and assessment of our custom slip leads means alot to us. It's nice to know that you and your fellow animal rescuers are on the job. People like yourself make a difference to these animals and we're honored our dog leads can be of some help to the rescue work you do.
