Zippy Blue Rope Leash
Built with traditional splicing techniques straight from the sailing industry, we use the most secure way to connect a rope. There are no knots to get in the way or come undone.
The wrist loop, with its 350mm circumference, comfortably and securely hugs the wrist. It will not slip off like some of those large, padded loops you often see.
The aluminum swivel clip we use is lightweight, weighing only 15 grams. It won't drag your dog's martingale down and won't bounce around like a bell. It's easy to clip on and off, producing a satisfying snap. It rotates smoothly even under heavy load.
Locally-produced Double Braid Ropes
These ropes are crafted with care by our 100% New Zealand-owned ropemaker. With over 60 years of experience in research, rope, and yarn making, they prioritize quality and environmental sustainability. These ropes are made from the finest fibers and are designed to minimize environmental impact.
Why choose double braid ropes? They are the trusted marine standard, featuring a strong inner braid for added strength and an outer cover for durability and resistance to abrasion.
Our standard carabiners are strong and provide complete security when used with our collars, we have become aware of potential compatibility issues with the V-ring on Ruffwear harnesses and smaller dog collars that have thin D/O-rings with a 27mm OD.
For a more worry-free experience when using our products along with Ruffwear harnesses; we highly recommend our trigger clip leads. These leads have the same build and design as our classic leashes, but with a trigger clip that is compatible with every collar and harness we have come across. Rest assured, this trigger clip meets our usual criteria for a reliable and high-quality clip.
Rope Leashes are strong and can be very long-lasting if they aren't too heavily abused. Below are some tips and tricks to help with preventative maintenance, and keep your leash long-lived.
Ocean visits: Nothing likes saltwater. It brings death to all things metal. Post beach visits, you can rinse your leash with fresh water, and hang to dry. This isn't necessary, but if your leash is regularly going in the water, it can help prevent any salt build-ups in the rope, keeping it soft.
The carabiner is made of aluminium, but there is a stainless steel spring that holds the gate close. This will need to be rinsed with clean water and dried. It's then best to follow this up with a drop of duck oil or machine oil, or a quick spray of WD40 to displace any residual water.
Storage: Your leash will want to stay out of the sun and rain just like your dog! Keep it inside and out of the weather where possible.
Every leash is handmade, so if like something but isn't the colour or length you want, or it's sold out? Please feel free to reach out through the contact form or message us on Facebook.
