The cleverly designed ANCOL Rope Slip and Control Lead Combination functions as both a head halter (or head collar) and slip lead. This lead measures 1m x 12mm and the looped end has a figure-8 design with an infinity loop holder for simple head halter use. The size of the head halter can be varied by adjusting the keeper. This will ensure the head halter remains fixed in place. The long-lasting and supple nylon is woven into a diamond pattern with leather finishing at the joints. Nylon is well-suited for dog leads as it is strong, lightweight, and durable. Ancol’s Nylon Rope Leads are also weatherproof, easy to clean, and flexible, meaning the handle is comfortable for owners to grip.
Slip leads are a traditional and convenient accessory for working and retrieval dogs and for dogs in training. The slip lead features a ring on one end, allowing the lead to form a loop. The keeper ensures that the loop is made secure. This allows the lead to form a collar (or a head halter); ideal for instances where the dog should not wear a regular collar, such as when retrieving. Sliding the keeper means the collar and lead can easily be removed. Slip leads are sometimes employed as head collars by dog owners as a training aid.
