Measuring leads and collars

Dog Show leads

Our Dog Show Leads come in standard sizes but we are happy to make a lead to any length you require. See our custom show leads for dogs page


Choosing the correct length of Show leads is dependant on breed, showing style and personal preference. Probably the best way to establish the lead type for your breed is by attending a dog show, observing the dogs being shown & speaking with other competitors is a good way to get to know the lead combinations & showing styles used for showing a particular breed. In particular, observe whether the dog gaits in front of the handler or close to the handler - this obviously has an influence on lead length & there are different conventions for different breeds.


When selecting the length of a Slip Lead, be sure you allow enough length to show off your dog’s neck and shoulder when your dog is in show pose.


Once you have decided on a measurement, its a good idea to experiment with a length of rope, to confirm that you have chosen the length correctly.

Dog Show Sets and Dog Show Collars

A Dog Show Set collar should be fitted so that the leather part of the collar is the same length as the measurement around the dog’s neck, directly behind the dog’s ears. The Curb-chain expands in order to fit the collar over the dog’s head. If the collar is too small the curb-chain acts as a choke chain, which is not correct.


For Slip Collars, take the measurement mid-way down the neck and allow 2 fingers width for comfort. Some people like to use a long slip collar instead of a show chain in which case the neck measurement is not necessary.


We are happy to advise on the suitability and size of any of our Show Collars and Dog Show Leads. If you would like to discuss your requirements please contact us
