Around here, leashes are rarely worn by dogs, but are often seen attached to humans. Why settle for common nylon, when you can knit “Unleashed” and enjoy the luxury of accessorizing with pure silk. Silk, while softer than a newborn pup’s ear, filament to filament, is stronger than steel. Tough enough to halt a barreling Great Dane, yet gentle enough to soothe his very particular eco human’s wrist, there’s no other way to roam through the woods, “Unleashed”.

• Size It: Show Dog (Hybrid, Dog Walker) these names match Puddles use. Show Dog is an ultra-short leash for strutting with head held high. Hybrid is a double-handed leash for those times you need an extra grip or wish to walk with a little human holding on too. True to the hybrid spirit, the handles are worked in two colors and the leash length in one. Dog Walker is a long leash for walking with your besties.
