We are a family run business, located in rural Norfolk in England (UK) and have been trading since 2009 (originally as Hessonite Show Leads).
The company was started by Julie who began showing her own dogs and discovered a very limited choice of leads with an even more limited choice of colour and sizes. Having previously worked in the leather and fabric industry she saw a great business idea to provide her fellow show dog friends with a very wide choice of quality leads in a very wide range of colours, sizes and styles to most complement their dogs. For example, Julie shows Golden Retrievers whose colours range from Cream to Dark Gold. Julie can offer leads in all of those colours, and many shades inbetween, alongside complementing colours as an alternative to bring out the best in your dog. Currently we offer in excess of 50 different leather colours and in excess of 20 different cord colours.
We primarily source our leather from top quality Italian and Scottish tanneries. All leads and collars are finished by hand to ensure that the products are to the highest levels of craftsmanship. All of our leads contain a para chord core to provide a product of incredible strength and prevent stretching. Our leads are finshed using the finest quality chain and hardware to offer you a pleasing product that provides you with confidence when showing your dog. Most of our leads can be supplied with Pandora style beads to further personalise your lead and to make you and your dog very eye catching in the ring.
