All items on the site are currently 25 percent off with code HOLIDAY25 at checkout.
This adjustable, hand-dyed, hand-spliced leash is made in New York from marine-grade rope and can withstand all the pulling your pup can muster. Featuring a locking brass carabiner on either end of the leash, the Catskill is designed with versatility in mind, either by forming a handle by clipping one of the carabiners to an embedded o-ring, or by clipping the leash around your waist or shoulder for hands-free walking.
We also like the coordinating Catskill Collar as well.
