River Rock Climbing Rope Leash

Regular price $36.99 Sale price $36.99

Made from real climbing rope and durable chew-proof rope clamps, this leash is paired with a durable locking carabiner to both last a lifetime but also keep your best friend safe and secure. The locking carabiner is easy to use and quick-to-clip with a manual locking feature so your pup stays secure. The carabiner also makes it easy to attach the leash to anything else (or clip it to itself while slung around a tree) for maximum versatility. 

Features:

- Premium 8mm climbing rope

- Durable/chew-proof rope clamps

-12kn rated heavy duty aluminum manual locking carabiners, individually tested 

All our leashes are hand-assembled here in Squamish, British Columbia and inspected personally. If you are dissatisfied for any reason, we'll replace or refund your leash for free. 

10% of all purchases made go to a rotating animal shelter/rescue program - learn more and see this month's recipient here 

*The carabiners on our leashes are compatible with just about every collar or harness as you can either clip directly to the collar or on any leash attachment ring or point. However, they do not have a swivel function so they are not compatible with metal-pronged choke-chain style collars or any collar that requires a swivel function. 

Leash Sizing Chart

What size leash should I choose? 

We now offer 3 main leash sizes, 4 foot, 5 foot, and 6 foot. Each has their advantages but it really comes down to your dog, the environment you walk them in, and your personal preference. 5 foot leashes are the more traditional length and good for all around. 4 foot leashes are good for dogs who spend a lot of time off-leash and just on leash while getting to and from the trailhead, or if you generally want more control over your dog. 6 foot leashes are great for those dogs who like to sniff and roam and don't have the tendency to pull, and it's a good length to also use to tether to posts, trees, etc.

Still not sure which one to choose? Read on:

 

4 foot leash

Sometimes referred to as a "city leash" or a short-walker leash, 4 foot leashes are on the short end of a dog leash. Generally people who walk in busy areas, near roadways, or in any environment where they'd like to keep their dog close to them prefer a shorter leash. It's also easier if you have a puller who's harder to manage on leash. For us, we prefer the 4 foot leash most of the time because we like to have our dogs close and controlled until we get to the trailhead where we then let them off leash to run and explore at their will. They also take up less room in your pack or easily and comfortably sling over one shoulder for easy access when your dog is off leash. 

Cons of the 4 foot leash are that the dog doesn't have much room to sniff, explore, and wander while on-leash, meaning he may pull you around this way and that. The shorter leash also doesn't leave much spare room to tie your dog up while you run into your local coffee shop.  

5 foot leash

This is the leash size you'll find as your "standard" leash in most pet stores. It's a great all-arounder and if you are in doubt, we'd get this one. You can always double it up (clip the handle end of the leash to the opposite-end carabiner before attaching it to your dog) for a nice and short city leash. 

Cons are that it doesn't sling across your shoulders as comfortably as the 4 footer, and you don't have as much versatility with the 6 foot for tethering to posts, etc. 

6 foot leash

The 6 foot leash is a more standard-to-long length of leash, allowing your dog space to zig zag about, sniff on this, pee on that, and just do dog stuff while still on lead. It's also the ideal length if you want to tether them up (and super easy and secure with the locking carabiner on our leashes.) 

Cons include having to choke up on the leash when needing more control in busy areas or with dogs who get distracted easily (a good tip is tying an overhand knot on a bite in the middle of the leash, and using an extra carabiner to clip the handle to the bite in the middle of the leash if you want to shorten it on the fly.) Other cons are it being bulkier in your pack, and not as comfortable to wear yourself (Miss America style) while the pupper is off leash.

Strong and Durable!

Finally a dog leash that can hold up for all the adventures! We have the 4 foot length leash. Generally I would go for a longer leash but this changed the game for me and my dog. I like be able to have lots of control on our dog walks. The locking carabiner is super strong and Suz is a pleasure to deal with. PS if you're a rock climber you definitely need one of these leashes for the crag.

Bought one leash as a gift, then had to buy 2 more!

We bought an electric lime rope leash at a craft market as a gift. We were so impressed with the colour (nice and bright), durability, and the locking carabiner (for a wiggly puppy) that we bought a mulberry rope leash and an amethyst rope leash for our own two adventure companions. Very happy with the leashes!

Best leash ever purchased!

I have had dogs for over 20 years and after so many different leashes, I am so happy I found pilot gear leashes! I love the feel in my hands, I love the color and look and I especially love the fact that it is recycled from old climbing rope! I will definitely be buying more and gifting for all my dog mama friends!

Exactly what I wanted!

I have been on the hunt for a well made, lightweight, durable leash for awhile. I wanted to specifically support a Canadian brand, and thanks to Pilot Pet Gear, I was able to check off all the must haves! This leash is strong, feels nice in the hand, is light, and made right here in BC! Thrilled that this arrived today right before our walk. I couldn't be more pleased!
