What Are the Benefits of Rope Products?
There are several benefits in choosing rope accessories for you and your pup! Our rope leashes and collars are handmade using traditional rope techniques found in boating and sailing. We chose to create leashes and collars using these techniques because they are proven to be durable, and often create beautiful finished pieces.
Rope tends to be soft for both your hands, and your dog's neck - it's the perfect choice for dog's with sensitive skin! And for dog's with long hair - there's no need to worry about our collars tangling or matting the hair around the neck.
Which Rope Should I Choose?
Cotton: Our all natural, 100% cotton rope is soft, flexible and durable. The perfect choice for walks, or for lounging around the house. Our hand-dyed cotton collection offers a wide range of colors that can be customized in any way you may need! It wears best, and keeps it's vibrant color if kept out of mud and water.
Xtra Soft Cotton: American Made plush cotton rope is soft on the hand, lightweight and comes in a variety of bold colors. This rope can be machine washed, and will not fade.
Hemp: We use organic hemp that has not been bleached, dyed or chemically processed in any way. It is an eco-friendly choice that is nearly indestructible. Hemp rope feels soft against the hands, and wears well through water, dirt and mud. May feel stiff when new, but with some use the rope relaxes nicely.
How Do I Care for my Leash/Collar?
Hand dyed leashes can be machine washed. Place leash(es) in a mesh garment bag in the washing machine. Use a mild, color safe detergent, and wash on the HOT cycle. Air dry only. In order to prevent staining, be sure to rinse/wash leashes as quickly as possible after they become dirty.
Please keep your leash out of reach of your dog when not in use - we cannot replace any leash damaged due to chewing.
How Do I Measure my Dog's Neck?
Each collar is tailor made to fit your dog. In order to get a perfect fit, we ask that you provide your dog's CURRENT neck measurement. In order to get an accurate measurement, it is best to use a soft measuring tape.
(1). With your dog in a stand or sit, wrap the soft tape around the center of the neck.
(2). Soft tape should be snug around the neck. Make sure there is no slack, but also that it is not too tight. The skin around the soft tape should not "bulge."
(3). The end, marked 0, should overlap the soft tape. Where it lands is your dog's neck measurement.
(4). If the measurement lies between 2 numbers: Round down if it is less than halfway between; Round up if it is 1/2 or greater.
Which Rope Thickness Should I Choose?
We offer 3 different rope thicknesses to accommodate all dogs including the smallest and the largest breeds! 1/4" rope is recommended for toy/small breeds (typically 12 lbs or less for our cotton leads), 3/8" rope for small/medium breeds, and 1/2" rope for medium/large breeds.
