About our bestselling agility slip lead
An agility slip leash is a celebration. You’ve worked so hard to grow into the team that you are – a unique human and dog duo that is capable and confident to go to trial.
There is much hard work to come after you step into the ring for the first time, but your agility slip leash represents an incredible commitment to your sport, your dog, and to running fast and playing hard.
Get ready to make memories.
Fleece Martingale Leash
If your dog enjoys tugging, they will fall in love with this tug leash again and again after every run. Feel the rush of a thrilling course by playing tug of war as you leave the ring. There’s no need to fill your hands with both a leash and a toy reward when you can minimize. Celebrate a job well done with your leash itself! Efficiency means everything under the pressure of getting from crate to ringside and back again, doesn’t it?
For dogs that aren’t a fan of tugging on their leash, you’ll appreciate the weight and thickness of this fleece braid. Confidently grab your leash and slip your dog. There is a generous 10″ slip section at the end of the collar. That means no fumbling or catching the collar on your dog’s fur. We know how shaky a human’s hands can get from ring nerves!
For Midi Dogs | Blending function & aesthetic
The 1″ or 1.5″ collar width options, along with the fleece leash design, makes this slip leash ideal for medium sized agility dogs. Examples of medium breeds includes Border Collies, Miniature American Shepherds, and dogs roughly between 20 – 40 lbs who tug politely.
If you have a mini dog with a neck measurement of 11″ or less, you may prefer the lighter, thinner Toy Dog slip leash. On the other hand, if you have a maxi dog, which is a dog who pulls strongly, is over 40 lbs or is exceptionally hard on tug toys, we recommend our most robust braided slip leash.
Personalization | Embroidered Dog Leash
The collar of your slip lead is personalized with embroidery. Up to 10 embroidery text characters (including spaces) are included with your purchase. You can choose the color and font for the ultimate control in designing your perfect leash. Alternatively, if you’d like to leave that to the expert, just select “Brie’s choice” and Brie will choose on your behalf.
Need some extra flare? There are lots of stylish stocked embroidery symbols you can add to your martingale leash to make your dog’s personality shine. We can also create simple embroidery symbols from scratch to build a meaningful gift or honor a special event.
If your dog is nervous about being slipped, we encourage adding a buckle to your slip collar. This will make entering and exiting the ring a less stressful experience, particularly for a young dog or a pressure sensitive soul. Learn more about how adding a buckle to your slip leash can improve your ringside experience.

How it’s Made | Agility Slip Leash
Brie hand-makes your agility slip lead from scratch when you order, according to your color and embroidery specifications.
High strength threads and metal hardware are used to close each seam. The braided fleece is hand-knotted tightly for security. Brie has carefully sourced quality webbings and fleeces so your gear will withstand the tests of the trialling season.
Grab a measuring tape, and gently pull it snug around your dog’s neck. Do not place any more than one finger between your dog’s neck and measuring tape. If the measurement reads between sizes, size down. Do not size up or add “wiggle room.” The collar must be the exact size of your dog’s neck in order for it to tighten snugly. At trials in particular, consider how stressed your dog will be. It’s very important to size down so your dog can’t back out of their slip leash! Visit Brie’s slip leash sizing guide for more information on measuring your dog.
Each custom leash is approximately 5 ft long. This is measured from the base of the collar (including the slip section) to the end of the leash handle. If you need your leash to be a different length, please click here to add a leash length modification to your order.
Processing times | Custom Slip Leads for Dogs
Handcrafting your tug leash takes time. In order to get each detail right on your order, Brie typically takes 2 to 3 weeks to complete and ship custom leashes. However, processing times do vary by the time of year and number of orders Brie is working on. Be sure to double check the current processing time in the store banner. If you are on a deadline, we recommend skipping the line-up by rushing your order.
When you place your order, be sure to check your email regularly. Brie will keep you posted on her progress as she creates your martingale slip leash.
