All about our slip leash for small dogs
You’ve worked hard and overcome many challenges unique to working with a small dog in dog sports. You are ready to celebrate your training accomplishments and move on to the next adventure. That deserves something special.
Your agility slip leash is a symbol. It represents your passionate commitment to your sport, your dog, and to running fast and playing hard.
We know that small dogs love to tug, too.
That’s why we have created the first totally personalized slip lead for small dogs.
If your small dog loves to tug, they will appreciate the thickness and grip of this tug leash, created especially for their big hearts and little mouths. We took the bulk and heaviness out of our other slip lead designs and left only the best parts for toy and mini breeds.
If tugging isn’t your dog’s way to celebrate at the end of your run, you’ll love how lightweight this toy dog agility lead is. You can confidently slip your dog without worrying about weighing them down.
Mini Dog Design | Best slip lead for small dogs
This slip leash is best for dogs under 20 lbs with a neck measurement of up to 11.” If your dog is bigger, we recommend our agility slip leash for medium sized dogs.
This leash is made with black 3/4″ wide webbing to fit small neck sizes. When you consider the fleece border on the collar, the overall width of the collar is approximately 1″ wide. Note, however, that there is a break-in period for our handmade products. The fleece edging on collars and leash handles will soften and mould around the edge of the webbing with time. Therefore, the fleece border won’t make the collar bulky on a tiny neck.
The leash length of your mini dog slip leash will be 5 ft when it arrives. However, the braid section of the leash is super stretchy! The leash will lengthen to about 6 ft after you begin using it regularly. If you need your leash to be a length that is different than 5 ft, please click here to add a leash length modification to your order. Note that changing the length of your leash will only alter its starting length. Expect it to stretch!
Personalization | Embroidered Dog Leash
We understand how important it is for your small dog to have their name on their collar, just like the bigger dogs do! Like our slip leashes for larger dogs, Brie is happy to embroider your dog’s name or other text of your choosing up to 10 characters on the collar. Other makers may shy away from stitching little embroidery on tiny collars, but Brie is up to the task.
We insist that all dogs can run fast and play hard, and offer sports gear designed to meet the needs of dogs of every size and shape.
Personalization | Leash Handle
The oversized padded leash handle of your slip lead presents another opportunity to tell your dog’s story. There is room on your handle for up to 23 characters including spaces. If you’d prefer the handle to be plain, leave the “Handle Embroidery” box blank above.
You are welcome to choose your embroidery details including font and color options. Some fonts, along with drop-case letters will make the embroidery smaller. If you would like us to stitch in a font that will be as large as possible, select “Brie’s choice.”
Due to the small space constraints on the 3/4″ webbing, embroidery symbols cannot be added to this particular slip leash.

How it’s Made | Small Slip Leash
Brie makes your agility slip lead from scratch when you place your order. She crafts your gear based on the selections of color, fonts, and sizing that you enter above.
Durability is an important consideration in Brie’s workshop, because even a small dog will put their leash to the test! Only strong threads and carefully chosen metal hardwares are used to construct your slip leash. Brie has meticulously picked out quality materials to use in her sewing so that your gear will withstand the tests of the trialling season.
Take a soft measuring tape, and gently loop around your dog’s neck. Pull it snug, gently, but do not over-tighten your grip or place fingers underneath the tape against your dog’s neck. 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. It’s very important to size down when in doubt, so that your dog can’t back out of their slip leash! Visit Brie’s slip leash sizing guide for more information on measuring your dog.
Processing times | Custom Slip Leads for Dogs

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.
