Online or via pickup, we provide organic, eco-friendly, and chemical-free products, plus items to beautify your home and spirit. As a small volunteer-run nonprofit, we can't compete with the pricing at large stores. However, having no paid staff allows all our net proceeds to fund cancer research and  treatment for working dogs. Sit, stay & shop for what truly matters — health, home, happiness and healing.


Luxuriously Soft Bull-hide Fully Twisted Leads
We are dedicated to providing handcrafted quality braided leather products for your dogs. There is no stitching or rivets used as these tend to pop or break long before your lead is worn out.  All of the products are individually crafted with simple hand tools, with no mass production or machinery.

We love the bull-hides as they are more stretchy and springy than the latigos. They are also wonderfully soft and supple right from the beginning. That means there is no working in of the leather, that can takes years of use. It is just immediately luxurious in your hands. 

Our favorite leashes are leather ones that have been used from training classes to walks to whatever. And, the braided ones are the best. But, we never had a bull-hide lead before and cannot believe the difference.

Our Alfie (12 years of age in this photo) is sporting one of these gems. This particular lead is 3/4" wide in the colors of Sand and Tobacco. It is the perfect width for larger dogs. Be sure to click on Alfie to see a supersized view.

Bull-hide leads are simply stunning. They look good. They smell good. And, they feel good. They are also strong and long lasting. So long lasting that you will probably never need another lead again for your dog.

This color combination of the colors sand and tobacco are simply perfect for light and golden colored dogs. Honestly, all persons owned by a Golden Retriever need to treat themselves to one of these fabulous Sand/Tobacco combo leads. We also like twisting together two of the same color and have both pure tobacco/tobacco and rich chocolate/chocolate leads.

The colors tobacco and black are wonderful for dogs such as the Bernese Mountain Dog, Newfoundland, Saint Bernard, and more. Here are the 12 available bull-hide colors. Be sure to click on them to see their supersized versions.

Barbara Peterson,  winner in our 2012 Take a Bite Out of Cancer Raffle selected this lead as his desired prize. She selected a Chocolate/Chocolate Bull-Hide Twist, 6 ft long and 3/4" wide. We actually have the very same one for our Alfie as it is nice to have both solid and dual-colored versions :-).

Rob Kessel, a winner in our 2012 Take a Bite Out of Cancer Raffle selected this lead as his desired prize. Let us tell you about Rob Kessel. Not only does he volunteer and do fabulous work with CA's Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue & Sanctuary, but he bought many, many raffle tickets and just donated back some of his winnings. You see he won the $100 store gift certificate and decided on getting one of our FABULOUS MUST-HAVE bull-hide leashes. That left him $26 to spend but he just wanted the foundation to have it back.

Here are his comments about his prize: "Here is Maddy with her new lead. It's very comfortable. I walk a lot of the dogs that pull hard and this lead almost feels padded."

Martingale Collar Option

These collars are helpful for dogs that have heads that are smaller than their necks like greyhounds, whippets, pugs, Wheaton terriers, and Jack Russell terriers. When adjusted correctly the dog is never choked, but the collar stays snug around the dog's neck until the pressure is released. The collar works like this: 

  1. Loosen the collar diameter with the tri-glide and slide the collar around your dog's neck. 
  2. Tighten it up with the tri-glide to the correct size. 
  3. Attach your leash to the collar's D ring.
  4. When the dog pulls, the loop up front on the collar will tighten so your dog cannot escape their collar.
