Our Bay Line Traffic Leash was originally made at the request of a group of Deer Hound owners who loved to hike together. Deer Hounds, like many large breeds stand tall and long leashes become cumbersome. The Bay Line Traffic Leash is 12 inches in length and clips on and off collars or harnesses with ease. What can a 12 inch lead do? The Bay Line Traffic Leash has many uses. First, it’s a short leash for large breeds including Mastiffs, Great Danes, Deer Hounds and St. Bernards. The opposite end of the leash has a brass ring that transforms this leash into an extension when you clip on your regular leash. Tired of leashes dragging on the ground when walking in the woods, at the beach or on trails? The Traffic Leash turns into a soft handled loop when both ends are clipped to the collar. Grasp your dog quickly to maintain leashed control.
