LOU / Lead
The LOU lead is a special piece of bridle, made with Swedish “överfettet” vegetable tanned leather that has been completely immersed in vegetable fat, making it exceptionally resistant to the elements and very hardwearing. This leather will not get stiff and dry in the cold or after a rainy day.
The lead is handmade using traditional leather crafting techniques and designed with minimalistic aesthetics in mind.
As with all Canem Studio products the LOU range of leads are made to order in our Norwegian workshop.
Lead size is a real personal preference, however we do have some pointers:
Classic (1cm): Looks well balanced on collar sizes XS-M and suits dogs up to 15kg.
Wide (1.6cm): Looks well balanced on collar sizes M-XL and suits dogs from 15kg and up (or smaller heavy pullers).
100 cm : Perfect for keeping your pup close to you (for example in the heavily trafficked city)
140 cm : The perfect middle ground and a good "go to" length for dogs of all sizes.
180 cm : A little more lead to play with and a bit more sniffing freedom for your pup.
200 cm : If you prefer a proper long lead, this is the way to go.
(We usually recommend shorter leads for bigger breeds and longer leads for the smaller breeds for the simple reason that a smaller dog will naturally be closer to the ground and further away from your hand.)
