    Anyone know where I can find some? I tried a search on etsy without much luck.

    A lot of the ones I'm finding are for sighthounds and about 1.5-2 inches wide on the collar. I'd like to find one where the collar is about 3/4 inch wide and preferably find someone who offers different designs on the collar portion. The ones I'm finding that aren't super wide on the collar portion are just plain solid blacks and reds for the most part.

    I want the martingale leash combos where the leash is actually attatched to the martingale and not separate.

    Lightfoot Livery, Inc.

    That is what I use for Auggie's agility lead, he runs naked so the whole thing just comes off. It's rope so no designs but they at least have colour options... I'll be buying one for Payton and Pepper next time I see that company at a show.

    Interested in all the responses here. I'm thinking about getting one from Rush to Tug. I've only heard good things about them too.

    I was going to suggest Rush to Tug too. I've never bought anything from them, but they have some super nice looking leads. I have some serious want.


    ETA: OMG Logan NEEDS the "I Herd Ewe" one :rofl1:

    My friend makes martingale and leash combo sets for agility. You come to a trial hear and everyone in their uncle owns one, they are quite awesome. You can also message her about different ribbons or different kinda combos.

    Nothing fancy, but Mendota makes them. They call them "Dog Walkers" and "Big Dog Walkers". They're on the bottom of this page: British Style Slip-Lead

    I was going to suggest Mendota, too. I have a slip and a 6' leash by them. Really cute colors and easy on the wallet too!

    Skittle... I could make one for you in almost any color/print you desire. ;)

    Is it for Bamm? Because I might have some more of the "Flintstone" ribbon left... It was a 7/8" wide ribbon, so I'm not sure how that would work out on a 3/4" collar, but I'm willing to take a shot at it if you want me to. :D

    Thanks guys. Maxfox, its actually for Cricket for agility. She's starting agility classes at the end of this month. But... I actually wouldn't mind having one for Bamm with a 4 or 5ft lead honestly. I don't know how much of the ribbon you have left but even if the collar part was flintstone and the leash part was plain black that would rock.

    It's holding up great! It gets really dirty at trials with dirt surfaces (like any lead would) but it washes up super easily and looks like new!

    The only issue some have mentioned with it is the loop part on the martingale is still pretty stiff and they don't like that. I don't mind it really, it doesn't seem to bother Izzie.

    Thank you :)

    Ya the stiffness of the loop wouldn't really bother me. I absolutely love their designs. My boss said one of her agility students swears by the brand
