November 1 - 10, 2014

I will be at the English Springer Nationals in Missouri and unable to fill any orders.

I will have access to email and can answer questions, but orders will need to be finalized when I return to the office.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Due to some hand and wrist issues, I am not accepting any kangaroo braiding orders for the foreseeable future. I am sorry for any inconvenience. While I may be braiding once and awhile, I decided it was best to not add people to a waiting list if I didn't think I would get to them timely. So, instead, I have added an "Available" page under the Kangaroo Lead heading above. Finished kangaroo items will be listed on this page as they are available.

However, I am still accepting orders for my other items, including article bags, handler items and prong collars.


Regardless of the braider you decide to purchase from, look through their items. Look at the tightness of the braid, the smoothness of the product. Look at the way they connect the hardware to the lead. Kangaroo is a very strong leather, however, all leads should be round braided through the hardware and then backbraided for attachment. You do not want two strands of leather holding your snap on. If they have pictures that can be enlarged, you normally can tell a lot about the quality of the braiding (though not necessarily the quality of the leather). If you want beads on your leads, look to see how the beads are secured. If the beads are not secured properly, they will move on the lead over time. The main thing that I would advise against, is purchasing a lead at a dog show. These are mass produced leads and will not last as long as a custom braided lead.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience.

Why should small dogs have all of the fancy show equipment? We make kangaroo leads and collars for BIG dogs too! All kangaroo items are available in 4, 6 or 8 strand designs.
