About Leading The Way

Originally conceived in the spring of 2003. Leading The Way’s aim has always been to make leather dog collars and leads from the finest materials for the pet lover and their best friend. We have had a break for a few years and after lots of enquiries we have decided to start making our handcrafted items again. We have got some fabulous new designs for you and we can guarantee the same outstanding quality collars and leads made here in the UK.

As an accomplished leather worker Sarah has worked for the leading designer Bill Amberg and companies such as Ford, HMV and Harrods have commissioned items. OK Magazine, Marie Claire, Elle Decoration and Your Dog magazine are just a few of the publications that have featured her work.

The business came about when Connor, Sarah’s dog, came into her life. ‘I couldn’t find a collar and lead combination of suitable quality and thought there must be a gap in the market for dog owners like myself who want a good quality stylish product.

Connor is sadly no longer with us but you’ll see lots of pictures of Mia my black Labrador, following in Connors paw prints and modelling what we make.

Our specialty is creating beautiful leather collars for whippets and greyhounds. We’ve added the most beautiful Merino sheepskin for a truly luxury leather collar for any sight hound.

We hope you enjoy looking through our site and if you cant find what you’re looking for please get in touch and we would be happy to discuss and design a bespoke leather collar or lead for you.
