Lightweight but Strong Dog Lead

The Andrew James extendable dog lead is ideal for small to medium sized dogs such as toy breeds, terriers and spaniels with a maximum weight of 15kg (33 lbs or 2.4 stone). It has a maximum pull weight of up to 50kg (110 lbs or 7.9 stone), this is the force the dog will put on the lead, not the actual weight of the dog. 

Please note: We do not recommend using this product if your pet weighs more than 15kg. 


Automatic Extension & Retraction with Locking Facility

This retractable dog lead extends to a super long 8 metres which lets you give your dog the freedom to run around whilst ensuring you remain in control. You can set it to automatically extend and retract as your dog moves, or use the button to lock it at your desired length. The short length of 50cm means you can keep your dog close for walking on pavements, near traffic or around distractions like other dogs, farm animals and small children. We’ve also included reflective strips in the first part of the lead for extra safety at night.

What is This Long Dog Lead Made Of?

The handle is made of plastic and weighs just 30g so it’s your dog that will tire you out, not the weight of the lead. There’s an ergonomic rubber grip for extra comfort and the two control buttons are easy to reach on top.

The lead itself is made of strong woven fabric for the first 50cm then has 7.5m of heavy duty nylon rope dog lead.


Can You Use This Lead for Training?

This extendable dog lead is designed for multipurpose use, so you can use it for general walking as well as training. The extra long length means its great to use during lessons about sit, stay and come. You can also use it during training sessions to stop pulling taking advantage of the automatic retraction and tasty treats like chicken, sausage or cheese!

Dog Training Tips

Andrew James is full of dog owners and we love our fur kids big and small. Here’s some of the best dog training tips we’ve found on the internet from various sources, and some of our own. 

Set your boundaries and be consistent.

When you get your new dog or puppy make sure there are a set of ‘house rules’ and that everyone sticks to them. For example, if you set a rule of no tidbits from the table then sneak down a sliver of chicken just because your pup is giving you ‘that’ face, how will they learn that begging at the table is wrong? The same is true for training words and hand gestures, make sure you use clear signals that are significantly different enough from each other not to be confusing.

Remember, body language is as important as words.

Despite what we like to convince ourselves, dogs can’t speak English. They are just as likely to associate your body gestures, facial signals and tone of voice with commands as the actual words you speak.

Keep training short, sweet and regular.

It’s better to do a little every day than one long session a week. Your dog will be more engaged, retain more and leave you less frustrated!. Also, remember that all dogs are unique and will learn at different speeds to other dogs you may have owned, or other dogs you see out and about, so try not to compare.

You’ll need lots of healthy treats.

Most dogs are led by their stomachs and will find food treats the best reward for reinforcing positive behaviours. This means you need to make sure your treats are healthy enough to be fed in larger quantities. Definitely don’t use chocolate and avoid high calorie, high fat treats as well as those that will distract your pet for a longer period such as bones. Some of the best ones we’ve tried include little bits of chicken, fish or sausage. Professional working dogs like police dogs and sniffer dogs are trained using a favourite toy and play.

Always end on a positive.

Make sure you end each session with something your dog can do, even if it’s a simple sit. This means every session ends with a positive so both you and your dog will be happy to train again the next day.

Extendable Dog Lead 8m

What a Total Piece of Crap. Bought it less than 3 weeks ago and already it is broken. My little jack Russell dog extended it gently to its full length of 8 metres - and after that it it would not retract and so became useless. It is constructed of a similoar standard to the ones you see in a town centre discount Poundshop. I advise all to pay a bit extra and get a Flexi retractable lead. They are nearly indestructible. My shoddily-constructed Andrew James one is now my washing line as I threw the box away, so I couldnt return this abombination back and get a refund, much to my annoyamnce. So do yourself a FAVOUR, and stay WELL CLEAR of this very over-priced and pathetic product, as it's a Major Turkey!!! :-(

8m Retractable Dog Lead with Reflective Strips

No reflective strips and buttons a bit slippery if you have gloves on.
