Biothane Traffic Handle Leash



Upgrade one of our classic leashes to include a traffic handle, for those times when you need to keep your dog close by! We offer two options for traffic handles:

  • High position (top of traffic handle is approx. 28” from bottom of leash)
  • Low position (top of traffic handle is approx. 18” from bottom of leash)

Please note: the colour selected for the handle of the leash will also be used for the traffic handle.

Plus, you can still enjoy all of the functionality that comes with our classic leashes.

Proudly handmade in our Vancouver, Canada studio.

A note about length: the 4/5/6ft options are measured with the leash handle clipped. Unclipping the leash to attach it to the handsfree adapter will add approx. 1/2ft to your leash length. For example, a 4ft leash will be 4ft with the handle clipped, and approx. 4 1/2ft with the handle unclipped and attached to your handsfree adapter.

About Biothane

Biothane is a coated webbing material that is strong, flexible and lightweight.

It's also waterproof, stink-proof, and stain-proof, making it extremely easy to care for and clean. This makes it our material of choice for pups that love to swim or get dirty!

We use the "Super Heavy" Biothane for all of our leashes, handsfree adapters and classic collars which has a substantial and luxe feel to it. Our adjustable quick release collars and martingale collars use the "Standard" Biothane.

Care Guide

One of the best things about Biothane is how easy it is to care for and clean. Simply soak your gear in warm soapy water as needed. You can use an old toothbrush to scrub away any stubborn dirt. Rinse away any remaining dirt and soap residue with clean water.

Solid brass hardware naturally oxidizes as it ages. It can leave tarnish marks against the biothane, especially on the lighter colours.

To remove tarnish marks, we recommend using a magic eraser or a small amount of rubbing alcohol. Please ensure to thoroughly rinse your product with soap and water before using your gear again.

While Biothane is easy to clean, it does still get dirty. Please keep in mind that lighter colours will show dirt and tarnish marks more easily, and will require more frequent cleaning to keep looking fresh!

Go handsfree!

Our handsfree adapter converts your traffic handle leash into a waist or shoulder leash.

Biothane Traffic Handle Leash


I love the craftsmanship of this leash. It's so durable and feels good in my hand. The material is thick and durable. I finally got to use the clip handle the other day when I tied my dog off to the leg of a table. It was awesome not having to unhook her and wrap the leash through. The traffic handle is thoughtfully positioned. Because of how it's made, my dog's foot doesn't get caught in the traffic loop either if I drop the leash. It's awesome. The colors are awesome and the moon charm is a sweet little addition. It's so well made and feels luxurious. My hand doesn't slip or hurt if my dog starts pulling either. No rope burns! It's great!

Amazing hands free leash

I love how it was so customizable. The quality of the product is amazing and it looks great!

From Germany

I ordered this leash to make walking with my dog ​​and stroller easier. Our dog runs almost completely free, but we still need the leash every now and then.
Since I work with my dog ​​and he doesn't wear a collar there, but I have to keep him on a leash between uses, a collar leash would be perfect for this system. In Germany we call something like this a retriver leash. maybe an idea. Thank you for this great leash/the tollw system with hands free

Fantastic leash!

I hadn't used a traffic handle leash previously but purchased this to match my dog's new collar and hands-free leash. I've loved it. The leash feels high-quality and has held up well over the past 4 months of use. It still looks beautiful and the low-positioned traffic handle is incredibly useful for keeping my dog safe on narrow sidewalks or when crossing a busy street!

Best long line EVER

i’ve tested out the long line for a few of our adventures and it has been an absolute game changer!! I also purchased the hands free adapter and it’s safe to say i’m in love. My favorite thing is being able to go out for trail walks while being able to keep both of my hands warm in my jacket and not have to worry about holding a leash, while also giving my pup the extended freedom that comes with using a long line. And it’s so easy to clean and doesn’t tangle!! I wish I would have found this sooner it has been amazing!!!!
